Jack Russell | 8 years old



Alfie is a 9-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. Due to current restrictions, I can't go to my forever home just yet, but you can contact the rehoming centre to register your interest. When restrictions ease, and if we're a suitable match, you will be able to discuss me in more detail with my carers at the centre. Thank you so much for your interest in me! Alfie does enjoy attention and interaction with his owner, although he is an independant boy who is not a lapdog. Alfie likes having his own space and can sometimes be uncomfortable being handled, he would like a home with calm owners and no children. He is a happy little man and he loves his walks! He likes to explore and have a sniff in amongst the leaves and the tall grass. Alfie would need to be the only pet in the home as he prefers the company of his family rather than other dogs.

Type of home needed

Alfie is looking for a peaceful home with an experienced owner who has owned Terriers before.He can be uncomfortable with close handling and does take time to trust you. His favourite places to walk are areas with not many other dogs around where he can enjoy exploring and the peace and quiet. Alfie would love his own garden where he can potter and play with his toys before relaxing in his cosy bed.

More about me

Alfie is a clever little man who will sit nicely and give a paw for a tasty treat! He is fully housetrained and is happy to be at home for a couple of hours on his own. Alfie would like to meet his new family a few times before going home to build a relationship. *PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT CURRENTLY REHOME TO ANYONE OUTSIDE OF SCOTLAND DUE TO TRAVEL RESTRICTOIONS*
