Alvin is a very sweet and expressive gentleman. He pleasantly greets his foster mom with a gentle, “woo, woo, woo,” to show his appreciation of her return. He enjoys the company of the resident canine and always displays exceptional house manners. Manners are his specialty. He’s perfectly house trained, does exceedingly well on the leash and has never shown any aggression.

Although Alvin may not be a hundred percent golden, he is most assuredly one hundred percent Golden in nature and temperament. He’s a happy and relaxed gentleman. His energy requirements are average and he’s not very demanding. He would make anyone a grand companion!

Ideal home:

Alvin’s sweet nature would allow him to do well in any home environment.  Alvin is heartworm positive, however, so he needs a forever family who will take him through heartworm treatment at Gold Ribbon Rescue's (GRR) expense.  If you're interested in sweet Alvin, reach out to GRR for a meet and greet!
