Alfie, "a diamond taking shape", is a rescued junior puppy trying to learn that humans can be kind.
He is a Beagle & Chihuahua mix, 9 months of age, good with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for a hero adoption at Nevada SPCA.
All indications suggest Alfie has never experienced love or compassion in a home. When people approach he flattens himself to the ground and hopes they don't notice him. He is afraid of being touch and terrified by leashes around his neck.
A big sister or brother dog, in conjunction with a steady and calm lifestyle routine, can help him adjust and understand he is safe.
Please share Alfie's picture to help him find someone wonderful so he can reach his full loving potential.
We rescued Alfie from a shelter that ran out of space. Nothing further is known about his origins.
