This months Dogs with Jobs takes a turn for the glamorous…
Meet Alfie, the charismatic, half patched Dalmatian and hear about his busy working life as a highly sought after model and actor.
Blessed with a muscular physique and rakish good looks, thanks to his unique face patch markings, Alfie has starred in rap videos, TV programmes and is much sought after as a model by household names such as Boden and furniture manufacturer, made.com.
When you look this good, does anything else matter? Well… Alfie’s work requires a performance ethic with first class obedience and exceptional steadiness – all of which come in handy on a fashion shoot.
Owner Jan Kiley explains how his career took off and what’s next for this handsome fellow.
It’s not just fashion and stardust, though… Alfie is also an Ambassadog for the charity Dogs for Autism, which trains assistance dogs for autistic people. Jan works as operations director of the charity, and we’ll be hearing more about its work, and meeting one of its assistance dogs in the next couple of months on Dogs with Jobs.
