Other Comments: Alfie is a super big KC registered Springer, well loved by his foster family who will be sad to see him go. Alfie has had very little free play or walks during his 9 years spending most of his time at home. He is a lovely big Springer that ‘talks’ a bit but this is all completely harmless as he loves fuss and attention. He’s just found what fun he can have playing with a ball and his foster family have really helped him to enjoy his new life, he even ignores their chickens! Alfie would prefer living as an only dog, he loves people company more. Alfies new owner will have to accept that he ’talks’, he has done this all his life and although this can sound intimidating he has never been aggressive, he’s a smart Springer that is picking up new commands in his foster home. His recall is hit and miss at the moment purely because he just loves to run after never being allowed off a lead so someone with a large secure garden or secure field would be perfect for Alfie, has led a very sheltered life and we are amazed that he has coped so well with the changes he’s been through since coming in to our care.
