Dog | Female | Age: 5 | Norwegian Elkhound | Spayed/Neutered

Myla is an energetic, loyal, and loving Norwegian Elkhound. She is a true Norwegian Elkhound and displays many elkhound behaviors. She loves to run, bark and snuggle up with her humans at the end of a long day. She is protective but also has a timid side.

Other Animals
She has lived with 2 other dogs her whole life, one currently the same size as her and one larger than her. She has, at times, growled at and nipped at the same sized dog’s legs when coming out of her kennel and other times of the day, she ignores him. For these reasons, she will likely do better as a single dog in her future home.

Medical History
Myla is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and consistently receive heartworm and flea and tick treatment each month.

Ideal Home
Myla needs a home where she will be an only dog with a human who is firm but also loves snuggles.

Physical Description
Myla is approximately 32 lbs. Her fur is a light brown to brown ombré. She is fluffy with pointy ears and a shorter snout.

Other Information
Myla has completed city dog training 1, 2, and 3. It will be extremely hard for our family to rehome Myla but it is something that needs to happen for her and our family. She deserves a family who loves her and gives her the only-dog life she deserves.
