Both were fixed and were great pets. Elkhounds are very difficult to locate for pets or even as rescues. I had forgotten that I had contacted the NEAA four years ago and found previous emails while cleaning up computer files.

WashingtonHaeKim1903 Capitol way SOlympia98501(714) 624-98832020-07-01 20:59:35NoneHi. My name is Hae Kim and I have recently started on researching what kind of dog would best suited for me and my boyfriend: energy level, grooming requirement, temperament and etc. _x000D_
My boyfriend’s mother is Norwegian descendant and we both have much fond attraction to Norwegian culture. _x000D_
From our research we have found that Norwegian elkhound would be a perfect breed for us. _x000D_
He is a hunter and we plan to move to Montana where the winter is long and plan to have active life and enjoy the outdoors. _x000D_
We love the fact that elkhound is a very versatile dog and highly intelligent and affectionate. _x000D_
We would like to start our process of finding our dog the right way by contacting you and get the right information. _x000D_
Thank you

(we moved from Ohio 14 years ago for NASA) In Ohio, we rescued our first Elkhound and have been in love since. He has since crossed the bridge, but have also fostered, help transfer and help with rescue groups here. However, we are torn......we don't get snow here. As much as much we would love an Elkhound, do you think it would be fair to the dog with the heat we have in the summer? When we moved down, we had one and she LOVVED to sit out out, literally, in the sun!

My mother shows Siberian Huskies and has been a breeder since 1972. I've owned Siberians most of my adult life and just lost our almost 16 year old a few months ago. We rescued a Elkhound puppy 2 years ago and fell in love with the breed. We go hiking, camping, etc. And she goes with us. I'm a NDGAA Groomer. I have twins that are 16 and love animals. Both National Honor students. One wants to be a vet. We also have 3 cats. I'm not interested in breeding but would like a quality and healthy dog. Willing to travel or ship. Please let me know if you have anything. Thanks

We had two amazing Elkhounds, Sammy and Sophie, that we got from Virginia Sawyer in Washington state in March of 1998 and April of 2001. They were both very special to our family, and it was extremely hard for us when they passed away in 2010 and 2012. Sammy and Sophie were not show dogs but members of our family. That's what we are looking for again.

PennsylvaniaKathleenKernan1361 Puggy LaneFountain Hill18015(610) 703-00182020-06-14 15:56:32We have one elderly Norwegian Elkhound, Jesse. He LOVES puppies and was part of a bonded pair. We lost Georgia two years ago and he has been alone since then except for visits from family dogs which he loves.We have had four Elkhounds over the last 30 years. Ultimately, we would like a pair. It has been our experience that two is the right number. We currently have one elderly Elkhound who, unfortunately, is reaching the end of his days. He LOVES puppies and we are thinking of getting at least one now both for him and for us. _x000D_
Our dogs' activities have suited their personalities. Teddy did agility. Josie did therapy dog. Georgia and Jesse did less formal hikes and outdoor activities. All had formal training. We have a large yard in a suburban neighborhood. Our child is grown with a family of her own. Jim is retired and I work from home._x000D_
We are more interested in puppies because we rescued Georgia and we just didn't get enough time with her--only two years. She was wonderful.

Hi guys, its me Kari Olson... I am looking for a healthy adult (5-8 yrs old) male elkhound who likes people, cats, other dogs, and small dogs. He needs to be good to bitches.. I want a sweet boy, and one preferably not afraid of thunder.... or marks inside. I can neuter if he is not neutered. I prefer a rehome from a breeder so i know the background of the dog. I have contacted some breeders and turned down dogs too young, one with a fear of men, and one with unknown disease history. I am retired, and have a huge fenced front yard for the dogs to play. Chilly, who i got last summer is lonesome since I lost my last male, Briskke, and this big yard just begs for running and playing to happen. I will travel.

I am 29 years old and live a very active life style. I'm currently a busy person, but willing and able to adjust my lifestyle to accommodate an Elkhound in my life. I currently live alone (maybe an Elkhound can help with that?) but work very close by. I'm hoping to have this Elkhound as a hiking buddy and fellow adventurer. I've had dogs growing up and am confident in my abilities to take care of one. I'm also doing all the research I can on Elkhounds, specifically, so that I know what I'm getting into. I think Elkhounds are beautiful dogs and really want one in my life.

