Hi Hi Hi!!!! My name is Alfredo! I also answer to Al, Alfie, Puppy and Wackadoodle! I came into an area shelter and had lots of tight mats that had to be shaved out. So now I'm naked but I promise I will be extra adorable when my hair grows back. I have beautiful hair like a Shih Tzu and long legs and nose like a Poodle so I am probably a Shih Tzu Poodle mix or, as my foster mom likes to say based on my current silly hair cut, a Liondoodle! As you know, Liondoodles are known for their loud barks and need to chew. I am no exception! I love to chew on things I'm not supposed to — shoes, coat sleeves, envelopes, newspapers... you get the idea! I also love appropriate toys so my new home will need to commit to puppy proofing the house and providing me with safe chewing options. I also like to chew on the fingers of live prey (aka my foster mom)! I am pretty stubborn about this and need my new owner to be committed to helping me curb this habit.
I actually don't bark too much but can be loud if I'm left in my crate when I don't want to be. I am getting better about this but apartments would not be good for me. I do love other dogs! I would love a small dog friend who likes to play in my new home! I like big dogs too but they can be scary if they are a bit too forward. If they let me initiate play I am all in! I also love to go for walks. I am very good on a leash and have easily hiked 8 miles! If you want a couch potato, I'm not your man! I am also friendly with everyone I meet so if you like to walk the greenway I can do it with ease ❤
If you think that you can handle owning a silly Liondoodle please fill out an application! I have been neutered, microchipped, and am up-to-date on my vaccines and my flea and heartworm prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
