Welcome! Hope you get stuck here with the rest of us, can't wait to hear about your new baby Elijah (great name by the way, made me instantly think of Elijah Wood) and pictures would be great!

Yes, they are different. Dwelfs have short legs and curled ears. They are actually a combination of three breeds: Munchkin, Sphynx and the American curl I believe.

Hello,

I have a Dwelf and they are incredible. They are a mix of Sphinx, Munchkin and American Curl, basically a Dwelf is a short legged Elf cat which is a blend of a Sphinx and American Curl.

Do you have just one? Wondering if he will do okay with just my doggies? They are awesome :)

Yes I have just the one Dwelf. I do have some other cats along with a dog as well. He will be fine with your dog, there personality in general I find to be much more dog like than cat. I’m able to take my Dwelf on walks with my dog as well.

IG as in Instagram, lol. There are quite a few of us who have them for our kitties. I think your Elijah would do very well since he’s so cute and also a dwelf!
