Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet!
Love. Love. Love. Did I mention that Albert is easy to love? This boy came in as a scared little boy that will melt your heart the minute he realizes he can trust you. That smile could warm the coldest heart without even trying! Albert was a stray when he came to us. He is listed as a pit mix (although he has a lot of something else in there) thought to be about a year old and weighs about 65 pounds. He has the most gorgeous coloring and those eyes....sigh....If you are interested in Albert and have a dog at home please bring them with you for a meet and greet so we can see if they want to be best buds. He seems to be housetrained. I think he knows basic commands, he certainly knows 'sit for a treat'! He was around a small child today and was so very gentle. He wouldn't even jump up on her when I tried to get him to. I'd say he's a pretty well balanced boy! Please come and meet Albert soon at VBAC&AC 341 S Birdneck Rd. He is waiting in the back in transition B for a spot on the adoption floor. Please ask a caretaker to bring him out to meet you.
