Sanctuary Visit Required

Elwood is a bright-eyed Lab/hound mix who is full of energy and just raring to conquer the world. Born in 2012, Elwood came to Best Friends from a humane society in Wisconsin. As you might imagine, the hound in Elwood has blessed him with an awesome nose and he loves to play "find it," while the Labrador in Elwood has provided him with a brain that's eager to learn. In fact, training is one of Elwood's favorite activities. He's already learned commands for sit, down, shake, place, wait and hand targeting! He's an amazing dog. Since Elwood was a pup, he has suffered from noise and storm phobias. This has decreased over time, but has not been eliminated. He also has PTSD from an unfortunate accident that happened at the humane society he was at previously. But when Elwood sees a familiar face, his tail begins to wag uncontrollably and his whole body fills with excitement. He just has to let people know he's happy! He also loves playing with other dogs has lived with a variety of sizes and breeds. Elwood's forever home will need a secure back yard, as his phobias have driven him to jump short fences and open latches in the past. He would do best with a dog savvy, patient person. If you can offer this guy the love and guidance he needs, he'll quickly become your biggest admirer. Will you give Elwood the forever home he's always wanted?

Elwood has a generous sponsor who has offered to pay his adoption fee.
