Facts about Alice

  • Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 18070

Alice is a Shepherd Mix, her estimated date of birth is 12/1/11 and she weighs 45 lbs. She is up to date on all of her shots and she is fixed.

Alice is a very sweet girl. She is good with people and with other dogs, very happy and friendly. We first took Alice in after she was hit by a car which fractured her pelvis and caused a condition known as megacolon. Megacolon is a state of permanently increased diameter of the large bowel. This change in intestinal structure leads to abnormal function, including reduced colonic motility and chronic constipation. Fecal retention in Alice's colon causes dilation of the colon and can somewhat impair her ability to poop. We have been able to get her much better health-wise and with medication and care Alice should be able to lead a healthy long life. She currently receives a daily stool softener and Cisapride, a medication that increases the motility in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Currently Alice is not house broken and does not have normal stools. They are often watery and grey and come out a little bit at a time.

Please contact We do not have a central location to see our dogs. We do adoption events every Saturday at Petco, 3495 Sports Arena Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92110 from 9am to 2pm.

Our Adoption Process...

Step 1
Fill out an application at our website. You can choose our ONLINE application or DOWNLOADABLE application.

Step 2
Submit your adoption application to us. It may take 24-72 hours before your application is processed and you receive a response back.

Step 3
If your application is approved, we will email you to schedule a "Meet & Greet". Please make sure you take any family members and other dogs to see how the initial introduction goes. That makes the entry into the new home easier for the dog and for you. You will be given a time and day, usually Saturday to meet your prospective pet. You will be given a one hour appointment window where you can come to meet them. When you get an appointment time and day the dog is locked in for you to see only and will not be released to any one else.

Step 4
Meet your prospective new pet. Spend time time with them and see how it goes.

Step 5
Contract & Payment. You must sign an adoption contract and provide payment. If your "Meet & Greet" goes well, you will complete an adoption contract at the appointment and can take the dog home then. We ask for a suggested adoption donation to help us cover spay/neutering, shots, medical treatment, food, and supplies. These suggested adoption donation amounts only partially cover the cost of expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Then you and your new best friend live happily ever after. It's as simple as that!

Step 6
Take your new best friend home!

What if the adoption doesn't work out?
We have a lifetime return policy on our dogs as we don't want to see them turned back into a shelter. The application process helps prevent such an issue, so it's very important that you are honest when answering the questions. Not all dogs are compatible in all situations, so it is imperative that you are forthright in the application process to find the right match. However, be sure you are ready to make a full commitment to adopting a dog, whether a puppy or an adult.

It can take a good 72 hrs for a dog to really adjust to his/her new environment. A lot really depends on the dog's past so the prospect of adopting should be well-thought-out & the commitment should be taken seriously.
