Elvis is a very loveable 3 year old Rat Terrier/Mix and is a very cuddly dog. He likes to sit next to you or on your lap, especially in the evening. He is very active first thing in the morning and is full of energy but when he calms down he likes to chew on his squeaky dog toys and especially loves to chew on hoofs. Elvis is crate trained at night, but would like to be in your bedroom so he can see you and will sleep through the night. He is also fine in his crate if you have to leave for errands. He is potty trained and pretty much has it down but you do need to watch him to make sure he goes when it is time for potty. He does not heal on the leash but is able to walk with you on his leash, best with a harness. He has been learning how to sit and lay down and doing very well so far. Elvis is very good with the other dogs but can also be the only dog to a family that has the time to continue his training and have the time to play with him to burn off his energy. We are not sure how he is with cats. He really loves to play outside but remember that he doesn’t want to be left outside all of the time, he wants to be inside with his family.
SECURE FENCING REQUIRED FOR ALL OF OUR RESCUED DOGS.

If you are considering adopting a dog through HALO Here are some helpful hints:
Bring pictures of your yard to show secure fencing. Most of our dogs require a 6 foot fenced yard. Yards must be cleared of any fox tail weeds.
We do adopt small dogs to apartments or condo and need to see pictures of the patio or balcony area. If you rent, please bring copy of your lease to show you can have pets and any size restrictions.
We do not adopt to homes with children under the age of five unless we know the history of the dog with young children. All Children MUST be present at adoption.
If you own a dog and are looking for a friend please bring your dog with you so they can be introduced.
