Alex patiently waits to be let out of his kennel in the morning and then he shoots out of his kennel and “dances” all over the house. When he gets excited, he exhibits signs of a bull in the china shop and his ears stop working. Once he gets over his excitement, he is wonderfully attentive and responsive. Alex really wants to please, but needs a patient, consistent pack leader to teach him the routines. When Alex is not on high speed, he loves to snuggle.
He loves squeak toys, balls, and especially squeaky balls. He likes to have his toys spread all over the floor, but he will bring his toys to you to be put away. Alex loves and needs to run, so a round or two of playing ball is mandatory each day. Alex has a watch dog sounding bark when people walk by or knock on the door. He is not aggressive or possessive, but he does jump and bounce when meeting people.
Alex has no known health issues. You can see more photos of Alex on our website: www.acsrwa.org If your home has a place to run and someone to play with, contact ACSR to meet Alex. Alex's adoption fee is $225.
