About Elsa

Centre:
Breed:
Collie Cross (Border)
Age:
8 and over
Sex:
Female

Likes

Elsa is a sweet, sensitive girl looking for very kind and experienced owners. She is quite uncomfortable being handled so new owners will need to make multiple visits to build a relationship with her. Once comfortable, she will need all her basic training but she is a clever girl and willing to please. Elsa is not comfortable with other dogs but can walk alongside them, however she needs to be the only dog in the home. Elsa seems uncomfortable at times walking but once she has lost weight, she will enjoy gentle walks.

Type of home needed

Elsa is looking for owners who have experience of collies and also nervous dogs. She needs a home with its own private garden in a quiet, low dog populated area. Elsa will need a low visitor household as she is easily overwhelmed. Leaving hours will need to be built up but once settled, Elsa should be fine for a few hours.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Elsa, who is based at London (Harefield). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
