Elroy is a go-with-the-flow kind of guy. Do you want to go for a walk? Hey, he's with you. Would you rather go for a car ride? Sure. Do you need help with your yard work? He's glad to help, or just bask in the sun. And if you want to talk to him, he's happy to listen and then come to you for some loving. His slow-wagging tail will warm your heart.

This well-mannered senior boy is sharing his foster home with five other dogs, and he just hangs out with them. The cats in his foster home he either ignores - or naps with them. He's also really good with small children, greeting them and wandering off. He's also a wonderful leash walker and rides well in the car's front seat, gazing out the window, so happy to see cows.

At home, Elroy is content to be in the same room with his people, coming up for some loving with his slow tail wag. And then he's happy to go find his bed for long naps. He understands and obeys all commands, and he's a house-trained boy who will go in a crate, but doesn't need to. He's free to roam the house and does well when home alone.

Elroy's age has brought some teeth and vision problems, and he needs eye medication twice a day. He will do best in a quiet, slow-paced home where he can have short walks and long naps - and loving. Come meet him. He'll be your lovable and perfect roommate!
