Sugar and Spice with a splash of Swagger.....  Elba is a dog with CHARACTER!  This four year old pittie mix may have had a rough start in life, but she is busy making up for it now.  A happy dog that LOVES people, Elba greets everyone she meets with a smile.  She adores her humans and is eager to please.  If left to her own devices, however, she can become a little bit of a diva.  To balance this, she requires a home that understands the need for both love AND structure.  In the home, she is the perfect houseguest...  she knows all of her basic commands, is house trained and never ever chews on anything!  Her leash skills could use a little work, but (with practice) she is improving every day!       


Although Elba has lived well with other (well balanced / passive) dogs before, she has shown a tendency to become reactive to small (yippy) dogs and other large (confident) pups that challenge her.  For this reason, we would characterize Elba as being Selective when it comes to other pups and would require a slow introduction.  Her play style is best described as rough and tumble, so a furry housemate that could handle her energy would be required.  But once properly matched - Elba LOVES to play!  


With Elba's current fosters moving to Florida soon, we are now in the unfortunate position of trying to find another home for her by the end of September.  If you are interested in Fostering or Adopting her please contact us for a private meet and greet today.
