Rescue dog in England has lived in five different homes

A loveable puppy in the UK is in desperate need of a home and life-saving surgery, the Daily Mail reports.

Alfie, a 20-week-old greyhound and Labrador mix, has been through five homes in just as many months.

"He turned up totally bewildered and was very needy," Chris Johns, co-founder of the Happy Endings Rescue Sanctuary in Hailsham, East Sussex, told the news outlet. "He didn't seem to have an appetite and only ate a very tiny amount, often being sick, so we asked the vet to run some extra tests on him."

It was then that veterinarians discovered that Alfie had a liver shunt, a fatal disease where toxins fail to be eliminated through the body. The surgery to correct the problem is extremely costly.

"It would be really good to give him a chance. Without the operation things are very bleak for him," Terry Kemp, a veterinary nurse and co-founder of the animal sanctuary, told the news outlet.

According to the Humane Society of the United States, between 3 and 4 million pets are euthanized in shelters every year.
