WEIGHT: 53 lbs
BREED Husky, Collie Mix
LOCATION: Englewood Cliffs, NJ
RESCUE DOG VILLAGE, RESCUE ME, ADOPT A PET & PETFINDER
ADOPTED ON 02-28-21 Meet Elan, an absolutely gorgeous one and a half year old, 53 pound Husky/Border Collie mix. Elan was rescued just in time from a kill shelter in TX. It is unclear why he was left there, and sadly, this happens very frequently. Too often a dog is dropped at a shelter because owners “just don’t have time” or “he doesn’t behave” or simply because a puppy is a novelty and when the dog grows up it becomes a nuisance. The casualty is a pup that was ripped from the only home he or she ever knew. Whatever the case may be, Elan was extremely lucky and is currently with a loving foster family while he awaits his forever home.
Elan is a very intelligent boy (this may be why he was named Elan) who loves to be with his people. He does very well with strangers and other dogs, getting excited at the idea of a potential new playmate. One of Elan’s favorite things is to go outside for a walk. He does not, however, like his leash much. When it pulls or is in front of his face he tends to bite it. This behavior could simply be from poor training when he was a puppy, and with a little attention, can be corrected quickly. Foster mom says she uses a tighter lead now when they are walking and he is doing very well. He walks beside her and matches her steps. He also stops when the walker asks him to. He is very smart and is learning quickly. Elan is very curious about his surroundings and loves to know what is occurring in the house. He also enjoys playing fetch in the backyard. Foster mom says they usually play with 2 balls so they do not have to take the ball away from him while he is learning to trust. But what Elan loves the most is getting belly rubs, and he knows to lie down to wait patiently for one. When they start though, he will keep on asking for more!
When choosing a new family member for your household it is important to research breeds. This will insure that your choice will be an informed one which will head off potential problems down the road. Huskies are a loyal, outgoing, and quite mischievous breed. If anyone knows anything about huskies they know that huskies are very vocal! They have been known to have whole “conversations “with their humans, and are very quick to “complain” as well! And Elan is no exception! The graceful, medium-sized Siberian Husky breed is quick and nimble-footed, powerful, but with a seemingly effortless gait. As born pack dogs, Siberians enjoy family life and get on well with other dogs. Their innate friendliness renders them indifferent watch dogs. This breed is also energetic and can’t resist chasing small animals, so a secure running area is a must.
The Border Collie is an affectionate, smart, and very energetic breed. They are born athletes, most commonly known as herding dogs. The almond eyes are the focus of an intelligent expression—an intense gaze, the Border’s famous “herding eye”, is a breed hallmark. On the move, Borders are among the canine kingdom’s most agile, balanced, and durable citizens. The intelligence, athleticism, and trainability of Borders have a perfect outlet in agility training. Having a job to perform, like agility—or herding or obedience work—is key to Border happiness. Amiable among friends, they may be reserved with strangers.
The combination of these breeds is a clear indication that Elan needs an energetic family willing to run and play, hike, and play catch. While Elan does not display the herding instinct, he will get a little hyper when he’s over-stimulated, so he requires an outlet for that energy. With proper exercise, however, Elan does very well behaviorally in his foster house. He is fully potty trained; he has never had an accident. He is not fond of his crate; he would rather be with his people; but will enter it to eat or sleep. Occasionally he will whine when he is in it, but will settle quickly. Elan likes to chew on newspapers, with the exception of a shoe or two that was left out, and has never touched anything that did not belong to him.
Elan is a wonderful boy, and would make a fantastic addition to a family willing to continue his training and to love him unconditionally. He would thrive in a home with someone who is knowledgeable with these particular breeds or has experience with larger, active breeds. A family with older children, perhaps 8 years old or older who can understand the needs of a larger dog would be ideal. A fenced yard would be great for Elan to burn off his energy, as well as very active family members. With love, structure and consistency, Elan would be an exceptional addition to an active family.
