Alfie is a 6 year old male English Springer Spaniel. Alfie is a lovely looking chap who is looking for a new home as his owners were unable to meet his needs. He would like active owners who are around for most of the day and older children who will enjoy playing football with him in the garden. He is extremely well behaved in the house and would seem to have had a lot of initial training that he adheres to and is very obedient. Although he will chew toys he hasn’t chewed any furniture, rugs or clothes so adopters might think of long lasting Kongs or similar. He is housetrained, won’t get on a bed or chair unless invited, doesn’t beg at table – in the house he is absolutely perfect.
New situations where there are lots of people do make Alfie nervous however he accepts the experiences that he is now having and tolerates it well. He can be nervous meeting new people but there is no aggression and he is imprving daily.
In true spaniel style Alfie finds every boggy bit, puddle and stream like a magnet. He is is fine in a bath with a shower hose on him. He ignored all the other dogs and was only interested in ball chasing and running like the wind. He will recall to his name but at distance a whistle will attract him or if all else fails, producing another ball.
With a little work in understanding hands Alfie will make a wonderful companion. He has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and is currently on foster in Grays Essex.
