Hi! My name is EJ! It's short for Elton John. I have also been known as Khalil.

I came in as a stray to the shelter from an area where it is common for people to let us go. We are able to live there though we are not native.

Due to being a stray, we don't know how long I was out there. Because I can be a sensitive pet, the shelter transferred me to the rescue to help me find my forever home! Is it with you?

I am halfway to full-grown but I do have a little bit of MBD in my lower jaw - nothing to worry about as long as my environment and diet are maintained properly. While my kind is usually quite docile towards people, regular human interaction tends to be very stressful for my kind. I am a pet that is better suited to being watched rather than handled.

My environment and care are critical to ensure that I stay healthy. Normally you would be required to build me a new house but guess what! My current home comes with me! You just need to make sure you have room for it, it is 24" wide x 24" deep x 48" tall.

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and an adoption counselor will reach back out to you!
