ADOPTED ON 10-29-11 – The true joy in any rescue is watching the evolution of an abused, abandoned or neglected dog recover from their background and revel in the possibilities of their future. These dogs become characters, sages, staunch old souls and playful puppies, all capable of limitless love, unbridle joy and immense understanding. Occasionally during the process of rescuing these dogs you run across a specimen that is not only capable of processing all of the aforementioned qualities but actually does accomplish the transformation. The dog in reference is a big male sable German shepherd named ELI, a rescue from a high kill shelter in south Alabama. With a history of abuse and neglect ELI has adapted well to his new life, fully happy in the fact that he can be deep, mature, protective, loving one minute and a complete clown the next. ELI draws his unique character from the fact that he can be anything he chooses to be at any time while simultaneously being in total control and fully responsive to his handler. This character is what makes this guy great; he chooses to be a good dog!LOVES EVERYBODY, GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS, GREAT ON LEASH, LOVING / HAPPY / TRUE LOVE SPONGE / THINKS HE IS A LAP DOG, GENTLE, GREAT WITH KIDS, ADULTS AND OTHER DOGS, LEASE TRAINED, BASIC COMMANDS, BLACK AND TAN, SABLE, MALE NEUTERED, HEART WORM TREATED, FULLY VETTED
ELI thinks he is a 100 pound lap dog, lounging leisurely in your recliner with you while you attempt to breathe. He believes there is a place for everything and everything must be in place, gently placing one of every object in that place without chewing, only problem is that only he knows where that ” place resides. This dog has never met a stranger (dog or human ), fully expecting everyone to understand this given and behave appropriately. A gentle giant with a flair for the jovial side of life ELI loves kids and comes across as a combination of conan and red skelton. If you desire a wonderfully unique ball of fun that will also be your best friend and guardian, ELI will fit the bill beautifully.
Our dogs deserve all that a committed family can offer. Make no mistake about it, this is one spectacular dog. THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING RESCUE AS A MEANS OF WELCOMING YOUR NEXT FOUR-LEGGED FRIEND INTO YOUR LIFE!
