HOMEWARD BOUND - ADOPTED - now living happily in Omaha, NE!
Elsa is an adorable Havanese that is still quite a bouncy puppy. She was purchased as a baby and loved very much but her person did not have the time to provide Elsa with the training she needed to keep her bright mind stimulated. As a result, Elsa became somewhat of a wild child. As typical with the breed, she is highly intelligent and wants to be taught tricks to entertain people. Right now, Elsa feels as though she wants to be in control because she has not been shown that she does not need to be. It is worrisome to a young, energetic, smart dog to be allowed to do things willy nilly and this can cause anxiety. Elsa lives in the sunporch with a big group of other small dogs and she is doing very well. She's even convinced Tres, our elderly Sanctuary Sweetheart, to play like a puppy! She adores people and the company of the other pups and is learning to mind her manners. Elsa needs a home with people home often as Havanese want to be with their humans and don't like to be left alone for long periods of time. Her new family will need to understand that they must continue to assert control in order for Elsa to reach her full potential as a happy dog. She will thrive upon lots of activity with her beloved people.
