Hey everyone! My name is Alan. I came from Texas originally. My mom Gertie was picked up as a stray in Houston, Texas back in early December. She was at the shelter for a few weeks and during that time the staff realized she was pregnant. Ruh roh! They knew how unsafe it can be for puppies to be born in the shelter because puppies like me have no immunity to all the diseases that can spread there. They pleaded for help, and an awesome lady came to pick up my mom! In no time at all, she safety gave birth to me and my 7 brothers and sisters. Now, we are getting old enough to travel and be adopted, so we get to come to Minnesota soon! I am a puppy and learning all the new things that puppies need to learn. Puppies typically love dogs, cats, kids, and adults. I am high energy and I need a family that has the time and patience for a puppy. The reward is puppy breath and kisses!
*The breed of a shelter puppy is often times a guess based on what traits the dog presents when they are brought into the shelter. We cannot guarantee the breed or size they will be full grown.*
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
