Alvin landed at Douglas County Animal Control with a nasty case of demodex mange. When he arrived, he was pretty much hairless and his skin was riddled with infection and scabs. In April 2012, we took Alvin in and started treatment for his mange. His hair has come back in beautifully since. A few months after Alvins mange treatment, we noticed his eye was constantly watering ... Alvin had an eyelash growing into his eye and had to have surgery to correct his entropion.
Alvin is a handsome and sweet boy whose goofy personality shines bright. He is well-mannered and really enjoys a good roll in the grass or simply sunning himself on the porch. He even walks really nicely on a leash, is great for baths, and rides well in the car. Alvin has been with us for quite some time and we cannot figure out why. He is housebroken, crate-trained, and a joy to be around. Alvin is definitely a volunteer favorite. With the proper introduction, he does really well with other dogs and has had several doggie play-buddies over the years. We even took Alvin to a fundraising event with loud, live music and big crowds where he proved to be a champion! This boy has great nerves. Alvin is a healthy boy who would love a forever home to give him all the attention he deserves.
