Hi, I'm Alfie

I am a cheeky and loving boy but I have demanding training needs which will be ongoing in my new home. We are accepting interest in Alfie again through no fault of his own.

Alfie’s story

Alfie is a 2 year old Shar Pei crossbreed with heaps of personality, energy and love that needs owners that can understand his needs, harness his potential and keep up with his need for adventure!

This boy has so much potential but needs more than just a loving home and a daily walk to bring out the best in him. Alfie is super sharp and picks up everything we try with him super quickly making him the perfect companion for dog sports – he has tried out scentwork and canicross during his time at rain and been brilliant at both however we are confident he could turn his paw to most new skills! Alfie would love adventurous owners who have experience using positive reinforcement techniques to help dogs with challenging behaviour – we will be looking for an owner who can be enthusiastic and consistent with continuing his positive training! Alfie enjoys his walks and makes a great adventure buddy as he loves finding new places to sniff and explore – although he is still learning to walk without pulling he is coming on brilliantly!

Alfie struggles with handling and restraint so is being slowly desensitized to this – he will require several meets here at the centre so his new family can get to know him and build a trusting relationship with him before going home. His new owners will need to be willing to embrace Alfie’s personality, give him the freedom to make choices and advocate for him in situations he finds worrying. We would love for his new owners to be happy to take the advice of a behaviourist on working with these issues and helping him to settle in. It is essential that Alfie’s new household is as calm and quiet as possible with no children or other pets as he is learning to relax and enjoy his downtime. 

Alfie has tonnes of personality and is so much fun to be around however he has a sensitive side and will need patient and understanding owners. While Alfie is not for the faint of heart, for the right home he really will be the perfect soulmate to share your life with. If you have the patience and the lifestyle to help Alfie become the amazing dog we know he has the potential to be then please get in touch to discuss him and his training needs in more detail!
