Elsa Needs a Home

About Elsa

My Name Is… Elsa

I Am… 4 Years Approx (I was not microchipped when I arrived)

I Am… An American Bulldog x Cane Corso

I Am… 47kg

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Elsa arrived as an emergency after another rescue got in touch asking if we could help.


Elsa is a very large dog weighing in at 47kg!

We believe that she hasn’t lived in a home environment before and she looks like she has had litters in the past too. She is clean in her kennel but new homes must be mindful that she may have some accidents if she hasn’t lived in a home before.

Elsa will be giving lots of assistance from the team with rehabilitation as she will require lots of training and is not used to being walked. Potential new homes must be willing to put in the work with training and go the extra mile with Elsa. Full support will also be provided by the rescue.

Elsa has shown to be amazing with people. such a gentle giant, loving and affectionate. She will take treats very gently.

She has displayed some mild guarding tendencies to people she has bonded and connected with. She will be looking for an experienced owner who can show her the way and not allow this behaviour as she settles. Elsa is quite the diva!

She will be looking for a home who can provide her with a lot of love and patience. She will also require a very secure and larger garden due to her size.


Under Assessments.


Pending Assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home

Help us find Elsa a home!

Do you have a home for Elsa?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families. We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth as the dogs in foster use our local vets and foster homes will be required to bring the foster dog back to us for any medical treatments.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. A home check and a vet check is required, with a £200 adoption fee, which contributes partially to kennel fees, vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neutering, flea/worming treatment and other veterinary costs. This adoption fee will contribute to the care of all our dogs.

We have a thorough rehoming programme to prepare you and your dog for each other. We also offer help and support for you both in the future. Learn about responsible ownership or contact us if you have any questions.

If you are considering fostering or permanently rehoming a dog, then please print off and complete one of the forms below:

Please note: We only rehome within a 2 hour driving radius of the Bournemouth area and do not place dogs in homes with children under the age of 6.
