You can sometimes tell a lot about an animal (or person) by looking at their face. Elliot's face shows his happy and fun nature. Staff at the Humane Society of South Central Michigan say they have been smitten by this young pup's disposition.

Elliot is nearly 4-months-old. He is listed as a Setter/Heeler/Hound mix. Staff at HSSCM say this chunky pup is energetic and playful. After a good exercise, Elliot will slow down for tummy rubs and pets. He is described as extremely smart and intelligent and will need a family that can keep up with him.

Elliot came to HSSCM with his mom and littermates. His mom has since found her forever home and this sweet puppy is ready for his. Just like any other puppy, Elliot will need leash and house training.

He would best it into a home with older children (8 +) because he tends to favor his breed trait of nipping of ankles. A trait the has been highly sought after for rounding up cattle such as sheep. Elliot is an active young puppy and will need a family that will give him lots of exercise opportunities.

Elliot would likely do well in a home with another dog, especially a female. He has shown a high prey drive and would not be a good fit for a home with cats. He is also not a good fit for apartments. A physically fenced-in yard is recommended.
