Hello, my name is Patch, I am a fifteen month old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I arrived at The Mayhew because my owner died. I am a very active and playful boy. Iâ€™m super friendly, wiggly and giggly, and I get along well with everyone I meet. I also get along well with other dogs, although I can be a little exuberant for some. I love going to the park, I travel well in the car and I have a good recall off my lead. Iâ€™m also toilet trained but itâ€™s not yet known how long I cope being left on my own for. Iâ€™m now starting to learn the basic commands and manners, and Iâ€™m responding well. I love to play, my favorite toys are tennis balls. I also enjoy settling down with a stuffed kong or raw hide bone.
I am now looking for a forever home with an active person or family who have owned dogs before and have researched my breed type. I would happily live with sensible children from ten years of age and upwards providing they are used to being around bouncy dogs. I can live another dog providing we are the right match but I wouldnâ€™t be suitable to live with cats. My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes and provide me with a minimum of one hour of active off lead exercise every day. If youâ€™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 will be taking on a fourteen year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.
I hope to see you soon, Patch.
