Vinnie is a happy go lucky young elkhound mix who was born on Superbowl Sunday 2011 (2/6/2011) to an Elkhound mother in a rescue program and a Traveling Salesman father. He is a lovable, energetic fellow who is great with other dogs and children, unknown but suspected to be fine with cats. He is housebroken and due to occasional digestive upsets might require a bit of extra care with his feeding. As a pup, he did have irritable bowls and overstimulation would cause his problems. Now Vinnie just wants to have his own family and would really love his own teenage boy or girl to play with. If you would love to give Vinnie the home he dreams of, please go to www.elkhoundrescue.org/adopt.htm and fill out an application to adopt.

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.
