- 13 years
Hi there! I'm Elliott and I am a very happy, sweet little guy. I'm about 13 years old, give or take. I am good with other calm dogs and love to be near people. I wasn’t a real snuggler when I first came to my foster family, but now I’m warming up to the idea. Most often, though, I’m a great company keeper! I like being near you, but like the independence of sleeping in my own bed. When I came to Young at Heart, I had been left outside the door of a shelter in a box in the freezing rain. I was matted and had a horrible mouth infection. I got all cleaned up and had my mouth taken care of, and now I'm ready for a new home! Overall, I’m a healthy guy, but I will need regular visits to the vet to monitor my kidney values. And, I am on a special, kidney-friendly food, which I LOVE! I would prefer a quieter home where I can spend my days napping, exploring a fenced in back yard or taking short walks around the block. I do need to go outside more frequently than a young dog would need to – but now that I’m on a consistent schedule, I rarely have accidents in the house. And, I’m good about wearing a belly band for times you might need to be away for a longer period of time. I'm such a great guy that I hope I can find a loving family to spend my golden years with - a family that will love me and spoil me the way I deserve!