Cat 2
I am 23 years old, female, working full-time at Thermo Fisher Scientific. We've had dogs all my life and raised them from puppyhood to old age, and I would like to get a puppy myself. We currently have two cats who live in a separate part of the house from the dog, and one rescue puppy, Harley, who is now about 1.5 years old. I live with my parents by choice to save up money; the cats and dog are their's, but I play an active role in their care and consider them as much a part of my life and my parents'._x000D_
I've always admired the Elkhound breed, and it's a dog I feel I'm really interested in. I've been considering a puppy for about a year and have started searching in earnest the last few months. My primary concern is to find a friend more than anything else.

North DakotaPaulMiller14608 74th St. NWZahl58856(701) 577-77782020-05-12 17:26:44None.We have five children, 3 girls (4, 9, 15) and 2 boys (1, 11). We are a married couple living on a 1906 family farm in North Dakota. We are the fifth generation on this farm (a wheat farm). Our gated yard area is about 17 acres, partly wooded and partly open fields. Companionship for our children is reason 1. We are also of Norwegian Heritage: Barstad, Haakon, Magnusson, Mehus are some of our Norwegian family names. My Wife had dogs in the past, and this farm, in the first through fourth generations, always had dogs. Our children would enjoy very much the companionship and protection offered by a Norwegian Elkhound. With five children, the animal would receive much attention and care from the entire family, and would have plenty of room to run and play. We live in a rural township, with about five families spread out over 36 square miles of farmland in NW Williams County, North Dakota.

WashingtonSimonBurke8239 NE 145TH STKIRKLAND98034(206) 478-81332020-05-08 06:16:16There are two bichon frise puppies in the home.Hello,_x000D_
My name is Simon and I live in the Seattle area. I'm soon to finish grad school and miss having a friend to look after and give me a sense of home. My previous dog was a border-collie mix I found in the woods so I never really got the experience of watching him grow from a puppy into the grouchy old man he was and while I enjoyed our 8 years it didn't feel like long enough. He passed away from acute kidney failure a few years ago and I said I wouldn't look towards getting another dog until I finished my grad degree so I could give him the proper life he deserved. Beyond that, my family used to raise/breed golden retrievers growing up so not having a dog in my life for this long hasn't been good for my mental health._x000D_
I'm honestly interested in the Norwegian Elkhound as a breed because of it's features. I love their masked faces and almond eyes and the spitzen tail and could easily see myself rubbing my head in their neck fluff whenever I need to feel a sense of home. They're a substantial size dog, but manageable, and from what I've seen get along very well with others and have a calm and friendly demeanor which is important as my current living situation has two bichon puppies in the home that would appreciate a friend._x000D_
Because of the Covid quarantine, we've been asked to work from home and in this time the lack of companionship over the last few months has been rough. I recently was informed it's very possible that we won't be returning to work until October and if i have to spend another 4 months in quarantine I would rather have someone there to enjoy it with and remind me that there's good in the world, but moreover I think I've been without a friend for too long and the timing is such that I'm in a prime position to amend that. They seem like loving dogs.

Sasha, a 10 year-old Elkhound and C3-Chirpio - a 5 year-old budgie.We have Sasha, a 10 year-old Norwegian Elkhound. She is our second Elkhound. We rescued her at 18 months from a family that had never had a dog before and was a bit overwhelmed by their Elkhound (she is a typical Elkhound and very sweet - we had no problems with her!) Mayhem was our first Elkhound. We adopted her from a shelter at 9 weeks of age and she lived with us until she passed away at 15. She was the best dog on the planet, walking herself by holding her own leash, carrying groceries, fetching beer from the refrigerator and clean diapers from the baby's room 3 floors up. Sasha is so very sweet, but she was not trainable as a pseudo service dog at 18 months. She's just a great companion and very cuddly. We also have a bird. We recently lost a nearly 12 year-old rabbit and my son is very sad. He would love to raise an Elkhound and train her like we trained Mayhem. He has done research on how to ensure that an older dog is OK with a puppy introduction. Also, Sasha has been a little depressed with the quarantine and we believe it would be good for her to have some interaction - eve. if with a puppy (she does quite well with puppies at the dog park - playing and then keeping to herself when her energy runs out).

