ELFIN IS A SPECIAL LITTLE MAN AND NEEDS SPECIAL PAWRENTS AS DETILED IN HIS WRITE UP.

FULL SUPPORT OF OUR BEHAVIOURIST WILL BE GIVEN AT EVER STEP OF THE WAY FOR THE RIGHT FAMILY

Poor Elfin is only a baby at one and a half years old is the product of everything that is wrong in todays “I want it now” society”. Bought from abroad by well meaning people who probably didn’t know that he had been snatched from his mum at a young age. Transported for many many hours into what should have been loving pawrents hands. Unfortunately for Elfin these pawrents must have thought that the old ways that some people trained dogs was the way to go. So, when poor Elfin had a potty accident in the house someone must have told them that the way to stop him was to rub his face in it and when he did something they didn’t like then he was handled roughly which has now made him hand shy. Of course, as most of us know this is not the way to train a fur baby and has only made Elfin a very scared and unsure man.

Since being in a loving and experienced foster home Elfin has learnt that not all people are bad and if he tries to open his heart to trust he will never be let down again. He has come on in leaps and bounds by providing him with a routine that makes him feel safe. He is fearful of making mistakes and will hold his wee’s and poop’s for as long as he can… this could be a day or two. He is getting there though and is 90% on his way

Elfin in the home is very quiet and does his best to try and go unnoticed and is not vocal or destructive. He will need slow introductions to new people and situations in a calm and positive manner. It will be a slow process and will need to be done in small steps in his own time. It is for him to decide when he wants to meet people not the other way around. Guidance and help will be given to the adopter over this.

The big wide world is a scary place for or little Elfin and he will need to feel secure and balanced inside the home before even attempting to take him on walks. Walking in the big wide world a big step for him and we need to make sure that when he is ready that it will be a positive experience for him.

Elfin now needs someone who will put him first and help him to trust and love as he so desperately wants to. He has been let down before and we will all be there to support him so he is never let down again. He needs pawrents to love him and be respectful of his current outlook on life. He needs someone (with guidance from us) who is committed to helping this little man learn to trust. This is a long process, we do not want him bouncing through well-meaning homes, as this will add to his insecurities.

Elfin needs a quiet home with no children to give him time and space to decompress. The person or family taking him on will not regret helping this little man come out of his shell, it is highly rewarding to know that you have loved and nurtured a dog back to a balanced energy. All of this will take time, he is already on his way to recovery but a loving hand and heart is very much needed. His family need to understand that this is to be on his terms and he will not want to be smothered. He will most certainly want time alone too and this will need to be respected. His new pawrents will have the most wonderful bond with this little man when things are done correctly and slowly on his terms. He is desperately looking to trust his human and calm leadership is what he is looking for. He could live with another calm non dominant dog.
