Adoption Fee $350
Hi, I’m Elroy! I’m a 4 year old mixed breed pup. When I was a puppy, the shelter said I was a boxer mix. All I know is that I’m a black and tan, lanky 35lb boy with a hound bark and beautiful howl! I am on the look out for a patient family that wants a pup to adore and play with!
Shortly after entering my foster home, I was diagnosed with Lymes disease. Luckily the doctors took great care of me, and I am healthy and symptom free! I most likely will not need any further treatment; however, there’s a possibility I would need more rounds of antibiotics and/or pain meds if I ever show symptoms in the future. (Don’t worry my foster parents can answer your questions.)
I lived in a home as a family pup for most of my life, so I am house broken and do not need to be crated. Speaking of crates... I absolutely hate spending time crated. I will go into my crate and eat in my crate, but I should have my own safe room to use instead of being crated.
I have learned a lot in my foster home, but I need to continue growing my confidence. My foster parents can explain more about that. Basically, I do best with positive reinforcement and communication. I’m easy to work with because I am eager to please, very smart, and both toy and food motivated.
I welcome human interaction and do not have stranger danger. I don’t currently live with kids but have done well with kids thus far in life! I love my foster canine siblings, but I’m still learning how to “dog”. I don’t really understand how to play. Due to my anxiety, I sometimes can be defensive in certain situations, but I’m definitely improving. I would do well as an only dog or with the right doggy siblings. Doggy daycare is an option too! I do not live with cats, but I was very skeptical of the one cat I’ve ever met. I think I have to meet your cat before I make a decision about him/her.
My favorite activities include playing fetch with balls or kongs, hanging out with my humans, going for walks, being outside or howling with my canine foster siblings, and barking. I have a voice, and I love to use it! Don’t worry though, I know when my foster parents are working, and I make a decent office buddy. I honestly enjoy just being with you and doing whatever you want to. So what do you think... do you want a four legged best friend? Apply today to find out if I’m the one!
