Elmo is (we are told) a Doxie Bully mix with a touch of Schnauzer. We don't see the schnauzer in him but his short legs, long body and wide chest match the first two. He is only 31 lbs and looks larger than he is in photos. They also do not show how adorable he really is.
Elmo is a great boy, house trained, does well with the cat and dogs in his foster home, loves to run and play but also cuddle. He tends to bounce when running which is very entertaining to watch.
He has one real issue, he does not like strangers coming into a home. He was surrendered as he did bite a visitor who just walked into his prior home. This is being worked on and he seems to be fine given a few minutes to accept new person but must be contained (leash/crate/etc.) when someone new comes into a home. His foster has not experienced any aggression from him when handling and he is responsive to commands. For this reason a quieter home (not a lot of people coming and going) is the type of home he needs. Ideally you would have another dog for him to play with. He also needs a physically fenced in yard to safely run and play in.
If you are interested in meeting this adorable, goofy boy an application is required - https://www.cognitoforms.com/New2URescues/AdoptionApplication


An application must be filled out to meet any of our dogs, to apply go to
http://new2urescue.org/adoption/adoption-application/ so foster can contact you. We do not have a shelter, dogs are in foster homes.

All animals are kept in foster homes so there is no shelter for you to visit animal. Please go to https://new2urescue.org/adoption/adoption-application/ if you would like to meet the foster animal or learn more.

All our dogs have been spayed/neutered; treated for worms; heartworm tested (if age appropriate -7 mths or older); treated for fleas/ticks; microchip; and examined by veterinarian and given age appropriate vaccinations. We take every effort to ensure the health of the animal and you will receive a copy of all vet work performed.
