Elton and his two siblings were born in the fields in March 2022 and spent the first three months of their lives with very little contact with humans. This is why they were quite shy when they and their mother came to the shelter. Elton is the last of the three puppies still looking for adoption. He has spent the last months living with a foster family and has now learnt that humans can be nice. He loves to cuddle with his foster parents and frequently asks them to play with him. He has learnt to live in a house and go to the toilet outside, to take walks on a leash, and to ride in the car. Elton gets along very well with the other dogs in his family., both males and females. He is also used to sharing his space with the family’s cats – although always under supervision, of course.

When strangers visit his house, Elton is still frightened. He needs time to get used to them first but will then stay calmly in the same room with them in his dog bed.

Elton has grown up in a rural environment and is not used to traffic noises or crowds. We think he would be happy in a family who lives in a quiet area with good access to green spaces. He is a dog who really looks for connection with humans, he just needs someone patient who gives him a little time in the beginning to get over his fear.


Adoption costs for dogs  : ADULT 180€ / PUPPY 120€

* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.

** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
