Adoptable pet of the week: Alice with a heart-shaped nose

Feb 13 2019, 10:29 pm

What could be more perfect for sharing the love on Valentine’s Day than helping to find a home for a doggo with a heart-shaped nose?

Alice is far from home, but has a long way to go.

Originally taken in by Bull Terrier Rescue Inc. in California, this pup made the journey to BC, but found herself homeless yet again this summer when her owner needed to surrender her.

Instead of having her go all the way back down to Cali, the nice folks at the non-profit agency Aide for Paws Rescue took Alice in — and are now looking to find her forever home.

If you don’t know a lot about bull terriers here’s a little primer from the American Kennel Club. They are silly “eggheads” that are frequently comical and mischievous. The breed is playful and exuberant. They are not for the faint of heart: Like many terriers, they are stubborn. And because of their size, they thrive on exercise.

Now back to Alice. She’s three or four years old, and loves playing fetch and getting the “zoomies.”

Like many of her breed, she has food allergies, but is doing very well on a hypoallergenic diet. Because of her allergies, Aide for Paws is trying to find a home without small kids, because, well, a lot of food tends to end up on the floor and into the waiting dog’s mouths.

The winter weather has been a super fun time for Alice, and she loves sliding down snow banks on her belly.  Also, she looks super boss in a winter sweater.

If you are interested in meeting Alice, please contact Bull Terrier Rescue Inc. at [email protected]  She is currently being fostered in Cloverdale.

Her adoption fee is $400, and includes the cost of permanent identification (microchip or tattoo), as well as basic vaccinations.

The group also has a number of other adoptable dogs, and one cat.
