Elliot was given up because his family couldn't take him when they moved. He is a good boy but as far as we can tell, he can't see or he has very limited vision. He would do best in a home with no stairs (inside or outside), one level living and a fenced yard. He does not do leashed walks very well. Elliot does well in the big bed. He either sleeps on you or right up next to you but doesn't like to be disturbed! At home he likes to walk with his body up against your legs so he knows where you are and where he is going. He sometimes bumps into walls and goes into rooms and has a hard time getting out. He will come to you if you call him and keep calling him so he call follow your voice. You have to shake his dish and put it under his nose so he can find it. He likes other dogs but not cats. We prefer an all-adult home for Elliot with a small older dog buddy, fenced yard and no cats or children. He will need a lot of patience as he settles in to his new home. It's not easy being an old blind dog and having to make changes. Won't you consider adding Elliott to your family? ***Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Elliott.****
