Aladdin is the protagonist of the 1992 Disney animated feature film of the same name. Also known as the "diamond in the rough", Aladdin was born a street rat and lived most of his youth in poverty, though he maintained a warm heart and selfless nature in spite of his struggles.
Aladdin was confiscated by animal control for being kept outside in the frigid cold without adequate shelter. He was with another dog, Jasmine, and both of them were neglected and malnourished. They are now enjoying life at MPR shelter and soaking as much love as they can.

Aladdin is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and all around healthy. He was thin when he first arrived to us, but has gained weight already and is quickly blossoming into a real little Casanova.
Before coming to the shelter, Aladdin spent time in a small home with a young adult with mild intellectual disabilities. Al was a well-behaved boy, easy and eager to please. He was moved into our shelter recently and has been adapting like a champ.
Aladdin didn't know much when he arrived in our program and he enjoys learning about the world now. He is not very reactive of other dogs and actually shows positive signs that he could live with a compatible girlfriend. Aladdin is housebroken and crate-trained.
There's no extremes with this little guy. He's very middle-of-the-road when it comes to his level of energy and his general demeanor. He has a nice, open personality, great disposition and is eager to learn. Aladdin is easy to handle, easy to please and totally uncomplicated. This beautiful golden boy has been very grateful for his rescue and so happy to enjoy the good life.
Behavior with people:
While Aladdin is a sweetie with his loved-ones, he does have a protective nature. He should make a very loyal companion to his family but will need a few minutes to warm up to strangers. Once he knows you're a friend and not a foe, he definitely turns up the charm and will literally shower you with love.
Behavior with children:
Aladdin met children since being with us and we don't foresee any problems with him and kids. Like a typical happy Pit Bull, he can jump up a little when greeting his loved-ones but nothing that can't be corrected with leadership and structure. He's not terrible pushy about it. He just needs to learn how to be happy.
For the most part Aladdin is comfortable around children and eager to interact with them without overwhelming the kids. Al is a little sensitive but sweet and very eager to love and be loved. Overall our golden prince behaves appropriately around kids and should make a a great family companion. That said, please keep in mind that he could become protective of his kids. Some parents might appreciate this behavior while others might prefer a dog who welcomes all strangers with opened paws.
Behavior with other dogs:
Al was briefly introduced to a compatible female and did well. We think this Romeo could do well with a nice female companion or as an only pet. He's easy to please.
Behavior with other animals:
Aladdin has been cat tested and seems a little too interested in them. We believe that he would do best in a home without cats.
Little training but he seems naturally well-behaved and easy. He has no accident in his kennel and keeps it neat. Volunteers are working on basic commands.
Aladdin looks like a little prince and has the inner charm too. He looks better in person than on his pictures, btw. He has a gorgeous golden coat with light silver reflects. He's not a fan of the camera though, and doesn't understand why our volunteer is not petting him or playing instead of looking at him through her phone, lol. Aladdin really has a lot to offer. If you are looking for a medium size, low maintenance, easy to handle, yet sweet, loyal and loving companion, Aladdin will surely meet your needs.
