MEET ELMO…and this Elmo may not be red with an orange nose but if he could talk:  “Me, Elmo, say I’m 3 yrs old, 18 lbs, white with spots me can’t tell what color because I’m all shaved down.  You tell me what kind of dog I am, I think me a Lhasa and Bichon because me have black eyeliner around my eyes my mom says.  But me a big mess when I came from the SEAACA shelter 

Now me all clean and shaven but my hair is growing back and I must say me pretty cute.  My foster mom says I’m the sweetest, kissyface, little monster she has ever had.  Love to drive on top of you in the car, she call me a velcro dog, I don’t know what that is, velcro? I walk real close to you so me protect you!  Me do my business outside like supposed to but maybe not at your house?  Me want a family, with a house and ELMO!!!  Me also want another four legged furkid for me to play with, yes!!  Me do not like being alone and I can be naughty and get into mischief. That’s why I need a buddy around my age to keep me company and out of trouble!!  But I have gotten really comfy here and me protect my foster mom BIG time.  Sometimes too much.  Me need training BIG time.  Me want to learn BIG time.  

Elmo likes to take over, but he is indeed a very busy, protective guy. He’s a good eater, loves to play with toys and would probably be good with older kids (over 12yrs) to play with.  He is very protective of his home and family, and obedience and training must be in his future. He doesn’t like to be alone, but he doesn’t bark much.  As he has gotten more comfortable, he has become a little more vocal, so he needs to not be the boss of you but the other way around! Are you up for that?  He won’t last long…but we want him to have the ideal home so please read his profile before submitting an application!!  Elmo says….”See you soon!”
