2-16-2019: PUPDATE:

Elsa is still looking for that perfect indoor 'hound-loving' home. Even with her vision impairment, she has learned to find and use the doggy door, and the few steps leading to the back yard. She would love a canine sibling to help show her the ropes She will require a fenced yard, but know that she sticks pretty close to you or a canine sibling when outside..

Elsa and her brother, Olaf, came to Green Dogs Unleashed looking for help with some specialized training, and then finding a forever home. At about 11 weeks old, sweet and lovable Elsa is DEAF and vision impaired, but she is working hard at learning her hand and touch signals. She is also working on potty-training.

This girl will need an active home with some fenced-in land to allow her to run, or a family with a 'runner' who will take her out for daily exercise. We don't mean a quick run around the block, but an actual runner who needs a partner for those long-distance runs (once she gets a little older). Agility training could also be an option. This dog is extremely energetic and tireless. It is very important that it gets daily vigorous exercise to prevent extreme indoor restlessness. This breed should not be taken on as a family pet unless the family can guarantee plenty of vigorous exercise. They need to be taken on a daily, brisk, long walk, jog or run alongside you when you bicycle. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as instinct tells a dog the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human. Teach them to enter and exit door and gateways after the humans. Apartment living is not suggested for a Foxhound.

Prior to adoption, Elsa will receive all "age-appropriate" vaccines, and will be spayed.

We are happy to consider applicants from out of state. However, if the applicant is approved, they must be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.

GDU does ask a minimum adoption donation of 300.00. This is a minimum donation and does not cover all expenses, as we are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum donation includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. This minimum donation does not even begin to cover the actual expenses each animal has while in rescue, but does go directly towards vet care for our rescue animals. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
