Big boy Elliot is just a big softie in need of a cuddle

Elliot is a big soft cuddly bear who is just waiting for a home where he can feel safe and loved.

He is one of seven puppies rescued from a town notorious for the cruelty they show street dogs.

The mixed breed puppies were born in the depth of winter and would not have survived but for the kindness of a local who tried to keep them fed and out of harm’s way.

Elliot is a lovely boy with a lot of love to give

Eventually she alerted a well known animal welfare volunteer to their plight in the hope of finding somewhere more safe for them.

She in turn contacted Animal Friends of Turkey to ask for our help but at that time our Sanctuary and foster care network were full to capacity.

A place was eventually found for them with a foster carer in Kas who managed to look after them for a few weeks before spaces eventually came free with us in AFOT.

Elliot has a lovely nature and a big heart

They have been with us now since June and they are now beginning to approach a year old.

Elliott is always pleased to see you in the morning and is ready with a wagging tail and an excited greeting.

He loves his cuddles and strokes and he gets on extremely well with the other dogs in care.

He loves nothing better than playing chase with the other dogs around the garden and is full of fun.

Elliot is a playful boy and good with other dogs

He will walk to lead and he will need a home where he can get good exercise. He will need work on his training and he good signs of being receptive to learning.
