COURTESY POST for NEMA:
a 9-10 yr old neutered male who was grossly
overweight when he came into the NEMA
rescue. He is now at a healthy weight and
ready to find his forever home. Because of
his former problem with weight, he needs to
be fed two meals a day and kept to a healthy
diet. He is good with other dogs and with
children. Cats are unknown. He is
available through the Norwegian Elkhound
to visit their website and download the
adoption agreement or email
for more information.
Zen, short for Zendaya
in honor of the Disney channel star, is
young, lively, ready to dance and loves to
share time with people. Her age
is said to be under 2 yrs old and her energy
level would support that as well as her
excellent physical condition.
She is long and tall (probably part
shepherd) and photographs more like an
elkhound from the front than the back.
Her face shows her elkie charm and her body
and shape reflect her other genetic
contributions. Something of an escape
artist, she can leap a 4 foot x-pen if the
desire is there. It was when she
had to potty on her first overnight in PA,
so she has housebreaking instincts (if not
actual experience). She was a
stray in FL (probably not for long) and is
HW negative and up to date on shots.
She appears to be good with other dogs and
excited to meet them. No
experience with cats yet. This
very agile girl would be a terrific agility
candidate! Once she knows you,
she loves to be with you. She is
being fostered in NJ while she is looking
for a home, securely fenced, with people who
understand a young, active and intelligent
dog with a desire to run and have fun.

Dakota is a 6
yr old spayed female who was surrendered
after her family had twins. Dakota is a
petite girl who is frightened by new things
and sudden movements. She would be best as
an only dog in a quiet loving adult home.
Once she knows you, she seeks you out and
cuddles for protection. She is OK with
smaller dogs but can be afraid of larger
ones. She would love a fenced yard all her
own and people who are around and will be
patient with her. If you have the time and
love this girl is seeking, please

Don't forget to mention her name.
short, is a young neutered male who was
found as a stray in WV. He is a
handsome boy who may be about 2 years old.
He LOVES to run so needs to go to a home
with a large, securely fenced yard and
people who know just how clever an elkhound
can be if he wants to get out. He is
fairly new in rescue and has been in a
kennel run, which he keeps clean. He
has not interacted with other dogs since he
came to us but the person who helped him in
WV said he was good with his 5 dogs (Boston
Terrier, Pug, Terrier mix, Italian Greyhound
and a Greyhound). He isn't used
to a leash and is afraid when approached by
other dogs on lead. He has not
met cats. Ron is a vagabond at
heart and would love to have an active
person to call his own. If you
would like to see how Ron would fit into
your life, please

Bandit is a
young spayed female about 4 years old.
She came to us from the south where she was
surrendered to a shelter due to her owner
having a life-threatening accident.
Bandit was traumatized by the shelter
environment and came into rescue.
She is a shy girl who acts slightly
aggressive when scared. Once she knows that
you are not going to harm her, she is a
snuggle bug. She is not
good with other dogs, mostly reacting out of
fear. Someone who understands
and can help her fear aggression tendencies
is the person she needs. She
does well at the boarding kennel and feels
protected by the fenced runs which keep her
safe from other dogs. She loves
the people who care for her and doesn't take
long to trust. When meeting
Bandit, you need to let her come to you.
Bandit needs an adult home with no other
pets where she can enjoy her people.
If you are interested in providing her with
a nurturing environment and helping her
overcome her fears, please

Oh yes, forgot to mention that Bandit loves
to ride in a car!
- blind dog
Smokie is a sweet boy, maybe 8 yrs old,
who needs to go into just the right home
environment. Blind in one eye, he may see
shadows in the other. His sight impairment
appears to have been developing for a
while. For that reason, he needs a patient
family willing to learn or accustom to
dealing with this handicap because he will
need to get adjusted to a new environment.
A calm and gentle canine companion might be
good for him as well. If you are
looking for a special dog who needs you,

and mention his name.
