Small 10-years-old chihuahua mix is looking for affection and loves belly rubs once he trusts you. Elliott has come a long way since he joined his foster family. He has made a lot of progress, but is still on the shy side. He needs access to a fenced yard where he can roam around since he is not yet trained for walks. He will wear a collar but is not a fan of the leash.
He has been a great gardening buddy! He enjoys hanging out, sniffing and chasing flies in the garden. A sure encouragement for your fruits and veggies to grow.
Although he's older, he doesn't act like it! He has tons of energy and follows his foster mom everywhere. He also likes his foster sister, who is a small and non-dominant, and is protective of both foster and foster sister. Having a female dog in the house is not necessary but will definitely assist in his expediting his adjustment in his new home.
Elliott is very curious and pretty funny once you know get to know him. When he sees a blanket he likes to rub his face all over it and burrow into it! He prefers women over men. He's cautious and will need to have time with kids especially boys. He loves his foster mom’s daughter too who is 9. Older kids might be a good alternative too.
Elliott sleeps in a crate and is easy at night. He likes to sleep in. Then he would go out and do his business in the yard. Better to have the door open during the day so he can go when he needs to. Occasionally he has accidents if the door is not open. He doesn’t have the reflex to warn when he needs to go.
He is still waiting for his forever family.
Elliot is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Please fill out an application and a volunteer will be in touch soon.
