03/10/2012 17;30pm after a long drive to where Alfie was being kept myself my sister inlaw and my 4yr old daughter pulled up at an adress filled with excitment. today was my daughters birthday and Alfie was a suprise . She had no idea .
we were greeted at the drive gates by the owner and showed into his home .
my excitment soon dissolved into a dread . as we walked through the hallway it smelt very strong of smoke and i could hear alot of people in the next room.
we walked into the room and the haze of smoke stale and new hit us straight away . daughter started to cough . i wanted to get out ASAP.
i was about to make up some excuse when someone called BARNEY COME HERE BOY
as i turned to see there he was Barney who is now called Alfie by the way.
my heart sank when i saw him he was soo excited to see us especially my daughter but he was not in a good way at all..
his coat was a nicotine yellow he had a dirty face his eyes were gunky and he hadnt been cleaned by the looks ever after toileting.
They were very rough with him he was only 16wks still a baby and he seemed to cower if they got near him.
Then something happened which i will neever forget made me decide there and then he had to come home with me ...
He was excited of course and we were making a fuss of him and he was nipping a little bit playfully. then one of the owners scooped him up and got a little tub of vicks vapour rub from the table. next she got a large lump of it on her thumb and rammed it into the poor babys mouth making him cry and cough he was in agony . i pushed forward and took him off her ii said im going heres ur money and i took hold of my daughters hand and walked straight out with him tucked into my coat. and that was Alfies first day of the rest of his life .
