Pet name:
Alice is a Shepherd Mix, her estimated date of birth is 12/1/11 and she weighs 45 lbs. She is up to date on all of her shots and she is fixed. Alice is a very sweet girl. She is good with people and with other dogs, very happy and friendly. We first took Alice in after she was hit by a car which fractured her pelvis and caused a condition known as megacolon. Megacolon is a state of permanently increased diameter of the large bowel. This change in intestinal structure leads to abnormal function, including reduced colonic motility and chronic constipation. Fecal retention in Alice's colon causes dilation of the colon and can somewhat impair her ability to poop. We have been able to get her much better health-wise and with medication and care Alice should be able to lead a healthy long life. She currently receives a daily stool softener and Cisapride, a medication that increases the motility in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Currently Alice is not house broken and does not have normal stools. They are often watery and grey and come out a little bit at a time. We do not have a central location to see our dogs.  Meeting any dog is by appointment ONLY currently. Appointments can be set up to meet any dog in San Diego. Currently we are unable to do any out-of-state adoptions. If you are interested in a particular dog please FILL OUT an Adoption Application at our website @ and we can schedule you for an appointment to meet with a particular dog if it is available. We do require an application if you are interested in adoption.  If you are interested in potentially adopting please fill out an application at Your application will be reviewed and you will be placed on a waiting list for the dog(s).

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
