Hi there, I’m Alfalfa, and I make every dish a little more nutritious and a little more fun!

Delicate and for those with a discerning palate, I’m sure to catch the eye of everyone I meet with my beautifully speckled black and white coat. But I’m more than a just a pretty girl, and the right home will help me discover just how much magic I have inside of me.

When the Greyhound Rescue matchmakers asked me what my ideal home looked like, they thought it sounded like a dreamy holiday – a place to relax, a place to be loved, a place where I have the time to find myself and explore this big new world at my own pace. Like everyone, we all just need a little space to find our inner peace, and I’m no different. I love other polite canine friends, because I really value my manners, and I’m learning new ones every day!

A note from Alfalfa’s foster family

Alfalfa is doing great in foster care! She is beautiful and absolutely loves pats, but also likes chilling in her own space.

Alfalfa’s favourite things are toilet rolls filled with peanut butter and kibble/treats, pats, squeaky toys, belly rubs!

Alfalfa is doing great at home, she is super chill and usually sleeps all day, although she does have bursts of energy and loves a zoomie in the morning. She will sometimes forget how big she is and try to sit on you!

Alfalfa enjoys her walks and walks really well on a lead. She has a corn on her foot which means shorter walks are best. She is fine going to cafes and parks, but still has to master jumping into the car.

She is fine being left alone at home, although if you are home, she likes to be near you and ask for plenty of attention!

She’s learning her name and some basic training cues. She seems fine with kids, although can get a bit excited while playing sometimes, so encouraging calm behaviour is important. She’s learning about meeting other dogs, but needs a bit more practice to be fully confident.

If you think you’d be interested in meeting me, fill out an application form and the volunteers at Greyhound Rescue will get on the case. Our matchmakers go to greyt lengths to match each hound with the right family to make sure everyone’s happy, and you’ll become part of a wonderful rescue community with lots of support along the way.
