Elsa waits for her family to return. Sadly that will never happen because Elsa was surrendered when they moved. A volunteer shared her story and the reality of this dog’s heartbreak.
“When I first went into the kennels, she was on the other side … not coming to me … with her body shaking.”
Armed with treats of hot dogs, the volunteer sat with the frightened and confused dog on the other side of the kennel. Elsa didn’t leave.
“She just sat with me. She took treats very soft mouthed. She never barked once,” the volunteer said.
According to the dog’s previous owner, Elsa is fine with bigger dogs, but doesn’t do well with smaller dogs and cats. She is only four-years-old and is said to be good with children and suitable for a new pet owner. Sadly, this girl is very broken now, and is in a small shelter which is filling up quickly.
