Elle is a tiny, friendly pup looking for a foster, or even better, forever home so that she can leave that yucky shelter and come to the DC area into a warm home. Elle is still young so she will need someone to help her with her manners and obedience, as well as who will give her plenty of exercise and walks. She is also quite little, so she may fit best with a home without young kids who can easily overwhelm her.
Like most shelter dogs, Elle may need a refresher on housetraining and crate training. We ask all of DC PAWS’ fosters to work on both house and crate training with their foster dog.
If you are interested in adopting Elle, please submit an adoption application at http://dcpawsrescue.org/adoption-application/.<p>

<p>About DC PAWS Rescue</p>
<p>Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the county’s animal control facility, which lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public. Without a mechanism for local adoptions, all animals not claimed within the mandated hold period are euthanized. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is really the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter clinic in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.</p>
