Facts about Elsa

  • Breed: Poodle (Miniature)/Schnauzer (Miniature) Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Elsa was surrendered by her owner who tossed her in our volunteer’s car. Poor Elsa had been ignored and unloved by her previous owner. Considering her terrible past, she is one sweetheart of a dog. Elsa is about 3 years of age and has an all black coat of semi curly hair. She currently weighs 10 lbs which is a good adult weight for her. Although her owner said she was a Maltese, her exact breed is not known. Elsa is very fearful of men and easily frightened by loud noises and sudden movement near her head. She acts very much like a dog that has been physically abused. Once Elsa feels secure, she has a sweet personality and thoroughly enjoys gentle caresses and kind words. She would do best in a calm home with a woman. Now all Elsa needs is a caring person to share her affection.

You can meet Elsa this SATURDAY, Nov. 26th at UNLEASHED BY PETCO, 10625 Scripps Poway Parkway, San Diego, CA 92131 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Our Adoption Process...

When a rescue Maltese is ready adoption, each dog is listed on www.petfinder.com and www.adopt-a-pet.com Prospective adoptive persons submit an adoption application. The person is interviewed and references are checked. Prior to approving an adoption, a home visit is done to determine if the home provides a safe environment for a rescue Maltese.

An adoption fee is paid at the time of adoption. Adoption fees and donations are the sole financial source for payment of medical care for all of our rescue dogs.
