ALFIE is a lovely two-year-old tan Staffie cross in the care of RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch through no fault of his own.

He is described as a good natured, friendly and affectionate dog who really needs a new home.

Geraldine Haynes, branch trustee, said: "Alfie is hoping to find a loving home to call his own soon, as he is getting rather stressed in kennels. He has already had some training, knows sit and gives a paw.

"Alfie enjoys his walks and is quite good on the lead. He loves company and will be a loving, loyal companion.

"He is in good condition, fit and healthy."

Alfie is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and will be rehomed with six weeks' free pet insurance.

Please call Geraldine on 01886 822083 if you feel you could offer Alfie the loving home he deserves.

The centre in Holdings Lane, Broomhall, Kempsey, Worcester WR5 3FP is open every day from 11am until 4pm (except Wednesdays) to meet the cats and rabbits. Dogs are not on site and continue to be boarded at private kennels.
