This time last year we were driving home from RSPCA Craven with a very timid Alfie in the back. When we first brought him home he was so nervous, very scared of sudden movements and even ran-away from slow-moving tennis balls.

Today, it feels like Alfie has always been part of the family, he feels and acts very at home now and even chases sticks! It’s been an unbelievably awesome year and we’re looking forward to sharing many more with our favourite pal!

Here’s some of the highlights from his first year…

Alfie has fallen in love with the Yorkshire landscape and moorlands

He also discovered a love for hiding in long grass

He can be remarkably patient!

And after a hard day’s work, he loves to curl up on his favourite sofa and watch TV
