All of the Staffordshire Bull Terriers shown below are, or will be, available for adoption.
7 year young MARLEY has been in foster care since August 2020. During that time we have been able to get to know him really well and despite his initial insecurities, he has become far more settled.
MARLEY's greatest pleasure in life is to have the company of people. Their presence is very reassuring for him and he really is one of the most tactile and affectionate dogs we have ever known. Totally trustworthy and very much at ease when people are around, MARLEY is best be described as loving and faithful.
Provided MARLEY has the company of humans he is the most easy going and laid back dog there is. His needs are very little, even when it comes to going for a walk. MARLEY is quite content with 10-15 minutes walk per day, much preferring to be at home on the sofa or lying in front of the fire. He is not jumpy or bouncy and is very gentle around people, happy to greet visitors and a real charmer.
MARLEY is looking for a very specific home due to his anxieties and fear of other dogs. He can pass other dogs in the street but doesn't react well at all if a dog approaches, so to err on the side of caution, MARLEY will always have to wear a muzzle when he is out for a walk. He is quite happy to do this and is very accustomed to having one on.
MARLEY also suffers from a degree of separation anxiety - he can become a little unsettled when left home alone although he is in no way destructive. The same applies to when he left alone in a car although his foster family are working with him to make travelling a little easier.
The most perfect home for MARLEY would be with a couple where at least one person is at home the vast majority of the time, perhaps a retired couple. He really is an ideal companion dog and would make a great pet for a couple that maybe had some mobility problems and couldn't walk too far. MARLEY likes a quiet life and can be around very little people for a reasonable amount of time, so grandchildren that visit would not be an issue for him.
*MARLEY is eligible for our Senior Stafford Scheme (SSS) which covers up to £500 of veterinary bills should they arise any time after he has been adopted. T & C apply.
