found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
He's only been here a couple days, but he's already one of our favorites with his floppy ears and easygoing personality. He loves people and any kind of attention..... especially the kind that comes with lots of treats.
But his life wasn't always so carefree. He and Jimmy Dean (already adopted) were found wandering in Mill Creek Park last week by a Good Samaritan who took them in out of the cold.
With a bit of detective work, she managed to track down their former owner. That should have meant a happy end to their story, but instead, that's when their story turned tragic.
Their primary caregiver was a 16-year-old girl. Earlier in the week, her father decided he no longer wanted the dogs in the house, so he took them to the pound.
When he arrived though, he discovered it wasn't quite that simple. In order to surrender your own dogs to the pound, there's an intake fee, and he wasn't willing to pay. So instead, he loaded them back in the car, drove a short while, and dumped them both in the park before driving away without a second glance.
So now Alfred is searching for a new home. His friend, Jimmy Dean, will be moving on to his new home in just a couple days, and he's hoping he won't be left behind without a family.
Alfred is believed to be a Beagle/Hound mix. He's only 3 1/2 months old, but he's already a pretty good-sized boy, so we're expecting him to be around 60 pounds as an adult.
You can meet Alfred at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. He just arrived, so he has not yet completed all of his healthcare, but he can be reserved for adoption in the meantime and will be ready to go home in just a few days.
