Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Elsie Needs Your Help

Elsie - 1-2 years old, fostered in Florida
Dog ID#: 151531-P-B-KY

Hi I am Elsie, when I came to PRO I was very thin, weighing only 33 pounds. I have put on lots of muscle in the past few months, probably because I am so active. I can still stand to gain a few more pounds, currently I am 41 pounds. They call me a Pocket Pointer, since I am smaller than most. I am about 19-20 inches tall, at the shoulder.

I am a little shy in new situations, but amazingly sweet. I really love all dogs and cats I meet, though I am very bouncy so some donít love me back as much as I loves them. Eventually I will just point at the cat, just in case you were not aware of where it is. I belly crawl towards new people, sometimes I do it just for the belly rub, which makes my foster mom giggle.

I am crate, and potty trained, and know a few obedience commands. I donít pull too much on a leash, and I donít mind going for a car ride. I LOVE belly rubs more than anything in the world. Toys are pretty great too, but they have to be super-duper strong since I am very hard on them. I have not been destructive in my foster home to anything, but my toys. Finally I really, really, really want to catch a BIRD, or maybe a squirrel.

My perfect home would be where I can be a companion first. I really love kids too, but you may want to supervise me for a bit so I donít scratch, or nip when I get so excited! I need lots of love, affection and a good amount of exercise. I would probably do best in a home with a physical fence, so I can get out and run and play as much as I like. I think I would love to bird hunt too! I am not afraid of gunshots, but bring out the vacuum, or any other household appliance and I get nervous, but what girl doesnít?
