***UPDATE: Something truly remarkable happened today! A dog who spent over two years homeless without a foster or an adopter, found a forever home! ELIO was adopted today and for the first time in over two years he will have a bed to lay his head on and a couch to watch tv on. Two incredible people saw ELIO’s story and immediately went to meet him. Well, the meeting couldn’t have gone any better, they clicked with ELIO & he clicked with them! And they already brought him home. Sometimes it’s true the best things in life are worth waiting for and we are so happy ELIO doesn’t have to wait any longer! Thank you to ELIO’s new family, to Theresa & Rebound Hounds for making this possible. Elio, Santa really was listening last Christmas and he brought you a forever home for the holidays. Happy Tails Elio!***
LOOKING FOR AN ADOPTER; FOSTER TO ADOPT ALSO OK! Adopting is an incredible experience! Open your heart and home to a shelter dog. The rescue will support you every step of the way …
Elio is a young dog, still very much a puppy at just under 2 yrs old. He is a patterdale terrier/pit mix with huge upright bunny ears. He has lots of energy and loves to run, jump and play. He enjoys being outdoors, or just hanging out inside chewing on a marrow bone. Elio LOVES going for walks and rides, going to the store and obedience class, and interacting with new people. He’s very friendly but a little too much dog for kids. Elio gets very excited easily and needs a calm person to keep him grounded
A quiet home with fairly active adults would be ideal for Elio. He is friendly with most other dogs his size, but no cats or other small animals. It would be awesome if his new home had a fenced yard where he could burn off some energy racing around in play. He needs one devoted human, or a couple, as devoted to Elio, as I believe he will be to them. His new guardian must be a fair leader, one who teaches rules, boundaries, limitations using positive methods only. (Elio does NOT respond well to aversive training methods.) A trainer local to the Binghamton area has offered free training and support to a local adopter. His rescue offers full support to adopters in other areas.
ELIO IS A SHELTER SURVIVOR … and he is now in boarding in upstate NY and desperately needs a home! In return you’ll get an incredible companion and a friend for life!