We have been thinking about expanding our family and adding another family member to it - a dog - for quite a while already, and now that our youngest is 5 years old (able to care for a family pet and be gentle with animals), we feel it would be a great time to get a dog. Why have we picked exactly a Norwegian elkhound? We had this wonderful opportunity to meet one around 3 years ago and we absolutely fell in love with this breed - how calm, confident, yet loving, gentle and playful this dog was with our children, who he had met for the very first time. We would prefer a puppy from the Hobby Breeders - a loving and caring family, who has raised their Elkies and their pups for the right reasons at home, in a family setting.

We have researched numerous breeds of dogs and feel this breed is right for us. We are looking to find a dog as soon as possible. Thanks. We would be willing to drive to other states (probably 7 hour drive or less) but also would be find with having the puppy shipped. We would prefer 13 weeks or younger.

She lived till 17 years old the year I graduated from high school. The first dog I brought home was a Keeshound Recue. He had three homes before me and came with a lot of issues but in time we bonded. I fell in love with the breed. A friend of mine raised a Elkhound who I also fell in love with. They both remind me of my special dog I was raised with._x000D_

I've been doing lots of research on them and I believe they would be a good fit for my family. We have plenty of land for an Elkhound to exercise on and we're experienced dog owners. They are a beautiful dog and seem to have a temperament that we're used to. Also, I am half Norwegian so there is a cultural reason to.

MinnesotaCatherineLove2077 Commonwealth AveSt. Paul55108(248) 345-39512020-04-09 02:37:561 cat, 2 ferrets, 1 snakeI became interested in elkhounds when I worked at a doggy daycare. My favorite camper was an elkhound and he always greeted me with a goofy grin and a lot of love. I started learning about the breed after that and I fell in love with the solid temperament and versatility of the breed. I like that elkhounds are dogs that like to be around their people, and that seem to be up for trying something new. I'm hoping for a companion that will help me stay active and involved in the local dog community. And of course, they're beautiful dogs. _x000D_
I am a soon-to-be veterinarian looking for a companion and casual sport dog. I currently live in Minnesota but I have accepted a job in Valparaiso, IN and am in the process of signing a lease for a house with a large fenced in backyard (I'm moving in mid May). I have already been approved to own a dog at my new home. I have a background in canine behavior and training, primarily working with non-domestic canids and dog reactive dogs. One of my passions is dog training and behavior, and I'm looking forward to having a dog that I can test out various sports with. I have not had a dog I was able to try dog sports with before, so I'm hoping to try out a few and see what I (and my future dog) likes. My new home is near the Indiana Dunes National Park, so I'm hoping for a hiking and swimming buddy. I'm also going to have the opportunity to be able to bring my dog to work with me.

She crossed over the rainbow bridge 3/4/2020. She had asscending paralysis. I miss her more then words can say. I only had her 3 years. The 2 girls I had before were elkhound sisters that I bought in 2000. Nakita was 10 when she developed bladder cancer. Her sister, Tyfa, who was he runt of the litter, lived to be 16 years old. She started to have seizures after my husband died but somehow survived them all. She was my life. Why can't dogs live as long as we do? As I get older it gets harder to loose them. I still am having much trouble wrapping my head around my Esmae's death. I had a stroke 5 days after her death. I so need another dog. And would love to have another elkhound or two.

The first, my family had for 18 years from a breeder in PA. I only knew her for 6 years before she ran away at 18. It took a while to convince my mom to get another because she loved Lady so much. My little sister and I convinced her to get a puppy from the pet store in the mall (I know they are bad, but when you’re 10 years old they are amazing). We got Elka as a puppy and had her for 16 years. She did have to be put down because she had major intestinal issues and the doctor did not feel that she would make it through the surgery. My mom was done with dogs, until one of my older sister’s could not keep her dog because my nephews were allgeric to him. He was a ginormous lab (150 lb. dog) but he was a lover. He passed away about 4 years ago. Since then my mom has passed and it’s just me and my dad. He was diagnosed with stage IV cancer last year and having another companion, other than me, would be quite exciting and comforting to him.

Before the pandemic happened I was looking for a dog companion for up in Dutch Harbor. I was looking specifically for a dog that is versatile, adventurous, adaptable and willing to put up with strangers. I plan on exploring the island of Unalaska and was hoping to bring a dog companion along the way. Norwegian Elkhounds kept coming up as being a good adventure dog in cold climates. They are very adaptable as well. The only thing that is not recommended is taking them off leash. The plan is that I have to drive up from Missouri to Alaska. I was seeing if it is possible to get a dog in like a week or two. Get use to one another and then move.

