Older Dogs Available
Older dogs become available from ALCA member breeders for a variety of reasons. Often, a retiring breeding dog will become available for placement in a "forever" home. Or, a puppy may have been held back for potential breeding stock and the breeder may decide that the puppy does not fit their breeding program and therefore becomes available for adoption.
ALCA applauds the efforts of their breeders in placing their older dogs in an environment where they will be loved and cared for. It is always a very difficult time for a caring breeder to part with a beloved dog. We will make every effort to give a brief history of the available dog and list the circumstances that the breeder feels will fit the needs of the older dog available.
