From the moment Eli stepped off the van this boy was HAPPY! Drawn in by his sweet, gentle eyes.. we were so eager and excited to get to know him! Eli was saved from the side of the road.. emaciated, covered in mange and pretty ill. We took him as soon as we saw his weeping photo. He is now healthy, vibrant and ready to live his life!
Eli is a puppy brain in and adult dog body! A lot of what he is experiencing he seems to be experiencing it for the very first time! Usually dogs we get that are like this tend to be wary or nervous in some situations.. NOT ELI!!! He is so excited to see all of these new sights and meet all of these new people and doggies! Eli loves loves loves dogs and is learning how to handle his excitable energy around new friends.
Since Eli was found in such terrible condition we believe that he did not have the best nutrition and guidance growing up therefore he has a lot to learn about the "pet dog' world. Behaviors like sitting instead of jumping and walking on a loose leash are just a few of the fun things Eli is learning. He loves training and is thriving in his new program!
