Over the years we see that the number of dogs Elliott keeps can vary from 38 to up to 100. I have to wonder what happens to his dogs when he no longer has a use for them. Anyone know? In this day of puppy mills, and that abuse I am surprised no one has asked this before.

Anyone who's been to their fan club event can attest that the facilities that his dogs are kept in are top knotch. The number hasn't fluctuated up and down. It's grown from 38 to somewhere around 80. These animals belong to him, his father, and I'm sure others. They are trained, and serve a purpose, but he's never pretended that any of them are like lap dogs. Dogs that are trained in hunting don't make the best pets anyway, they can be very high strung and hyper. If you watch the video on his website about hunting, it looks like he has his group of dogs that he uses regularly, and the rest are probably used within the group or rotated so they don't get worn out. It's a large hunting operation they run. His animals aren't mistreated or abused, and when they go on hunts they are hooked up with GPS devices so they don't get lost. He seems to be very proud of them. He named the latest batch of puppies after Transformers. Elliott's a big fan of the movies.

They were interviewing someone pre-race and she was standing behind the person being interviewed. Looked like Elliott was talking to Martin Truex and his girlfriend and she was there with her back to the camera.

I thought it was interesting that they had a close up of him but not her.

This is what I observed. They were interviewing Denny and in the background was Elliott, her and I didn’t notice who the other person was. What I saw was a heated conversation. Elliott was looking across at whoever was there while A stood there with her arms crossed. He was talking, 90 to nothing, constant talking. He was talking with his mouth, one hand and the other hand was tapping whatever he was leaning against. That hand never stopped tapping nor did his mouth quit moving. He would turn to her occasionally but not often. The conversation was heated, I think she always starts a fight before every race. Finally, he turned completely around and put both hands on whatever he was leaning on and looked straight ahead. He was highly pissed, you could tell during the anthem when they showed him, so very pissed. Who knows what she did.

Like most hunting dog owners, Elliott does take good care of his stock. But the question of what happens to the dogs when they are no longer useful as hunting dogs is interesting. That is the dark side of breeders that a lot of them don't want you to know about. Who knows what the answer is in this case though.

Our dogs are very loving, calm dogs when NOT hunting. They work off the excess energy while running and barking. When they get older, they make the GREATEST family pets, especially to those with small children. They are so loving. So often we'll adopt them out to family and friends-that way we get to see them from time to time. We really come to love EACH dog. Each one has his/her own personality. WE NEVER put an ol' dog down!! We don't 'get rid of them' either!
They are more loving and better behaved than MOST humans! And yes we have had 4 to 8 packs of dogs at a time. You'd be amazed at how excited you can get when one of your babies does a good job and is bouncing up and down in excitment (the dogs not us bouncing)Ha. I LOVE our 4legged babies!
