He's young, cute and cuddly, but that's not all. Alpha will immediately elevate your mood when you watch him play with his toys, tossing them in the air and retrieving them for more play. When he's done entertaining you, he will snuggle up beside you for a nice little snooze.
Alpha will need a home without young children and will do best in a home with a yard where he can continue to entertain you both outside and inside. If you're like Alpha and prefer a nice quiet home life, he just might be your new best friend.
