💥🦸‍♀️🐕🦸‍♂️💥I NEED A HERO! I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light. They’ve gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon, and they’ve gotta be larger than life!COULD YOU BE MY HERO?!Hello everyone! The name is ELSIE, I’m just over a year old and they say I’m a Staffy mix because of my cheeky smile. I guess you’re wondering why I’m asking for a HERO?! Well… I really need one. My mates all talk about their forever homes, and it breaks my heart. That’s all I’ve ever wanted, but it seems at the moment that it’s never going to happen.Since being in CAA’s care I have had a few failed meet and greet’s, which really confused my foster carer as I play so well with her dogs big and small. CAA enlisted help from Laura at Be Good Dog Training, who was so much fun to be around (she let me cuddle and kiss her as much as I wanted). She assessed me in all my glory (there is a lot of it, just FYI), and gave my carer the verdict… I AM AMAZING! Well duh, I knew that… but apparently I would be an amazing companion dog to someone who is looking to spend QUALITY time with me at home.Unfortunately, all that awesomeness does come with its downfalls… I can be pretty unpredictable with other dogs (other than my carers – I know, weird!). Laura said this could be that I am just SUPER excited and then my brain quickly flips to aggression (I don’t mean it though and I can’t help it). I don’t like cats or those flappy things in cages, and I’m very loving and just want to smother everyone in attention… so maybe older kids would be best.NOW FOR THE HERO BIT… I really just need someone who will love me for me, and keep me feeling safe. My hero needs to understand that I find meeting new dogs far too stressful, so dog parks are out. I have a threshold of about 20m before I react to other dogs, so unless you can guarantee I won’t run into any off leash dogs on walks etc, I’d rather just stay with you in our safe space of the home and backyard. I know it sounds like I’m just a bit much… but I’m really not. I’m a beautiful girl who just wants you all to myself. The world can be scary and stressful, so I’d love to help you get through it with my big smile and sweet eyes (your reassurance and smiles would help me too).So what do ya say?! Will you be my hero? It will be you and me against the World, and I couldn’t be more excited at that thought. I know my family are reading this… please. Please consider me.CAA just want to see me stable and happy in a loving home, so my adoption fee has been reduced to just $50. I’m already desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and treated for fleas and intestinal worms. BIN0001102175969
