Hike a Houlagan

Rescued as an expectant mother, Elsa had her babies, regained her figure, been spayed, and settled into life at the kennel. She cannot abide a crate - no doubt a remembrance of things past (sorry, Proust), but she loves people and craves a gentle hand.

We took Elsa to hike. She rested alone in the back of an air conditioned car and soaked up the attention - so the issue is a crate, not small spaces. We're seeing what a great dog Elsa really is!

Elsa is about 3-4 years old (at 8/31/16).

About Houlagans' Rest Corporation

About Our Rescue Group...

Many dogs have come through and found their special place and people, but many have not. It is the mission of Houlagans' Rest to be the rescue of last resort. We save and prepare for adoption dogs that have been rejected by others and are scheduled to be euthanized. This website is dedicated to help those dogs find their "forever homes".
