Alvin is a 1 yr old chow shar-pei mix. He was first brought into PACC as a stray, but now has a loving foster home and searching for a forever home. Alvin is just a bundle of energy. His favorite thing in the world is going for a nice long morning run or hike. He will need a home that will be able to provide him with plenty of exercise, and ideally a fenced in yard for him to run around in. In fact, he loves running so much that he doesn’t even need to chase a toy to get going. Actually, he will forget he even had a toy in the first place once he starts running. Alvin will do best in a home where there are no other dogs, and no young kids; he does not quite understand the importance of being gentle while playing or when eating a treat. His favorite pastimes include hogging the bed, following his foster mommy around the house, and destroying his toys. No toy can withstand his might.
