Alfie came to Beast Barracks after reportedly snapping at someone in his previous foster home; while Alfie was here he very keen to get to food and treats (pretty much every new dog is) but never snapped and wan't aggressive in any way.
Alfie had a very overshot jaw, but our vet confirmed that it was not giving him any problems. He also only had one descended testicle, so neutering was going to be a bit more complex; to cap it all, two other BGP greyhounds with only one testicle had recently died in theatre at other vets, so Kerry was understandably nervous about having Alfie done; he was fine (our vet is just a bit fab).
We did have someone very keen to give Alfie a home but, due to low fencing and farm animals, it wasn't to be. However, sometimes things don't happen for a reason. Dennis, another BGP dog, was proving a bit much for his foster home and we were asked to take him. It was decided that Alfie and Dennis would do a straight foster home swap; as it turned out, both had found their forever homes.
Alfie died on 20 June 2018; when X-rays showed he had bone cancer his mum felt it was best to let him go.
