Dear Future Family,

My name is Elton, named after another famous Elton, and I am available for adoption at Adopt-A-Dog. Like my namesake, I am truly a force to be reckoned with. While I may not have as much musical talent, everyone at the shelter tells me how adorable and fun I am! I am what some might call a "whirling dervish" and while I do have a lot of energy (I am a Jack Russell Terrier mix after all), I enjoy cuddling up and getting pet more than anything in the world. Since I'm so small and adorable, I try to sneak in extra pets and scratches from my human friends.

I'm not picky when it comes to my new home, I simply need at least one human to make sure the belly rubs and pets keep coming. Ideally, two humans for double the affection. I do like other dogs, and would loooove another dog that could keep up with my energy or who lets me be the hyper one. I also really love toys and can play for hours with my stuffed toys, squeaky toys, pretty much any toy I get. Like I said before, not picky! 

I know my family is out there somewhere, and I hope they're reading this right now! Come get me, family!
