Meet Elena, a 8-10 months old pit mix with a heart shaped nose.
She really is as sweet as she looks in the photo.
She’s also smart- she already knows how to sit for treats, and how to work *cough* effectively for them.
By “effective” I mean the big pleading puppy eyes.
If that wasn’t sweet enough, she is a big fan of snuggling.
She may not look like it, but she really is a cuddly lapdog at heart.
She also loves bellyrubs and will lean against you so you can give them.
One tip: make yourself comfortable before surrendering your lap.
You may not be able to get up after a while!
I’m sure Elena has more energy than she appears in the photos- she actually feels a little shy and unsure of herself at the moment, but she should be more active once she gains confidence.
It looks like it won’t take very long, especially if she gets lots of love.
If you are interested in Elena, please come visit her in Kennel 46. For more information on Elena, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
UPDATED: Here are the latest photos of Elena- she’s getting to be a more confident, happy girl who loves to play!
