All of the Staffordshire Bull Terriers shown below are, or will be, available for adoption.
8 year young LUCY is an absolute sweetheart and one of the most loving, adorable and funny Staffordshire Bull Terriers that has ever been in our care. She also has the most beautiful eyes that seemingly 'talk' to you. With her expressions and 'chit chat' LUCY brings a instant smile to everyone around her and is constant supply of laughter and joy.
LUCY is looking for a home where any children are aged 10 years or above simply because she now prefers a quieter life than previously when she was younger and lived with small children. She is very low maintenance and easy to care for requiring just a couple of walks or a run on the beach each day. LUCY can be left for reasonable amounts of time without becoming stressed or destructive.
LUCY walks well on the lead (unless she spots a cat!), travels very well in the car, sleeps well at night, is fully house trained and is very obedient. Her favourite things are her baby (stuffed toy) that she carries around in her mouth, her ball, her stag bone (that she likes to bury) and lots of kisses and cuddles on the sofa.
We know from her original family background that LUCY has lived with at least one other dog and she is totally unphased by them when out on a walk but now that she is approaching her senior years we feel that she will best be suited to a home where she is the only pet.
Due to her calmness and all-round balanced temperment LUCY would be ideal for a family that didn't neccessarily have a lot of time for training and hours of daily exercise like a young, boisterous dog would need.
LUCY is eligible for our Senior Stafford Scheme (SSS) which provides up to £500 worth of veterinary treatment (exluding vaccinations and worming) once adopted should the need ever arise.

5 year old MESSI has been in the long-term care of NISBTR since 2014. However, it is now time to find him a family to call his own.
MESSI came to us as a young pup who had been born with an underdeveloped windpipe (hypoplastic trachea). It is a condition that needs to be managed carefully and can cause him to struggle to breath on occasions, especially in warm weather. Due to this, MESSI's exercise regime needs to be restricted. It is something that he has coped well with over the years and two or three short walks a day is all he needs to keep him happy.
MESSI's hypoplastic trachea also means that his food has to be given to him in a very watery consistency and that he is never allowed to eat anything other than that (apart from some broken up chocolate buttons at bedtime) as he could quite easily choke with very serious conseqences.
Despite his ailment, MESSI is a very happy-go-lucky dog with a wonderful personality. He loves to play non-energetic games and is the most affectionate little Staffie with lots of love to give.
MESSI is looking for a home with no other pets. Even though he has lived for the past four years with two other dogs we feel that it is time for him to be the centre of attention.
MESSI is wonderful around babies and children of all ages but because of concerns that he may pick up food that may have been dropped on the floor by a small child he can only be re-homed with older children in a household. He is fully house-trained, travels well in the car for short distances, walks well on the lead (albeit very excitedly) and can be left for reasonable amounts of time. He is non-destructive and sleeps well at night.
MESSI is the kind of dog that everyone loves as soon as they meet him. He makes them smile with his funny little ways and his sticky-out tongue. He is looking for a family that would love to have a very special little dog to treasure and take care of, and that can make sure that his condition is continued to be managed as well as it has been.
If you wish to find out more about MESSI, please call us on 07563 368 589 or 07599 240 652.
