Facts about Elmo

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Elmo is a 8 year old Black Lab mix. Elmo has spent his whole life outside in a 10x01 kennel. When he came into foster he had never been inside a house. He has spent the few months just learning how to be a pet. He was very comfortable out in my fenced yard but would freak out in the house. He was afraid of everything inside. I had to actually go outside and leash him and dragged him in. Then it started to get cold and he finally decided that sleeping inside wasn't so bad. He will now come in when called and actually comes to the door and comes in own his own.

Elmo has never gotten on any of my furniture or chewed up anything. He has been the perfect house guest. He has discovered the big fluffy dog beds that appears just before bedtime each night and boy has he become really fond of them.

Elmo had never when for drive in the car and getting him in was quite a nightmare. We have been working on this for sometime now and he doesn't mind riding and is okay once he's in the car but is still a little hesitant about getting in.

Elmo hadn't had much leash training and at first walked in 10 foot circles. Guess he was just so used to only having 10 foot to walk before turning the corner in the kennel. He is doing really good on leash. Does still pull a little but is doing better every time he's leashed.

Elmo will come up to be petted but is not a real snuggy huggy kinda fellow. He is very loyal and will be right there with you and I'm sure with some time and patience he could become a snuggle bug.

Elmo graduated from the "New Leash on Life" program at the local prison where he spent 8 weeks being trained. He knows sit and stay really well.

Elmo is neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on prevention.

About Mercy Fund Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit animal rescue group. We started out as just a fund, at our local vet, to help pay for operations, etc for animals in need. Our organization is all volunteer. And foster based, because we do not have a shelter. We do not euthanize our animals to make room for more. We run totally on donations and are willing to take any type [money, food, toys, bedding, crates, etc]. Donations can be mailed to PO Box 2371, Marion NC 28752. We rescue animals in need, injured, sick, old, dying, and give them a second chance and the best life we can until a forever home can be found. We take animals most other rescues turn down we believe all animals and life is worth our efforts.
