How do you do? Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Sir Elliott, but I will also answer to Elliott. I found myself in a very bad predicament while in Southern IN. I was mistakenly taken to a high kill shelter, even though I did have a family. Unfortunately, my family members were contacted, but they choose not to come for me. Their loss is Rover Rescue’s gain, as I am told that I am practically perfect. I am a refined 7 year old Rat Terrier. My 10 lb. physique makes me the ideal lapdog and I can out- love a competitor ten times my size. I own the title of Master Snuggler. It is my favorite activity above all. I will keep you company when you retire for the evening. I make the best foot warmer, as I like being under the covers. When I get too hot, I will make my exit, but will crawl back under once I have cooled off. For the most part, I am a man of little “words”. You could forget about my presence if it weren’t the jingle of my tags. But I will honor and protect your home from the dangers of mail carriers and garbage men with my mighty bark. I am learning that one bark will suffice. Outside, I am a man on a mission. I strut through the yard making sure that everything is as it should be. For being a gentleman of social position, I am pretty low maintenance. I am well-mannered with both cats and dogs. I know to do my unpleasant business outside and I am crate trained. Due to my noble behavior, my foster mom has little use for a crate for me. I do love to go for walks and will bounce and wiggle when I see the leash come out. I accompany my foster mom daily for a 3 mile jaunt. I enjoy my walks so thoroughly; I will attempt to take one unattended. Doors need to be monitored and shut quickly so I don’t become an escape artist. Due to my small size and door dashing abilities, I may not be a good candidate for a household with children under the age of 5. I was treated for heartworms back in February 2013 and can proudly proclaim that my August heartworm test came back negative. Yay! I am heartworm free! I do have a very mild heart murmur that was possibly caused by those nasty heartworms. However, the heart murmur has not affected my active lifestyle whatsoever. If you would like to add a canine of lofty character into your home, please call Teri at 630-897-7454.
