Adoptable
Medium-size, Male, Adult Pointer,
Alcor is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered. He is best in a home without small children. Alcor is currently being fostered in Nokesville, VA.

Hello, my name is Alcor, I'm guessed to be a pointer mix that is about 2-2.5 years old and weigh about 45 lbs.

I've got a bone to pick. This whole foster gig is nice, but I'm looking for my happily ever after! My foster Mom is great, she gives me treats, plays with me, and I LOVE her belly rubs, but this house is not my forever. I am hesitant when meeting new people- I need a slow introduction, time and patience. But I soon warm up and am turning over for belly rubs or have my head in your lap. Maybe you can read more about me and see if we will match up!

I had a foster sister here for awhile and we played great together. I seem to be better with laid back female dogs. I like to play A LOT! My favorite toys seem to be Nylabones and balls of all sorts. I am a chewer, so stuffed animals and soft toys don't last very long when I play with them. I like it when foster Mom throws the ball for me, maybe you can help me work on playing fetch better though. I don't always like to bring the balls back HAHA!

I have some prey drive with bunnies and squirrels. I did get to meet a cat here on accident. She wasn't very nice with her hissing and swatting, but I backed away and left her alone. My foster Momma said I was a good boy!

I like my human foster siblings, but I may not do too well with small children under 10-12. I think my best home would be one with people who like to snuggle sometimes and go on adventures like hiking at other times. I would love to have my own fenced in yard that I can play ball in and sunbathe in the grass when I need a rest.

Some great things about me that have been observed in my foster home. I appear to be:
* house trained
* crate trained
* love going for walks
* love entertaining myself with my toys
* loves to snuggle and give kisses

Apply today, I won’t be available long!

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.
