Since volunteering at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue for two years now, I’ve met many miniature poodle boys. Besides being typical boys, they all have shared that wonderful sweet spirit of loving independence mixed with the need to snuggle. Alfred is no different.
Alfred is a sweet and easy-going dog. He is very social and gets along with people, pups, and even cats! This little guy loves going for walks and adores tennis balls. Alfred just wants to find a special someone that he can shower with affection. Submit an application for Alfred today!
We think Alfred is around 11 years young and weighs about 19 pounds.

Check out what Alfred’s foster has to say about him:
Alfred is incredibly loving & sweet. He loves snuggling & giving kisses & is the perfect lap dog. His energy is pretty low & he would rather be carried than walk. He spends most of the day resting. He does love a good squeak toy though. He enjoys snuggling with our other dogs but doesn’t pay them much attention otherwise. Alfred is 100% house trained. He waits until you carry him outside & then goes right away. He hasn’t had a single accident while with us. Alfred loves sleeping next to his humans. He loooves to eat & is always happy to snack on green beans. He is adorable with a squeak toy & has slowly been claiming all of our 65 lb dog’s toys as his own. His favorite places to nap in order would be 1) Human bed 2) Couch 3) dog bed. He is perfect!
Alfred is poodle perfection: This gentle, lovely fellow has made a poodle lover out of me! Alfred isn’t just an adorable face and soft coat, he’s highly skilled: he has an advanced degree in lap dog studies, with a minor in cuddling and giving kisses.
Alfred’s sight is impaired by cataracts, but that doesn’t stop him from playing with squeaky toys (his faves, along with tennis balls) and finding his favorite snuggle buddies (human or canine). Once he senses you’re in the room he’ll head your way or give a soft bark to let you know he’s there and ready for pets.
Alfred is diabetic, but is the easiest diabetic dog I’ve cared for. He’ll happily eat anything, even prescription food and, as his fosters report, green beans as snacks, and receives his insulin shots with no fuss. Plus, his foster parents report he’s housetrained.
Alfred is currently in a foster home and while I’m happy for him, I definitely miss seeing him at Muttville HQ. I can’t wait for him to find his forever home!
