Hello there, I'm the majestic Elsa. I'm a 4-year-old spayed female Pit Bull. At 62 pounds, I'm a solid girl; I'm really strong and also really full of snuggles and affection! I love attention from people and could really bask in it all day long. I love going for walks and have been told that I have really good leash manners which is a great thing, they say! I get along with some other dogs and love children, but I would do best in an adult-only home since I am so strong and playful. I would like to go home with people that have some prior experience with dogs. The shelter's experience and time with me so far tells them that my new adopter and I would benefit greatly from an obedience class. In this case, it is required of my new adopter. Is that you? I sure hope so! Ask for Elsa, #A800022.
One of my volunteer friends took me on a field trip to her family's house for Thanksgiving. I was an angel in the car, sitting nicely in the backseat the entire time. Meeting new people was so fun, and I greeted everyone with kisses. It was the perfect opportunity to show off my tricks for some yummy snacks and belly rubs. I was even invited to come back again - that's always a good sign!
Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010. Our hours are weekdays from 11am-7pm and weekends from 11am-6pm (closed major holidays). Interested adopters must arrive at least 1 hour before close.
We do our best to update our listings regularly, but we can’t guarantee every animal you see is still available. It’s also typical for us to have animals who haven’t had their photos taken yet, so you are welcome to visit our adoption center and have a look around!
To check on an animal's adoption status, please call 650/340-7022 during normal business hours to speak with an adoption counselor or 650/340-7022 x823 anytime to hear a recording of our available animals (updated each morning). Emails will be returned as soon as possible, but please allow up to 48 hours during busy adoption periods like weekends.
