Alfie the Jack Russell
Alfie has been successfully placed in a long term foster.
Super special final home required for Alfie.
Alfie is a lively 14 year old boy who is neutered and came to us when his elderly owner could no longer keep him. Alfie is good with other dogs but would prefer a quiet retirement home to see out the rest of his days, possibly with other small elderly dog(s). He loves to play with his ball and happy to cuddle and snooze in a comfy bed. He walks well on a lead and is a joy to have around. We have consulted with his vet and he last had a full dental in 2019 so while his teeth aren’t perfect they don’t need any further treatment. Alfie has never been vaccinated and so at this age the vet believes there is nothing to gained from starting a course of injections as he is likely to have built up his own immunity. Please message us if you are local to Southport and can give this wonderful boy the final home he deserves.
