My name is Alfonse and I am looking for a family to call my own. I have bounced around throughout my 5 years of life and I’m finally ready to settle down. I am neutered & fully vaccinated, which I hear can be an asset to finding a forever home! Could you open your heart and home to me?
I am not a noisy pup, and I’ve lived in attached housing and apartment life – well, I may bark if I need to go to the bathroom, or if you forgot to feed me! As long as a family doesn’t use a crate, I am quite content to be left to my own devices. I am not familiar with this “crate” thing, so it makes me quite nervous & anxious to be in one. I prefer to be in a dog safe area of the home, and I will respect baby gates.
I am quite well mannered, though I may jump up for a hug but I promise I’m gentle about it! I have completed a basic obedience class, so I know my basic commands “sit” “lay down” etc but expect some husky stubbornness sometimes, while I give you the cute eyes. You can convince me with food – I’m very food motivated! I am very loving and cuddly, I follow my people around the house, and also give them loving nibbles on their hands for pets. I have lived with other dogs and cats, and as long as the other pets are dog-savvy then I am happy to share my space with them, and its nice to have some playmates. I have even lived with kids, including young toddlers. As you can see, I am a well rounded and socialized man. I enjoy a good exercise at dog parks and will stay close to my people.
Sadly, since I have been in so many new places, I am looking for a family to give me structure and consistency throughout the rest of my days. I would love to get my daily exercise, with a good walk or run before you leave for work, and then again when you return or have a yard or nearby park for some play! I do love my ball as well. I do pull on leash, so could either use some training, or maybe there’s a home out there looking to do some canicross, skijoring or biking with me to harness my instincts?
I have been without regular exercise in my previous homes, and for this reason I have gotten into things (mostly looking for food, boy do I love that!) or peed in the house (I am now trying this new thing called a “belly band”). I’m looking for a family willing to show me what a routine life is like, so I may need a little patience at first, but I am overall not destructive in the house and adjust to new homes quite easily. A family with breed experience may help as well, since it is important for my family to know that I may resource guard my food – but as long as my family is aware, I really don’t mean any harm! I’m just a dog with an unstable past, looking for a bright & happy future!
