ALFIE HAS A SWEET, GENTLE NATURE
Delicate Alfie is 1-year-old Yorkie mix and weighs 6 lbs. So timid and shy when he first arrived, he has made huge strides in his confidence level and trust of humans. Still a bit nervous with new people and circumstances but his basic nature is easy-going and he so badly wants to please. His tail is always wagging.
Alfie is full of energy, he loves to play with his foster mates but he equally loves to curl up on the couch with one of them. Alfie loves to chew having lived outdoors in the country with the pack of 13, deprived of socialization with humans. More importantly deprived of stimulation, many became chewers—of wood and plants and garbage… He will need a hefty supply of chew toys.
Alfie has begun using a pee pad most of the time, but will need some more work on housetraining. He is just starting to get used to a harness and leash at his foster home in preparation for outside walks.
Harbouring many of the characteristics of a puppy mill dog, Alfie could be a flight risk and needs an experienced (with fearful dogs) and patient family who will allow him the time it will take to become more confident.
Alfie is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
FIRM REQUIREMENTS: Experience with timid dogs. No condos or apartments, children 14+, a securely fenced yard, swimming pools only if fenced separately, someone home a good part of the day. Alfie must be adopted together with another small dog or more in the home. A cat OK if used to dogs.
