ALFIE HAD A WEEKEND FOSTER IN FEBRUARY 2018 WITH LAURA F. THIS IS WHAT LAURA SAID ABOUT ALFIE:
Alfie enjoyed a weekend foster with my grey Rena. She is a confident girl and clever Alfie took his cues from her which made him feel secure. He had a busy weekend and had a lovely day walking with Surrey Sighthound Walking Group friends at Esher Common (I told him it would be worth getting up for).
He travels well in the car and was clean in the house. He’s a lovely boy and a joy to have around. Alfie is a little shy at times but blossoms into a brighter, braver boy away from the kennels. He would suit a home where there is already a dog, though not necessarily a greyhound as he is good with other breeds. His confidence will grow with patience and reassurance.
He absolutely loves people, he gives the best cuddles and his tail never stops wagging. He was always impossibly pleased to be with you and his tail wagged more in 3 days than Rena’s has in 2 years. It is clear that he will bond strongly with his Mum and/or Dad when they find him. I loved all the tail wagging and sniffing and cuddles. He is a real darling who loves fish fingers!
ALFIE WENT TO PAINSHILL PARK WITH CLÍONA B. ON NOVEMBER 18th 2017. THIS IS WHAT CLÍ SAID ABOUT ALFIE:
‘Alfie has the most beautiful eyes and is a gentle soulful boy who loves the quiet life. I brought him to Painshill Park to see what he was like away from the kennels. Everything was new for Alfie, so he was a little anxious, but received lots of reassurance and he drew some confidence from the other hounds. He was a little nervous in the car, but he might improve in the company of another hound.
He is not fond of loud noises and is uncomfortable going up and down steps but improvement will come with a few more visits. He met a spaniel and a poodle X and would rather completely avoid than encounter them.
A sweet boy, Alfie is a creature of habit who likes his routine and is very easy to look after in the kennels. He would prefer to be in a home where there is already a hound in residence to show him the ropes.’
