The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Alfie has a lot going for him: charm, charisma, good looks and warm brown eyes that will melt your heart. He doesn't have a family to call his own, though, so this 8 1/2 year old Shetland Sheepdog/Terrier mix waits patiently for someone who will cherish all he has to offer. When you visit Alfie, he's apt to roll over on your lap, inviting a belly rub. Extremely affectionate, Alfie will keep you company on the couch and will likely bond quickly with his new family.
A senior dog like Alfie is a great option for a lot of people. Senior dogs have personalities that are much more established than a puppy's; seniors are often housetrained and sometimes know cues like "sit," "down" and "come." Best of all, many seniors, like Aflie, don't have crazy puppy energy and prefer strolls around the block to running 5 miles at dawn! Although he's 8 1/2, Alfie is in great health and looks forward to spending many years taking fun walks, playing with squeaky toys and watching movies with you!
