CongRATulations to the Blackman family!
Elmo came from a shelter in East Texas when his time ran out, and is now safe in his Connecticut foster home. Elmo is a very skinny 9 pounds, and our vets think he is about 3 or 4 years old. Elmo is very shy at first, but warms up quickly. He loves his comfy crate and is already crate trained and working hard on his housetraining. He was probably a yard dog , but he has learned quickly that indoors is the place to be! When outdoors, though, he’ll need a fenced yard. He plays with toys like a puppy and with the young dogs in his foster home. Elmo is a type “B” rat terrier, which means he has short little legs. You don’t have to live on Sesame Street to love Elmo!
