Alvin was turned in by someone who said they found him as a stray. This sweet boy is young at heart, and an absolute flirt. Sometimes he seems to disappear from sight, but be sure to check under the nearest blanket...this boy likes to burrow. He is the quintessential lap dog.
When Alvin arrived into rescue he was in need of a dental and a serious nail clipping. He was also probably about 2 lbs underweight, but he has filled out nicely and his dental needs have been addressed, though he will need regular dentals. Alvin was also diagnosed with luxating patella, commonly referred to as "trick knee" in both of his back legs. Alvin underwent surgery on both knees, and unfortunately had to have a repeat surgery on one of them, as sometimes happens. This sweet boy has recuperated and definitely deserves a forever home where he can be loved and cherished, especially after such a lengthy stay in foster care.
There is no one that meets this little man that doesn't fall head over heels for him. Alvin has done well with cats and other dogs, though he could easily be an only child, receiving all of the attention. Alvin adores the children in his foster home and does like to sleep with them. We recommend children 12 yrs and older for Alvin's safety.
Alvin is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Alvin has tested negative for heartworms and is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative.
If you are interested in Alvin, please submit a Dog Adoption Application
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
**Local adoptions preferred (within 1-2 hrs of the Greater New Orleans area), but please contact us if you live outside of this area, as exceptions are sometimes made on an individual basis depending on the dog or circumstances. We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
