“Meet Alfie… this sad eyed boy arrived with us late last night and spent his first night on comfy bedding,” Oakwood Dog Rescue said. “This morning he doesn’t want to move from his cosy spot!

Posting a couple more pictures on Facebook later on Sunday, Oakwood Dog Rescue added: “Alfie’s first ever experience of a soft and cozy dog bed.

“Just five days ago, Alfie laid on concrete for all his life never knowing comfort.

“Despite the craziness of the shift, we took a second to pause and enjoy this moment and we hope you do too.

“Alfie is available for adoption and all this info is on our website.”

Oakwood Dog Rescue told Hull Live Alfie has been a “gentle giant” since arriving with them.

“Alfie is around five years old in his passport but we think he’s probably a bit older,” a spokeswoman for the charity said.

“He hasn’t really done much since he arrived except sunbath all day long and thoroughly enjoy his first ever big comfy bed that he received last night.

“He was so content that he fell into the deepest sleep. He has been a gentle giant since arriving.”

Oakwood Dog Rescue’s added: “Alfie was trialled with dogs last [Monday] night and was interested in saying hello but cannot keep up with the young dogs.

“We’d be looking for a home with a calm female med-large size. Potentially and older dog with similar energy levels.”
