My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

My name is Alvin, If you are looking for a buddy to snuggle on the couch with, I am your guy! I also like to play with squeaky toys and soccer balls. I came from Arkansas back in the day, where I had a rough start and I sometimes am selective of my dog friends. After a proper introduction with new dogs though, I love to play with them. 
Not to brag, but I am really smart, too! I have completed obedience 1 class and know a lot of verbal commands and I'm eager to learn more!! I like to make my people happy and smile, I'll smile back! I am very food motivated, so if you want to teach me even more it won’t be hard! I Love my food puzzle and keeping my mind and body active. I'd be the best co-pilot in the car! I am also kennel trained and have learned how to walk with a gentle leader so I don’t pull so much. And yes, I'm house trained, what do you think I am an animal?!  I do not like cats and get very nervous around children so I would do best in a home without either. Looking for a mature home that has had some dog experience. I wouldn’t mind being the only dog so I can get lots of love and attention, but I would also be happy with another doggy friend as long as we are a good fit. I’m eagerly waiting for someone to please! 
Alvin's adoption fee is $250 and includes his neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and preventatives. Last Hope requires that all animals be kept as indoor pets only, altered and current on vaccinations and preventatives.  Our adoption process includes reference and background checks, a vet check and a home visit.
