As told by Deb, Alfred's mom:
I always wanted a dog, but the timing and circumstances never really worked out. Then, in February 2013, just when I was looking to move to a dog-friendly apartment, City Dogs Rescue pulled Logan/Sampson from Granville County, NC. The minute I saw his photos, something clicked, and I knew he was the one.
Boots, Tess and I welcomed Alfred into the family on February 22, 2013. A beagle and an Australian cattle dog came together to produce my unique boy, which probably explains his need to act as referee at the dog park.
Alfred is a big hit in the neighborhood and everyone loves him. Some of his canine pals include CDR alumna Hanna, his mini-me Ollie, and his wrestling buddy Payton. While he enjoys the company of dogs, he prefers hanging out with with his human friends Mary, Anna, Alisa, Keiko Jean-Charles, and Dan.
Alfred is not a big fan of water – he hates the rain and the snow, and has been known to refuse to go on a walk to avoid getting caught in the rain. Nonetheless he is always happy oblige his mama’s obsession with taking photos, even if it entails wading into elbow deep water! In the summer, Alfred took a trip to Assateague Island, where he had a lovely time rolling around on the beach… and no, he did not take a dip in the sea!
On days when the weather is good, Alfred and I love hiking in Rock Creek Park… sometimes chasing squirrels and deer, most often running up the hillside, chasing the water, and rolling on the beach.
Life is perfect with my Alfredo, and I couldn’t have asked for a better companion.
