Al Poochino

Al Poochino needs a home

Al Poochino is an 8-month-old neutered tan beagle blend.

"I am a fun-loving, 28-pound dog looking for an active family.

I have good social skills. I get along with children, other dogs and even cats. I will need daily exercise to wear down my puppy energy.

"The staff at the Allen County SPCA is teaching me how to sit on command. I enjoy learning and hope to learn more commands, so signing me up for obedience classes would make me really happy.

"I do well with housebreaking but I may need help in my new home until I get familiar with your routine. I am a relatively-low maintenance dog but would like a regular brushing to keep my coat looking

and feeling nice.

"Looking for a sweet and young pup? Come out and play with me."

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
