    Like most Staffies, I love to be with my people, so much so that I need to be an only dog. But who needs anyone else when you've got me?
    I have been waiting a while to find my human, but I know they are just around the corner..i just have to be patient.
    If you think I might be the dog for you, please come and meet me. Oh! And please bring peanut butter!
    Love, Mickey xxx

  • ABIGAIL: Stunning lady, Medium Female Staghound Mix
    Sweet Abigail is a very beautiful, approx 5 year old, Staghound blend.
    Abigail has been here before. She is an old soul who is gentle, loving and has a heart of gold. Abi has had a rough time in her previous home. She had a bad experience with aggressive dogs, so she will require patience and understanding at the park. Walking on a lead can be intimidating for her, so someone who can work with her to overcome her fears would be ideal.
    Abi would benefit living with another friendly dog as she LOVES to play with her foster mates and they have been great at teaching her how to live life to the fullest. Abigail is also fantastic with children. Abigail has had some not so nice humans take advantage of her kind nature. As a result, she can be timid around men. However, she warms to them once she realises they are not a threat.
    This special girl will require a soft approach to learn house rules and will be inside with her family as much as possible. She is not suited to a mostly backyard lifestyle. Abi needs a family that are home often and can give her the time and love that she needs. Abi will give you all of her heart if you can give her yours. She cannot wait to be your friend for life!
    Abi has been: Vet checked, Desexed, Vaccinated, Microchipped 956000009373387 , Parvovirus tested, Wormed and flea treatment given

    Isla is looking for a home with a friendly dog to keep her company and where she is allowed indoors with her people. She will need a daily walk for exercise.
    She has been: Vet checked, Desexed, Vaccinated, Microchipped 956000005810536 , Parvovirus tested
