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 3 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.

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 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 is currently in kennel in Guildford.

About Maisie: Maisie was emotionally shut down on arrival in November 2014 but slowly came out of herself to reveal the fabulous dog she so is. She has never been keen on other dogs but out walking with them she has been fine. Maisie doesn't like intrusive bouncy dogs and will bark at them if she gets flummoxed, and is soon distracted back on her walk: Calm dogs she settles with. Maisie is not cat safe. Maisie walks nicely on lead and so enjoys her walks and cuddles. She is totally people friendly like most Staffies, good with children. 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 'matured' Staffie around 7 years old. She has had a hard life + 3 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. Experienced Staffie home will know they have won the lottery in stepping forwards for our bestest friend

I met this sweetheart for the first time today. She was keen to go for a walk and when we got to the wooden gate that leads to the towpath she lifted her front leg and placed it against the gate! How gorgeous?! She just loved being out and about and spent most of the time sniffing and snuffling the ground. Her tail didn't stop wagging! Unlike most Staffies I know she was not at all bothered by the muddy puddles and actually seemed to make a beeline for the really muddy bits! We met a few dogs while out and she didn't seem too impressed by them but her body language suggested to me fear and that maybe she hasn't had many, if any, positive dog experiences in her life. On the way back to the kennels a dog was close to us on the towpath and initially she froze and was gearing up to be grumpy! I was able to distract her however and she managed to carry on walking concentrating on me even though the dog remained behind us. What a good girl! An absolute darling who I hope is going to blossom further with the love, reassurance and instruction from the Guildford gang.

Loved walking Maisie yesterday. She is very quiet in the kennels around the other dogs and just puts her head down and marches past them all, no reaction, just wanted to get out. She does pull when walking, so needs some lead training, but she loves being with you and loved her run in the paddock and I found her very connected and she does want a cuddle, very friendly girl. Was sad going back in her kennel with all the barking, I hope some kind soul offers her a home soon, she is a darling.

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 choses to comment, so obviously he is right she is an amaisng 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.

Maising 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.
