NAME: Elle King
AGE/GENDER: Young (born 11/24/15), Female
BREED: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
TEMPERAMENT: Playful, cuddly, stubborn
WEIGHT: 25 lbs and growing
HOUSE TRAINING: Not yet! She is a baby so she'll need a consistent schedule with multiple opportunities daily to go outside while she works on it. Puppies should not be considered reliable in regard to housetraining until 6-12 months of age. They're a lot like toddlers, who require diapers!
CRATE TRAINING: Good, she's young and trainable!
OTHER DOGS: Good! She will need continued socialization, like all puppies! Elle has been fostered in a home with all sized dogs.
CATS: Good! Continued socialization will be important! Elle's current foster home has cats.
CHILDREN: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older
ADOPTION DONATION: $425
HEALTH: Elle has several manageable health conditions. She has an overbite that may require surgical correction when she gets older if her bottom adult canine teeth grow into the roof of her mouth. This is an expense that her adoptive family may have to consider in the future. She also has a very sensitive stomach that requires canned pumpkin with her meals in addition to a high quality limited ingredient diet. Because of skin issues, which may be food allergy related, she must be maintained on foods without chicken ingredients. She did have a heart murmur as a little puppy, but as she's gotten older and healthier, she has outgrown the murmur. Prior to adoption, puppies will be altered, microchipped, flea treated, and dewormed. Puppies are given vaccination boosters in our care; however, adoptive families will be responsible for the remaining vaccinations that puppies need. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with 30 days of free pet insurance provided by Shelter Care.
HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find her a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!
NOTES FROM NAME'S FOSTER HOME: Elle is a puppy so she's playful and has a lot of puppy energy! She is super cute and fun, but a lot of work. Her forever family should be committed to lots of training - obedience, housetraining, and socialization. This will ensure that Elle grows into a confident, well behaved adult! Puppies' personalities are dependent on their environment, and the structure and training they are given, in addition to socialization. Their personalities continue to grow and be shaped by their new adoptive families. Puppy daycare and socialization classes or puppy kindergarten are highly recommended for their personal development. She will more than reward you for all your hard work with lots of love, loyalty, and laughs.
All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.
Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email email@example.com and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet!

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
