APA! is currently overbooked with dogs. In fact, they've run out kennels. Meet one great canine candidate below, but the organization also implores potential adopters to visit the APA! site in order to clear a kennel for a new rescue.

Name: Elsie

Sex: Female

Breed: Terrier, Pit Bull mix

Current weight: unknown

Adult size: Large

Sign: Cancer

Age: 5 years 8 months

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Adoption Donation: $50

Location: On site

Surprise fact: She enjoys a good tea party. Preferably dressed as a sunflower.

What APA! says about Elsie:

  • You wont have to convince this girl to get close to you; she loves to rub against her human friends and trainers to get a nice head scratch or hug.
  • She will do best as the only dog in the household.

Why APA! says Elsie deserves your love:

  • A well-tempered dog, she was made an honorary Girl Scout during a troop visit and would be great with kids.
  • She's very easy on a leash and knows basic commands like "sit."

In summary: If you've been concerned about introducing a large dog into your household with young children, Elsie will push all of your worries to the wayside. She's more than ready to settle into a home for permanent belly-rubs and playmates. 

To donate or adopt Elsie, call APA! today at 512-961-6519.

Added incentive: This Friday through Sunday, APA! is holding a "Spring into Action with Your New Best Friend." All large breed dogs, including Elsie, over six months old this will have their adoption fee waived with a monetary donation.
