Stanley arrived with us back in July last year due to a change in his previous owner’s circumstances.
He was adopted in September but unfortunately has had to be returned to SSC as his adopter sadly became unwell and unable to care for him.
Stanley is a very friendly affectionate boy who loves spending time with people. He greets everyone with a waggy tail and always wants a fuss.
He loves his treats and will sit and give paw if there’s one on offer.
He also enjoys playing with toys and, in true Staffy-style, loves destuffing any soft ones!
Stanley walks well on the lead without pulling. He does have an issue with his elbow, but can currently manage 3 x 20-minute walks a day.
He ignores other dogs on his walks and is more interested in saying hello to the people he sees!
Stanley travels well and is quick to settle down.
Stanley is well behaved in the waiting room, though he would love everyone to say hello to him!
He can get a little stressed for blood draws etc. and so we’ve sedated him for these - he never shows any aggression, just gets very wriggly.
He is very well behaved for his monthly injections, especially when there’s a treat or two on offer!
Stanley has elbow luxation, which means that the joint isn’t in the right place. He has monthly Librella injections for this and they’ve really helped with his mobility.
He does need to limit walks to around 20 minutes and he will need to keep running around to a minimum to help keep him pain free.
He had treatment for an eye ulcer with his previous adopter, but this has now cleared up.
His routine blood tests all came back normal. He does have a few lumps but they have all been sampled and came back as nothing to worry about.
Stanley needs a pet free home - he doesn’t really want to interact with other dogs and wants all the fuss for himself, so he would settle better as the only pet in the home.
He can live with children 10 plus, he can be a little bouncy at times.
Stanley can be left for short periods of time once he’s settled into his new home.
Stanley is microchipped, vaccinated and he is neutered.
He is currently in kennels in Stoke-On-Trent, but he can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him at least twice where he is now.
There is a non-refundable adoption donation of £120 for Stanley and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
