Colonel Lewis - in New England

Last update: February 2018


   Colonel was adopted from us 6 yrs ago and is coming back into rescue due to a changing family. He is healthy and happy and we think he may be a Norwegian Elkhound, maybe mixed with husky.”The Colonel” is fine with the kids in his family, he mostly ignores the baby. They don’t have cats but if he sees one outside he will bark and growl. Since he’s never been with one indoors we don’t know if he’d be safe with feline buddies in the home. Colonel Lewis has not lived with other dogs  since he was much younger but he gets along with dogs that are friends of the family. He will be a little reactive to dogs out on a walk and he is not automatically friends with every dogs he meets.


The Colonel is in good health; he has matching bald spots on his sides which the vet says is like “male pattern baldness” in humans but don’t tell the Colonel he is “old” because he doesn’t think so. He’s approximately 8 yrs old and he weighs about 75 lbs.


The Colonel really shines in his love for people. He loves to meet new people and he likes everyone but if it gets overwhelming in the house with a lot of people he will find a quiet place. He loves tug of war and fetch and loves to go on walks. Thunderstorms make him a little nervous.



Won’t you consider giving Colonel Lewis the retirement home he deserves?
