Eliot - in Maine!

Latest update: May 2017



Little Eliot is a puppy mill survivor who was surrendered to us locally and he needs a new home with patience and love.   In spite of his tiny size of 11 lbs, Eliot has a ton of energy and would love another young dog to play with. He needs guidance in his play skills because he can be too much for an older or less active dog. In his former home he had to spend a lot of time alone because the older more passive dog did not love him.  Eliot was getting stressed so he was pulling out his hair on his legs and behind. Now that he is in a loving safe place he is starting to re-grow his hair and is settling down into a routine.


Eliot hasn’t had exposure to children. He is a good-natured dog and is now finally getting to live out his puppy childhood (he is about 8 months old now) so he chews and pees and uses his mouth to play – all puppy habits that a great trainer will help you with. He was used to going on puppy pads so we are working on getting him to see the outside world as his toilet, and to use his happy-go-lucky exuberance in all good ways!


Eliot is a good natured dog and he loves to snuggle. He is ripe for learning and just needs the right family to take him in!


If you have interest in meeting Eliot, 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 family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
