Looks like: Terrier Mix
Female, 6 years old, 10 pounds
Foster needed 12/11-12/12
Elise's primary aim in life is to find a lap to snuggle in and a person's eyes to gaze into. She is a quiet girl who loves to feel secure in any person's embrace. She loves to ride in a sling for the moments when you need both of your arms, but want to keep her close to your heart. She is a loyal, devoted companion.

With other dogs, Elise often feels the need to seem big, loud, and brave. When greeting other pups, she will sometimes initially rush up with a big bark, and then retreat with her tail wagging. If other dogs approach her while she's being held, she will tell them she would prefer to have this person to herself. She could learn a lot from being in a home with other gentle, but more confident dogs. She enjoys playing with companions of a similar size and energy level.

Elise has a heart murmur that doesn't slow her down. She will be scheduled for a cardiology consultation to decide if she is eligible to have procedures done.

Elise came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Shelter after she was found as a stray in Salinas.
