Brian the Staffordshire Bull Terrier X

Brian the Staffordshire Bull Terrier X

Lucky Brian is a very handsome Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross who was found abandoned locally with no collar, tag or microchip. He became very famous after multiple social media posts were shared searching for his potential owner when it was discovered he had been abandoned on farm land and sadly no one was looking for him. Thankfully he was taken in by a local dog trainer Sharon (Prestige Puppy Coach) who has agreed to help Little Legs by keeping him safe until we can find him his forever home. Sharon’s clients rallied found and were able to fundraise enough to cover his initial vets bills including flea and worm treatment, castration, microchipping and vaccinations, yay! This means Brian has the very best start to set him up for future success. Brian’s body is very much that of a Staffie and his head a little slimmer. He will need a safe and secure garden and seems interested in trying to find possible escape routes in his foster home, as likely isn’t used to being contained.

Brian is very sweet and loves a head scratch, he walks beautifully on a lead and appears to be pretty neutral around meeting other dogs out and about. He is however very anxious around food and seems to prefer human stuff over regular dog food (chips and mayo so far is his favourite!), possibly indicating his previous life may have been a little dysfunctional. His foster Mum is working hard though to turn things around and give him the structure and routine he needs to behave like a proper dog. His future adopter can be supported by both Little Legs and Prestige Puppy Coach moving forwards so there is plenty of back up in place. Brian would make the perfect companion for an early retired gentleman looking for the ultimate best friend for walks and lazy afternoons. Brian will settle to be left and is making massive improvements every day.

As we have no history for Brian we would prefer an experienced owner and a home without children, or older, calm and patient teenagers.

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. Whilst a loving home is SO important for a rescue dog, they will also need structure, routine, boundaries and long term commitment.

Jason the Terrier – one quarter of the Take That boys

Jason the Terrier – one quarter of the Take That boys

***ONLY JASON REMAINING***

Jason has had one failed adoption as he pulled on the lead and can be vocal initially when left, but does settle. He is doing great in foster, is good with other dogs, clean in the house and crate and loves a fuss. He will only need some minor tweaks and training to blossom into a wonderful companion.

Welcome to the Take That Terriers – Gary, Jason, Howard and Mark, the ultimate boy band of dogs! These four boys were surrendered after their owner was due to be evicted for the poor living conditions in his flat. Jason is the dad and the three others are his adult puppies – they have lived together in the same flat for 3-4 years and have never left it, not even for a walk, to a garden space or to go to the loo. Whilst they have a lot to learn, they are very sweet and with time, love and patience we are confident these boys will blossom. They will need confident, experienced owners who are happy to give them plenty of commitment and energy to help them learn how to behave like proper dogs. We will discuss more of their background with potential adopters at a meet and greet. They were all excellently behaved at the groomers and loved the fuss. Priority will be given to local adopters who can take the boys sooner so they can start learning their new routine and settling with their new families.

The boys are all small in size but are slim and need to gain some weight. They have been flea treated, wormed, professionally groomed, microchipped and all been castrated and had their teeth scaled and polished with our vet. We have also had a full course of vaccinations.

NOW HOMED – Gary is the white boy, he is quite urine stained but has been clipped off and is much tidier. He has an old, historic injury on his head, possibly a burn but the vet is not concerned. Gary is one of the more confident boys and loves a cuddle and to play with toys.

Jason is the daddy of the bunch, he is the wire coated light brown boy. He is quite nervous and can be vocal when he’s feeling worried. He is loving and affectionate and will do best with an assertive, confident owner. Jason can pull on the lead and will need someone willing to put some work in to help him learn how to behave well in public. He is kind and gentle, is great with other dogs but can get overwhelmed out in the big wide world as he has not been walked or exposed to new situations for many years. He is however doing great in foster, doing well with his crate training and settling quickly. He is also clean in his crate and can be left a few hours.

NOW HOMED – Howard is the brown boy who has been completely clipped off due to extreme matting. Howard is one of the quieter pups, but is very sweet and gives the best puppy dog eyes. Howard is very slim and needs to gain the most weight.

NOW HOMED – Mark is the most timid and sensitive of the bunch, he is the last to come forward for a stroke but is gentle and placid. Mark is silver and tan in colour and shorter in stature than the others but very handsome. Mark has also been shaved off due to matting.
