Elsa and her littermates were born in the care of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society on Sept. 17 after their mother was brought to us in desperate need of a loving home.
We think Elsa may be a Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix, which means she will likely grow up to be about 70 lbs.
Elsa is a happy, healthy puppy. While an irregular heart beat was previously detected during a routine examination, additional cardiology testing found no serious issues.
She has since undergone her spay surgery and there were no irregularities noted with her heart at that time.
She will need another cardiac physical examination in April as part of her preventative care. It is possible Elsa may outgrow any heart irregularities she may have, which have not slowed her down in any way!
“Elsa is a sweet, shy little girl looking for her forever home!” her foster parent notes. “She is a huge cuddlebug and thinks she is a lap dog, even though she is going to be quite large.”
Elsa is crate trained, has been sleeping through the night, walks well on a leash, and is well on her way to being completely house trained. She is very food motivated and knows her “Sit,” “Paw,” and “Down” cues and is working on “Stay” and “Come.”
Elsa enjoys being around other dogs and would love to find a family with a fun dog friend to give her confidence.
Elsa is an extremely lovable but sometimes timid puppy who needs an adopter eager to put time and patience into her training.
