Additional Details:

Alan is an eight year old boy that is very sweet, calm and well behaved. He is a light brindle with beautiful golden eyes. Alan has so much white in his fur already that he looks like a blue brindle. He has lived in a home for years and was returned with his housemate Fargo because his owner's severe health problems made it impossible for him to care for the dogs anymore. He lived with quite a few other dogs in the home of several different breeds and was good with all of them. He is good with small dogs and passed his cat test so should be fine living with either. Alan and Fargo are in separate foster homes and seem to be doing fine being separated so we will adopt them out separately unless someone wants both of them. Alan is a perfect gentleman and just wants snuggle up and lean on you. He would probably make an awesome therapy dog because of his gentle, calm, friendly nature and because he loves children. Because he has lived in a home for years, Alan is not used to being crated and can be a little vocal about it. He is well behaved out of the crate however so may not need one. Alan is an extra large male and weighed in at the vets at 92lbs and is not fat. Don't let his size worry you though. He is very good on leash and very easy to handle. He is so laid back and really a gentle giant of a guy. He did great at his first meet and greet going up to everyone for love, especially the children. This sweet guy will really steal your heart. Alan has a clean bill of health from our vet and is ready to go home. He just had a fresh dental and got all his shots.

Alan had a wonderful home and lots of love until he passed away in his sleep Jan 7th of 2014. RIP Alan the King of the Couch! We hope you are having all the bananas and kitty food snacks you want at the bridge. We love you and we will always miss you!