Our Elkhound passed away 4 years ago at the age of 14.My wife and I are in our fifties. I personally have trained 3 dogs over my lifetime, a Malamute, a Chow/Lab mix, and our last dog Maddie (Australian Shepard/Elkhound mix). Our 10 year old rabbit was a 3 year old rescue when our dog was 10 years of age. His name is Fred._x000D_
When I got Maddie as a puppy, I purposely ignored and discouraged her from going after squirrels, rabbits, cats or any other small animals. This paid off when we adopted Fred the bunny. We didn’t know if she’d go after him and slowly introduced them over the course of a week._x000D_
Maddie pretty much ignored him and in short order it was Fred who would seek out Maddie when she laid down and Fred would lay against her._x000D_
I had friends that had two Australian Shepherds years before Maddie came into my life. I had always felt like that breed was too high strung for my taste, but when I took in Maddie years later, I could see the effect of the Norwegian Elkhound on her mix. That’s when I fell in love with Norwegians. _x000D_
Both my wife and I have talked about getting another Elkhound and feel that this is the right time._x000D_
We have a stable home on the Northside of Chicago in an area with small lawns, but several parks all within minutes of where we live. Walking a dog is one of my greatest pleasures in life. I enjoy it in all seasons, but especially in winter. All three past dogs were wild about snow and I look forward to long strolls in winter and endless snowballs thrown over and over. Two of our favorite things were our Elkhound’s enthusiasm for snow and how smart and eager she was to please. She was an extraordinarily obedient dog._x000D_
These are the reasons we would like to share our home once again with a Norwegian Elkound.

Most people would describe me as a bit of lone wolf. I'm a project manager in Santa Clara, so I am away for 11 to 12 hours a day Monday through Friday. However, I'll be working from home for at least the next couple of weeks due to the lock-downs. I've been considering a canine companion for a few months and this seems like an optimal time as I'll be home to acclimate a new animal. I'll also have time to set up my yard to be more suitable for a canine while I'm away._x000D_
My ideal companion is a medium to medium-large canine around 1 or 2 years old, though a bit younger is OK. Will be great in a home with a single adult occupant. Coat works well in Santa Cruz’s climate year round (cool-to-cold fall trough early spring, some warm summers). A tendency to be protective of the owner is OK. Good with other dogs as I may take in another in the future (probably not for a year or so). Not aggressive around others, especially children. I don’t have kids, but would not want it to attack a child on the streets. Athletic and great on hikes or camping. Travels well for weekend road trips. Not overly stressed by crowds (e.g. at a Spartan event)._x000D_

My wife grew up with a Malamute mix and has always wanted a dog. We think the companionship a dog would bring to our home is valuable for all of us. My two year old loves animals and participates in taking care of our cats. My four year old is a special needs kid with Koolen-de Vries Syndrome. This is a genetic disorder that results in developmental delay. We are hoping some animal companionship will help him develop socially. My ultimate hope is that through our experience owning and caring for a dog, our family will learn more about life, growth, caring for others, and about ourselves._x000D_
Why an Elkhound specifically? They're not too big, not too small, an Arctic breed (a must for my wife with her Malamute experience), their friendly and brave personality, their intelligence.

I came across Elkhounds due to their loyalty, intelligence, and their size. After my dog passed last year at the age of 15 (Spaniel/Setter Mix) I've wanted to get a dog that can enjoy the PNW outdoors with me again. I would love to have an Elkhound as a companion while hiking all year round, as well as take long boarding lakeside. They seem like a great fit for my personality and would make a great friend.

My dad grew up with Norwegian elkhounds and always talked about his favorite “Loki” and just before he passed away in 2006 I found a Norwegian Elkhound in Minnesota and named him Loki. He was the absolute best dog. I have only owned 3 dogs as an adult and Loki passed away 1/15/19 and I was thinking I would be ok with just the 2 little dogs but I miss having my big cuddly elkhound.

We love this breed and it fits in well with our family. We live near a national forest and wilderness area out in Eastern Oregon and love hiking. We understand Elkhounds' independent tendencies, but we also know they make fantastic family dogs. We know how intelligent they are and that training them is not always simple, but it is rewarding. We know how much hair there is to deal with when they blow out their coats. There is some winter weather and snow in our area, which our dogs always enjoyed. Our family consists of myself, my husband, and our two daughters (7 and 9).

