If you’re looking for the perfect combination of an elder gentleman’s manners and the playfulness of a young lad, you’ve found it in Elmo. Quiet, quirky, and fun, Elmo is an adorable little guy who loves to play fetch with his toys and makes a great lap dog when it’s nap time!

This floppy-eared fellow sleeps soundly through the night and doesn’t even snore! Elmo is crate trained and housetrained, but would love someone who is able to check in on him during the day for a couple of potty breaks — he isn’t a “hold it all day” kind of dog. He’d adore an owner who works from home, a retiree, or a couple who works opposite shifts.

Though he LOVES people, Elmo experiences significant anxiety around other dogs. His forever home must be dog-free and remain as such. Elmo does great with older children who understand his Boston Terrier energy, but has not met any cats or young children, so we’d prefer he also go to a cat-free and toddler-free home.

Elmo would be happy to join you in any type of home – apartment, house, suburbs – and since he loves to play fetch, a fenced in yard would be great, but is not required. This very agile and extremely obedient pup would make a wonderful friend for someone who would enjoy throwing his toys for him — he even brings them back and places them conveniently on your lap! He knows how to sit, stay, drop it AND he gives kisses when you ask for them!
