Meet Alejandro! He's our little shy boy we're currently working with and are dedicated to finding him a wonderful home. Alejandro is a small dog in a big world and hasn't built trust with people just yet but is progressing each day. He shows lots of interest in meeting new people although he has his ways of coping. He treats every visitor like an old fashion "first date". No touching! Alejandro loves the small talk and would rather hear more about you then talk about himself. Do you live alone, have kids, job, you know the basic stuff. Once he gets to know you better he will loosen up and admire you as you talk about how cute he is. Going for walks daily seems to help him build more confidence and that extra push. He may never be that outgoing guy but he will always be your guy. If your'e looking for someone to chat with or vent to just stop by and visit Alejandro. He's a great listener!
