Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Scott – 2 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Meet Scott! He’s a 2 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who has come to us as a stray. Scott is a really friendly dog, who is desperate to get out of kennels and into a new home where he can get lots of love and attention! Scott is very good with other dogs and could possibly live with a calm female dog. He is the type of dogs whose tail is always wagging!

Scott is a lively and enthusiastic boy, who loves his walks. He needs some training, as he doesn’t know any commands. He needs some help with lead training too. With a bit of time and training, Scott would make a perfect Staffordshire Bull Terrier companion!

We would prefer to rehome Scott to an owner who has had experience with Bull breeds. Scott hasn’t been cat tested.


Gwen – 1 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Gwen has had a difficult time . She was sadly tied up outside our Centre by her owner when she was perceived as being too much. This often happens when puppies grow into adult dogs who aren’t as ‘cute’ anymore. Gwen is only a young girl and deserves far more than life has given her so far. She is sweet natured and can potentially live with a calm dog in the future. Gwen has lots of energy and loves to play! She will make a lovely pet for the right family.


Gus – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Gus was recently transferred to us from another RSPCA Centre. He is a happy-go-lucky boy with lots of love to give. Gus has lots of energy and loves to play. He would like a home with someone who has lots of time to spend with him and take him for long walks. He is a lovable chap and anyone who meets him instantly falls in love with him. He would need a home with older children as he is very energetic, but he has so much love to give and desperately needs someone to take him home. Gus is a typical Staffordshire Bull Terrier and always has a smile on his face. He walks better on a harness and his favourite game is playing with his ragger!! Gus may live with calmer dogs, pending a successful meet at the shelter.


Digby – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Digby came to us as an extremely malnourished little boy, he was skin and bone and had been neglected by the young couple who owned him. Having had such a bad life hasn’t affected Digby, he is a happy little chap, loves kids and was living with kids and cats before handed in.

Digby is extremely playful and loves to play with a football and playing with smaller dogs. He wants everybody as his friend and is very affectionate. Digby is fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and neutered.

We also provide four weeks FREE insurance. Also, we do home-check all prospective owners before rehoming. We do ask that if you wish to adopt a dog and already have one, that you bring it along to see if they get on.


Owen – 6-7 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Owen is a full Staffordshire Bull Terrier and is approximately 6-7 years old and is an absolute hoot. The wee guy is full of character and charisma and will make a superb addition to his new home. Owen has proven himself to be good with other dogs at the rescue and interacts with them all appropriately during exercise time. During his time in emergency boarding he was taken on many pack walks and presented no problem with any other dogs he met. However, we recently rehomed him and the family said they experienced some difficulty with him when meeting other dogs whilst he was on the lead. Although we haven’t experienced that here it is better discussed.

Owen was cat tested whilst in emergency boarding and proved to be fine. During his time here he has had a lot of exposure to our cats and has never shown any inappropriate behaviour or indicated that he wanted to chase them. He has even been found with a cat in his kennel run :-0 and all has been well. However, the family who rehomed him returned him because he didn’t get on with their cats so again, this is an area that any potential adopters need to be aware of. Owen is a very affectionate bundle of love. There is nothing he likes more than to snuggle up on the couch next to you and snore his evening away. He can walk very well on the lead and just loves to play with a ball.

Whilst he was in emergency boarding with Homeless Hounds, he attended a fund raising day at Pets at Home and proved to be a fabulous ambassador not just for Homeless Hounds but also for the SBT breed. He was happy to meet and greet everybody who went to the stall and he behaved impeccably. The one thing Owen loves more than anything is his blanket. New owners must be aware that even though you may give him a lovely, soft bed he still needs a blanket. Each night, before sleeping, Owen works away with his blanket to make a little cocoon (see pic below) and sleeps the entire night like this. How cute is he?? Owen could live either as an only dog in the house or with another calm dog. He could live with dog savvy children over the age of 8. He could potentially live with dog savvy cats.

He is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, flea’d, wormed, veterinary health checked and assessed. He is fully house trained and loves travelling in the car.


Hugo – 1 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hugo is a lovely 1 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who has come to us after being found as a stray. Hugo is such sweet boy. He is a very calm Staffordshire Bull Terrier and very affectionate. As you can see from the pictures, he loves a belly rub!

He knows basic commands and will happily give you his paw when you ask. Hugo is so eager to please, that we feel sure he will easily learn any new commands. His tail is always wagging!

