About Ed

Adoption Fee: $50
Norwegian Elkhound mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Ed found us in 2019. He was wandering our neighborhood very malnourished/neglected. We found out he was being tied up outside in the dirt and heat with a harness so tight it changed the color of his fur. He has scars on his face and paws. He became best friends with our lab. We named him Ed because his silly smile reminds us of the hyenas from the Lion King. We believe he is a Norwegian Elkhound mix. We give him Zinc supplements for a deficiency. He has been a wonderful dog the last 3 years. We've taken him to the beach, kayaking, camping, hiking, outdoor restaurants, He is so smart and can sit, come, stay, release, down, place, crate. He never has accidents or chews things. But he is territorial and has a loud bark when people come to the door. We greet visitors with him on a leash and then he is fine. We have worked hard with a trainer and collar to stop this and have made progress. But we just had a baby and found he is not good with young kids. Therefore, sadly we must rehome him quickly. He will thrive in a low key, structured home. He's low energy but always up for an adventure and just wants love. We will definitely miss him
