Enquire about ADOPTED ELIOT

Spread the word

ELIOT is totally ready to find his forever home.  This is what his current foster family have to say about him:

ELIOT has a heart of pure gold. He is the softest goof ever and just loves everyone, greeting us with the same enthusiasm every time we come into the room even if we have been gone for only 2 minutes .

He learns very quickly what is his space, where he is allowed, and when . . . At our place dogs are allowed on the sofa when invited otherwise they have their big comfy beds on the floor.  ELIOT learnt that rule in only a day.

Very unusually for many rescues ELIOT is a “man’s dog”.  He loves men and big teenage boys in particular who give big hugs and if you let him he will climb on your lap for big hugs.  He likes them even better if there’s a rough and tumble in the offing.

This wonderful boy has so much love to give and is so incredibly loyal.  After only 2 days with us we let him off his lead on our daily forest runs as he so just wanted to run with our 2 dogs and he was as good as gold, just running with us as part of his pack.  (We have to acknowledge that all the groundwork had been done with his previous foster Mum for this to happen!)

He can be quite noisy in true hound fashion when he is excited or frustrated but you can call him with a hug or reassurance. He loves to play and will chase balls and soft toys in his haphazard manner which is hilarious to watch , and usually brings them back ! He walks well on the lead with only the occasional lunge.

ELIOT will love you to the moon and back if you give him the love, attention and exercise he needs.

We are looking for an adoptive family who can provide Eliot with the sort of life that would suit him best – one full of love, affection and action.  We are learning that these beautiful French breeds that are so maligned as “chasse dogs” make excellent loving pets.  A combination of exercise, brain games and cuddles and they are at their happiest.  They get on with other dogs, can be trained to be with cats (Eliot had one in his first foster home that he learned to live with – not best of chums but he lived with), and have wonderful temperaments.

ELIOT is currently fostered in Department 09 (Ariège) but will be available for adoption anywhere in France subject to a successful home check. If you would like to know more about ELIOT, have the opportunity to meet him either virtually or in reality, you can:
