Hi! My name is Alcor! Thanks for checking me out 😍
I’m guessed to be a pointer mix, and about 4 years old. I weigh around 45lbs, so I’m a medium sized dog. :)


🐾 What’s so great about me? Let me just tell you, I (am):
* house & crate trained
* love going for walks my leash skills have vastly improved since I arrived
* love entertaining myself with my toys
* loves to snuggle and give kisses
* LOVE to go for rides and if we can get a pup cup from Starbucks or the Ice Cream shop while we are out.....that would be great!

🐾 I'm a good boy and having fun at my foster home ; they treat me like one of their own. But let's face it. I'm looking for a happy ending where I get my forever family :)

🐾 I would love a forever home with people who like to snuggle and sometimes go on adventures like hiking and car rides.

🐾 My foster mom said I really need a home with a fenced yard so I can run and play.

Here's me in action: Click here To see me having some fun in the snow!
here, enjoying a peanut butter treat, Yum!!!
here, playing with a flirt pole,
and here Having some fun with rope toys.

🐾 I would prefer to have all your attention and be your only pet. My foster Mom doesn't know my past but she said I deserve to get all the attention.

🐾I am hesitant when meeting new people so I need a patient adopter that will let me learn to trust at my own speed.... When I warm up to you, you will know because I'm turning over for belly rubs or have my head in your lap. Once I’m comfortable I’m all yours! ❤️

🐾 My foster mom tells me small animals like cats and squirrels are not toys so I can’t play with them. So it should be noted I do have some prey drive, so a home without cats is best for me 😊

🐾 I really want my forever family. Would I be a fit for yours? If so, Hit that apply button and lets get our adventure together started!

Alcor is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without dogs and is best in a home without small children. Alcor is currently being fostered in Nokesville, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
