Missy is a beautiful 11-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross who is in an Oldies Club foster home in Chorley, Lancashire. Missy is fine about being left on her own for up to 5 hours, so she can live in a working household. Provided she had a garden break at lunchtime she could potentially live with full-time workers. She does like to have company though. She sleeps on the bed with her foster carer. Missy doesn’t like to have other dogs (or cats) in her space. Missy isn’t keen on children so needs an adult-only home, or one with sensible late teenagers only and no visiting youngsters.
Missy is well-behaved on walks, with great recall provided she is not loose around other dogs or children. Whenever a dog or child is in sight Missy needs to be on a lead. She likes about 30 minutes to 1 hour’s walking daily, around an open field. Missy doesn’t seem to see walkies as a toilet break though and so she will not go to the toilet but then will go when she returns home to the garden. She does need reminding to go to the toilet too.
Missy loves food. She likes to play with her toys and she enjoys lots of cuddles. She likes to be the centre of attention and she loves her tummy being tickled. She also loves sunbathing. She hates lightning and thunder and fireworks. She needs a lot of attention and wrapping up when these happen. A quiet home with one or two adults living in the household and not too many visitors. She needs a garden.
Missy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. She is on a joint supplement but nothing else at the moment. She has an issue with her paw that flares up every now and again, but the vet says it is not too much to worry about.
