About Alec

Adoption Fee: $500
Poodle / Shih Tzu
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Alec - Available Shih Tzu/Miniature Poodle Mix 3 y. o., 20 pound neutered male * Active, friendly, playful with other willing dogs * Likes to fetch ball or toy * Loves his raw vegetable snacks, especially broccoli * Sleeps with his human * Uses his human as just another couch pillow* Alec, the little cutie, is looking for his forever home & looking forward to his long hair growing back. Alec came to us with his hair painfully matted all over. He had to be shaved. A playful, affectionate 2 year old, Shih Tzu/Miniature Poodle mix boy, Alec likes going for walks & exploring the yard. Alec is generally a fan of people and likes to sleep with his human. He can be shy at first, but with time, treats & maybe a soft or squeaky toy, Alec shows his friendly side. Alec gets along with the dogs in his foster home. He runs & plays a little with the big & medium size guys. There are no large dogs or cats in his foster home. Alec might need some time before being comfortable with a big dog; with a laid back big dog that time could be short. He would likely not present a danger to cats, but a resident cat might be annoyed by Alec's interest. Alec likes to play chase with another dog or 2 inside or outside. Alec is often in the mood to fetch a toy inside or out. In all weather, Alec does often prefer you to be outside with him. Alec would like a family regularly to take him for walks for exercise & nose work (he is not a marker). With his above average energy & hunter's instinct, a small dog secure fenced yard is a plus. Loud & proud, Alec might not be a good fit in an apartment or condo. You can see Alec active in videos & learn more about him on his public Facebook page, or search on 'Alec of Heather's Foster Dogs.' Alec is house trained, neutered, microchipped & up to date on his vaccinations. He will use a pee pad when the polar vortex sticks around. Alec will require regular professional grooming to keep him looking handsome & comfortably mat-free. So please keep this in mind when considering adopting him. Alec's adoption fee is $500.
