I'm looking for a new home...

About Elsa

German Shepherd Dog (GSD / Alsatian)
2 to 5 Years


Elsa has been through a lot of change during her life already and would love to find her forever home to settle down with a family of her very own.

Type of home needed

Elsa can live with adults only and no other pets in her new home which must be near to the centre to allow regular visits. No one will be able to resist her gorgeous face with those gigantic ears, but Elsa's new family need to be committed to continuing her training both in the home and out and about on walks. She is a very eager learner though, so as well as the serious stuff she would be great fun to teach lots of tricks.

More about me

Elsa is a Loughborough Learner - She is still learning new skills and needs to have regular training. The team at Dogs Trust Loughborough will give you all of the information, help and support you will need to succeed. Elsa lives in a quieter area of the centre that visitors cannot access but please ask about her at reception.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Elsa, who is based at Loughborough. 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 £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee 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 can 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.
