Hellooooooo Portland! And places beyond. My name is Elsa. I'm a wirehaired dachshund mix who is guaranteed to melt the coldest of hearts. For starters, I love to be wherever you are. Ready to hunker down for the winter with some hot tea and movies? I'll be curled up right there by your side the whole time. I also love, love, love to go for walks and dance adorably whenever I see the leash. I love other dogs, and respectful kids, too. There may be a small adjustment period at first, but I promise that I know I should potty outside. I've even been using the Poochie Bells in my foster home to let them know I want out. Apparently that means I'm smarter than your average snow princess. I admittedly complain about being in my crate, but I do quiet down eventually, once I'm really super extra sure that you've truly left the premises. Then I just nap like a good girl and dream of when you'll come home and we can walk and play. With a little more work, my crate habits should be perfect. I came in as a stray, so I can't really share much about my past, except to say that I've "let it go" and am looking forward to my future with you! I'm about 2 years old, and I weigh 7 lbs. If you would like to meet me, please contact the Foster Coordinator at email@example.com or 503-988-6247.
