health Health Alf has had treatment for bad ears which are now looking good, he will need to stay on a raw diet which is yeast free as the yeast causes his ears to flare up

 

Other Comments: Alf is a lovely boy, he is very unsure of what’s going on but is settling well in foster care, he had a chronic ear infection but this is now under control. Alf grumbles, but always seems to be sorry for doing it so we’re not sure why, apparently he’s been like it all his life, he can be a very happy and loving dog but it’s usually on his terms until he gets to know you. We are looking for an experienced owner who won’t crowd or force Alf in to doing things he’s not happy with, he’s brilliant with other dogs and really will be a great companion.
