Meet the ModDog: Alfie

PinterestTwitterEmailFacebooktumblr

Name: Alfie

Age: 8 months

Breed: Chihuahua/Dachshund mix

“I’ve had Alfie for just over a month and a half, but it was love at first sight for both of us!” says ModSquad Coordinator and PR Assistant Emily. “I first saw Alfie on a visit  to the shelter, with his tail between his legs, aimlessly following the other dogs around. He was by far the most scared and timid of the bunch. My heart immediately went out to him, and he seemed elated to have someone give him the love and attention he needed. I knew then that we were meant to be!”

Since his first day in the ModCloth offices, this pint-sized pup had stolen the heart of many a ModEmployee with his over-sized ears and sparkling personality. Always the social butterfly, Alfie loves being wherever the puppy party is, playing with the other ModDogs, and rough-housing with his two doggy “aunts”: Emily’s parents’ dogs Roxy and Mia!

“Alfie has grown in confidence immensely since his days at the shelter and he couldn’t be happier to join the ModDog family!” says Emily.

    Oh my bejesus! He is absolutely adorable! You should check out my two pups, they are German Shepherd/Basset Hound mix and named Fredo and Sonny. They are my love and I wish I lived closer to have a doggy date! That would be too cute.
