Lovely Staffies

The RSPCA Sussex East and Hastings Branch have an estimated 20 calls a month asking if we could find homes for Staffies.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers have increasingly bad press. This is because they get into the wrong hands with irresponsible owners who give poor training and badly treat their dogs, this is not the dogs fault.

These lovely dogs in the right hands are loving, loyal and Friendly. They make wonderful family pets as they just want to please so are great with children (they are often affectionately called the 'Nanny Dog'). They are well suited to a close living relationship with their human companions and do not like being left for very long periods of time. These affectionate dogs ask no more than to be part of your world and basically the more time you devote to your staffie the happier he will be. 

They are great for getting you out of the house for a walk and a young/adult staffie can practically walk miles. However each dog will have individual exercise needs. They are highly responsive to training as they are an intelligent breed and if trained properly will get on well with other dogs and even cats.

Home comforts seem to be top of their list, as they love a soft cosy bed to lie on and even an armchair or sofa if allowed!

Their very short coats make them really easy to look after,as they hardly need grooming. 

If you feel you can give a staffie a loving home please telephone Ann Craske 01424 813434  between 10.00 am and 6.00 p.m.

Tortie DLH female, 10 1/2 years old.Bootzie is an elegant looking girl who would suit a quiet and calm house with no other pets, she would benefit from a routine to help her settle. Bootzie is shy and unsure of new people. She needs an owner who understands that it may take her a long time to become comfortable in a new home. She is very affectionate on her terms, she like to rub round your legs and hands. We have found she likes to be the one to make contact with us, but can panic when she is touched in return if she's not expecting it. 
DSH Black female, 5-6 years old. Hettie is a very beautiful girl with a stunning jet-black coat. She is looking for a home where she will enjoy plenty of outdoor access but can also benefit from home comforts and general ongoing care. Hettie can be affectionate and playful but remains unpredictable as she has an independent side, so she would suit a home where she can choose the comfort of indoors or explore the outdoors in a large garden or small holding. She requires an experienced cat owner who can work with her behavioral problems. With time she may possibly become more settled with her new owners and will require attention on her own terms. She is very sensitive to sudden movements and noise within the home, so would be best in a quiet environment without other cats or young children. 
Black DSH male, 10 years old approx.Jingles is a sweet, gentle lad with different coloured eyes, making him very unique. He can be a little shy initially, but when used to his surroundings, gains in confidence and enjoys a gentle fuss. He would make a good companion cat and would ideally prefer one-on-one attention or a calm, quiet household where he can be himself and develop his loving character. He would also like to be the only pet of the household. Provisional Reserve
