Elmer is living at MPR's mini-shelter. He isn't sure that he loves his kennel, so he tends to need some encouragement getting in. Once he is in his kennel he does a great job of keeping it neat and tidy. Elmer gets a gold star for being non-reactive to the other dogs that walk by.
Elmer is a BIG puppy! He is goofball, that is always happy and outgoing. He loves to play and get into everything. He needs supervised playtime and loves to play fetch. He is very gentle when playing with toys and easily gives up the toy for you to throw it. Elmer has a lot of energy and needs a human who wants to be active with him because after all, a tired dog is a happy dog.

Everyone is Elmers best friend! He has a great disposition with everyone.
Behavior with children:
Elmer hasn't met any kids yet. Due to his size and puppy tendencies, he would better with older kids or teenagers.

This boy is very eager to please! Elmer is food motivated and seems housebroken. We are working on kennel training him. He would be best in a home where he is kenneled because he's a little too interested in everything. He knows sit and is willing to learn more. Elmer's excitement for life has him on the move and it is hard to slow him down. We are working on leash manners with him. Elmer is a very strong boy, but with the right direction will be an amazing companion to a lucky family.
Elmer has gorgeous eyes that just warm up your heart.
