Elsie's Day out with volunteer Melissa
Initially lively she was a little stressed in the car, I don't think she has been anywhere other than in a car front seat, so that will need a bit of work to get her calmly into a safer place in a car boot to travel.
She has clearly been around children in the past and loves being fussed and greeted by other dogs, she just wants to please and is measured and passive with other dogs. A number of children made a bee line to her yesterday to stroke her (without my intervention) and she was fine, even being a little surrounded by attention at times, Elsie dealt with it well.
She was on an extension lead yesterday and responded to her name and came back every time without fail (she wasn't interested in the treat though!) She also started to respond to the click of the shorter bit of the extension lead as I reeled it in and walked closer to heel as the afternoon wore on. There is alot of potential here for Elsie's lead walking.
She sits for treats then gets excited and jumps up. I am sure that she will respond easily to a bit of training around this. She is still so young, there is plenty time for her to adapt to you. Elsie isn't a type of dog I would normally latch too but she stole my heart a bit yesterday... I lost my dog to ill health last year and will likely get a larger breed dog when ready again. In the meantime I would be hard pressed to not recommend Elsie to you all to consider giving a forever home to. Thanks to all who consider her and bigger thanks to those who step forward and give this lovely lady her forever home.
