My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Elliot, the lovable explorer! This sweet boy is always up for checking out new places and has a knack for finding interesting spots. While he can be a bit unsure sometimes, a few treats and some encouragement are all he needs to face any challenge.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Elliot is a staff favorite for a bunch of reasons - heandamp;#39;s not just adorable, but heandamp;#39;s also a total water enthusiast. You can catch him happily splashing around in puddles, and his infectious joy is sure to bring a smile to anyoneandamp;#39;s face. Whatandamp;#39;s even more endearing is his charming little howl that escapes him when excitement takes over. Itandamp;#39;s the kind of sound that tugs at your heartstrings and makes you appreciate the simple, delightful moments of life.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Despite his outgoing nature and these charming quirks, Elliot does have a bit of a particular side. His boundless enthusiasm can sometimes overshadow his introverted tendencies. He is a homebody at heart and does best when he has time and space to decompress from the business of the world. He would do best in a home with an experienced dog owner who can hold him accountable and remind him of what he needs!andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;As part of our Patient Paws special, Elliotandamp;#39;s adoption fee will be waived.
