Bruiser's Story...
YOU MUST HAVE AN APPROVED APPLICATION ON FILE WITH JNMRF BEFORE CONTACTING US ABOUT ANY DOGS. Go to http://www.elkhoundrescue.org/adopt.htm to fill out the application to adopt

Bruiser is a 4-5 yr old male Norwegian elkhound mix. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and preventatives, and is housebroken. He has been a stray and is still a bit cautious about new things. So far, he isn't trusting other dogs very much and might be best as the only pet. He is a good dog who just need some work on trust and fear issues. Slow introductions will help him get over his fear and nervousness of new people. Once he gets to know and trust you, he doesn't hold back on the kisses or hugs. He is very affectionate and loves HIS people. You will hear warning barks when he feels someone out there might threaten his owner. Bruiser is smart, quick to learn, and energetic. He loves to play ball...and hug and play tug of war with his rope and hug some more. When he plays, he sometimes gets all wound up and just runs around and around. Bruiser really needs a big fenced yard where he can run and play with his special person. He doesn't chew his people's things...just his toys. He is strong on a leash but is learning and he absolutely loves car rides. Bruiser may be best with adults and older children since he is very energetic and strong. With training, he might even be a good agility candidate. If you think Bruiser would fit into your life, please go to www.elkhoundrescue.org/adopt.htm and fill out the application to adopt him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bruiser, a Youngstown Norwegian Elkhound/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norwegian Elkhound/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Youngstown, or seeking a Norwegian Elkhound/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Youngstown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Youngstown already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Youngstown breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Norwegian Elkhound/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Norwegian Elkhound/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Youngstown paves the way for another one to be saved.
