Hi, my name is Altuve! I was born in the foster program of HSSET during Hurricane Harvey when my mother had to have an emergency C-section due to the stress the storm had caused her. I am lucky to be alive! My foster family describes me as a lap-loving dog who enjoys cuddles and kisses. I have been raised around other dogs and cats of a variety of different ages and sizes. I am now at HSSET so that I can get more exposure and find my fur-ever family! If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out an adoption application and come visit me at HSSET today!
