THIS is Alfie, a lovely tan Staffie who is 'really fed up' in kennels and is desperate for a home or temporary foster home.

The two-year-old dog, who is in the care of RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch through no fault of his own, is described as good natured, friendly and affectionate.

Geraldine Haynes, branch trustee, said: "Alfie is hoping to find a loving home to call his own soon, as he is getting really fed up in kennels.

"He has already had some training, knows sit and gives a paw.

"Alfie enjoys his walks and is quite good on the lead.

"He loves company and will be a loving, loyal companion. He is in good condition, fit and healthy."

Alfie is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and will be rehomed with six weeks' free pet insurance.

Please call Geraldine on 01886 822083 if you feel you could offer Alfie the loving home he deserves.