Their temperament, coat, and size would make them an ideal interior Alaska breed. I live in a medium-sized cabin in Fairbanks along a fairly extensive trail system adjacent to the Tanana River. Elkhounds sound like good companion dogs for a variety of interior activities.

I have an 8-year-old lab and feel the time is right for him to have a full-time companion. He's a great guy, very well-socialized and has a great disposition.

MissouriDarlaPalmer425 Riverview RoadOzark65721(417) 633-67572020-01-21 16:04:35We currently live with 2 Chihuahuas; our Cardi died two years ago. Before getting the Chis, we had lived with and loved over the many years a Cattle Dog mixed breed, five Collies and a Terv (back in the late 80s and 1990s when I was showing and training dogs), two retired racing Greyhounds, and two Corgis (one Pem, one Cardi). All lived 10-15 years and 7 of them I raised from puppies.I've loved Elkhounds since I was a child (late 60s, early 70s); we had two Elkhounds who were absolutely marvelous dogs. Been a long time coming but I would like to live with one again. I am retired but my husband still works and I like having a larger dog around, mostly to take long walks with as we live out in the country. I want to raise a puppy (instead of adopting an adult), first because I *love* raising puppies, and second for the safety of the Chis as the larger dog can grow up with them around.

2 cats; one lived happily with our former Elkhound/GS mix
I loved the temperament of our dog. She was devoted to me, and loved to go all over--walks, errands in the car, to our cabin, . . . . I had 5 tickborne infections, and it took years to get a clean bill of health. Rousa (Finnish for Rose, her adopter's name for her). She'd guard a bathroom door if I was using it at the time. If I was showering, she was right next to the bathtub. All the dogs we've had were wonderful, but she came along just at the right time. She *was* a therapy dog for me in many forms._x000D_
I work from home as a software technical writer now, which was the case with Rousa. It gave us the opportunity to take breaks when we wanted to, for fun--there's a nice dog park just a couple of blocks away, and lots of friendly neighborhood dogs (who are generally well mannered and trained). My husband did take Rousa for training after we adopted her; I wasn't capable of that at the time. We'd like a dog that loves the snow too for play in winter. _x000D_
My husband grew up on 55 acres in WV with 6 siblings, next to a river. He had his own dog, who traveled all over the property with him where he was working at the time. They swam in the pond with siblings as well._x000D_
Rousa died ~ 2 years ago, and we still miss her terribly. But with all our pets, we feel the best way to honor their memory is to adopt another who needs a good, loving home.

We are 61, healthy, live in Maine on a lake and have a nice big property for a dog to share with us. Our past pup, Jake, LOVED that property and traveling with us. He loved the car rides. Up until now, we couldn't decide what and if we wanted another. We don't want just another dog, we want to love an elkhound! And a rehome pup is the answer to that. We would like an adult with history mostly known and a few years old. Maybe you can help us?

We live in Anchorage during the winter but the spring through fall we live at our cabin in Denali National Park. We have no other pets or kids and are looking for a family companion. _x000D_
What we are hoping for in an elkhound is a loyal friendly dog that is able to be as active as we are. We have done a lot of research on elkhounds and we feel that it is a great breed for our lifestyle and climate we live in.

VermontKristaMalaney65 Loven Lane Box 4North Ferrisburgh5473(802) 324-2761My dog was just diagnosed with diabetes and is now on insulin. My vet says I have 6-12 months left with him unfortunately. I am not looking for a puppy for now as I need to give my old boy all the attention, however I am starting to research the breed and breeders for when the time is right. I live in Vermont, would bring the dog to obedience school, but the dog would go to doggie daycare 4-days a week for socialization and play time while I work. Not sure if this breed will work with those expectations? Thank you.I have always liked the breed. They seem like they have pleasant temperaments and would make a good hiking and camping buddy. The size is perfect. I am partial to the spitz type dog.

