|Any additional comments regarding temperament that haven’t been covered by the questions above?||Albert and Elliot are being fostered together and are littermates. They are enjoying the country life in their foster home and live in a house with 5 other dogs so are well socialized, but have not had other introductions to other dogs or animals. New owners should prioritize socialization as they have spent the large majority of their time in the county so city sights and smells will be new/unfamiliar but they adjust well with proper coaching. They are big rough-and-tumble wrestlers with each other, and although adopting littermates is generally not advised, these two are extremely bonded and very in sync with each other. If they are not adopted together the new home absolutely must have another dog who is of similar energy and play style. They must have an active owner and a yard.|
|Profile Information||Elliot is such a sweet boy! He can be slightly shyer than his brother and a little more independent. He needs an entertainment coordinator or will take on the role himself. He is a gentleman. He can be a noodle for belly rubs. While he loves to rough and tumble with his brother (who seems like his other half) he also has an off switch and will settle after play sessions. He has lived as part of a large group of dogs so he really needs the companionship of another dog who can play and keep up with him. He communicates well with other dogs. He is excellent offleash, loves water and splashing, finds things to chew and loves his toys. He sleeps in an xpen at night, and while we are away and for eating. He is not a barky dog but will alert bark. Elliot would do well with a home that will continue his training and socializing, and we recommend taking him through puppy classes to assist with this. He already knows sit, down, go to bed, outside and is well mannered for nail trims. He’s a really nice boy who would do well in a family with another dog (must have!), who is active (camping, hiking, long walks) or lives on an acreage as he is already used to this life but could adjust to the city too. He’s currently 50 pounds and still growing, he will be large size.
Elliot came into care with his littermates as surrenders from a recent Canadian Animal Task Force Spay/Neuter clinic. His adoption fee is $298. He is neutered, chipped, dewormed, and due had to restart his vaccinations so has his first vaccines and rabies.
