Sometimes when our volunteers check on a chained dog, a fence is not an option or the family realizes that a fence wasn't the right solution for their Fido; so they surrender them to Fences For Fido for re-homing.
Fences For Fido is not a shelter or a rescue group, so we cannot take in dogs unless their family meets our fence build qualifications and the situation is dire (health, eviction, low standard of care). We then look for shelter/rescue group placement, foster homes, or adopters for these wonderful dogs who deserve to know the happiness of being an indoor dog and a real part of a family.
Elby's looking for a new family and he is so ready. He's a medium sized pittie mix, about 50 pounds. He's about 5 years old, he's smart as a whip and just loves (and wants to kiss) everybody. He has no experience with small children and cats so that would be new territory. He's a boy who's eager to please, and he's motivated by treats and praise (who isn't, right?). He neutered and our FFF volunteers have given him several baths and walks and play times, and he's such a good boy. Foster, foster to adopt, or just plain adopt, all are options.
