Elton is the sweetest boy who just wants to be loved. He has had a hard start to his life and can still be shy around people who approach him too quickly. Due to this, a home with either no, or older, children who can understand that he needs calm introductions and the ability to approach you at his own pace would be the best for him.

Elton adores our two dogs and would do well with another dog in the house who can be introduced slowly and help Elton know that he is in a safe place and to continue to build on his newfound trust of people and show him how to be the fun loving, goofy pup that he is.

Although still a little unsure of the leash and harness, once outside he walks like a dream and hasn't shown any reactivity whilst on leash towards dogs we have come across.
When he came to us a week ago, Elton was not house trained but already he is at the point where he uses the back yard 99% of the time.

Elton needs a home with a fenced backyard and someone who is home more often than not as he does have some separation anxiety. He loves affection, naps at your feet (or sharing a couch with you), a comfy bed, his two foster siblings and treats. Someone experienced with dogs who can continue building on his newfound trust of people and all the good habits he is learning would be best.
He is such a sweet and loving boy who will bring so much joy to the right family.

This fellow comes from a neglect situation in Smokey Lake. The Humane Society was involved and forced the removal of several dogs from the home. He was at risk of euthanasia, but we found a foster home for him
