History : Elton, along with his brothers Edu and Emi, were captured when they lived feral with their mother, at three months old. Until mid-May, the three lived freely in the bush with their mother, therefore, they had little contact with humans and were somewhat shy. Now a volunteer comes to the shelter from time to time to spend time with them and get them more and more accustomed to people.
Personality : Elton is now willing to let himself be touched, but he is not yet able to relax. He is the most curious and courageous of the three siblings, sometimes he approaches people cautiously and then lets himself be petted, but if you don’t give him enough time, he can growl to demand his safety distance. He is progressing every day in that sense, however, he still has to work a lot, before he can feel safe with people.
We’re looking for : Elton needs a family that will patiently work with him and give him the time he needs to adjust. It is fortunate that he is at an age where he can quickly overcome his fears. It is important that he arrives at his new home calmly and that the new family dedicates all the time in the world to him and patiently accustoms him to his new life. As a herding dog mix, Elton also needs exercise both mentally and physically, by the time he is an adult dog. We would be very happy if Elton could find as soon as possible a warm home with people who give him all the love, security and patience that he so much needs. We are sure that Elton will become a wonderful companion.
