Al Capone or “Al” is a one-year-old Chihuahua-Dachshund mix who can be a very sweet and loving dog once you get to know him. At first he is very nervous and shy with new people, so introductions need to be made slowly and multiple meets are necessary. Once Al is bonded, he’s very playful and will follow you around. Al does need some training since he is still young. When Center staff dog tested him they found out he only likes dogs his size or smaller. Since Al is nervous with new people, the Center feels he would do best in a home with no young children.

To meet Al and other pets in need of homes please visit the nonprofit, no-kill Center for Animal Health and Welfare located at 1165 Island Park Road, Easton, or call 610-252-2722 for more information. Click here to make a donation to the Center. Find the Center’s wish list–which includes items they need–here.

The center is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12 to 4 p.m. and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 12 to 6 p.m. Please note: If a dog you would like to meet is housed at the shelter please call the front desk to prearrange a visit. Prescheduling a visit will give you the time needed to see if the dog you’re interested in is a good fit. Unscheduled visits with dogs are allowed, but are limited to one dog per day for a maximum of 15 minutes per visit.
