Elkie is a male elkhound, about 5-6 yrs old, who was left chained on a deck in OH when his owners lost their home. He was fed by neighbors who took pity on him and called a rescue group. They didn't have room for him but worked with JNMRF to get him neutered, up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and had several cysts removed. Elkie is a happy boy and wants to be the only pet in your life! He doesn't trust other dogs and isn't fond of cats. He will bark for attention and loves a nice grassy yard (fenced of course!) He's a huggy boy and is hoping to find his special companion so he can stay with them forever. If you think you need one special friend like Elkie (we don't know his real name), please go to www.elkhoundrescue.org/adopt.htm and fill out an application to adopt. He's hoping for a family all his own!

About John Nelsen Moosedog Rescue Fund - Northeast

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.
