[singlepic id=10001 w=320 h=240 float=left]Alvin is a 9 month old pure white boxer who is deaf. As a result, Alvin, will need a very special family who will work with him and allow him to enjoy life to the full.
He was taken in by an older man who didn’t understand his needs so the RSPCA were asked if a new home could be found for him. As can be seen from his photos he is very underweight which is probably due not being able to digest his food due to stress in addition to underfeeding.
Alvin has lived with a cat in his previous home.
Please don’t be put off by his yellowing around his eyes in these photos as his eyes were checked at the hospital just before he arrived with us, but we thought we should get his photos and his appeal on the site as soon as possible. More photos of lovely Alvin to follow.
If you have experience of owning a deaf dog and/or would like to turn Alvin’s life around with a little help for the deaf dog owners’ groups around the country or a trainer with experience, we’d love to hear from you and so would Alvin.
