ELMER – A Happy Update

3/2/22 – Another happy update. Elmer came to our attention in early November, 2021. Melissa, who volunteers with a rescue we’ve often worked with, contacted us about this poor, sweet dog who had been kept 24/7 on a tie-out along with a very aggressive female dog. Melissa does outreach and had been making sure the dogs were fed because Elmer’s owner no longer lived in the house and the person living in the home fed them whenever she thought about it. One day the female got loose and attacked Elmer. The police were called because the female was loose and aggressive. Once caught, the police gave the female back to the home occupier and while the police were there the dogs were kept in crates but then when they left, the dogs were back on tie outs. Elmer would get tangled and unable to reach his food or shelter. We were contacted to cover Elmer’s medical needs.Elmer was surrendered and he was adopted by a family who first lost him in the country for a couple hours then they told the rescue that the father felt the house “smelled too much like dog”; Elmer was returned. Then he was adopted to a second family but the 40 year-old son played very rough with him and all agreed he should be returned. Since then Melissa had been fostering him and the Good News — he was recently adopted to a very loving couple. Here is his original photo and great photos with his new mom and dad. diana
