Bon jour! My name is Alessie, and I am a sweet, joyful gal who is looking for a lifetime of fun with a family who loves me. I love going for long walkies to explore. I do need to take a polite pass on a home with cats because I am too interested in chasing them. I haven't had a chance to meet any kiddos yet, but with my outgoing personality I think I would do fine with children. I am crate trained and mostly potty trained (I just need some time to learn the routine of my new home); I am a smart girl who will thrive with some training and a chance to work my brain, so my adopters will be required to sign me up for classes. I think we will have a great time learning and bonding together in such a fun environment, and think it could be the first of many fun adventures together! Wanna go on an adventure of a lifetime with me by your side? Please fill out an adoption application soon so we can start our new life together!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
