Elliot is a 4 year old male bully mix that weighs around 60lbs of solid muscle bum. One of our favorite things about him is his ears that always look like they’re are being windblown 💨
Despite being 4, he’s still a puppy at heart and lacks some impulse control when he gets over threshold. He’s definitely a higher energy guy, and needs a good amount of daily physical and mental stimulation. A couch potato he is not! He’s a bit shy at first meeting new humans, but warms up quite quickly. Treats help make new introductions easier, and especially if it’s done in a quiet environment. We haven’t tested him with small children, but think due to his random bursts of parkour style zoomies, he should be with older children, if any.
New dogs get him very excited. Out on walks, he can release velociraptor style battle cries and cow in way too hot. If he meets in a calm environment, and has relaxed and patient parallel walks, he does great! He is being fostered with our trainer and can be out with dogs from 4lbs to 120lbs with no issue. We feel he could do great in a home with another calm, confident dog that balances his unstable energy. Cats are a no go.
He is crate trained, house broken and working on his leash manners. He has worked thru his separation anxiety, but moving into a new home might being it out again for a short while as he decompresses.
We are looking for a breed experienced family that will have the time and patience to keep training a part of his everyday life. He is not a downtown dog, and needs to live in a quieter area to help him succeed.
As with all our dogs, he is neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. If you think he’s the guy for you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an application under the Foster/Adopt tab.🐾❤️
