Weight: 35 lbs
Breed Stated on Paperwork: Heeler Mix

In a Nutshell: Alex Junior is a Texas transplant puppy who has taken to the Portland life well: learning the ropes from her canine foster sibling and winning over everyone she’s met! She’s lived comfortably in foster with cats and dogs of all sizes, and LOVES to play (toys, tug, chase – you name it, she’s down). She’s housetrained, great on leash, and comfortable crated. Relatively high energy and eager to learn, Alex Jr. will do best in a home with an active lifestyle and able to keep her attention engaged. Like all puppies, Alex Jr. will be available for adoption beginning with the Worth the Wait List prior to general adoption applications and will benefit from an adoptive guardian committed to helping him continue to thrive by utilizing positive reinforcement training.
