My name is Elton, and I’m a 2-year-old Bassett Hound Mix male, weighing 39 pounds.  I am already neutered, and my health is in tip-top shape!  Most of my time is spent playing outside, but I’m happy to report that I am great at going potty there instead of inside the garage or house.  My leash skills are a work in progress, though, since I’d rather run around in my backyard than go on walks.

I’m a loveable guy, and I am extremely loyal to my people.  I love chasing after my toys and playing with other doggie friends.  In fact, I became instant friends with my foster family’s English Bulldog and three Chihuahuas.  But even though I can be pretty high energy, I am also content to just lay next to you wherever you may be.  I do well on my own, too, and exhibit zero separation anxiety when you leave. 

My ideal household would be one with lots of love and stability.  I’d also prefer a family who has an active lifestyle.  I’d do great with other doggie siblings, and I love children, too.  Cats are a big maybe for me, though, since I’ve never been around them.  So, am I the guy for you or what?  If so, my adoption fee is $400 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here:  https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
