I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Alice Sponsored!!'s Story...
Hi there!! My name is Alice! I am only 9 months old and I weigh about 45 lbs.
I have been here at the shelter since July! My heart is aching and I am losing hope that there is a home out there waiting to welcome me to their family.
I have watched so many of my friends find their new homes but I am still here waiting.
I do have a lot of energy, but I truly am a great girl. I just need to be able to have a place to exercise. Once I get to play for just a little bit I am a really good girl!
I got to go to an adoption event in September and I was an absolute delight! I was happy, quiet, had great manners and I was very easy to handle. My tail wagged at every single person I seen while I was there, the same as it does at the pound.
I get along great with the other dogs here at the pound! I get to go outside in the play yard with one of the large play groups (usually with 6-12 other dogs) to play.
So I guess you're wondering what potential "issues" I must have with having been here as long as I have... the truth is that I was VERY skinny when I came in to the pound, so understandably, I do guard my food from the other dogs. I haven't tried to bite people over my food.
The solution for this is pretty simple. I just need fed separately. Also, if my new family has other dogs, it would be a great idea not to give me high priority items while I am with the other dogs "just in case".
I am still VERY young and resource guarding is something that can be resolved with a savvy owner, so please don't pass me up just 'cause I don't want to share my food. It's comparable to a stranger on the street walking up and taking food off of your plate. Can you blame me?
I promise I am a great girl and all I want is a chance!
I'm so sad that all of my friends are getting adopted and I am stuck here day after day, week after week, month after month watching everyone BUT me get adopted!
If you adopt me, I hereby promise to be the best dog I can possibly be, love you unconditionally and give you lots of kisses!!
Alice aka Allie Cat!
**Update** I have received a full $110 thanks so much to Rocky and Erin!!
