Alfie and Beth

  • Whippet X
  • Can live with children, 10 plus
  • Would like a home to go to together

Lovely Alfie and Beth are looking for a new home together. This perfect pair of whippet lurchers are around nine years old, and are brother and sister – though you’d never guess, since Alfie has a very unique look! We think this just gives him even more character, and makes him even more adorable than he already is.

Alfie and Beth are used to living in a home, and are very easy dogs to live with. They love making new friends (both human and canine), are house-trained and used to spending time at home on their own. They walk beautifully on the lead, and would be happy to live with children over the age of six – but no cats please!

Alfie and Beth are looking for a home where they will get plenty of love and attention in their older years. They are laid back and settled at home, and despite their age, they are in good health and both still enjoy a good walk! Poor Alfie is worried that people will pass him by because he’s not conventionally handsome – will you be the one to prove him wrong?
