Hi, my name is Alfie and I need someone special to love me. I'm an 8-yr-old Mini Eskie. My previous parents got divorced, then they dropped me off at this place and never came back for me. I wonder what happened to them?
I tend to be cautious when meeting new people. It's best if they just ignore me for a little bit until I decide that I want to get to know them. I'm pretty good in public, still cautious. I've had some recent outings walking around town and at several pet stores. Several people cautiously came up to me, let me sniff their hands and pet me. I was ok wth that. At home I'm more protective so someone coming to the home needs to give me some time to warm up.
I enjoy going for walks and pretty much know how to walk on a leash without pulling. I also enjoy going for car rides and like sitting in the passenger seat.
I get along with most other dogs and cats. I tend to bond to one main person in the household. When that happens, I am like velcro and love to stick around that person. I enjoy cudlling on the couch, although I will get off the couch if you want it back. Just say the word 'off'.
One thing my foster mom has learned about me is that I love to lay on the back of the coach while she is laying down watching TV that is the one thing I can do with her that my other foster brothers and sisters cant. It is our special thing and I LOVE IT. I am also pretty good with older kids like teenagers because they dont really care to pay attention to me but an occasional pet.
I have learned to go into my crate without having to be picked up however a little treat helps out. I would do best in a home with a firm owner who knows how to be the boss.
Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state. If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers.There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
