Hellooo, my name is Boss, and I’m the latest happy chappy to join this club! After I was left in a house with lots and lots of cats when my owner died, I was sent to a place called a rescue, and then they asked Senior Staffy people to let me join their Club. I was very scared and didn’t want anyone to come near me, certainly not to put a lead on me!
But after a few frightening days in a place called The Kennels, I went to live in Zach’s Shack, where I quickly got used to human company again and started to relax about having a lead put on – especially as it meant I went for some lovely walks! Some people called Walkers came to visit me every day and they became my friends, and they taught me that I didn’t need to be afraid any more.
Now I am in a place called a Frosty Home, which is like a proper home but not permanent, and I am soooo happy! I get to play with toys, and roll about on the floor, and curl up in Uncle Jim’s famous chair (I’m told lots of other staffies have been here before me), and I go for walks too. It’s ace!

I have been quite a good boy for the vet, which is also a scary place to go. I let him put a muzzle on me so he can examine me, and I let him stroke my head, but there are some places I’m not happy about him touching. After all, I don’t know him that well yet. I had very painful ears when I arrived, so I didn’t like people touching those at all, but now I’ve had some medicine for them and they are nearly better. I also had skin allergies from all the fleas I had collected, but that is all better now too. I still have some arthritis and apparently they can’t fix that, but I can live with that – it doesn’t stop me playing and smiling and walking and barking!
I barks when I wants my dinner, and I barks when I wants to play or go out. I barks at other dogs too when I goes out. I could probably live with a cat again as I lived with lots before, but I don’t want to live with other doggies as I’m not too keen on them, and I’d like to have all the fuss for myself now that I’ve discovered how nice it is.
I was very clean in my kennel and not destructive at all. Because I was quite a scaredy pup to begin with and it took me a while to trust people, I need my new family to come and meet me a few times to build up my trust. I’d really like to meet someone who is at home with me a lot. My carers here at the Senior Club say I need a quiet, adult-only, experienced family and they say they will be a ‘special’ family. Well of course they’ll be special if they adopt me!
Boss is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is in foster in Worcestershire, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him where he is now.
There is an adoption donation of £90 for Boss and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
