Alfie is one of the most adorable boys I've ever had the pleasure of meeting :) From the moment he arrived with us he found himself a spot by the chair to curl up and has been settled ever since. He sleeps soundly all night downstairs with Lex and we don't hear a murmur out of either of them until we get up in the morning. Alfie has solid house training, even with the disruption in his life we have not had one accident in the house and he paws at the door any time he needs to go out  :clap: He is so gentle when taking his food and has perfect manners around Lex and us while we are eating.

Alfie does have a heart murmur (Grade unknown as of yet) and that is why he is currently on hold while we assess his health. However it does not seem to affect him in the slightest! He is such a happy boy his tail has hardly stopped wagging since he arrived, it even wags in his sleep  :inlove: He enjoys his walks and always curls up contentedly for a nap afterwards or watches a bit of TV  ::) Alfie is such an easy boy to live with, he is so quiet around the house that I sometimes forget he is even there  :rofl:

Pics of Alfie to follow :D

Update - 10/09/12

Alfie has now been with us for a week and he is a pleasure to have in the home. He is an older chap who doesn't take any kisses or cuddles for granted and gets so excited when we show him any form of affection or even just attention! He is not a needy dog and happily takes himself off for a wander around the house or a nap, and a short walk around the block each day and he sleeps for hours  :rofl: I sometimes think he would be happier without one as he tends to look at me like.. Do we have to??  :pathead: although some weight loss will help with his energy levels.

Alfie would suit a quieter household with or without another calm dog for companionship (He ignores Lex most of the time  ::) ), he doesn't mind being left on his own for a few hours and he never follows me upstairs if I disappear up there for a while. I've haven't come home to any destruction or accidents in the house and he is quiet throughout the night, although he did bark at someone knocking the door earlier which I think he picked up from Lex  :nono:

Alfie is in need of a trip to the groomers (He is not matted just very fluffy and my attempts have failed dismally  :redface: ) which is being arranged and I'm sure will make him feel a lot lighter, he needs to lose a few kilos so is on a diet  :pathead: but a sweeter dog I have yet to meet  :luv: and he will make someone a very loving companion.





Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Alfie.
Approved applications will be home checked.  

Details of our adoption procedures and adoption application form are http://www.fourpawsanimalrescue.org.uk/adoption_procedures.html

 :luv: We had the pleasure of this little lads company for a couple of hours on Thursday. He walked in and fitted in with the other residents without any fuss at all.  :hug: He is a smashing little chap and will fit in anywhere.  :wave: He still has a little way to go health wise and fur wise. Carrie is tearing her hair out trying to untangle Alfie :rofl1: But he is coming on leaps and bounds
