Elsa spent much of June attempting, like many others, to “beat the heat.” Our training was done indoors, in the house, or an air-conditioned mall. We often drove to semi-rural areas near Vernon to have an outdoor walk during the late evening. Co-raisers Trish and Berk took her camping.

Elsa was 18 months old in June and shows that she is, indeed, growing up. When in cape, she still struggles with dog and people distraction, as she is very social and likes to connect.

This little girl is going to be an amazing, loving companion for someone. It just takes one look into those wise brown eyes to know how she longs to find her purpose.
