Alfie is an affectionate young lad who loves being around people & enjoys a cuddle on the sofa! He spends a lot of his time in the office supplying much needed cuddles to the staff.

A calm & quiet home is important for Alfie as he can be easily overwhelmed. For this reason we wont be rehoming with young children.

In his previous home Alfie could be left for a couple of hours but his new owner will need to be at home most of the time initially to help him settle in to a new routine.

Alfie could potentially live with a suitably matched dog but this would depend on meetings here at Oak Tree.

A home with a decent sized secure outdoor area is essential so Alfie has somewhere to enjoy time off lead.


Alfie is currently in a foster home & is loving every minute. He enjoys going for walks throughout the day then cuddles up on the sofa in the evening. Alfie has been left for around 3.5hrs on one occasion and coped well. Alfie's fosterers have noticed he prefers to toilet in the garden rather than on walks so he will need a secure garden in his new home.

On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our dogs looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
