Fenrir is a 12 year old Norwegian Elkhound who weighs 65 pounds. This very special boy is a retired emotional support dog for a veteran. Having fulfilled his duties for his human, he is now ready to just be a companion dog to someone. This handsome boy is described as “a sweet old guy with lots of love to give”.

Fenrir has been well-socialized with other dogs. Fenrir has lived with another dog and while he’d be happy to remain with his friend Loki, time is short for them to find adopters. Fenrir can be adopted out on his own to avoid being surrendered to a shelter.

Fenrir shows little to no interest in cats which leads us to believe he could share his home with one. When it comes to children, he does better with kids at least age 6 and older. Fenrir does not appreciate when someone gets in his face or if he’s pulled on (but who does?!).

If you’re looking for a dog who will let you know someone has arrived at your home, Fenrir can do that! He will also bark when it’s time to eat. Fenrir loves to eat so one must be mindful about how much he eats to keep him from gaining too much weight. Fenrir is accustomed to staying with his buddy at home when the humans leave. We’d hope he could find a home where he’d have friendly canine company if he is not adopted with Loki. We are told Fenrir does well staying home without any issue. He can manage quite a few hours between potty breaks.

Fenrir loves walks and does very well on leash. He can manage stairs at this time. Fenrir’s adopter should be willing and able to provide him with a thorough senior vet exam upon adoption. This will give the best picture of his overall health. Staying current with regular veterinary care is so important for all dogs, but is especially so with seniors. Fenrir is up to date on his vaccines.

This gorgeous boy needs an adoptive home very soon.

This is a courtesy post. Fenrir is not an Old Dog Haven dog. Old Dog Haven has not assessed this dog for medical issues and will not be responsible for medical care after adoption. We urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
