Eli (formerly Dodge)

"I brought Eli home today, and he is in fact a wonderful addition to our "pack." Gets along great with the dogs and even leaves the cat be. :)

"We will face the challenges of training and communicating with him being deaf in the coming weeks. Though he's already a joy and is picking up cues from other furry members of the family.

"I read about him Friday night and eagerly awaited till Tuesday to come up and meet him. I'm so happy he's HOME!!! The special needs animals capture my heart.

"Thanks for giving us both the opportunity to meet one another. I look forward to the rest of our lives together."
