Pooch is after love

Alfie Rescue Me
Alfie Rescue Me

THE star of this week’s Rescue Me campaign is an inquisitive fellow by the name of Alfie.

He is a six-year-old saluki crossbreed and he is currently at Derby’s RSPCA shelter for the second time.

Not long ago staff at the centre thought they had found him a home.

But sadly, due to a bereavement suffered by his new owners, he had to be taken back in by the animal charity.

According to Karen Carter, who is communities manager at the centre, Alfie is a calm dog and is very inquisitive.

She said: “It must be the long nose!”

To arrange to visit Alfie and see if he is the pooch for you, give the RSPCA in Derby a call on 01332 344620.

Alternatively, make him a happy chap and pay him a visit at the kennels on Abbey Street.
