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. I am living in a San Antonio Pets Alive! foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of an additional pet who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care. If you are interested in adopting me, please email with my name and ID#. Please allow up to 24 hours to respond, as all fosters work on a volunteer basis.
