Posted on 4/7/23, and the picture was taken on 4/1/23. Alvey was picked up by the Smith County, TX Animal Shelter on 9/1/22. We picked him up on 9/30/22, he was already neutered, estimated to have been born in 2012, and weighed 68 pounds on 4/1/23. Alvey is deaf, and had an ear infection when we picked him up that was treated. We thought maybe he could hear again after he was treated, but he is still deaf, so he will require a fenced yard. He loves sleeping on dog beds, loves to be pet, is good with other dogs, good on a leash, and is crate trained. We don't know if he is house trained. He happily walks fast to me when he sees me, to get some attention. He would love to spend his last few years in a home that he could give a lot of love to. $25 adoption fee, since donations were made for his vet care, and he was already neutered.
