Eli - HOLD!

Most recent update: August 2020
Eli is approximately one year old and just the sweetest. We think he may be mixed with lab but Eli has some coloring that looks like catahoula or cattle dog. He is great with other dogs and very sweet with humans. Prior to coming to us, we didn't have much information about children or cats but since arriving into a foster home that has both, we have learned that he did well! Eli walks great on a leash.
Eli walks with a little bit of a limp due to an old injury and his vet said nothing can be done for it because it has healed that way. It doesn't slow him down at all. Eli weighs approx. 45lbs.
Considering what he's been through, Eli is a pretty resilient pup. He was found in a rural county by our southern rescue partners who were there to trap a different dog!
Eli arrived to Maine and he was very outgoing with all dogs and humans. He acted like he had been here forever. He is curious and silly and loves to play ball. Eli likes other dogs and would be happy as a little brother or we think he’d be OK on his own too. He took to the children in his foster home easily and they had a lot of fun (all are school age and above). When introduced to the cats he was curious at first; when one ran he gave chase but when the cat disappeared downstairs he lost interest. As he settles in more, Eli has had more trouble with being crated. He doesn't want to be alone and will be destructive. We are trying some training tips to help him but we think he will need a pretty special home that can continue his training and help him realize being contained is for his own safety!
If you have interest in meeting Eli or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
