Rescue is one of our ways of supporting this wonderful breed. Whether we need to "re-home" a dog, or work with the owner to help resolve issues, our goal is to have a dog who is everything it can be to the family who loves it.
A dog may be place in rescue for many reasons, rarely is it the dog's fault. Sometimes there just isn't anything the people can do, except try to find a good home for their friend and companion.
Some of the common excuses we have heard:
- The kid went to collage
- I got married,
- he/she hates dogs
- We're moving and can't take him/her
- The owner died of a heart attack
- We have a new baby
- don't have time for it
Consider the intensive lifestyle, expense, and time involved in raising and training a young puppy.
If you feel that an older dog... already housebroken with some training and needing continued love and attention as a special family member
is something you'd consider, then maybe adopting a Norwegian Elkhound is for you.
If you are interested in adopting or fostering a dog, please contact us at Rescue@neanc.net.
