Elliot (now known as Dallas) came to Animal Haven all the way from an overcrowded shelter in Los Angeles in hopes of finding a new family—and that he did! Dallas's adopters reached out with an update on this fluffy, gentle pup.

"My family and I just wanted to update you on Dallas (formerly known as Elliot). We named him after our favorite football team, the Dallas Cowboys! We adopted Dallas in September 2023. Our family is from RI so we traveled to NYC just to meet him and instantly fell in love! My husband and I wanted to make sure we adopted a dog that was good around children. We have three children all under the age of 6 and they all adore Dallas! And he is so well behaved around them. The moment we brought him home it was like he belonged. He goes everywhere with us. He loves car rides and walks on the beach. We love taking him to pet stores and spoiling him!  He also loves to snuggle up in bed when it’s bedtime and is always so excited to see us when we come home. We look forward to many more years with our baby boy!"
