Elise's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Elise's Story...
Elise is equal parts playful puppy and snuggly lap dog. She enjoys playing with tug toys and balls then cuddling up while her fosters watch television. Elise likes people of all ages from respectful toddlers to seniors. She loves attention and is persistent in getting visitors to pet her. Elise sleeps in a kennel at night and when her fosters are away from home. She is nearly potty trained and does well with frequent trips outside in the evening. She is good about letting her fosters know when she needs to go out, but will have an accident if they are not paying attention. She is working on learning to walk on a leash, knows how to sit, and is learning other commands. Elise gets along with the foster's resident dog, but may do best in a household where she doesn't have to compete for attention. Elise is estimated to be about 1 year old and weighs about 9 pounds. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed and size when grown.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday April 16, 2016, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elise, a Minneapolis Papillon dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Papillon dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Papillon breeders who help with Papillon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
