Eli's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Eli's Story...
Hi, my name is Eli. I am a older Shepard/Hound mix breed gentleman of approximately 10-12 years. It is funny, I have heard people call me a senior. But, I don't think of myself as a senior. Sure, I love to take lots of naps and relax in my crate, but I also love to play with the new toys my foster family has given me. I like pushing the ball around on the floor with my nose, but my favorite is the stuffed bear. My stuffed bear is like a silent pal. I like to play with it and I even take it with me to eat.. the bear likes to watch me eat. But, if for some reason I think you need to smile, I will bring it to you and hold it up to your hand so you can enjoy the happiness it give me too, so long as you make sure to give it back as the bear needs to nap with me too.

Like I said, I love to take naps, but because I am social, I need for my crate to be in my owner's room. It gives me comfort to know you are sleeping close by and if you need to leave during the day, that is ok with me, at least I know that you will be back soon. If you leave the TV on for me while you are gone, I can catch up on my afternoon stories and news... keeping up to date is important.

One of the great things about my foster family is the food. See, I like to eat. No, I mean really eat. They tell me that I was too thin at 50 lbs and need to gain some weight. So, whenever I come from outside, I like to come to the kitchen and get a great big drink of water and eat a good meal. I get to do this a few times a day. After I eat, I like to go lay down on the blanket in the living room and watch tv with the family.

I have also heard that I was heart worm positive. But, do not worry, I have undergone treatment for the heartworms and I did very well. I am supposed to go back for a checkup, but, if I know me like I think I do, they are all gone now. After I underwent the heartworm treatment, I got neutered. While I was not pleased with that at all, I understood it was for my continued well being. I have now healed from that experience and am getting along just great.

I am better with larger dogs than very tiny ones, and I am not a fan of cats. I like to sniff them, they like to run, and I like to chase them. I haven't caught one yet and my foster parents say that it would be best for me to keep my paws to myself when it comes to cats.

When I was neutered, I weighed about 60 pounds, my foster parents and the vet said that they would like me to continue gaining weight, probably another 10 pounds. I'm good with that because it means more food :)

Anyway, if my story touches you the way that it touched my foster family, maybe you will consider meeting me. While I love my foster parents and have grown a little attached to them and them to me, I know my forever family is looking for a best pal.. I'll even bring my bear to break the ice :) You can fill out an application for me here: I am located in Madison, AL but I am available for adoption in your area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Homewood 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 Homewood 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Homewood paves the way for another one to be saved.
