Gentleman Bob is a rather stunning, 8-9 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Lurcher who is in an Oldies Club foster home in Enfield, Middlesex, hoping to be offered a cosy, loving, permanent home. Bob is a very loving, people-dog and loves human company, smiling and tail wagging for any attention. He is obedient, sometimes a little selectively, but knows all his basic commands: sit, wait, down, come here, paw, lie down. Bob’s smart and learns very quickly.
Bob loves people and he is a gentle dog with food, but he can get quite boisterous when he’s excited and so wouldn’t be suitable with small children as he could knock them over. Any children in the home should be 8+ years; he would enjoy their company and is always up for playtime. Bob tends to ignore most other dogs, cats, birds, horses, cows – he just looks at them and then carries on. He does not like some dogs; he is not overly keen on small dogs and will tell them off if they get too close. He’s used to being the only pet in the home.
Bob’s favourites are people, food, walks, playtime and lots of cuddles. Not much bothers Bob, but he does not like thunder and will shake (but he was okay with a bird-scarer). Bob would like a pet-free home with active, retired people or someone working from home ideally as he loves to be with his people, especially if they have lots of time for him. A nice garden where he could have a good run around with his ball would be a plus.
Bob has been vet checked and is in excellent health. He has good eyesight, hearing and teeth. He’s in good condition with a lovely, shiny coat and is about the perfect weight of around 20kg. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and flea/worm treated.
