Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Gordon – 2 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hello, my name is Gordon. I’m a two year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew after being found abandoned on the streets of London. I’m an active, bouncy and sweet-natured boy. I’m super friendly and I get along well with everyone I meet, always greeting people with a waggy tail. I also get along well with other dogs, although I can be a little grumpy with some larger males.

I’m hard of hearing so my carers at The Mayhew are teaching me hand signals, I’m an intelligent chap so I’m learning quickly. I’m outgoing and playful, I can sometimes get a little over excited and boisterous but I’m now learning manners. I always enjoy playing with teddies but most of all I like to be showered with love and attention, I like to give kisses if allowed and I love having my back scratched.

I’m now looking for a forever home with an active and experienced person or family. I can live with sensible teenagers but I’ll need to be the only pet in the home. It’s not yet known how long I cope being left home alone so I’ll need a home where there is somebody around for most of the day. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes and provide me with a minimum of one hour of active controlled off-lead exercise every day wearing a long line.

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 twelve year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.
I hope to see you soon,



Larry – 1-2 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hi everyone, my name is Larry and I’m looking for my forever home. I am a very lively, friendly boy who is full of beans, I am strong on the lead so will need training to walk nicely. I would like someone around most of the day but can be left for 3-4 hours if I am exercised before being left alone. I have been mixed with dogs here and I was a little grumpy so I am looking for a new home where I will be the only dog in the household. I would also like to live in a cat free home.

Have you got room in your heart to love me? Can you offer me my forever home? Larry


Lucy – 10 month old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Meet Lucy, a petite 10 month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier! Lucy is a lovely dog, who is very friendly with people and always happy to see you. Lucy is good with other dogs and could possibly live with a male dog.

Because Lucy is still a puppy, she will need an owner who is prepared to continue her training.



Mutley – 7 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

This is Muttley, a 7 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is being rehomed due to the change in hiis owner’s circumstances. His last owner is epileptic, and Muttley would alert her if she was going into a fit. He can be left on his own for a few hours, and is used to living in a flat. He can also live with cats.

We would prefer to rehome Muttley to someone who has had Staffordshire Bull Terrier experience or similar. He could live with a female dog, and children aged 6 years old and over.



Patch – 1 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Patch is an approximately 14 month old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He has lived with other dogs in his previous home, both female. Unknown with cats. He has a nice temperament and we feel he would be suitable to be rehomed with older children aged 13 years and upwards. He has a sad, sad story and has not had much luck in his young life up to now. He was abandoned on his previous owner’s doorstep; they took him in but couldn’t cope with him and their own two existing dogs. Poor Patch found himself tied to the banisters most of the time. His previous owner’s carer did take Patch out for walks but realised that things could not go on as they were. She contacted us and asked for our help and we collected Patch and another dog from the same household. Patch travelled well in a car when being brought to our kennels.

Patch is still like a pup in many ways, he is playful and still mouthing at times. He is not coping well in kennels and shows very excitable behaviour in our exercise yard. He loves a run around and playing with a Kong safestick but he really does need more than we can offer him. He needs further training but he does do a nice sit and stay for a tasty treat, so we do feel he has potential to improve his behaviour through positive reward based training. Once he has had a good run around and got over his initial excitement of being out of his kennel, he does enjoy a stroke, he has a coat as smooth as silk. He is recognising the volunteers who spend time with him and I would expect him to form a close bond with new owner and family.

Patch is looking for a home with a garden, it doesn’t have to be huge, just a small patch for Patch! He’s not used to being left for long periods so no full time workers please. Anyone who is willing to help him settle and spend time with training will be very welcome to apply. Unfortunately, he doesn’t really stand out from other Staffies and we fear Patch will be with us for sometime. However, we rehomed a similar behaving Staffie some time back and she came to visit us recently, she was lively just like Patch. With time, patience and effort, she is now ready to compete in agility classes. So there is hope for our boy and we know there is someone out there for him. You could change a life if you adopted our lad. Please come and visit Poor Patch really soon, he would love to meet you.


Ace – 7 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Ace is a 7 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He came into our care as is owners could no longer keep him. Just like his name he is a cool boy who will make a great pet. Ace knows most of his basic training, and has previously lived with children so could live with them again. He socialises well with other dogs and can be rehomed with a female doggie friend. Unfortunately he doesn’t like cats. Ace would love to find a home where someone will be around most of the time as he doesn’t like being left for long periods. He enjoys going out on walks and playing ball. He also likes to talk and would benefit from someone who knows about bull breeds and their vocal habits.


Jessie – 3 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Jessie is a lovely Staffordshire Bull Terrier who has come to us after her owners circumstances changed. Jessie is 3 years old and is a very friendly and affectionate Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She has lived with children before and is very gentle with them, so could live with children over 10. Jessie is good with dogs when out and about and could possibly live with a calm male dog.


Karo – 9 month old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

What a lovely young lad Karo is, he is so very sweet and friendly with people and he likes other dogs, (but we dont know about cats). On his walk today he didn’t meet any other dogs, but he did meet some miniature ponies and goats! He barked at them, but came away when told. Karo is only little and has a big personality. He’ll sit for treats and is quite gentle but he does pull on the lead which we are working on and can easily be remedied with a halti and yet another little poundie who had just days left to live, because his owners got tired of him and just threw him away. Dogwatch saved him in the nick of time.


Foster update: Karo is a very sweet boy who likes resting his head on your lap and going to sleep. He gets on well with our dog Roo nicely and they now spend most nights sleeping next to each other in our room. Karo is not fully house-trained yet but we are working on that and he has made excellent progress so far. He does pull on the lead but its just the excitement of going out for walkies, so we are working with him on that too. He does not like other dogs around his food so we feed them in separate rooms and are careful in giving treats and giving toys etc. Once or twice we have had to stop him trying to snatch human food so new owners would have to be quite strict. He has also snatched a few times when having doggy treats but we are teaching him to be gentle and he is responding to this well. He didnt have very much training when he came to us but is learning quite quickly and is eager to please.


Current location is in a foster home in Oldbury, West Midlands – near Birmingham. He is vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, will be neutered before being rehomed and microchipped. Adoption fee is £135.
