Meet Elmo

What an accomplished gentleman! Six-year-old Elmo is a delightful bundle of tiny cuteness and big personality. He loves to show off his tricks, and he has many of them. To date, we have discovered that he knows sit, down, roll over, beg/sit up, dance, and...bang, whereupon he falls over and plays dead. Who knows how much more this little ham knows? And how much more he is eager to learn?

Elmo came to us in the spring of 2017. His owners felt that they were unable to care for him and his brother (a bulldog mix), so they chose to surrender them to the Lycoming County SPCA. Elmo was scared and timid, but warmed up quickly and began to entertain our staff and volunteers with his antics. It wasn't long before Elmo was adopted, but unfortunately, he came back to us a year later this past spring. His new owners felt that he was too much responsibility.

In the shelter, Elmo is initially nervous but soon struts his stuff. It is a world of big dogs and that does not phase him one bit. He is not scared easily and he enjoys checking out his environment and new situations. He also loves tummy rubs, an endearing quality.

Elmo's favorite toys are balls, plush toys, squeaky toys, and using anything to play tug-of-war. He enjoys going for walks and needs a little more leash manners in terms of pulling. Sometimes he comes off as abrasive in his kennel, but once out on a leash or in a room, he is a happy little guy.

Elmo enjoys his life, his people, and his stuff. Accordingly, he does not appreciate other dogs or people coming too close to his food or person. He can be what we call a "resource guarder." He may nip or get tense if someone gets too close to his food or a new person comes up to his owners. Therefore, we recommend that his ideal home be one with adults or older children and perhaps no other dogs. It will depend on the dog. We believe that Elmo could be a bit of a bully.

Our dedicated staff and volunteers describe Elmo as "A determined little man," "very intelligent," and "a showman at heart." We love dear Elmo and are confident that his perfect forever family is out there. He cannot wait to meet you and snuggle on into your heart. He is ready and waiting for a meet and greet in Kennel 46.
