Meet Alonso

Alonso is a young (under 2 years) purebred lab boy (Embark DNA tested; we think he was bred to be a champagne lab) looking for a family to call his own! He came to us in January as a stray from a small town in Iowa, very skinny at only 55 lbs and with a bad skin condition from being on his own so long. We have given him lots of medicated baths and his fur has grown back well, and he's up to 80ish lbs now so he's ready to start looking for a home! He loves all humans - kids included. He does need a home without cats/tiny dogs, but he so wants to play with larger doggos. He tends to get overwhelmed with lots of other dogs so probably won't be a dog park pup (at least right away), but he wants to please his people and will thrive with more one-on-one time. He is working hard on leash skills and basic manners, and does great on car rides. He won't be a good hunting dog as loud noises can tend to spook him, but being outside is one of his favorite things so he would love someone willing to take him out and work with him several times daily. His adoption fee is $250 and he's fully vetted / ready to schedule meets with people any time. If interested in meeting Alonso, please put an application in at www.foreverhomedogs.org!All adoptions are $300 per dog for puppies under 1 year, $250 for adults 1 - 9 years old and $150 for senior dogs which include spay/neuter, micro-chipped and up-to-date on required shots.

Senior dogs, at our discretion, are adopted out at $150 per dog because we know they will have less time with your family and may eventually have more needs as they get older. But we feel these dogs deserve to live out the rest of their lives as part of a loving family.
