The following dogs are listed as a courtesy and have not been evaluated by a member of NECPV.

The two Norwegian Elkhounds are approximately 11 y.o. and 5 y.o. (turning 6 in the summer). The older one, Luke (left picture), is very docile and loves tummy rubs. The younger one, Bruce Wayne (right picture), is a little more active, but is out of his puppy phase. Both dogs are good with other dogs (if introduced slowly), and have no issues with cats. They're both housebroken and know basic commands (sit, stay, big speak, little speak, and out). They both know that they're not allowed on the carpeted areas.

Kane is around 6 years old. He came into us Heartworm positive, now with his treatment over he is negative. He is neutered, and has been given all of his vaccines, and is even already microchipped. He needs to be an only animal, which is why we are having a hard time adopting him out, and being an animal control facility with open intake unfortunately he may be at risk soon. He was adopted out to a family who came in for 2 months straight with their dog, and he did fine until he was introduced to other dogs. He began having some territory issues with the dog he lived with after this, and was brought back. He never fought with the dog, just slight growling. His only other behavior issues is that he climbs fences so he would either need someone who was going to not leave him out in a chain link fence for a long period of time, or a tall wooden privacy fence. He is a great dog, and listens well. He walks right near you, and if you stop while walking he follows suit and sits next to you until you're ready to walk again. He loves going on runs, and adores playing with tennis balls. He's very smart, and would do awesome with training. He loves to cuddle, and is fine with being brushed. He's a big people person, and would also make a great protective dog if needed. He's an overall good dog, who just needs to be by himself. He just needs a chance honestly.
