Breed: Pug x Jack Russell
Age: 4 Years
ALVIN WILL BE BEST SUITED TO A HOME WITH CHILDREN OVER 13 YEARS, AND AS THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME.
A 4 year old Jack Russel X Pug, Alvin is a total sweetheart. Who could resist his huge underbite and big round eyes!
After leaving the stress of the pound behind, he settled into his foster home incredibly quickly, and his personality began to shine through.
Alvin is a little ball of energy who loves nothing more than a good game of tug-o-war with his toy zebra and the occasional case of the “zoomies”! Walking with his humans is also among his favourite activities – he loves to frolic in the grass and smell all the smells. His foster parents have walked all over the city with him and his little legs have not tired (though he does enjoy a solid nap afterwards!)
He is a huge snuggle-bug, and when he does tire, he can often be found napping with his humans on the couch. In fact, given the choice, he’ll choose your lap over the couch! Cuddling is his specialty.
He needs a family who is committed to positive reinforcement, as he will require ongoing training. He hasn’t had much training in his life to date. While he’s well on his way, he is not completely house trained. He has a feet/ankle nibbling tendency which his foster family is working on. Although he’s fine with most dogs, we recommend exposure to dogs under supervision. Alvin would love a home where he is not left alone every day of the week.
Alvin is a house dog and must have access via a doggie door or similar 24 hours a day.
Alvin comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm treated. The adoption fee is $495. Alvin is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Alvin please email Denise
