Elkie'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.

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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elkie, a Parsippany Norwegian Elkhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norwegian Elkhound for sale in Parsippany, or seeking a Norwegian Elkhound dog from a breeder in Parsippany.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Parsippany 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 Parsippany 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 breeders who help with Norwegian Elkhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Parsippany paves the way for another one to be saved.
