Alex has previously been a loved family pet, but the property didn’t have high fencing and Alex was able to jump over easily. Alex has a social nature and just loves attention. He is also very responsive to correction, and really wants to please you. He hates grumpy voices and immediately becomes submissive if he thinks he has done something wrong.
Alex really wants a hooman he can hang out with, go on adventures with, play games with and just to share life with. He will listen to your troubles, and let you give him a tummy rub while you talk. Because he knows that humans love nothing more than to rub a dog’s belly.
Could you offer Alex a comfy bed, quality food, and loads of love and daily exercise? Plus games and training and fun? If so, Alex would love to meet you.
As with all Pound Hounds, Alex must be allowed inside the home (this includes sleeping) so he can really be part of the family.
