Current Status: Available 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 'til then. Only pet: but happy to meet other dogs out and about away from kennel environment but will not tolerate a dog running into his space like many Staffie bitches: No damage done 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, chipped and fully vaccinated. Buttons is currently in foster near Gatwick.About Buttons:
Buttons is Mr Personality! 8 years young and settled in his skin. His eyes are like 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 were 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 . 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Dog laws have changed with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters for at least 4 months until sure of their dogs instincts & skills, most of our dogs will need to be retained always on a lead, so as not to place dog's lives at risk, (Destruction or Control Orders are common place nowadays).

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"
Buttons comes tomorrow into our care