New YorkMikeRepertorio17 Mildred Drive,Buffalo14225(716) 225-9697NoneI am a active young adult. I had a corgi who my ex fiance ended up keeping. Loosing that bond was very difficult and I am looking to add a new puppy to my life. After the corgi I am excited to be looking into a larger breed. Especially after being around my friends Golden's and pit bulls with no issue. I met an Elkhound at a puppy class and feel in love. Also, a fan of Norse mythology, the breeds heritage is another factor for me.
MarylandJenZeman52 Sharon StRising Sun21911(443) 309-8425None.Husband and I (no children) previously owned two Chow Chows (male and female), and a Beagle/Dachshund mix (him and the rest of the litter were left in a box on our doorstep). All lived long lives (12-15 years), with the female Chow passing a little over two years ago. We're finally ready to add a dog (or two) back into our lives. _x000D_
In doing research for the best breed for us, we're looking for good temperament, minimal barking, overall good health (the Chows had a lot of skin issues), and grooming that's not too exhausting (again, love my Chows, but the grooming IS exhausting). The Norwegian Elkhound appears perfect for us, but I am wanting to purchase a puppy (or maybe two) from a reputable breeder only.

WyomingEmilyCox2080 Road 25LaGrange82221(205) 807-1345Dog 1 Horse 1I have always wanted an Elkhound since I went to the Westminster Dog Show when I was 10 and fell in love with the breed. However, half my family is allergic to dogs so we've always had hypoallergenic dogs. So now, 15 years later, I live on my own and would love to add an elkhound to my life. I live on a ranch with plenty of room to run. Additionally, I have a small, 13-year-old dog that is my best friend, however, there are many coyotes that run around the ranch and it makes me nervous, so I can't let him out by himself. I think he'd love a "little, big sibling" that could ward off coyotes from coming near the house. Therefore, if I could rescue a young (1-3yr old) elkhound (preferably female), I'd not only get another best friend but a protector for my current dog.

Smokey and MacKenzie were simply family dogs but they had fabulous lives full of adventures, care and love. I live in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Georgia with my husband, am retired from a career in Illinois and enjoy an active lifestyle. I have more time than ever before in my life to welcome a new family member and dedicate myself to a pups training and socialization and maybe trying my hand with agility or obedience. I am prepared to speak and visit with breeders, breed ambassadors and members of the association that can direct me to a healthy dog with a sound temperament, that has been properly screened and health tested and ultimately needs a good home. I have plenty of friends and neighbors that can speak to my character and my abilities to properly care for a dog. The NEAA is committed to saving and promoting this fantastic breed and I am committed to raising, loving and honoring an elkhound as well.

We just lost our almost 16 year old female and our 3 year old is depressed as are we. We need another Elkhound in our lives to love and he needs a playmate.

The only requirements are that it be a female who loves to play with other dogs and keep her humans company.
CaliforniaSusanPritchard151 East Rose AveLa Habra90631(562) 694-3207We currently have three beautiful family fur baby Norwegians.I am a retired, this year, science and engineering teacher at the Middle School level. My husband is a nearly retired optometrist. We have had Norwegian fur babies for 36 years and they are our family. We recently lost our dear Ring Gunnar at the age of 13 years 8 mos. We have a large backyard for day time and when we are home ... we are retired ... our family is in and out as they please. We also have a large mountain cabin where our fur family has 2/3 acre to play._x000D_
We love our Norwegian family members. Our youngest 1.5 years and we have always tried to have companions similar in age. When Molly passed last year, nearly 15, Gunnar lost his best buddy. Although he mourned her death, he always my big cuddle bunny and always mommy's boy. Our Norwegians play with our youngest, but not like when we are able to have buddies near their age. Our oldest, Kodiak Bear, is 9 and Maggie Sue is 8. Charlotte being the youngest, is missing Ring Gunnar who was like a cuddly bear. _x000D_
We are hoping to find the right family member who will fit with our other three Norwegians as well as enjoy lots of play time and connecting with Charlotte. It may sound odd, but we are used to having four fur babies for the longest time ... and then were blessed with five for about a year ... and now it feels very strange to have only three fur babies in our family. We love our pups ... and the best complement we have ever received is when friends say they want to come back from another life and be one of our dogs!

AlaskaSheilaKeller227 Irwin StJuneau99801(907) 500-32333 adult, older cats.I was raised on a farm, so we had a lot of farm dogs. I got a Norwegian Elkhound when I turned 14 and raised her up. She was the best farm dog I ever had. I took her to Ohio State University, where she was my companion until her death at the age of 14. I can't really explain how smart and intuitive she was. She was always waiting to see what I wanted, ready to accompany me on our next adventure. I am now much older, and I've had a few dogs, but I have always wanted an elkhound again. It is time. I would love to get a little girl and breed her one day. I am not sure if I'd want a pair. I'd need to start with the girl and see how things
