About Alfie

8 and over


Alfie is a 11-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. To apply to adopt me please click on the "Rehoming me starts here" button below. Applications will close when a suitable match has been found. 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 owners a few times to build a relationship or if you think you could foster him whilst he looks for his forever home, please get in touch.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our West Calder Rehoming Centre in Edinburgh.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
