Hello, my name is Jac, even though I’m a girl-dog, because I was named after my owner’s friend. My owner was Simon and he loved me very much but he went to Heaven in July so his friend asked if I could come to Senior Staffy Club as she knew they would find me a loving home, which is all I want.


I’m not 100% staffy as you can see; I’m told I look a bit boxerish although my previous owner said I was a Neapolitan mastiff. Oh yes, that’s right, I had another owner too, but he sold me on Gumtree, which was how Simon found me. Simon liked to travel around and lived in a motorhome for a while, so I’m a well-travelled dog! I have lived in lots of different places and am not fazed by travelling or going in a car or even a caravan. I just jump right in and look forward to the adventure.


My favourite pastime, apart from having cuddles, is chasing a stick. Balls, not so much. But give me a stick any day… I’m even happy to fetch them from water if you like to throw them in there for me. I used to have a dog-friend called Mac, and he visited us often in our motorhome, and we went for walks together. I don’t mind other dogs when I’m out and about, but given that I fell out with a dog I lived with briefly, my friends here think I shouldn’t live with one again.


I’m a little overweight as my Simon was poorly for a while and couldn’t take me out much, but my friends at the kennels have been taking me out lots and my waistline is beginning to show again! I’ve still got a way to go tho, perhaps you could help me with that?


I’ve recently been to the vets for my health check – it was quite a new experience for me, but I didn’t mind it and the vets said I was very brave. They also said I was very healthy apart from having a few excess pounds. I wasn’t used to being left alone before, but now that I’ve had to get used to spending some time in kennels, I’m getting more used to it, so I think I would be OK being left for short periods once I come home with you, but I do love company so ideally I’d like you to spend lots of time with me. I don’t demand a lot, just your company and affection, and I like to sit next to you on the sofa and lean on you.


Oh, I almost forgot! A few years ago, before I put on weight, I won some prizes at some dog shows! I won first prize in the ‘best condition’ class at Ludlow dog show, and then when I went in the ‘best in show’ at the end, I came fourth! I’ve still got my rosettes to prove it. So you see, I was quite a looker in my time!


I really hope I can find my new best friend soon. Love from Jac x

Hello everyone my name is Bella I’m the new girl on the block at SSC. I came from another rescue to SSC thank goodness they could help me. It took me a few days to settle in, but I love it now, though my biggest wish is to get a new home.


Hi Everyone I just wanted to tell you I’ve been in foster for a few weeks now, so my frosty and I would like to share a bit more info with you.


I am a very clean girl in the house, I have a strong bladder . I am happy to be left for several hours, as long as you leave me a snuggley bed to snooze in, even better if you can leave the bed in the sunshine….. I loves the sun! I am a good girl with people in the home, my frosty mum says I’m very polite. I even don’t mind the workmen working in the house. I love snuggles, I’m not sure on small people, as I’ve not really met them.


I love the back garden, but I’m not a bouncy jumpy girl, so any size garden would be nice, specailly if its a sunny one… did I tell you I loves the sun?


I really don’t like dogs, speciallly if the are loud and bouncy. My frosty thinks my reactiveness is fear driven.
I love going on my walks, but find busy parks quite stressful, as there are loose dogs everywhere. My favourite places to walk are away from other dogs. My mum takes me along the canal, I love it there as she can see for miles in front, so she knows I’m safe and I can relax, roll around in the grass and sniff the verges. I am muzzle trained, and I’m happy to wear it in busy places. I have even wore it to walk with my frosty’s friends calm spaniel this week, he was a kind boy, and frosty was please with how well I behaved.


I have to visit the vet people at the end of this month/beginning of next, as I’m told I need my girlie operwation, then I hope my furever family will find me. I’d love to live somewher rural, where I wouldn’t need to meet too many dogs.

Bella will be spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is in foster in Lancashire, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her where she is now.

There is an adoption donation of £90 for Bella and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.

Applications for Bella are suspended for the moment.

TEMPERAMENT: Loving nature – loves people

Poppy came to us from a very loving home where her owner had to make the heart-breaking decision to give her up due to her long working hours, knowing this was the ultimate gift she could give to Poppy. Poppy had been struggling being left for long periods of time and was suffering from separation anxiety causing her to urinate in the house, which ultimately led to her doing this even when her owner was at home.

Poppy was initially assessed at our kennels and was found to be a very loving dog who craved lots of attention. After her vet check-up she was moved to a foster home so we could undertake further assessments. During her two weeks in her initial foster home where she had constant love and attention, as someone was home all day with her, she flourished and had no accidents in the house.

Poppy recently moved to another foster home and has come on leaps and bounds, although on occasions she will have an accident when left, but her foster Mum is working on this with her and our behaviourist have given us specific techniques to help Poppy overcome this and feel secure and confident to be left, knowing someone will return.

Poppy is a dinky little brindle and white Staffy weighing in at only 16kg. She has such a loving nature and just enjoys being with people. She also loves playing with her Kong and tennis ball. She enjoys nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa with you. She has never been socialised around young children but is happy with approximarely 8 year olds up. She loves her walks and is very good on the lead. She pulls initially but soon settles down. She is not keen on other dogs.

Poppy would benefit from someone who is home all day with her and who enjoys going out on long walks. Her new family must be willing to continue to work with her to overcome her separation anxiety. The love this little girl has to offer is second to none and anyone would be lucky to have her as part of the family.

Poppy is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is in foster in the Gloucester area, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her where she is now.

There is an adoption donation of £90 for Poppy and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.

Lady Penny came to us from another rescue.


Hi friends, I’ve been in foster for a while now, and I just loves being in a home with me own frosty mum…. I fink she loves having me round too. When I first arrived, I didn’t like being left on my own at all, and would sometimes wee and poop in the kitchen…. however I’ve been trying really hard to be a big girl and not do this.


I’d really love to find pawrents who are home most of the time, as this is when I’m at my happiest. This is what my frosty mum says about me:
“Penny is a really sweet natured dog, who loves people and is well behaved round them. She loves being fussed and having tummy rubs. She adores going for walks…. (this is very true, I even helps you by holding my lead in my mouth while you get your shoes on ). She will walk for a long as you want to go for, and when you get home she sits for you to wipe her feet clean. Penny walks well on the lead, except if there are other dogs around… she really doesn’t like them, and can spot them a mile off!”

My frosty is currently muzzle training me, I love the peamutt butter stuff I have in the muzzle thingy. While walking Penny takes interest in things that move like bikes and people, so I am mindful of this, as she likes to greet everyone. So friends as you can see, I’m being a good girl for my frosty, but I would really really love to find my furever pawrents now.


I would need a home without other pets, as I loves to chase any sort of furry things. I am happy to share my pawrents with older human siblings that are 14+, I’m not sure I’ve been around small people. My aunties at SSC tell me I need to have my girlie operwation at the end of the month, then I am all ready for my new home. My application form is at the end of this page, please be sure to fill it in.


We would be looking for someone who is willing to continue Penny’s muzzle training.

Penny is to be spayed, is vaccinated and is microchipped. She is in foster in Oxford, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her where she is now.
