Meet Alfie

Poodle (Standard) & Patterdale Terrier, 5 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Alfie is...

How loving he is, always wants to be with you, preferably actually sat on you. He likes to snuggle up whenever he can. He goes mad when you come home whether you have left for 5 minutes to empty the bins or a couple of hours for shopping. He grabs a toy and runs around llke a loon. I hide his food in toys and he gets it out and lets my daughters dog Rosie eat it as well. 

The biggest challenge with Alfie is...

He is stubborn as hell - if he doesn't want to go a particular way he literally sits down like a cartoon dog. He does like the rain and mud and won't walk through mud so he has to be carried over it. He sometimes can be quite scared of nothing! Often when we are walking (same walks we have done over and over) he will act as if something is there and just stands still looking back at where we are.

The most surprising thing about owning a Poodle (Standard) & Patterdale Terrier is...

Just how loving they really are and very smart Alfie will remember how to get to someone's house after just one walking visit.

What I wish I’d known about Poodles (Standard) & Patterdale Terriers is...

How stubborn and on occasion how nervous he can be.
