About Alfie

Shih Tzu
5 to 7 Years


(Please note: Due to Alfie's recent rise to fame, from Thursday 16th Jan we will be taking applications only for 72 hours. Successful applicant's will be based soley on suitability of home.) Alfie is a friendly Shih Tzu with a sweet and gentle character who will make a very loyal and loving companion.

Type of home needed

Alfie is seeking a quiet and consistent lifestyle, living as the only dog, in an adult-only household without any visiting children. He prefers ladies so would need to live in a home where there is at least 1 lady present. He is looking for a home with a garden and would like to be walked in quieter areas - away from busy parks or heavy traffic. Due to some easily managed medical needs, his owners must be confident in administering medication daily, while helping Alfie to feel as calm as possible during the process.

More about me

Alfie will make an excellent companion to extra-special owners, who are willing to provide this sweet boy with the extra TLC that he requires. He will need owners who are able to make multiple visits to our centre in order to build up a friendship with him before he goes home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Alfie, who is based at Shoreham. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you can receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
