Here's Anchorage Animal Care and Control's Adoption of the Week, courtesy of Brooke Taylor, AACCC public relations coordinator.

Here is Alfred, an adult, male, pit bull mix. Alert, focused and attentive, Alfred is active and curious, intelligent, and likes to explore, but is gentle and eager to please. Knows basic commands (including "shake"), enjoys chasing balls, going on walks and outings, and interacting with people. A fine all-around companion! Alfred can be adopted for $152, which includes his neuter deposit, MOA dog license, vaccinations, and microchip.
