Pet of the Week: Could you give affectionate Alfie who loves to cuddle his forever home?
Meet Alfie, the eight-year-old springer spaniel labrador cross who is currently looking for his forever family at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.
Alfie is the first Pet of the Week to be featured on the Evening News website in our new series, which will aim to get more loveable pets out of temporary accomodation and settled into their new lives in Edinburgh and around the Lothians.
The medium-sized male is very energetic and is constantly on the go.
He needs an active home where he can get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation.
He loves food as well and is always happy to spend time munching on a frozen stuffed Kong or enjoying something tasty on a lick mat.
He is an affectionate boy who loves a cuddle and is sure to make a great companion.
He can be very excitable which can lead to him being rather vocal at times, so he is looking for a patient owner who can work on his training.
Alfie would like an adult only home without children, and will need a few visits before going home with his new owner.
