Tubby Custard has been with us for two weeks. He came into us at Senior Staffy Club after tragically losing his mum.
He was quite bewildered when he arrived, but is settling into our routine beautifully.
Tubby is currently in our Worcester kennels. He was very sad and scared when he arrived, having lost his mum and he has had lots of change in a very short space of time.
He is shy, but super friendly and really wants to be fussed and stroked. He has clearly been a much loved pet and loves people.
Tubby Custard seems to be really enjoying his walks. He stands perfectly to have his harness and lead put on and he walks lovely on the lead without pulling.
His tail doesn’t stop wagging the whole time he is out.
He recently had a great time walking over the field on a long line. He had his nose down sniffing way in front of us and when called back, his recall seemed very good.
He hasn’t been worried by people or traffic passing him whilst out and about.
Tubby has not reacted to other dogs who have passed him wile he has been on his walks. We managed to stop on the opposite side of the road to another walker and dog to have a chat and he calmly stood waiting.
We have not tested him meeting other dogs on or off the lead, but his previous family advised he was bitten twice by Alsatian dogs when he was a puppy and consequently doesn't trust other dogs when out.
Tubby travels well in the car. We are advised he prefers to sleep on the back seat, but will also travel in the boot behind a dog guard.
The vets have visited Tubby at the kennels and he behaved perfectly for the vet to complete his health check, blood tests and vaccinations.
He has had a full health check, including blood tests, and all has come back in normal ranges.
We aren’t aware of any health issues and he hasn’t shown any.
• We feel a calm quiet home would be best for Tubby, as it will allow him to gain his confidence and feel happy again.
• Following the advice from Tubby’s previous family, we feel he will be best suited as the only dog in the home. However, he might be able to be carefully/slowly introduced to dogs when out and about.
• Due to him being shy and a little nervous, children would need to be 14 years and over.
• We feel Tubby will be ok to be left for a couple of hours at a time once he’s in his routine, as his previous family tell us he is independent when at home and sleeps.
Tubby is microchipped and has had his 1st vaccinations, 2nd ones are due mid February. The cost will be covered by the Senior Staffy Club. Tubby is neutered.
He is currently in our Worcester kennels, 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 an adoption donation of £120 for Tubby Custard and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
