Introducing Alfie!

Post by Jm288 on Sun Jun 14 2015, 21:09

Hi all,

Just joined today as I want to be in contact with like minded people about these loving, loyal and charismatic dogs! My partner (Ben) and I rescued Alfie when he was about 5 months old. Alfie goes by many names; Prince Alfred, Dave, Bainbridge, Gitbag!
Before we were lucky enough to have him in our lives Alfie was unfortunately abandoned in a park near Bluewater, tied to a tree incredibly skinny with a broken back leg. Luckily, he was found and was fixed up by the lovely PDSA. I was sent a picture of Alfie's beautiful face and asked if we could give him a home and just couldn't say no! Alfie recovered quickly and 4 and a half years later is a wonderful (albeit a little spoilt!) member of our family.
I also joined to try and find out what other breed Alfie may be mixed with? He is mostly staffie but I think he may have some boxer too. Check out his picture and see what you think!
Look forward to your responses guys!
From
Alfie, Jodie and Ben

Hi & Welcome to the Forum from Flo and me Big Grin

Well done on the rescue and for finally giving him that loving family home. Sounds like he's really fallen on all 4 paws with you guys Smile

It's a little difficult to tell any cross from that picture, maybe you could post some more for us to tell from Wink

Hi from us too!

Good on you for rescuing him. He's certainly fallen on his paws!

There's certainly a boxerish look about his nose, isn't there.

Thanks for all the lovely welcomes. Alfie is a lucky one. He has been hard work to train and regain the trust that he won't be left again. After 4 and half years I think he has finally accepted that he isn't going anywhere! So stick at it anyone who is reading this who has just rescued!thumbs up thumbs up

Alfie loved the IOW, Stella. First time we had taken him away camping!

Thanks for the replies about his cross breed too. It is definitely his nose and his height that made me think boxer cross? I was watching the BBC programme 'Wonder of Dogs' and they were using dog DNA to see what the mixed breeds backgrounds were. That what made me think about putting it to other people to see what they thought.

I will keep posting lovely pictures of Alfie anyway as I like to show off how gorgeous he is! Hahaha. Big Grin Big Grin

Not yet, I need to sort out a photo bucket account then I can. I'll try to do this tomorrow. She is a bit taller then a pure staff but not as big as a boxer, lovely combination but then again I am biased
