Name - Guinness
Sex - male
Age - 3 years old
Size - medium, staffie x lab
Kids - older kids, 12+
Dogs - he has lived with dogs but needs help around them outside
Cats - No

History ….. His owner surrendered him to a vet who then contacted us. He had previously lived with an elderly Jack Russel.

1st arrived in rescue...… Aug 2020 We found a foster home for Guinness. He proved to be a very shy/timid boy, his foster mum took her time with him introducing things slowly and letting him come around in his own time. Guinness was vocal around dogs at 1st, we have been working on this with him this takes time and consistency but he does get there. He also showed signs of separation anxiety, which we worked on and we could leave him for 2hrs with no issues, this took time and patience.

After a few months of being in a foster home, Guinness found a home but sadly this didn't work out and he was returned on Xmas Eve 2020. His owners felt he didn't bond with the husband and that they couldn't deal with the dog aggression/barking.

Jan 2021 - Guinness is now back with us, he is in a foster home and meeting lots of people and dogs. He is doing really well we are taking things at his pace and he is shining. He is a total treasure.

More about me - I am a very sweet loving boy who can be a bit shy around new things. I like my food and take treats gently. I love deeply and bond quickly with my humans. You will need to be patient with me and take your time to get to know me. I need help around other dogs as I get overexcited and sometimes bark. I have learned how to sit and give a paw I love to play with toys, once you get to know me you will see the real me. I am a young foolish overexcited pup at heart who loves everybody. ​

Type of home needed ….. Jan 2021 ​Guinness needs a home/family that will give him the time and patience to do things in his own time. He is still very young and puppyish. He loves learning and interacting with you but it needs to be in his time. Once he trusts you, you will see a different dog one that loves life and is so eager to learn. He needs an active home that will show him what a beautiful world this is. You must be able to meet with Guinness a few time so he gets to know you. This will be done in Guinness's time. ​ There must be somebody around most of the time. Must have bullbreed experience,  Have experience with reactive dogs,  Have the patience to help himMust be an only dog in the home Teenage kids ​
This boy total sweetheart, he is soft, loving and totally adorable, hes like a big puppy who is eager to learn. Please give him a chance.  

FEB 2021 - from his foster mum 
Guinness is my latest foster boy. He came to me on Christmas Eve and has been my little house guest ever since. He has a little separation anxiety which we are working on. He goes to Doggy Day Care with Jen and Denise while I’m at work.

What Guinness likes: Cheese, toast with butter, pate, mince, chicken, mash tattie (as long as there is no gravy, he doesn’t like gravy - weird I know!) He loves his walks, he loves cuddles once he gets to know you, he is becoming quite independent in the house and does like his own space. He loves being tucked in with his blanket. He loves jumbones and Schmackos

What Guinness doesn’t like - there’s not a lot he doesn’t like but a few things are Carrots, Lettuce, Gravy (as above ) He’s not keen on being in the car but he’s getting used to it - he barks  a lot in my car but is great in my friends car and doesnt bark . He doesn’t like being cold and he absolutely hates the snow! We’ve been putting in a lot of work over the weeks that he’s been with me. He was in the habit of barking when we came home (excited bark) but we have managed to rectify this and he now only does it occasionally. He can be left for a little while at the moment (1hr) . He’s a little nervous but as he’s meeting more people, he’s becoming more confident. He just needs love, understanding and patience. He’s my little pumpkin and I love him.

History...….. owner surrender. Tuckers family had fallen on hard times due to Covid and losing their job and home. We offered to help by putting him in a foster home until they could take him back. We would get him to our vets and have him neutered, chipped and vacs. This was going to be for 6moths initially until they were back on their feet. This is the 1st time we have done anything like this but felt we had to help this boy and his family. 

Tuckers family have made on of the hardest decision any pet owner can make, they have asked us to look for a new home for their boy as they feel its better for him to be in a stable family home as they are still struggling. 

Tucker is with his foster mum Sharon until a new home is found for him.   

More about me...…
Tucker lived with 2 children in his home, he's great in the house. He loves his toys and is a typical staffie as he loves chilling on the sofa. He sleeps in the living room at night. He has never been good with dogs, he wears a  muzzle when out walking (he is used to wearing it) he loves his walks and will ignore dogs if they ignore him occasionally he will growl at them. 

