Age is just number and Elmo is a shining example of that! This 11-year-old Boston Terrier is far from your typical senior!
Elmo loves to play fetch. It’s his absolute favorite thing in the world. He doesn’t need a fenced-in yard to partake in his beloved games of fetch – just some indoor and outdoor space and a willing human companion or two!
Elmo loves his people; so much so, in fact, that he has some separation anxiety. While it doesn’t manifest itself in destructive behavior, he does sometimes have accidents when left alone so for that reason, he wears a diaper.
Elmo experiences extreme anxiety around other dogs, so dog-free and in an ideally situated area where he does not regularly encounter other dogs.
Elmo can get overly excited to grab his toys back and continue his game of fetch that he occasionally nips a hand. His eyesight is relatively poor, which also accounts for the occasional nip. He means zero harm; he just gets excited and can’t always see where his mouth is headed!
Elmo is also a super smart dude. He knows sit, stay, no more, and freely gives kisses on command! If during a game of fetch he is told “no more,” he’ll plop down and just chew on his toys instead! He is friendly, sweet and an expert snuggler.
He does have intervertebral disc disease (IVDD) and takes glucosamine and chondroitin, and fish oil. Elmo is staying in his foster home.
