Meet Alfie, a 2-3 year old Husky / German Shepherd mix
Alfie came into the Centre because he was a homeless person's dog. As a result he has never had a real home before. Despite this Alfie is a lovely boy who loves the company of humans. He took part in a program run for youth offenders to give them a sense of responsibility. They have to train him to a Bronze Training Award Standard. Alfie and his young person got on so well, he had cracked the training in no time and has received the award! We don't think Alfie had ever been on a lead before he came to Millbrook, as a result he can be a bit strong. However once he is on face halti he walks really well. He can also be a bit grumpy with dogs on the lead, again possibly due to never being on a lead before. However he is lovely with them off lead and even shares his favourite toys, tennis balls with them! As a result we think he could be a 2nd dog if the right home came along. Speaking of tennis balls, he could be the next British hope for Wimbledon! He is so skilled! He will leave them and sit and wait for you to throw them too. Due to the breeds he is, he will need lots of exercise and stimulation. He will also need love and cuddles as he loves people! Alfie is a real character, and we can't wait to see him in his forever home! Alfie is fully vaccinated, castrated, microchipped and received flea treatment.
