Now this stunning young man is called Alfie. He will grow into a medium sized boy and he has a distinctively unusual, tri colour short, but fluffy coat.

Our extremely handsome chap Alfie, is a delightful older puppy and he is very people friendly, to him everyone is his friend!
He enjoys playing with toys happily on his own and he excels in playing with other dogs and having a good rough and tumble.. He does play a bit full on so would suit a medium to large dog if there is one in the household.
Alfie has plenty of energy, he is not a couch potato, he likes to be busy busy ! a large garden would be good for him and plenty of walks, he would absolutely excel at flyball as he is very fit and intelligent
Alfie has lived in a house so he is house trained. He is good on lead & general rules & boundaries.
This little man would make a wonderful family pet!
Please dont apply if you cannot meet his energy levels

His Best Points :
Friendly, playful, walks well on a lead, used to living indoors
 
Foster Report
Foster Report 1
Alfie is a lovely, very friendly and clever young boy who loves a good game of tug or fetch, as well as lots of treats. He knows how to sit, give his paw, spin and lie down. He loves his walks, does well walking on the lead and we’re working on his recall. He’s toilet trained and will go to the door to let you know when he needs to go out. Happy to sleep in a crate throughout the night. He does suck on his blanket to self soothe though and will rip the stuffing out of soft toys!
 
He has shown some resource guarding behaviour with a couple of items but you have to swap what he has for something of higher value, like a favourite treat. But if he has picked up something small we don’t want him to eat, we have been able to open his mouth and take it out without any problems.
Likes other dogs but not sure about cats.

He has shown that he is a wonderful, cheeky and happy big puppy who just wants someone to love him.

 Foster 2:

Alfie is a lovely dog – highly intelligent (we suspect a collie cross), cheeky playful nature and very good with people and other dogs. He is interested in everything  going on & I think would suit people who have had experience with dogs. He would make a great dog for people who want to do agility classes.

He loves being outside, going for walks & is good on the lead. He likes to be busy and enjoys playing in the garden and games like frisbee!

He is fine with our children now however he was quite nervous at first so would be best with teenage children. We would keep him if we could as he is great company, loves cuddles & always entertaining us!

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog

Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance  FREE, to be activated from the link on our website.

All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas

This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
