  • Y’all: Just look how adorable @eli_foster_dog is!!!!
    This boy has been with an incredible foster for some time now. Under their incredible care, he’s come so far from the terrified, shut-down pup we first met at the shelter.
    This boy would love nothing more than to be a family’s beloved pet!
    He has those head tilts down and has a perfect white stripe down his face!
    This boy becomes your shadow once you earn his trust! And he LOVES playing with his sister foster dogs!!!
    Eli is hoping to find a forever home soon with a confident female dog and a loving, supportive family who will help him continue to come out of his shell! There’s not much more rewarding than that!

  • Other Dogs: VERY playful: lots of wrestling, toy tugging, and chasing. Note: he was not fond of male dogs before he was neutered. He is in foster care with female dogs only.
  • Easy to walk, maintains loose leash. Loves walks, but can be startled occasionally and needs to always wear a martingale collar.
  • Snuggle/lover rating: Is a-ok hanging out nearby, loves pets once he knows you.
  • Crate trained, housebroken, likes play time with other dogs and opportunities to chew on toys often.
  • Type of Learner: I want to please but would like to go slow
  • Energy Level: Active, it is important to meet my physical needs daily.
  • I can be shy and timid when meeting new people and prefer to take things slowly
  • Motivation: Will sometimes take treats. Praise motivated: wants to please.
  • Known Skills: Sit, Watch Me, Leave It, Wanna Go Outside? In your crate, “Wait” at a door to continue, Toy
  • Additional Info: Eli will do best in a home with a playful confident female dog to continue to help him learn about all of the wonderful things that come with living with people. Eli wants to be loved but needs to trust his human first, then will become their shadow. He loves to go to new places but can be afraid of crowds. Would love hiking, jogging, long walks.
