Help me get seen & adopted!
Facts about Alvin
Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
I am already neutered.
Alvin is a playful pooch! He is so much fun and will make you smile! He loves to explore, so walks would be a great adventure for him! He needs a little work on his manners so some basic obedience training would be beneficial for him. We also recommend that you bring any potential furry siblings in to meet Alvin, as he can be very energetic around other dogs.
Busy Bee I'm a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job's done, I'll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings. I'm a dog on a mission to please you and myself.
Go-Getter Want to get more exercise? Action is my middle name. My 'let's GO!' lifestyle will keep you motivated to get outside and move. I've got tons of energy, and just like the sun, I'm burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I'll run for miles, chase a ball for hours, and still want to play at the end of the day.
