Maisie Staffie DOB 12.07.08 Bristol

About Maisie: Maisie was emotionally shut down on arrival in November 2014 but slowly came out of herself to reveal the fabulous dog she is. She makes friends wherever she goes, and is a firm favourite with the volunteer kennel walkers. She has never been keen on other dogs, but out walking with them she is fine. Maisie doesn't like intrusive bouncy dogs, and will bark at them if she gets flummoxed; she is soon distracted back on her walk. Calm dogs she settles with. Maisie is not cat safe and needs to be an only pet. Maisie walks nicely on lead and so enjoys her walks and cuddles. She is totally people friendly like most Staffies, good with children out and about. Maisie is now a total cuddle monster and loves a good hug with kisses. She is one of those dogs that will roll in anything - she just loves to throw her legs in the air.

Maisie is a mature Staffie. She has had a hard life with 4 years of kennelling on top. Her coat is a golden red and she has the attractive greying black muzzle. Housetraining has remained throughout her kennelling. She loves to play with toys and let her hair down. This lovely girl just needs a chance and she will be an absolute darling in the home, and would so love to share your sofa. An experienced Staffie home will know they have won the lottery in stepping forwards for our bestest friend.

Known background: Maisie originally came from Essex where she lived in a flat and been bred and bred from. Maisie went to a Somerset rescue (2011) for 2 months but then was taken in by a Welsh Staffie Rescue who had her for over a year and improved her socialisation skills and general training. Maisie is now spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated. Maisie was in kennel nr Gatwick.

Maisie needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. Maisie needs a family who understands her impoverished past as a breeding machine and will support her adjustment back into a home setting after 4 years in kennels. Maisie needs to be an only pet. Maisie seems receptive and settled around children but not proven to live with young since her time in Rescue. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Maisie is a little sweetheart. She is a strong little dog but she was actually very easy on the lead as she loves to amble along having a good old sniff and snuffle as she goes. Very friendly and cuddly, just a delightful little character to spend time with.

I took Maisie for a longer walk today and she was delighted. We walked with Louise with Nessa, both dogs happy and busy with their walks giving each other plenty of space. Maisie walks with her nose to the ground in a very determined fashion enjoying all the smells. She will let you know where she wants to go but equally is happy to go with your directions if asked. She is a friendly, calm girl, an all round delightful walking partner.

Lovely Lovely Maisie travelled to the vets in a crate..a little meowing but that was more to do with the dog travelling next to her. Easy peasy in the vets and Mark our vet stated what an amazing dog she was, which he rarely chooses to comment, so obviously he is right, she is an amazing Staffie girlie. Maisie is starting her vaccination course again. So peaceful in crate travelling back and I left her to enjoy the paddock. When I came back to her she had found a place to sit in the sun and was just basking so quiet and enjoying the quiet and her own company in the warmth of the spring day.

Maisie can really walk...her owners would be great if they were into power walking or jogging!. She has lost weight but still a a little way to got..she will feel younger and younger as it lifts off.

Maisie made a guest appearance at Godstone this afternoon so taking advantage we took her in the paddock so she could stretch her legs and we could get a photo or two:

I was ridiculously happy to see Maisie today. She was so much lighter on the lead and not bothered by other dogs like she was before, we had a beautiful, relaxed sunny walk.
I love her

Had a lovely walk with Maisie today. At the start when we walked past the cars in the car park she wanted to get in all of them, think she wanted to go out somewhere or home maybe, bless her. She walked nicely along the towpath, enjoying herself with lots of sniffs and even a pick of grass!! Maisie has lost some weight since I last saw her when she first came to Guildford, I have to say she looks really good !!

Lucky me spent 3 hours of quality time on Saturday becoming aquainted with the lovely Maisie. We walked to my place of work where there is a private enclosed tennis court, so she could have some off lead frolics and fun :D

Maisie was adorable when we ran around the tennis court net and played chase.

She was so happy she did an impromptu roll on her back!

Maisie is a soft hearted dog and seizes moments of affection when invited. At one point she sat on my lap in a very ingenious cobra position way. Her back legs were on my lap, whilst her front legs were on the ground :P

Here are some more photos of Maisie enjoying herself:-

On the way back to the kennels we popped into the local pub to see a friend. Maisie sat very calmly by my side in the beer garden, which drew people towards her. One lady in particular said she was impressed with how well behaved Maisie was and that she was extremely surprised she was still available for adoption. Maisie took all the fuss in her stride :cool:
