Homing Requirement: Alfie needs a family who understands terriers. Alfie needs managed introductions, 'treats' to strangers inside and guided intro outside until he trusts.  Alfie needs a family without live-in children and not too many visitors. Can be left.  Can suffer skin itching with grass pollen. Not for cats or small furries.

His Story: Alfie was raised with dogs but apprehensive in first meeting.  Went into a Rescue and homed successfully with a couple until they needed to give him up when expecting their first baby. Alfie was fostered as an only dog in London but too urban a lifestyle. Alfie was fostered with other terriers but had his moments so best suited as an only dog. Now in boarding kennels near Gatwick. Alfie is neutered, vax'd and chipped.

Advert: Alfie has been loved all his life; a treasured pet indeed! Alfie is a keen learner; gained his bronze citizens award! He is a good teacher to the ways of the Fell terrier! Alfie can be left and enjoys his toys amusing himself for hours throwing in the air and chasing them or the birds that dare to fly across his garden! He would equally enjoys a companion lifestyle. Alfie is an adorable lad who approaches life with bravado, resting his head on his paws when life is more restful. Alfie has 'working type' terrier instincts so not for cats, small furries and managed around livestock.

Alfie is the Fell Terrier and that means a Terrier to his paw tips. He has a course wire short coat and sparkling eyes. Alfie is very affectionate and loves to sit on your lap. Alfie just needs the confidence of a terrier owner with an adult environment. We're not apologising for Alfie; he is your real Terrier and loved because of it! Everyone who has helped Alfie along his way are passionate about him. What a GEM!

Please visit Alfie Fell Terrier DOB 11.07 Godstone Kenns on our Forum to find out more and follow his progress.

If you are interested in re-homing please complete Our on-line Homing Questionnaire  so we can ensure our dogs are matched and will suit your circumstances/lifestyle.

Alfie has been homed to a couple living in Twickenham. Feedback from Dianna Homing section!

First day report: Bit of an unsettled first night poor boy with all the new noises and surroundings.  Lovely long walks today and plenty of cuddling.  

Great home,  he just needs time but doing really well

Looks like the little fella is making himself at home. I was e-mailed this photo to add to Alfie's thread.  :D

Alfie has been having a few issues settling in with his new lifestyle and out on his walks. We have sadly had to conclude that Alfie hasn't settled, with having almost too much going on and so many visits and visitors. We feel he was more settled in a quieter lifestyle which he felt more in control of in terms or routine etc. with less 'events' and fewer dogs around on his walks. His family wish to hold on until we find that home.

Spent the afternoon with Alfie today Beautiful Alfie





He has been nervous around dogs so adorned with Muzzle we went to meet some friends..
Collie pack first off he really wanted to play..then an older Labrador..?will you play




Whipper snapper Alfie with pointer aristocracy





And now the bitch whom I'm told doesn't like dogs to smell her!



In with the pack..pointing!



Home and relaxed


A little professional begging.
Alfie has a bronze citizens' award don't you know!


Bird watching

Then chill!

sad11
Such a very sad day to see our lovely Alfie boy go to  Gatwick kennels. After fostering him for 5 months, he skipped (and pulled) his way in giving off in reply to all the other dogs .... stating his arrival! Unlike us, we left and fell apart!!!!

He is such a handsome and fun fella but sooooooo needs doggy friends.

He has been doing well with his walker 'tethered' to a black lab rather than constantly on lead, which built his confidence unmuzzled around several other dogs. We would love to see him rehomed with an older, mature and obedient dog to show him doggy ways and find a true doggy companion to match his playful manner in a forever home.

Thanks to you all, especially Lynne & Dee

Alfie moved in to a trial adoption yesterday. His charisma was too much to resist



Alfie with her Rosie, Brian and her canine friends Guss and Jessie





Guss was so delighted to meet Alfie and insisted he stay to see if they couldn't turn into friends for life.
Just got to get used to sharing toys and food. Early days.

:D
so pleased that Alfie has a chance to make some doggie friends it what seems and ideal foster home.
Fingers crossed his charms win all over and he behaves himself, he really does have great manners and lots of charisma.
We really miss him but just look at those lovely photos, and see who bagged the bed on the patio!
Thanks again to all, especially his new family too. x

Alfie seems to be settling quite well.  He has had his ears cleaned by Sprout  Surprised which was something of a surprise for him I think.  

Lamb is still on the menu but he is getting far more relaxed about them.  

I can't upload any photos at the  moment but he has been enjoying his walks with the gang and would rather be where we are than doing his own thing which is good.

He has been out to meet my friends pack of 6 dogs which he coped with very well and we will do lots of walks with them.

BTW Alfie has settled very well at home - only the horses remain an issue.  He is sleeping through the night without a peep downstairs in the chair until 8am and then hops upstairs and into bed with the others until we all get up!    Smile

We had a trip to the vet at the end of last week as Alfie was feeling very itchy and not too well.  But I'm pleased to say he has his appetite back and is feeling much happier.

We have been doing lots of socialising with people, dogs and horses and he is coping well.  Still lots of work to do there though. Wink   He is very much enjoying the Chiltern Hills
