Two weeks later we came home with this.
This is Elliot. Elliot was rescued from a bad situation. He was kept in a crate for almost his entire life. The crate was too small, and he couldn't walk when he was rescued because his muscles had atrophied.
Fortunately he is young, and with some PT and aqua-therapy he gained strength and some muscle. He still has trouble getting up the steps sometimes, and when he runs it looks like all four of his legs are going in different directions. Slippery floors are his nemesis. But he is so determined! Luckily his bad start didn't damage his spirit. He is guesstimated to be around eight months old and full of play.
|This red ball is his absolute favorite.|
He has certainly made life interesting. I have never had a dog this young. And it's been a long time since I've had a dog who wanted to play so much. He is hilarious and exhausting at the same time. Elliot has been quite the silly addition to our family.
|He sticks out his tongue when he sleeps.|