When we 1st took Tucker in he was really stressed, the poor boy didn't know what was going on. Sharon his foster mum is an experienced fosterer and was willing to help this boy as much as she could. Over the coming months, Tucker started to relax and really enjoy his life with Sharon.

Tucker went to Dundas vets to be neutered, we asked them to check a small lump he had on his side, it was decided that while he was being neutered the lump would be removed. The lump was biopsied and came back clear. This sweet boy now has a clean bill of health and is ready to meet his new family. 

From Sharon Tucker's foster mum -
You would never believe what age he is as he's fit as a fiddle. He's also stunning, he's a very cuddly wee boy who loves being beside you,  typical staffie as he doesn't like the rain and a wee bit feared of the wind!

He had some separation anxiety and was stressed when he came to me,  over time we have worked on this with him, he's more relaxed now but he would like to have his human around if that were possible. He's also very nosey and will watch me from the window if I am in the garden he sits at the window watching the world go by.  

The staff at the vets loved Tucker, they were all over him and he loved the attention. 

He's dog aggressive but will walk by dogs as long as they don't bother him, he wears a muzzle when out so this helps. He loves walking and is good on the lead, he has manners and will listen to commands. 

He's crate trained and wanders in and out of it especially after tea.
He prefers rope toys, Nyla bones or kong type toys stuffed with primula cheese. He has a lovely character and the goofiest staffie smile when he's upside down on the sofa.   

This boy has kept me company thought this lockdown and it has been a joy having him here. 

Tucker would suit a family with older children who have had bull breeds before. He would like somebody around for some of the days until he gets into a routine with you. I can't say how lovely this boy is, he will make a great staffie addition to your family, please give him the home he so deserves.

1st arrived in rescue-  August 2020
Harley arrived to us from the pound in England where he was found as a stray. When he arrived in foster Harley was very confident and showed to be very loving and trusting very quickly. He showed so much affection and all he wanted was tummy rubs. He really struggled at first on walks as he was very alert to the world around him, and it took him a while to acknowledge his human on walks, but once he finally learned to answer to his name and the \look at me\ command, he did so much better. We are still working on walks as he can sometimes get vocal and over-stimulated around dogs and needs to learn better manners when passing/approaching, however he is making very good progress.

More about me
Harley is a very calm dog in the house, he loves his cosy chair and his bed, and he loves sunbathing. When he feels like it he will have a good run around with a tug toy and his squeaky. He loves his snoozing and is quite content to be left for some hours without a peep. He just adores cuddles and is not shy in nudging your hand when he thinks he's not getting enough attention. He loves getting visitors, and will quite happily roll on his back for belly rubs before you've even got your coat off! He is very clever and has many tricks under his belt including: paw, sit, stay, lie down, roll over, speak, hi-5, bang bang and crawl.

Type of home needed
Harley needs a home who are ready to put in the time to continue his training to improve his confidence on walks. He would love to be taken on long walks where he can sniff and explore. Harley gets on very well as an only dog, he is quite independent, however he could maybe live with other dog.

He has shown to be comfortable in the house with his two staffie pals Willow and Archie and loves his walks with them so much so that he gets sad when they leave! He would benefit from a home with a calm dog who could help his confidence outside and help reinforce positive behaviour around other dogs.

Harley could happily live with calm children, he is generally very relaxed around them.

Feb 2021 from his foster Mum Harley is a total angel. I love him to bits and love waking up to him in the morning - I say good morning and the first thing he does is roll over for tummy rubs. He loves his food, is not fussy at all, and will take treats gently - when you remind him! He's a funny, quirky dog who makes everyone laugh with his weird howls he does when he gets impatient waiting at crossings, and his wee tooth that pokes out when you give him the best scratches. We have come such a long way with his confidence on walks, and so he really needs someone who will be confident and who he can trust in to reassure him and continue his training.

​Harley is also a sensitive wee staffy and gets poorly skin. He is such a good boy and lets you pamper him, but really needs someone who will take the time to continue the care routine with him. We are currently doing a food trial with him to see which foods he is allergic to so that he has the best chance in his new home to be as comfortable as possible. This boy has so so much love to give, he just deserves the best, loving home.

I am currently in a lovely foster home, here's what his foster dad Sam has to say about him. 

Harold has had a great first few days. A lot of walking and meeting people/pets, some good bonding time, and basic obedience.
