Are you ready for one of the friendliest dogs in the shelter? This week’s “Diamond in the Ruff” is a social butterfly!

Diamond in the Ruff: Alex

Alex (ID 589974), a 5-year-old Lab mix, has the potential to be a fantastic family dog. Peppy with a deep love of playing, Alex would make a great addition to an active household. (But, he’s not on-the-go all the time… he knows how to sit and calm down when commanded.)

Although Alex has only been with us a month, he came to us after spending some time in another shelter. He was transported here in hopes that we could find him a home faster. It’s about time he finds a forever home! Because Alex loves treats and toys so much, we believe that he will learn quickly and greatly benefit from some basic training.

Thanks to our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers, Alex’s adoption fee has been fully sponsored!
