Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Merial – 5 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Merial needs a secure garden, 6′ panel fencing without stepping stones. Merial especially need heightened awareness around front door management and back gate usage as this is the reason she has lost her 2 previous homes, and puts herself at risk going ‘native’. Merial grew up and is proven with young children but better for visiting children to avoid exit escapes. Only pet status but meets dogs well outside. Merial was found stray and unclaimed but alert dog warden tracked her history via her chip. Merial is neutered and under going vaccination. We came forwards to save her life, arriving 6th December.

Merial is currently in boarding kennels near Gatwick. Merial will captivate and deserves a responsible family! Merial has quite high energy and so she leads on her walks and is a go getter; trend setter! Happy around other dogs and really enjoys her walks. her original family put a lot of training into her but found her ready to slip through the front door which made life really difficult with 4 children to look after also.

Merial was always a joy around the children. Merial travels well in a travel crate. Merial is a blue merle with white Staffordshire Bull Terrier in her 5th year. Busy little lady who is great with her family and grew up alongside a family with 4 young children. Merial if inadvertently she gets out of the house or off lead she can be over exuberant in her dog meetings, however on lead extender meets dogs really well. Her family will committed to her safety and have awareness she is to be an only pet, without visiting pets and retention on secure lead with encounters carefully managed. Then she is little Miss perfect!

Lex – 10 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Lex is a 10 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier that came into us in his 11th hour. We received a call asking if we could take Lex and a Jack Russell called Patch as his elderly owner had been taken into a residential home and no family members were in a position to be able to take them on. The relatives had them booked in at the vets for 5pm to be put to sleep when we received a call at 4.30PM from another organisation who asked if we could help. We didn’t have the room but equally couldn’t let these two die either, so agreed to taken them in and worry about how to accommodate later.


We did have to split them up into two foster homes as neither foster had space for both but they managed really well without each other due to having friends in the foster homes. Lex’s Jack Russell friend Patch was successfully re-homed, sadly Lex is still waiting. Lex is one big softy who adores his big bed which he’ll happily sleep in for most of the day, he loves his human company so will happily curl up next to you on the sofa for cuddles. Lex is totally unfazed by cats so could live with a dog savvy cat. Lex is great with other dogs in and outside the home, he loves a good play and turns into a 2 year old with doggie friends.

Lex will settle being the only dog too, however he can on occasions let you know he wants some company by pining whether it be by humans or his furry friends. Lex will settle quickly and can be left for a reasonable amount of time, he is non destructive, no food or toy issues, walks nicely on the lead and has great off lead recall. Lex does have arthritis in his back leg that at present is being managed by cod liver oil and regular exercise. Lex does have some quirky ways such as grumbles for a fuss then grumbles when you give it, he is a big soft lad who at his age prefers the quiet life, he’s rather like your grumpy old grandad! He is currently in foster with children aged 9+ but a home with teenage children plus would be considered but an older person would be preferred. Lex is vaccinated, microchipped, flea treated, wormed and neutered, he is in Hockley, Essex in a foster home.


Chief – 7 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

This is Chief who is a brindle Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is approximately seven years. Chief had been rehomed by our local dog pound but sadly his owner became ill and he was returned to the pound. We were then asked to take him so he is in boarding kennels near Redcar in the North East.

Chief is a happy friendly dog who enjoys his walks, he does not pull and walks well on the lead. Even though he was attacked before he came to us he has shown us no signs of aggression. We would prefer him to be an only dog though this is not written in stone. Also with older children.


Zeno – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Zeno is a 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Zeno is currently living outside while the owner is out for 10 hours per day. and he needs a foster home quickly, please anyone someone. He could do so much better. He is excitable for couple minutes on greeting, good with the children from babes upwards, will chase the cat.

Zeno wants to play, can we find Zeno a human to play with him? To take care of him, to give him a life. He is not yet spayed but a voucher for this will be provided. He is a stunning dog you’ll agree. Let’s make it his year this year.


Ruby – 5 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Ruby is a very stable stalwart girl of five years. She is fully dog tested, she is cat tested, she is loyal placid and calm natured. Ruby lived on a house boat, she travels well. Ruby loves to play a game of fetch, she is not greedy, she walks well on a harness. Ruby likes children, so a family of well behaved children of 8 and above would suit.

Ruby is one of those Staffordshires that give the Staffordshire Bull Terrier a GOOD name. She is an ambassador for the breed you could say. Loyal intelligent and happy to please. Her owner travels away and Ruby is left a lot with pet sitters so a new home is being sought.

If you like this breed or just wish to help the breed you couldn’t go far wrong with Good girl Ruby. She will happily live with a cat or a well mannered dog.


Jane – 4 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Jane is a 4-year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross who is currently in kennels in RCT, South Wales. She came to Friends of the Animals RCT as her owners couldn’t cope with her skin condition and couldn’t afford the treatment that it required. After lots of medicated baths, visits to the vets and much TLC Jane’s skin is looking wonderful but we still haven’t managed to find her a foster home or a forever home.

