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.

About John Nelsen Moosedog Rescue Fund-midwest

About Our Rescue Group...

Established in August of 1996, we believe this to be the oldest Elkhound Rescue page on the Internet. It arose from the common desires of group of people with one common goal: to find caring, loving homes for Norwegian Elkhounds and Elkhound mixes, in both the United States and Canada. Eventually these desires and goal became the foundation of a foster based rescue organization called the John Nelsen Moosedog Rescue Fund. We are a 501c3 organization made up of all volunteers. Because of that, we may not be able to respond to you immediately.
