Meet Elvis

Elvis is a 6 year old Pitbull who was brought into the shelter August 2017 as a stray from Berwick. Initially, staff believed he had an owner looking for him as he was neutered, well-behaved and knew a variety of commands but sadly, none came forward.

Elvis is a very serious and reserved pup, except when he gets a case of the zoomies and runs circles around staff! But he quickly comes to attention when treats are involved! Always willing to show off his talents for treats or affection, Elvis has a repertoire of tricks up his paw. “Sit”, “Down”, “Paw”, and “Roll over” are just a few of the many commands he knows! And as much as he loves showing off his tricks, he loves learning new ones too! Shelter staff have worked with him since his arrival to teach him “Stay”, “Mine”, “Wait” and “High Five”!

Besides being smart and trainable, Elvis acts as a greeter for any new pups to the shelter and is everyone’s best friend. He helps to settle new pups into the routine of the shelter and acts as a “pittie mood ring” for staff, emitting a sense of calm when things get a little crazy!

While Elvis is good with dogs and kids, he did display toy aggression and resource guarding on high value treats in the past. Staff has been working with Elvis on overcoming this issue, and has made noticeable progress, but feel it would be best if he was placed into a home with no children as he may find stuffed animals or other small toys too similar to “his toys.” We recommend, for the same reason, that if he is placed with another dog, that it be an older dog who doesn't play with toys or that toys not be given while together. Elvis has NOT shown food aggression at mealtime or aggression towards other animals. Adopters must be experienced large dog owners and prefer experience with the breed.

Elvis is vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. If interested in meeting this handsome boy, please contact Vicki at vicki@nokillarc.org
