Hello, I'm Elijah!  I just finished my heartworm treatment and I am ready to play!  I love other dogs and always want to make friends.  Sometimes I'm a little too excited and vocal when I meet new friends, but I know they all secretly want to be my best friend.  I'll need someone to make sure I don't play too hard because I miss dogs' cues often and have trouble listening when I'm excited.  I really need to run around at the dog park every day if I don't live with other dogs who can tire me out.  When I'm inside, you might find me staring out the window at all the action I think I'm missing, or munching on one of many toys because I LOVE to chew.  Once I'm tired out, I am the biggest snugglebug (lapdog alert!), and I always want to make sure you know how much I love rubs.  And my crocodile, but mostly rubs.

Even though I seem ready for anything, I'm slower to warm up and developed a stronger bond with one of my foster parents than the other.  I'll need someone patient to help me know that wearing a sweater and trimming my nails won't hurt me.  Sometimes I get scared and snap when I feel afraid, or when I'm eating.  I can also be unsure meeting new people when they want to come into my home. I would do best in a home without small children. 
I'm kennel trained, I'm getting better at 'drop,' and tugging on my leash.  I also love to pounce on bushes and see what I scare up!  I'm generally a goofy sweetheart who loves life.  I'm highly treat motivated, and I would definitely benefit from obedience classes.  With a patient, loving home, I will be an absolute joy full of love to give!

*Elijah recently went through heartworm treatment* 

Here is a great article explaining what heartworm is and how it's treated: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. 

All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs).

Ruff Start Rescue is a foster based rescue. Animals are located in homes throughout Minnesota. We do not have a facility where animals are kept.
