Alfie's Story...
Alfie is a lovely, healthy, happy, funny, very sweet boy who wants nothing more than to find a home with people to love and who can love him. Alfie has very limited vision and probably can’t see more than light/dark/shadows…although sometimes his foster family thinks that’s impossible since he doesn’t act like he has any limitations. Alfie’s foster family didn’t have any experience with a dog like this but they say that he’s been very easy! Alfie has probably been like this for most of his life so he just acts like a really good dog!
When Alfie came to New Hope, it was evident that he had never been on a walk. Now, he can’t wait to go for walks, no matter what the weather is like, and is trying very hard to learn his manners on the leash because he’s rather we just all run! It’s amazing!
Alfie has come a long way in a very short time! He is a very quick learner and has mastered “sit” even when is waiting for his food. Alfie always takes his treats very gently and loves to learn. He can shake a paw, beg, lay down (that’s new) and he’s working very hard to “stay”, even though his whole body wags! Alfie LOVES to cuddle, especially if there’s a tummy rub in thrown in! He loves to play fetch and we are working on the “give” when he brings the toys back…that’s taking a little work but it’s coming! But he does have great recall and will almost always come when he is told to.
Alfie is very good in the house, he is fully house-trained and we have no problem leaving him alone. Alfie loves his dog bed and will often go to bed if his foster family stays up too late for him. Alfie gets along very well with his older Jack Russell Terrier foster brother and has even convinced his foster brother to share the toys and snuggle once in a while. Alfie would do very well with a home that already has a dog.
Alfie has been around children from the age of 5 and up. He’s a very gentle, patient boy. The only thing that Alfie can’t do is stop wagging his tail; it hasn’t stopped since he’s been rescued!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alfie, a Saskatoon Pomeranian/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Saskatoon, or seeking a Pomeranian/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Saskatoon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Saskatoon already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Saskatoon breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pomeranian/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Pomeranian/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Saskatoon paves the way for another one to be saved.
