Who’s ready for a Furry Friend Friday interview? Alan is! This cute little guy is a dachshund mix and is up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter in Sterling and is ready to find a family!  He’s still a puppy and is only about 5 months old, so could use some puppy training to make sure he’s on his best behavior.  If that’s something you can do and if this looks like the face of your new best friend, pay him a visit!

So Alan, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

I’m a pretty simple guy, I like belly rubs, running around outside, getting attention, playing fetch, just the usual puppy stuff.  I’m a very friendly guy but can be shy sometimes, but if you give me a belly rub I’ll love you forever!

Do you have a favorite toy?

Well I love to chase things, frisbees, balls, things like that.  Even though I’m on the small side I still love to run around and am pretty fast!

Now I hear you are not originally from Massachusetts, is that correct?

Yes you’re right I’m not a native to this state, I’m originally from Puerto Rico!  It was much warmer there, but so far I’m loving Massachusetts!  All of the people here at the shelter are so nice and told me I’d find the right home in no time!

Is there anything that scares you?

Sometimes other dogs do, I don’t usually get along with them, I’m a pretty feisty guy and am what I guess you would call the alpha male so I don’t like anyone sharing my toys or attention!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well, for starters I would like to be the only dog, I want all of your attention for myself!  I would also need to go to a family that was willing to be patient with me and bring me to training, I’m still young and have some skills I need to master.  I could really go with anyone, I would be great with kids and am a true love bug.

And why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well you never know when an accident can happen, when it comes to puppies like me or even older and wiser dogs, accidents are accidents and its best to be prepared for them if you ask me.

Alan is already such a smarty at such a young age!  We’re sure he’ll pass any puppy training course with flying colors!  When it comes to being prepared for accidents, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!  Call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote today and get your furry friend the protection they deserve!
