This lovely lady is Elsie, and she is an English Shepherd weighing 55 pounds and is approximately 8 years young. Elsie is a very spry adult dog, still having plenty of energy and play in her, and will run and bound and play with other dogs , but her very favorite pastime is keeping all of the young dogs and puppies in line. Elsie has taken the role of matriarch here, and she takes her job seriously. She’s great to have around as a babysitter. Being an adult dog, Elsie has perfect manners and no bad habits. She is the sweetest thing you ever saw. Elsie was originally found stray by a good Samaritan and was in horrible shape, very thin and had a lot of hair loss from demodex mange. We don’t know how a sweet, gentle dog like Elsie ever found herself homeless and in that condition, but we were sure glad to be able to get her back on the right track. She has gained weight and her fur has grown back and is a beautiful wavy coat with a nice sheen to it. Elsie did test positive for heartworms but has completed two rounds of slow-kill treatment, and the medication for the remainder of the year will be provided to her adopter. She has been fully vaccinated, microchipped, and is already spayed. Elsie loves the finer things in life like soft beds, treats, and tummy rubs, and we certainly think she deserves lots of all of those. She gets very excited at meal time and will “talk” to you while you get her food ready, which is simply adorable. We are offering Elsie for a special $100 adoption donation to a family who can spoil and pamper her for the rest of her days, and if interested, please download an adoption application from our website, www.twistedbranchaussies.com, and submit it to the email address at the top of the form.
