About Elliot

Elliot loves ear rubs and butt scratches. He is well trained but will test you to see what he can get away with. He knows hundreds of commands including: sit, down, stand, wait, backup, go to your room, get out of the kitchen, are you hungry?(or any word having to do with food), hurry up (to replace 'go potty'), don't pull, leave it, where's Patrick?, go find a toy... basically if you just talk to him like a person he'll probably understand you. Elliot is a very loyal dog, which means he doesn't normally like strangers. Don't worry though, he is as far from aggressive as possible unless protecting me from real danger. He can totally be won over with food; he lives for his stomach. He knows that he's not supposed to go into the kitchen, but he also knows if you're paying attention or not! He should never be left to free range the house. You'll be shocked what he can get into and what he considers 'edible' ie: tee-shirts, underwear, aluminum foil, plastic water bottles - he eats everything and never learns his lesson! Elliot has chased away a robber, cornered an enormous wild boar, been best friends with my 2 yr old neighbor, and kicked up dust on African trails through the bush. He has been my constant support through every struggle and he means the world to me.

He is allergic to everything so only feed him his own dog food. He will try to convince you that he can eat other things but they will make him sick!
