Update March 2019 - Elmer’s adoption was put on hold due to medical reasons. He had surgery on Dec 04, 2018. His left back joint was not functional by adhesion of femur head and joint, so the vet separated femur head to make a fake joint by himself and now he can run and walk like a normal dogs.
Original Story: Two months' old Elmer and his sibling were wandering on a busy street searching for food. A kind lady stopped her car and took a picture of the young puppies after feeding them. A plea for help was posted on line for them later on. Within a few days, Elmer and his brother were both hit by a car. Elmer’s brother was tragically killed in the car accident; Elmer survived, but fell into a gully after being hit by the car.
Knowing the danger faced by these young pups in the neighborhood, even though restrained by the tight situation to accommodate Elmer, the rescuer put Elmer under medical treatment and settled him in a foster home.
From the car accident, Elmer's left side femur head suffered a minor crack; but fortunate for him, after only a short period of healing, X-ray shows the joint repaired successfully by itself. Now Elmer’s mobility is not at all affected; he can move freely and walk and run just like any normal dog.
Elmer is a sweet young pup, very stable, yet cuddly and affectionate by nature. He is easy-going, loves being around people and is aimed to please; he loves belly rubs. He is a smart puppy and learned everything quickly. He has already mastered some basic commands and is potty trained. He is very well behaved around people, young kids, and is good with dogs and cats, either in public place or indoor. He enjoys the companion of dogs in his foster home a lot. His favorite pastime is hanging out with dogs in the park and his daily walks.
