• Animal ID#: A307137
  • Dog Name: Elmer
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 1 year
  • This handsome guy is all about people! He’s still puppy-like, so can be jumpy and mouthy, but he responds to correction like a champ! He really wants to please and is one very smart boy. He hates shelter life as he is so human driven. We suspect he would be OK with children, keeping in mind his puppy-like behavior. He is a tad nervous with other dogs right now, and seems to be most comfortable with gentle and dainty female dogs. He’s ready to start growing up with a loving family!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