Hugo is looking for a loving family who will give him the love and attention that he craves. He would suit a first time Staffordshire Bull Terrier owner or an experienced one.

Hugo could possibly live with another calm dog and with children over 10. He hasn’t been cat tested.


Buster – 14 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hello my name is Buster! I am a friendly boy but my hearing and eyesight are not as good as when I was a pup. I love people and love to have some company, although I don’t mind being left for a few hours if you need to go shopping. When you go shopping could you buy me some apples they are my favourite thing…thank you.

I don’t mind other dogs, but these days I would rather they didnt fuss around me or get in my face. If you have an older quiet lady dog I may like to live with her though, if she is gentle and we get to meet first to see if we like on another.  I don’t like cats though– so no cats please.

I have lived with children before aged 10 years old and over so could live with that age range again or slightly younger, but no younger than 8 years, again I don’t want too much running around or being over fussed.

I do have a heart murmur. I have had it quite a while, and I don’t have any medicines for it although this may be a factor in the future. I do still like my walks though – but if you stop for a chat or to look at something I will let you know I would like to move on please!. I do like to travel in the car.

My favourite things to do are to sit in the sun, lie on my bed, chew my Nylabone and when I am up to it have a gentle game of tug  – oh and don’t forget I very, very, especially love an apple! So don’t forget to bring one along when you come to see me….love Buster x

Buster is in foster in the Rutland area of Leicester and any prospective adopter will need to be able to visit him there. Once to say hello, and then having seriously thought about the commitment of offering Buster a forever home, a second time to take him home. We do ask for an adoption donation of £90 to help us to continue our work with other Senior Staffies in need.


Hera – 2 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Hera is a female 2 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She is a great little Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Obviously she absolutely loves all people as Staffordshire Bull Terriers generally do. Sheis also good with the other dogs here. She shares her kennels happily and mixes with others on walks and in the paddocks. She is confident and bright and tries very hard to please. She is vaccinated, wormed, micro chipped, neutered and vet checked.


Kurtis – 4 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Kurtis is a lovely, handsome 4 year old black Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy who has been waiting for nearly a year for his new home and is now available for rehoming. He walks well on the lead and enjoys sitting for a tasty treat, although he’s not on a diet (having gained a few pounds). He loves cuddles and having his belly ticked.

He is looking for a new home where he is the only pet in an adult home with experienced owners. Please give Kurtis the chance to show you how much of a brilliant pet he could be. Come and get to know is cheeky personality!


Chico – 9 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

My name is Chico, I’m a Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy aged 9 years old. I came into rescue with my best friend Jodie after our owner passed away. I have big brown eyes and a lovely smooth chocolate coat. I am a very lovable, steady boy in need of a new home. I am good with dogs and all people, little and large! I am lonely here in the kennels, Jodie has already gone to her new home but I am still waiting. I would really love to be snuggled up in front of a fire this Christmas.


Bobby – 6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

My name is Bobby, I am a 6 year old tan Staffordshire Bull Terrier boy. I originally came to Carla Lane Animals in Need as a stray, the dog warden collected me and after spending 7 days at the council kennels I was up for destruction, because my owner didn’t claim me. I was in a state, starved and in need of some TLC.

After months of extra meals and cheese and biscuits for supper, I have now reached my target weight. I walk well on the lead and will sit, paw, lie down, roll over and even speak for a yummy cube of cheese – mmm my favourite! I am a happy, friendly boy with big gentle chocolate button eyes. I need a pet free home, but would love my own human for Christmas.


Butch – 10 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Butch is a happy little guy, excited and joyful to meet new people! A typical Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Butch loves people and craves attention and strokes. His owner left him with a friend two years ago and never returned for him. Butch’s current carer can not give him the time or walks he needs. Unfortunately Butch does not like other dogs, sadly this is not his fault, rather it was his original owners fault for not socialising him! Butch therefore needs a sensible home that will walk him at quiet times or in quiet areas.

Butch has not been around children for many years, he therefore needs an adult only home. At the moment Butch is living in a flat and rarely gets taken out to go to the toilet, he therefore has to go in the house. We are sure like most dogs that Butch would prefer to be clean and given the opportunity, would be toilet trained. Although he is 10 years old, he still has plenty of energy in him so needs an active owner to give him a couple of nice walks a day. This lovely boy has had a sad time being passed around, we are determined to find him a loving mum and dad for the rest of his years!
