My name is Elias, and I'm a big, gentle, black & tan dog looking for a forever home to call my own! My dream home is quiet with lots of snuggles from owners who love me and who have had some prior experience with dogs. Who's up for going for a nice walk and then hanging out by the couch? Me! I like a nice and easy pace and I'll blend right in with my relaxed vibe. I'm more interested in hanging out with the people who love me, rather than playing lots of fetch or jumping around. I do best if I'm the only dog in the house.

I have a bit of a hard time going up and down stairs - so no stairs (or very minimal stairs) please. I also have seizures so I'm on daily medication to keep the seizures at bay. Sometimes I have a hard time seeing, but generally get around great!

Some other things about me: I'm a quiet and confident sweetheart (did I mention that I'm a big guy?), I have the sweetest brown eyes, and I love getting rewarded for being a good boy with snuggles and chewy treats!
