Elroy is a very photogenic 2 year-old who came to us as a stray from an overcrowded county dog shelter badly in need of a grooming. As you can see in some of his pics, his coat was badly matted and the only remedy was to shave him completely. Elroy was excellent for his grooming so it seems as if he may have been groomed before at some point in his past but it had definitely been awhile given the condition he was in when he arrived at the shelter. It was hard to tell what breed mix he might be since he was so shaggy but the groomer thought he was a Maltese/Terrier mix so we’re going with that. Elroy has gotten along well with the other dogs in his foster home but would probably be fine as the only dog in the home as he really loves attention from his human friends. He has had excellent crate manners in his foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. This little guy can’t wait to experience how wonderful a dog’s life can and should be with a new family who will make sure he is never neglected again. Elroy weighs about 12 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Elroy. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
