Alfie is a 5 month old Cross-Breed puppy. Alfie came in to the rescue as he was not being looked after properly. Alfie is going to be a medium sized dog. He is a high energy dog and most definitely has some Spaniel in him! His house training is spot on, however he will do protest poo’s if he is left more than 4 hours, which is fair enough for a dog of his age. He is good with cats, as long as they are used to dogs. If they run he will chase them, but if they just wander round him he is fine! He is currently fostered with one oap cat, a kitten and a adult female.
Alfie is not good with small animals and will constantly bark at things like rabbit hutches and hamster cages! He is fab with children however due to his bouncy nature he would only be suitable to go with children over 6! He is good with other dogs, however when he first arrived he would bark and bundle small dogs, with training this has diminished, however when he went on home trial he went to a home with another dog who’s companion had recently passed away.
Alfie felt the need to protect his new friend and would be very protective out and about with other dogs on coming back in to the rescue he is now fostered with two very stable dogs, with fabulous social skills and we have seen none of this behavior.
So if there is another dog in the home it needs to be stable, well trained and have good social skills. Being a pup Alfie will need continued training and he is such a fast learner, he is very ball and treat orientated and could turn his paw to any discipline that you would want to try with him.
Alfie is fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered and up to date with all flea treatment and wormer.
