Hiking Partner Extraordinaire

Elon is such a good dog! He does really well in the car but he needs help getting in and out of the car. He just needs to build his confidence up. He is super sweet and affectionate. He’s a good walker but occasionally he gets excited and jumps. We passed by plenty of dogs and he was interested but didn’t bark.

Elon loves exploring the outdoors- he is a born bird watcher. He seems like a great adventure buddy for a dog-savvy adopter that’s willing to finish his training and socialization.

I think I am his main handler. He loves to watch birds, is always on the lookout for a good stick to carry during his walk, or will bring a stuffed animal with him for comfort when walking. He also loves walking with his roommate Tyson – they walk together at least once a day. Elon is a high-anxiety dog and sometimes will jump a lot, so he needs someone willing to work with his anxiety and help him focus on enjoying his walk. Going to Waller Mill and exploring the trail there is a weekly activity for him, and he loves it! Discovering new smells, running into the water, and climbing on top of picnic tables for a better view are all things he loves to do there. He is a sweet cuddly boy, and in between bouts of terrier zoomies he will be a couch potato. With an exercise outlet, he is very well-behaved. He knows sit, stand, and up (standing to beg on his hind legs) and we are working on down. He also loves playing frisbee.

Every dog that comes into our care is different. They have different experiences and backgrounds that help shape them. Elon when you first meet him can be very uncertain of you. When you are looking to add a new furry friend to your family, you might look for that instant connection with a pet, but remember every pet is different and sometimes it takes some patience to unlock their true personality. Once he trusts you he will start to show his goofy and eccentric personality.
