Alice private

Not At the Shelter

Alice needs a new home because she and the other dog in the home are not getting along, and Alice is the victim in the scuffles. The owners think the other dog is unadoptable, so they are keeping her, and trying to find a new home for Alice. Alice has an interesting history. She was originally part of a litter from a Peace Corps volunteer’s dog in Rawanda. In her first month, Alice survived an eye infection, and lost four toes. She is quite a little survivor who loves cuddling with her owners, sleeping in their bed, and playing tug of war. Alice gets along with cats and most dogs. Although Alice is fine with children, she is rather indifferent to them, and she prefers to cuddle with more predictable adults. Alice is a 4 year old Labrador mix who is spayed, house trained, and up to date with vaccinations. Perhaps because of her early history, Alice is anxious and has separation anxiety when left alone for too long. Alice is living in Mansfield.

Not At the Shelter

Mackenzi (“Mack”) is a 9 year old, spayed Old English Bulldog. She is house trained, and even rings a bell to go out. Mack is crate trained,  but also does fine outside of the crate. She doesn’t chew furniture etc. She loves to snuggle and sleep most of the day. Mack really is a good dog, but she does not do well with the 3 year old toddler in the house, because she doesn’t tolerate being hit with a Barbie doll or having her skin pulled.  She’s up to date with shots, flea/tick prevention, and heart worm pills. Mack needs a home with older children, or adults, and she would do best in a home as the only dog.

These precious little pups, Dooley, Bogart, and Ingrid, are terrier mixes who were rescued with their mom.  Sadly, the pups came down with parvo, but luckily it was a mild case and all 3 did great. Mom is a scruffy and very sweet little terrier mix named Casablanca.  We have no idea about the dad. These pups are approximately 14 weeks old and weigh about  5.5 pounds.  We suspect that they will all be under 20 pounds when fully grown. All three pups are typical puppies.  They love to run around and play. All three have very sweet dispositions.  Like any pups this age, they are working on house training and leash training.  All three puppies are spayed/neutered, current on all vaccinations, micro-chipped, and on heartworm prevention. Due to their small size, we require a home with no children under the age of 12 years.
