TimmyTim needs a settling period to unpack and allow him to adjust having been in kennels for many years. Needs calm routine with infrequent visitors. Only pet status with a secure garden or area for off lead pottering. Not for children. Happy around other dogs away from the kennel environment. May prefer single owner as can bond and seek to protect so couple would need careful strategy to keep him owner; abusive past we are sureVideo: Timmy playing fetchVideo: Timmy Tim playing ballVideo: Timmy Tim on a walkvideo: Timmy Tim with his stickVideo: Timmy PaddockVideo: Timmy Vs BranchVideo: Timmy Tim at large!His Story:
TimmyTim was found tied up in a park on Christmas day 2011 very thin and covered in bite marks. He has built his confidence up since and now meets other dogs well. Still in kennels and needs the opportunity to prove himself. Neutered, vax'd and chipped. Advert:
TimmyTim wins hearts and is winning his way towards his ultimate goal; a family to call his own. We are currently suggesting 'only dog' so he can relax in his home. He meets dogs outside well in controlled circumstances as with all our dogs. TimmyTim is definitely a "people person" and warms and welcomes all. Easy to manage on a lead and delights in having walks. Would not recommend using a crate for TimmyTim, he has to feel comfortable and relaxed in his home. Travels well in a car.
TimmyTim is a larger Staffie and his calm disposition and colouring suggests American Bulldog. His head and laughing smiles are all Staffie, together with a very loving nature. As with all bull breed dogs, his energy should be kept calm, so within his control so no 'tuggie' but fetch and Treat Trail are great for TimmyTim. TimmyTim now welcomes and truly cares.

See TimmyTim's thread below: Watch his progress through our Rescue Referral Details: May 2012 This is Timmy Tim- he was found on Christmas day 2011 tied to a tree and covered in dog bites, he was deathly thin and in a bad way. Five months later he has turned around and is turning out to be a lovely boy. Lots of one to one and showing him that he can trust has changed this boy completely. He still needs work and understanding but is far from the dog I first met and has lots of promise. xx Thank you Niall Animal Welfare Officer
