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.
