Shona is just a ridiculously sweet little girl! She might be deaf, but that in no way affects her lust for life. This cute little wiggle bum was super company yesterday - trots around checking everything out, very connected to her walker looking back, and more than happy to stop for a belly rub. Super dinky, super sweet and super ready for a home!!

Shona's only trouble yesterday ? A daft walker who called her Shola in her video - you just can't get decent walkers these days ! My only excuse is that Shola too is a lovely woofer, but make no mistake, this post is ALL about the wonderful SHONA!!!

Totally agree with what Emma said about little Shona - she`s gorgeous, sweet, dinky (she`s much smaller than she looks in her photos) and fun loving. She welcomed me into her kennel yesterday with a waggy tail and bum, she didn't want any treats just wanted to get her harness on and get out bless her. We walked with kennel mate Stella (and Brenda) and Shona was happy to take the lead with Stella plodding along behind, Shona checking back now and then to see she was still with us. She may be deaf but someone has taught her some things as when we got back to the kennels as soon as I produced a treat she sat and gave me her paw (she knew what was expected of her) and she thoroughly enjoyed them this time too. angel13.gif]

I've had the privilege of having Shona stay with me for a few days to give her a chance to recover from a trip to the vet on Saturday. She is such a lovely, affectionate little dog, who manages to pack a Great Dane sized personality into one of those little pocket sized staffy bodies.

A few things to note:

1. She really is deaf. And not in a "deaf when I'm being called away from something more fun, but I can totally hear my food being prepared" way. She will need to find a home that has the patience to learn how to communicate with her, but she is eager for attention, so she should be keen to learn.
2. She is quite needy. I don't know how much of that is because she may not be feeling 100%, but she has demanded a lot of attention from me over the past few days and has a good bark if I have the temerity to do something that doesn't involve her, and sometimes mouths a little to get my attention. She has only been with me for a few days though, I'm quite sure that she'd settle down, given time. Even so, I'd say that she needs a home where she'll be the centre of attention. Things that stop her barking? Food, lots of attention, the stuffed toy monkey that I gave her and finally, being taken out for a walk. I think some of the attention seeking is an excess of energy - tire her out a little and suddenly you find yourself with a snoozy lapdog. Which brings me neatly to point number 3.....
3. She does the cutest staffy snoring. Just the cutest. Snuffly, snoozy, snuggly snorey staffy.

Shona is an absolute gem of a dog and any home would be lucky to have her and all of the love that she has to give :smiley-love014.gif:
