A cheerful, affectionate and gentle boy, full of enthusiasm, Eli will win you over. This one year old, neutered black male Labrador Retriever weighs seventy-five pounds. Picked up as stray, Eli ran in the road in front of the Palo Alto animal shelter.
“Fortunately, an Animal Control officer found him and brought him to safety in the shelter. The staff quickly recognized that Eli was a sweet young dog that was completely untrained. Dogs like Eli fare poorly in shelters, as volunteers are not comfortable with the large, un-trained dogs, so they get little-to-no exercise or attention. The officer who found Eli did his best to get him out for walks, but his job keeps him very busy, so Eli spent most of his time in his kennel. The shelter vet neutered Eli and performed corrective surgery on his eyes, which are healing nicely.”
He gets along with other dogs, but is unknown with cats.
Eli jumps with excitement, so any children in the family should be 10 or older.
Eli loves people and learns quickly, responding to confident positive reinforcement. Once he has received the proper education, and with a lot of exercise and good nutrition, Eli will be a fabulous dog! Eli is up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped.
