Comments: Have you ever seen a sweeter smile than Elodie’s? She has a lot to smile about these days. After she was found by a Good Samaritan running the streets with a horrific case of mange and with a body that showed she had recently nursed puppies, we took her in, spayed her so she would never have to care for puppies again, and got her mange all cleared up. She is still growing new hair, but her coat is now a lovely rust color all over and she is every bit as beautiful on the outside as she has always been on the inside. Despite her past, Elodie is sweet and playful and an all-around vibrant little dog. She has lots of energy and would probably excel at something like agility. Because she loves to play with other small dogs so much, her new home will need to have a playful little pup in it to be her buddy. She is a bit on the bossy side, so a slightly more laid-back partner will probably suit her best. She loves to play with her foster sister, Laney, so if you’re looking for two little funsters, they would be a great pair! Elodie may be energetic, but she is also pretty quiet and she likes cuddles. She is super kissy and likes to have your attention. She does not seem to care for children very much, so will need to have a home without regular children visitors. Elodie is really going to light up the lives of her forever family. If you would like that family to be yours, please fill out an application to meet her today!
