Alec is such a sweet boy. He prefers quiet and one-on-one time with the volunteers and staff over the hustle and bustle of shelter life. His personality really comes out when he is out alone with his people -- like at your home ;-) However, he isn't good with young children and is very selective about his canine company. He loves to cuddle up on the couch and wishes for a couch of his own one day. He has moderate energy and loves to explore with his nose on walks. He loves treats and will do anything for a cookie -- like sit or paw -- and is ready to learn more! He lived with two of our staff members for a short time and they said he is well mannered in the house. He just needs someone to work with him on his resource guarding habit. He has gotten better with some dedication from staff and volunteers but will need to continue in a house with a firm hand. Give our "Al-pal" a chance and see how goofy and cuddly this guy is! Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
