The kind Mr. Alvin. Mr. Alvin is a regal and jovial gentleman. He is a Golden Retriever.
He is mad for the hairdryer. He has a favorite treat: water from the toilet.
Although sometimes he eats any morsel of food that stays on the ground for more than 5 seconds, he is as loyal a pet as any canine could conceivably be.
Unfortunately, Alvin was a stray with his collar embedded around his neck and in need of surgery to remove it. Alvin was saved by a courageous animal loving human and brought to Shelterpups.com for a second chance at a great life.
Alvin hopes for just one thing: a fresh start in a new home. Your home! Alvin is a shy, low energy dog. Alvin's sweet and sensitive demeanor makes him the perfect adoptable friend for humans that like to snuggle. Some describe Alvin as a little bit moody and he is recommended for a home where he'll get extra patient attention and training.
He had some accidents when he first arrived at the Shelter Pups, but has been trained during the stay.
