Elliot is the male dog of our dreams. He came into his foster home unaltered and never marked or peed in the house once. This is unheard of in the rescue world, in fact, I believe he is our very first. He is of course now neutered and still has never had an accident inside. I can’t even say that for my own male dogs. Elliot is crate trained and sleeps in a crate at night. He loves to lay in the sunshine when it’s nice and warm. His favorite activity is cuddling with his person and belly rubs. He loves belly rubs. He is completely potty trained to go outside but has used potty pads.
Elliot is good on the leash and loves to go for walks. He is good with other small dogs but does not play with them. However, he will snuggle up and sleep with them. We have pictures of him sleeping next to both kitties in his foster home. He loves kids and has been around them from ages 3-10. He likes to sit on their laps when they are on the floor but when they get loud he goes into his hiding place. Only calm children are recommended due to his small size. He can be shy around new people but he does let everyone pet him and hold him. He has a very loving nature.
Elliot can sit and lay down on command. He needs a very secure yard as he will find little holes in the fencing to escape. Elliot will not make a good apartment dog as he is a happy barker. He gets so excited that he likes to express his joy. He is just a great all around dog and we are looking for a special home for him because he is a very special boy.
Elliot is neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative and started on heartworm preventative. He has also had a blood panel and a dental in September. His adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in adopting Elliot please complete an application at
