When most people hear the words "Pit Bull", the first thing they think of is often "vicious" or "aggressive" — that's because they've never met Elmer.

Elmer is a Spuds Mackenzie look alike, and is a 2-year-old Pit Bull who had a rough start in life, however, since he's been at the Animal Welfare Society things have gotten a lot better.

He is an active dog who hasn't had much training, but would be great in a home where he can be part of the family. He gets along great with people — so much for that Pit Bull stigma — but may not always see eye-to-eye with cats or some other dogs. One of Elmer's favorite things to do is cuddle, and he would love to do that in his new forever home.

Now let's meet Elmer:

For more information on Elmer, and all the other adoptable Dogs and Cats, call the Animal Welfare Society at (860) 354-1350 or visit them on Dodd Road in New Milford.
