My name is Alfie. I am an eight year old black greyhound who has been in a home since December 2010. I wasn’t a very good racer so after just 12 races it was time for me to look for a home. Within two months I was chosen by a lovely family. Then after five and a half splendid years in a home of my own, my owners became ill and couldn’t look after me anymore, so I was returned to kennels at the end of may amidst much heartbreak.
I am well looked after here at Dillymore – I have a comfy bed, plenty of food and I can play in the paddocks everyday, but I don’t feel like playing because after so long in a home all I want is is a human of my own. I suppose I am a bit depressed without my own people to look after me. The people here give me as much love and attention as they can, but it’s not the same and I crave more love.
I am a good boy, a very faithful greyhound and I know how to behave in a home. I am doing my best to stay positive but it is hard sometimes. My greatest wish is that I find some special humans soon.
Thanks for reading my story, please share it with anybody you think might be able to help.
