Evel has a great big smile on his handsome, open face. His eyes are a startling yellow, and they sparkle when he’s happy. His perky ears closely resemble those of a German shepherd—and yes, he will let you stroke them. His light tan hair is thick for an aspin, and very soft. He is healthy, has straight legs, a good back, and a playfully coiled tail. He is missing a few teeth, but that does little to dim the smile of this confident dog.

Evel is a six-year-old male dog who was left at PARC by his human family last November, before they emigrated. Since then, he’s been quietly on the lookout for a new human to keep company. He gets along well with the other dogs, but will not let himself be bullied. After I took him for a walk, he went back to his quarters. The other dogs crowded around him like a flock of paparazzi, but he simply held his head high and walked on.

Evel is a wonderful companion dog who likes to be close to his human alpha. He will let you hold him, hug him, and stroke him for very long periods. That’s why people, and even kids, should know how to treat him gently, but with firmness when needed. On the leash, he is light and obedient, even refraining from chasing cats—but you know he’s on the other end. After the first rush that comes with the beginning of every walk, he’ll stay alongside you, sniffing and marking anything taller than eight inches. After the walk, he’s content to sit quietly beside you as you watch the world go by. But Evel is also watchful and alert; he’s a sentinel ready to inform you of approaching life forms. He won’t threaten them; he’ll just bark a few times to give you a heads-up.

Evel is happiest when he’s with his humans. Won’t you give him a chance to take care of you, even as you take care of him?

    You certainly can! But please drop by the shelter office first and inform them of your intentions so you may be guided accordingly. Visitors are also asked to log in our visitors logbook! :) See you at the shelter! :)

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ than to comment here. Thank you very much!
