A lot of people are hesitant to adopt an older pet, but the people who do, never regret it. Thanks to Crystal Morrison from Frolic Images for sharing these beautiful photos of an Australian Shepherd mix as well as Elska’s story.
From Crystal: “This sweet older girl was adopted through A New Leash On Life in Huntsville, Alabama. Huntsville is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, so there are numerous outdoor locations that make great backdrops for beautiful portraits. I had a vision of capturing her beautiful black fur against a field of bright yellow flowers. The light on this particular day was spectacular, giving these images a really dreamy look. And Elska absolutely loved looking for squirrels in the forest!
She had been living at A New Leash On Life’s “Lodge” for a year. Tthe Lodge is a two-story home owned by A New Leash On Life, with a huge backyard that houses dogs & cats that are waiting to be adopted, when a volunteer, met her and fell in love with her. I can’t blame her! From her soulful eyes to her sweet graying muzzle, to her calm, laid back and loving demeanor, Elska is an all around great dog. She enjoyed a very comfortable life by her mom’s side, and together they visited at least nine states! Elska was an Australian Shepherd Mix (although we joke that she’s a Tennessee Valley Shepherd)
She lost her battle with cancer and crossed the rainbow bridge recently. Her mom gave her a wonderful life, though she only had her for less than a year. She was able to teach Elska that people can be trusted and show her true love during her final months.
And now she is free from pain and able to chase those squirrels to her heart’s content!”