Jane - Friends of the Animals RCT (1)

Although she is much-loved by our regular dog walkers she would love a home of her own. Jane is such a loving and affectionate girl. She loves to play with a tennis ball and will happily return it as a swap for a treat. She loves walking especially when she gets to really sniff and explore. Dog walkers have told us that she is a little strong on the lead to begin with but that is pure excitement at being out and about. She travels nicely in the car. Jayne is very eager to learn and to please especially if there are yummy rewards, which makes training a breeze.

Jane - Friends of the Animals RCT (2)

We are looking for a foster home either to assess her or with a view to adopt, preferably with with bull breed experience. Out of caution we are looking for a cat, dog and child-free home for Jane. She has been fantastic with children she has walked with and really bonded with one boy that she met so we will consider each home on a case by case basis if there are older, dog savvy children or teenagers.

If you can offer Jane a foster home, with or without the view to adopt, please complete the following link


Hope – 4 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hope is a gorgeous 4 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She came into our care as there was a tragic bereavement in the family and they were therefore finding it difficult to care for her properly. Hope is an extremely happy Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is friendly to everyone and has a lovely nature. She is very affectionate and adores belly rubs. She seems to revel in simply being given plenty of attention and love. She walks reasonably well on the lead but is quite strong, primarily because she is quite a chunky girl.

Hope could be rehomed with older children and has also lived with cats. She is looking for a home as an only dog . Hope would make a brilliant and loving companion and is waiting for her forever home.


Hugo – 14-16 week old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

This is the adorable Hugo. Hugo is a 14-16 week old Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy. Hugo is a very happy, playful, loving little chap, Hugo is a very confident puppy, and needs someone who is going to be around a fair bit of the time to concentrate on his training.

Hugo is good with other dogs, but being a puppy expects them all to want to play ! He can be homed with children over 8. Hugo would love an active home, and someone who is prepared to go to training classes and give Hugo the stimulation he needs. Hugo is chipped and has had his first vaccination, He will need to be castrated when old enough.

Can you offer this beautiful boy the home he deserves ?


Popeye – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hello, my name is Popeye. I’m a four year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner was evicted from their home. I’m a friendly, sensitive and sweet-natured chap. I can be shy of strangers but it doesn’t take long for me to make friends with people who are calm and gentle with me.

I’m super affectionate with people that I know and trust and I always enjoy a good tummy rub. I have a habit of lifting my paw to invite people to scratch my tummy. I’m toilet trained and also I know the basic commands which I respond well to. I love going to the park and get along well with other dogs I meet out and about. I also enjoy playing with my toys.

I’m now looking for a forever home with an active person or family who have owned dogs before and have researched my breed type. I can live with children from sixteen years of age and upwards but I’d prefer to be the only pet in the home. It’s not yet known how long I cope being left home alone so I’m currently looking for a home where there is somebody around for most of the day. My new owners will be expected to provide me with a minimum of one hour of active off-lead exercise every day.

If you’re interested in adopting me you will need to be fully prepared for the hard work and long-term commitment involved in caring for a dog, you’ll be taking on an eleven year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.

I hope to see you soon,



Simba – 9 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Simba is a very cute 9 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy who came into Oldies Club care because his owners were moving out of their home. He is in an Oldies Club foster home in Gloucester, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent home. Simba has been playful and friendly with all dogs he has met on walks, but at his first foster home Simba didn’t get on with the resident dogs. We therefore think he would probably be best as the only dog in his new home. Simba needs a home with no cats or small animals. His foster carer has rabbits and has had to section them off as Simba was pouncing on the cage.

Simba isn’t suitable to live with young children. He gets very excited and jumps up. He can also be stubborn and doesn’t like to be forced to do something he’s decided he doesn’t want to do, so children need to be sensible dog-savvy teenagers. Simba can be nervous of unfamiliar things and takes some persuading to go for a walk in a new area. Once he knows the regular walking routes though he is quite happy to go, doesn’t pull and has good recall. He is having a 30-minute walk in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening, but he prefers to just go for a wee and then curl back up on the sofa!

Simba doesn’t like loud noises and tends to bark at them, but this has got better as he has settled in. He doesn’t like to go out in the dark and his foster carer has struggled to get him to walk on a route in the dark that he is happy to walk in daylight. He doesn’t like being picked up or having his collar touched. He once grumbled when his foster carer tried to move him off his beloved sofa, but if you are firm with him and don’t give in to his stubbornness he realises that he won’t win and, especially if there is a treat on offer, he will give in!

Simba is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and will be wormed and flea treated. The vet mentioned that Simba has an issue with his back leg from a previous injury. The vet believes this can be managed with joint supplements and by controlling Simba’s weight.
