Inspired by a cute dog called Alfie!
This entire Etsy store was inspired by a dog called Alfie. Found by a roadside in Florida, USA. Alfie was a rescue dog whose new owners brought him to the UK when he was still a little puppy. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances they had to return to the States shortly after arriving here but were unable to take him back with them. A new owner was sought and he was lucky enough to find himself placed with a loving family in Wandsworth.
The owner couldn’t bear to leave him in kennels when he left the country, so he looked for a loving home each time he was away. We have been that loving family a number of times over the last 3 years and we loved each and every visit from Alfie.
I had to find a way to remember the dog when he wasn’t there. I wanted a picture that showed his unique character, personality and wonderful face. Searching the internet I couldn’t find anything that matched my requirements, hence I made it myself. That was the start of PurfectPawtrait.
