Our first-ever Awesome Pet of the Week, sponsored by Joyland, is the lovable Elliott, who was born in 2015 and is now available to adopt.

Here's more about the adorable two-year-old dog from The Haven:

I need a family who will be patient with me while I'm learning, and who will love me unconditionally. I have a lot of love to give, and I adore people! I'm also good with other dogs, so maybe an older, more mannerly furry friend would be good for me, too!

Since Elliott is our Awesome Pet of the Week, if you do choose to make him part of your family, you'll get a free bag of Blue Buffalo Dog Food and a $20 gift certificate from Pets Plus, plus dinner for two at the dog-friendly BushHog's Restaurant.

If you're interested in adopting Elliott or see more cats and dogs looking for a forever home, you can visit The Haven Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. or Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. to meet him. It's located at 4501 N Farm to Market 1729 in Lubbock, Texas.
