Buttons needs:- a Staffie family who will anticipate his Staffieness of love, exuberance and devotion, and love him deeply for himself. Buttons needs stability and to be the centre of a caring family. Abandoned at the age of 6 tells us he has been doing a lot right, but change of circumstance found him abandoned. Only pet probably: but happy to meet other dogs out and about 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.

Known background: Buttons was found tied up outside a supermarket chipped but former owner sold him on 5 years previous! The future was bleak...but we came forwards to offer him a Rescue place. Buttons is now neutered, is chipped and is fully vaccinated. Buttons is currently in boarding kennels near Gatwick.

About Buttons: Buttons is Mr Personality! 8 years young and settled in his skin. His eyes are like little shining buttons in his little button face. Mischievous definitely Those eyes with delight when in company & he is so appreciative of affection. Seems settled around dogs once away from the kennel environment in fact Buttons meets dogs well but mainly ignores them. Kennels are hard on him. Button’s will lead play initially which delays him finding his special family offering companionship: A Staffie you will want Tweet Sweet

Buttons is a brindle pedigree Stafford 8 year old. Buttons has settled to life in kennels despite the fact he hates it and he cant wait to get on to walks or into a car! Chain lead until he settled post kennel exit then fine. Bustles along happy to be there greeting and making a beeline for the puddles and water. "Little Buttons is wonderfully responsive, seems to thrive off of instruction and was walking perfectly to heel within 5 minutes of walking. Does an adorable little look up for reassurance and really relaxes when told what to do then congratulated, made me want to squish his gorgeous little face! I controlled myself though as it would of been a bit mean of me to tell him what a good boy he was for being calm and relaxed and then do the complete opposite myself!" Mrs P volunteer. Buttons loves water; balls; and laps equally. Cuddlemonster.

Button's Thread below: Watch steady progress within our loving care.
Original Referral: "Buttons is dark brindle Staffie, born in 2008. He is frightened of dogs in the kennels and has until the 22nd Sept at North London. He is microchipped but the owner apparently sold him on via internet 5 years ago and they do not have any contact details for him. He was actually found attached to a lamp post in Sainsbury’s car park, I believe he was simply dumped. Dog Warden"

Met Buttons coming back from his walk with Becky yesterday and she didn't need much persuading to divert into the paddock :)
Even though this was the first time Buttons had met Becky he was very focused on her

Waiting for Becky to throw the ball

he kept looking over at me as if to say..."will you tell her to throw the ball"

He was a fast little dog so the camera went into sports mode to capture him

Enjoying a back scratch (still with his ball :biggrin.gif: )

I had the pleasure of walking this little fella today. He gave me a lovely welcome then said let's go, he was oh so hopeful we were going to get in a car, I got the distinct impression he was waiting to go home :cry: bless him. Once out of the car park we focused on our walk, he loved the water trough so much he was doggy paddling even before he jumped right in :biggrin.gif: He found a tennis ball in the walker room and that was his favourite toy, he'd run after a different ball but hung onto the tennis ball while running :D He was however extremely good at placing it in my hand for it to be thown again :biggrin.gif:

Another lovely walk with Buttons today, he does try to grab the leads at the beginning of the walk but soon settles down and is raring to go. He surprised me today I thought once we were in the paddock and the leads were off he'd be running like the wind, not so, he was very in tune with me so maybe he has been an offlead dog. Once again we enjoyed fetch, I'd bought a bag of cheap 'dog' tennis balls and taken two in the paddock with us, they didn't last two seconds lol.

I had my first walk with Buttons on Saturday. He is a lovely sturdy staffie boy. Very friendly meeting me and easy to harness and then we were off. A little bit of lead grabbing but I am sure that will settle down. It was my fault for faffing around re-arranging my pockets and not walking!

The heavens opened on us and poor Buttons got soaked. I had my waterproof so I felt I was much better off but he was soaked - not that it seemed to bother him in anyway, a proper little trouper. I like this boy and he has the Gabe look of one ear up and one ear down which is super cute.

I then dried him off when back in the kennel which he seemed to enjoy. Lovely friendly chap.

Only one picture which is a bit rubbish but it shows him sporting his 'wet look'!

Love this little chap :smiley-love029.gif: we headed straight for the paddock today where we found the tennis ball Barley found had a squeak! Buttons absolutely loved that, we played fetch alternating the ball with a squeaky santa but ball was definitely favourite and it was carefully carried on our walk. Paddock first worked well for him it was a much calmer walk today but I guess he had to concentrate on carrying that ball. On our return I didn't have to reluctantly exit the kennel while persuading him to stay in, he was too busy taking his ball to bed to worry where I was going ;)

I am with you Chinquest, Buttons is wonderful and I have fallen for him too. He is such a great little character. He makes gorgeous snuffly staffie noises when he has his ball and boy does he love a game of fetch! This is only my second walk with him today but he is so charming that I am smitten. We both got quite muddy after a walk and paddock time and I loved every minute. A bit of lead grabbing again but I was more prepared, no malice Buttons just gets excited so I distracted him out of it with treats, got moving and he was fine. He really is a very handsome chap and so much fun.

It had to be Buttons first for me today ;) a really good boy to harness, very eager to get going and then he hopefully heads out for the cars, when it's obvious he's not going in a car he does a little lead grabbing but we head for the paddock and run off that frustration, then off for a lovely walk carrying his new treasured tennis ball all the way :biggrin.gif: then back to his kennel where I had a special treat for him. He sniffed, he took his tennis ball and carefully stored it in his bed then he came back for the treat, sweet boy.

I had another lovely walk with Buttons on Saturday. A lot less lead grabbing as we get to know each other. Such a happy staffie boy who really is fun to be with. He was so happy to be out and about. Had a good look at the cows in the field, much less interested in horses though!

Had a lovely walk with mischevious little Buttons today hes totally adorable, and wanted to say "Hello" to everyone we met on the towpath :D. He is a little escape artist, whilst I was harnessing, he managed to wiggle through the door gap of about an inch wide - quick as lightening!! :smiley-signs002.gif: :smiley-love029.gif: so just warning everyone about this clever little escape artist!! He wasn't at all grabby on the lead though!! All in all once we got "the great escape" under control he was fabulous on the walk, very forward going, and I was suprised how powerful this little bundle of scampyness is!! Definitely going to love my walks with Buttons :smiley-gen132.gif:

Little Buttons is quite 'terrier' in personality and reminds me so much of my Staffie x JRT Charlotte, it's safe to say that I am very taken with him. He is wonderfully responsive, seems to thrive off of instruction and was walking perfectly to heel within 5 minutes of walking. Does an adorable little look up for reassurrance and really relaxes when told what to do then congratulated, made me want to squish his gorgeous little face! I controlled myself though as it would of been a bit mean of me to tell him what a good boy he was for being calm and relaxed and then do the complete opposite myself!
