Laika is a 6 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Spanish Mastin. She has been in kennels in Spain for two years now! She has arrived with us here in the UK in the hope to find her happy ever after.

Spanish Mastin’s are known to be an incredibly loyal breed who are bred to guard livestock. They are used to sitting alone on guard and a little stubborn as they are used to making their own decisions! But Laika is also very affectionate. She is a large girl, 80cm in length and weighing over 30kg!

Laika is very relaxed in nature and loves to follow her human companions around. She is house trained.

Laika hasn’t lived in a home environment. She will be looking for a quiet and patient home who can give her the time to adjust to her new surroundings.

Laika will walk nicely past other dogs but gets nervous if other dogs get too close to her.

Pending assessments, I am looking for:

A foster or forever home
A home where children are over 12 years
A pet free home
A quiet and patient home

Please have a read of our requirements to ensure that you are eligible to apply here.

The aim of this non-profit organisation is to find foster homes and permanent homes for dogs in need of a new home. They take on dogs whose owners are no longer able to look after them due to unforeseen circumstances.

Staffie and Stray Rescue are also in the process of developing a campaign to help change people’s negative attitudes towards Staffordshire bull terriers, who are often portrayed as dangerous dogs in the media. With 75% of stray dogs being Staffordshire bull terriers, they hope to encourage more people to rehome the breed.
