Lovely Staffies

The RSPCA Sussex East and Hastings Branch have an estimated 20 calls a month asking if we could find homes for Staffies.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers have increasingly bad press. This is because they get into the wrong hands with irresponsible owners who give poor training and badly treat their dogs, this is not the dogs fault.

These lovely dogs in the right hands are loving, loyal and Friendly. They make wonderful family pets as they just want to please so are great with children (they are often affectionately called the 'Nanny Dog'). They are well suited to a close living relationship with their human companions and do not like being left for very long periods of time. These affectionate dogs ask no more than to be part of your world and basically the more time you devote to your staffie the happier he will be. 

They are great for getting you out of the house for a walk and a young/adult staffie can practically walk miles. However each dog will have individual exercise needs. They are highly responsive to training as they are an intelligent breed and if trained properly will get on well with other dogs and even cats.

Home comforts seem to be top of their list, as they love a soft cosy bed to lie on and even an armchair or sofa if allowed!

Their very short coats make them really easy to look after,as they hardly need grooming. 

If you feel you can give a staffie a loving home please telephone Ann Craske 01424 813434  between 10.00 am and 6.00 p.m.

Ginger and white DLH, female, 11 years old approx.Tess is a beautiful girl with a personality to match. She is looking for a fresh start in life with someone who can shower her with love, as she so deserves. She is very loveable and enjoys snuggling up on your lap for a snooze. She would be a perfect companion for someone looking for a homely cat. Her confidence has come on leaps and bounds since she came to us. When she first arrived, she was in shock initially and was very scared of the other cats around her. Although still not keen on her feline neighbours, she's realised she's safe and this has allowed her loving nature to shine through. She would therefore really benefit from a home as only pet and without young children where she can kick back and relax. Whoever adopts this gorgeous girl will be very lucky and well rewarded.
Tabby DSH, female, 1 year approx.Henrietta has come on such a long way with her confidence since she arrived at the cattery. With lots of TLC and trust building, she's gone from a scared little cat, too afraid to allow contact, to popping out of her pod to sit on your lap for a fuss (and a few cheeky treats). She's also started to explore the cattery a little, but comes back to us for a bit of rub round for reassurance. She's an amazing little character who, with a nurturing and committed owner or older family, will blossom and grow in confidence all the more. She's such a gentle cat, and with not a bad bone in her body, she's looking for someone to give her a second chance.
Ginger DSH, male, 14 years old approx.Ivan is a dear and sensitive gentleman who was a stray before he came to us and looked like he had to fend for himself for some time. He would like nothing more than a cosy home to call his own, and a safe spot to snuggle down. Ivan is very shy and requires a patient owner who he could learn to trust and gain confidence. Once he is comfortable, he will really enjoy a fuss and loves being brushed. He would like a quiet home with an older family and could possibly be an indoor cat in a spacious environment. His adoption fee will be reduced as we'd rather Ivan spent his senior years in a comfortable loving home.Ivan is currently in a foster home. Please ask for details.
