Elliott Ash - Local Foster
Breeds: Terrier, Hound
FOSTERING IN NEW NEW ENGLAND
How cute is this guy?
Elliott and his doggie friend have the “most boring story” per their prior foster mom - she had rented a storage facility and the dogs were found hanging around there. She got a call to see if she could help and of course, she said yes.
They arrived to New England and attended an adoption event and Elliots buddy got adopted, but this boy still is waiting.
Elliott is a sweet, sensitive little snuggle bug, and boy is he a love!!. He doesn’t always understand personal space quite yet, and will smother you with his wiggle butt.
This boy loves his human foster siblings ages 7 and 9, he snuggles up with them every chance he gets. He is a homebody who does like leashed walks in the neighborhood, but he will get a bit skittish when big trucks go by or if he is within crowds of people.
Elliot is mostly house trained and is learning his basic commands. He’s very smart and will probably be the top of his class in puppy school.
He loves chew toys and peanut butter bones. He sleeps in his crate next to his foster mom’s bed and sleeps well the whole night through.
He’s a social guy and likes to meet new dogs. He is very submissive and prefers slow introductions. He’s a mama’s boy who will bond with anyone in the house, but does pick his favorites.
Elliot has been super popular, anyone who meets him just loves him. He truly is a great dog and will be the perfect addition to any family.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.l
