a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. Hughie needs a united family who loves his energy. Proven with children, not a leapy Staffie, knows to sit on command and smile! Not for cats. Needs fair sized secure garden with regular exercise. Hughie has lost his fragile confidence around other dogs so need support to avoid dog contact which is the only factor holding back him finding his family. Can be left short periods. 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.Click here to learn how to add YouTube Videos to your phpBB forumClick here to learn how to add YouTube Videos to your phpBB forumKnown background:
Hughie was abandoned in Cardiff as an 7 month pup and unclaimed. 5 months later the pound was full so pushing their limits as a 'no kill' pound as asked for our help. We stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Hughie's life. Fostered for 2 weeks with a 5 yr child but didn't accept the cats! Homed for over 2 years but change of circumstance meant Hughie was returned into kennels in Feb. 15. Neutered, vax'd and chipped. Currently in boarding kennels in Godstone.About Hughie:
Hughie has a HUGH Staffie heart with Collie intelligence. Hughie is a people person with a sunshine personality but never had a chance to develop self confidence due to impoverish puppyhood, and spent his early life in kennels. Hughie's smile shines through so a whole lotta loving to be done! A happier dog you'll never find. Webbed feet means Hughie adores puddles and water! Housetrained, non chewie and excellent in the home & garden. He makes friends easily. Hughie just needs supportive management outside as shows concern around dogs and especially bouncy off lead encounters, but managing well around the kennel walks.
Hughie is a Stollie from Wales, small Staffie size, black brindle with white tail tip, chest, socks with badger strip..just like a collie! Hughie loves to be cuddled up and potter around his home. Very engaging in play and oh how he loves his toys. Hughie can get excited meeting dogs but soon settles alongside and becomes friends given confident management but really would prefer just to be with his people. People person.
