Please welcome one of the most beautiful boys ever….
Elliot, or Eli as is known to his foster mum.
His first foster mom in Spain writes:
“Elliot came home very lost, at home the first few days he was very stressed. If the relationship with the other dogs in the house was stressful, it was clear that he did not know what he had to do, he did not smell them. We decided to give him some time, if he didn’t give up we weren’t going to have him having a hard time.
After a week everything was better, he began to follow the youngest puppy in the house and allowed us to touch him. We saw right away with a little time he would be a terrific dog. A short time later he laid down so you can stroke his belly and his friend Mitch was inseparable from him. The walks on the street were something else, we had to avoid the busiest hours, and the areas where there were a lot of people; this was the situation until the day he left, but at home and with other dogs he was a very happy dog, the rest wasn’t something important to us.
He was very good with children, he allowed them to sleep with him and ate from his hand. They could play close to him that he didn’t get nervous.”
His second foster mom writes:
“Elliot…he came home a bit by chance…
His foster mom, a friend of ours, was about to give birth and we offered to keep him with us for the time she needed to settle with the new baby.
Elliot had been in foster for a long time; he is a dog afraid of humans and noise…Our male dogs do not accept other males at home, but we had to try.
But Elliot is so friendly and respectful that our dogs accepted him immediately!
He cried in the car, on our way home. The next day…he was a different dog! He was confident, even with my husband! He was really comfortable with our pack, dogs and cats! He had never lived with cats and we were surprised by his delicacy and the respect he showed for them.
He quickly adapted to our day to day. His only difficulty was walking to crowded places, but in quiet spaces he was great on a leash.
When he had been with us for around a month, Project Galgo told us that they would take care of finding him a forever family…
I must confess that, despite the joy, it was a bit sad for us, because we had completely fallen in love with him. Unfortunately, we couldn’t adopt one more dog at that time, so we had to let him go.
Elliot has been one of the kindest, most affectionate and sweetest dogs we have welcomed… and more than 30 furry ones have already been in foster in our home.
I still think of him almost every day, I remember him with love and I hope his forever family will appear soon.
He absolutely deserves it. “
Yes he still struggles with busy places and people he doesn’t know, but the love he gives you when he trusts, is a love that will never end.
Needs to live with another confident dog at least and does love to play.
In foster in Hertfordshire.
