Puppy “Alfie” - was New - his forever home

Introducing “Alfie”

Alfie was surrendered to Conciencia Animal Granada along with his siblings: Sansa, Bloom and Yaris after the owner had tried to dump them.  They were 3 weeks old mastiffs or mastiff mix so they will be large dogs.  The others have all found their forever homes but Alfie is going to need someone special.

Alfie has a deformed front left leg - he is a cheerful and happy puppy but he is going to need a special home that will understand his needs and be able to support his ongoing medical care.  He will need an operation to allow him to have a prosthetic leg and several prosthesis as he grows.

Now 2 month olds, he is in temporary foster care in Alicante but only able to stay there for max 2 weeks.  The rescue are seeking more foster care until he can travel to his forever home.

About His Forever Home
Alfie has found a potential forever home!!!

Alfie’s forever home is an 8 acre small holding in Brittany, France.  He will live indoors as a member of the family with his new Mum and Dad.  New’s Mum has been rescuing and rehabilitating dog since 1982 some with special needs so has all the skills and experience to give him a full life despite his disability.

Alfie will have 2 rescue brothers - a Spanish Mastin, 17 months old, who was rescued from Leon in northern Spain who incidentally was born to a 3 legged mum and a 6 year old Malinois who spent 3 and half years on a chain in Normandy.  Outside he will have lots of friends for him including the goats and horses.  

He will lead a safe, secure and happy life with any ongoing medical care for his leg.  

What Alfie needs and how you can support?

Firstly, New needs help to get to his forever home - he needs vaccinations, neutering, food during his foster care and transport costs - all in all about £1000.  Then going forward support for future care for his leg.

His new family will be covering much of the costs themselves throughout his life but need a helping hand to get Alfie off to the start he deserves.
