    Hi I’m Alton! I came into AARCS’ care in October and they helped me feel accepted and loved again. Now I have all the love to give back and I can’t wait to meet my furever family.

    I am just settling into my new foster home. The first day was a bit difficult because I missed my shelter family but it didn’t take long for me to get comfortable. I love my foster mom so much. I like to spend my time following her around and taking in her routine. My favorite time of day is near bed time when we snuggle before I head to bed in my crate. I have a foster brother who’s a bit bigger then me. We both love stuffed animals so we have been tossing our bear around together. I enjoy our family walks. At times I get a bit excited and try to get ahead of my handler but I am learning to slow down and take in the scenery. I need a bit of medical attention before I join my furever family but I just can’t wait to meet you and give you all the snuggles.

    My foster mom says I am a sweet boy and will make the perfect addition to your family
