Meet Alfie

This is Alfie. He will be two years old on September 1st. He was a guest here at Patriots when he was a baby. Unfortunately his momma is at end stage cancer and she brought him back to us. His momma is in our prayers and we promised to find him an awesome new home. He is a Chihuahua mix.

His favorite thing is "greenies" just say that word and he comes running. He does get growly when scared. He has never bitten but does let people know when he is unhappy. He does not like to have his rear end touched - anything else is fine but just not that butt. He loves to sleep burrowed under the blankets. He gets along with other dogs and in fact right now is room mates with Mindy here at the shelter.

He is pretty much a one person dog. He is a little overweight but nothing that a little cut back on the food and a little more exercise won't handle. He is at 16 lbs. and probably should be at about 12.

As to housebreaking - he will ring the bell to go outside to go pee but for some reason he insists on doing his pooping inside. He will need a diligent new owner to break that habit. He has had a roken front ankle and had surgery. He does have a metal pin in it and the only time it bothers him is when he is outside in the cold - the pin will freeze and then he can't walk.

He is neutered, current on his shots and micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $150.00. If interested in meeting this special little guy please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and submit an application. Once tentatively approved we can set up an appointment for you to meet him.
