Beautiful Elsa is 5 years old and is having quite a tough time just now. Everything in her world has changed and she's rather bewildered, so her carers are trying to provide as much routine as possible, to help her settle. She's a very friendly girl but sudden movements and over handling can cause her distress, so we're taking a very slow approach, which she likes. She isn't used to going for walks so we're building that up slowly so that she can gain confidence, but she does seem to be enjoying the sunshine and exploring the centre.
Type of home needed
Elsa is very typical of her breed and we'd love to find her a home with a family that has Shar Pei experience. She needs to be allowed to go at her own pace, and will come on in leaps and bounds if allowed to do so. Elsa walks happily with other dogs but she doesn't enjoy face to face contact with them, so would be better suited to being the only dog at home. Due to Elsa's nervous nature and fear of sudden movements, we feel a home where any children are older teens would be best for her. She is house trained and used to travelling in the car. Elsa has some medical issues, but nothing unexpected from her breed!
More about me
If you are interested in adopting Elsa, please click "Come And Meet Me" below, you will also be able to discuss her health further with one of our team. Elsa will need a few visits paying to her at the centre before she goes home, due to that nervous nature.
