Alvin [ADOPTED FEBRUARY 6] is an 18 month old male. His hair is field coated and is rust colored. Alvin has a full tail that he loves to wag! When Alvin came into rescue he seemed to be very shy, but now that he's in a foster home that has only one other dog we are seeing that he's only shy in crowds! He is a very sweet and affectionate boy who was found as a stray in Chicago. He is somewhat apprehensive of new situations, but warms up quickly. He loves to play outside in the snow. Alvin is neutered, current on vaccines, and is heartworm negative. He will chase after cats, but will not hurt them. He just likes the running part! Alvin is unsure of grooming, so will need to go to a family with a very patient groomer! The sound of the clippers scares him, but he's okay if you cut his hair with shears only. Alvin knows his name well and we would recommend obedience school for him since he's so very young.
