8 years & 9 months
Alfie is cheeky terrier who is looking for home with a single adult, with no visiting children and few adult visitors. He will also need to be the only pet in the home, preferably with no other animals living close by.
Alfie is full of character but does have several behaviour issues which we have been working on since he arrived at the shelter. He can be worried about traffic - particularly tractors, vans and lorries - so would be best suited to a quiet rural home where he would encounter minimal traffic on his daily walks. Alfie can also be reactive towards other dogs when on lead but is happy to walk alongside well mannered dogs as long as initial introductions are done sensibly.
Alfie has a history of resource guarding food, toys and his sleeping areas so is looking for a special new human who will take the time to understand how to manage this in his new home (full behaviour support will be provided). His new home must be non open plan as Alfie will need to have his own space - he may benefit from having a cosy kennel and run where he can go for a bit of peace and quiet.
Due to Covid 19 restrictions we aren’t able to invite potential adopters up to the shelter to meet our animals, instead will we match them to their new family virtually (via Zoom) and will then be able to transport them to their new home contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only consider applications from those who live within an hour of the shelter, and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions.
We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest for all of our animals, with some getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our animals their forever homes.
If you can offer Alfie the special forever home that she deserves please submit an online enquiry form with as much information as possible about yourself and your experience.
