Biggie the tiny Terrier x Staffy
Biggie is sadly looking for a new family and is being returned to Little Legs after becoming unsettled and unhappy in his home. Biggie was adopted out two years ago as part of a bonded pair, and has been living in a multi- dog household. As he is getting a little older however he is not enjoying living as part of a pack in a busy house with a young baby and his adopters are reluctantly surrendering him back to our care. We believe Biggie is a cross of a small terrier and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, but he is very petite and super handsome.
Biggie can be a little bossy on his walks and doesn’t like it if strangers get in his space or approach him suddenly. He can be a little sass pot and pull a bit on the lead, therefore our friend Becca at Collar and Co in Southport is donating a 1-2-1 session of lead walking practice/skills to any local adopters to help them get started in a new routine.
Biggie can guard his food around other dogs but this shouldn’t be an issue as an only dog. He loves to cuddle and be under the duvet with his humans and is clean in the house. His favourite things are fleecy blankets and snacks.
We are currently very busy and rescue spaces are extremely limited – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE HOLIDAYS BOOKED OR ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO FINALISE THE ADOPTION IN GOOD TIME – we have a huge waiting list which we are constantly juggling as we hate turning away dogs in need. Please tell us about and breed experience on your application form.
