But he spends his days snoozing or entertaining himself with chew toys. Elon does know basic training and is eager to learn more advanced training in exchange for some treats.

You can adopt Elon and other adorable dogs and cats by visiting the PAWS Chicago website and clicking on the virtual adoption process.

Also, you can start training for PAWS Chicago 5K. The 21st annual walk/run event is September 18. But early bird tickets are now available.
