Bonnie has been in foster a couple of weeks now and she’s proving to be adorable. She’s a three years old staffy whippet cross who has been passed around and bred from, experienced some domestic violence and was taken to a vet very ill a few weeks ago.
She’s sometimes a little unsure of new people and will growl and snap but she really has not got an aggressive bone in her body. She backs off while growling – obviously, she’s scared she’s going to be hurt.
Over the last few weeks, she’s made lots of new friends though and is improving all the time. Once she trusts you she’s as fussy as can be. We think she needs an experienced home with older dog savvy children (teenage+) or adults only. She’s not lived with cats so a definite no to those.
She’s not really reactive to other dogs much now so possibly a home with a calm, gentle male dog could work for her but she’d definitely be happy being the only dog. She’s fine to be left for reasonable periods, she can open doors and will do so but she doesn’t chew, bark or mess when left.
She loves her crate – it’s her safe space and she will definitely need a crate in her new home (she’s never shut in it as she doesn’t like that). She insists on standing up to look out the window in the car (& falling over when you go round corners!) but she travels fine.
She came to us in poor condition but is slowly putting on weight, has had her stitches out from her emergency Spey (pyometra) and is currently on antibiotics for a urinary infection. She loves her food, is a very sweet and loving little girl and will make the perfect addition to the right family.
Forever homes can be anywhere within the UK but you will need to travel to us in South Yorkshire. As always we require everyone in the family and any children who are regularly going to be in contact with the dog to attend the meet.
Our usual process is that you will need to come and meet the dog and that adoption is then done on a second meet. For some dogs, additional meets may be required and potential adopters will be required to travel to the dog’s location for all meets.
If you meet the criteria for this dog please call 07766 766252, 07950 404074 or 07727 307337 8am-8pm to discuss (if your call is not answered please leave a voicemail and we will return your call).
If you are suited we will then arrange a home check, vet reference and meet with the dog. We only rehome where all residents and previous animals are/were regularly vaccinated and neutered/spayed unless on veterinary advice.??
