When you see Alva, you just smile. You can't help it-she just has that way about it!

"Her determination is inspiring, and you just want to be near her. She's interested in everything going on around her, but will also just lay by your side and let you pet her and snuggle." -Kim, volunteer

-Alva's favorite thing (other than your attention)? Stuffed animals! She excitedly brings them to you so you can play with her, too.
-She's the perfect road trip companion, riding quietly and calmly in the car. Bonus points: She's house- and crate-trained, but can free roam while you're gone for the day, too!
-Alva can be a little wobbly on her feet, but she doesn't let that get her down! She's still happy to play fetch and tug of war, then will settle down for cuddles and a chance to be brushed.
