Bosco Needs a Home

About Bosco

Name: Bosco

Age: 8 Years

Sex: Male

Breed: Staffie Cross

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, over 6 years

Can I be rehomed with cats? Yes, has previously lived with cats

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No


Bosco is a happy and energetic 8 year old Staffie Cross with lovely markings! He is wonderful with children and is used to living with a young family. He is a very playful boy and will happily play fetch for hours if he can. Bosco has previously lived with three cats. He would prefer to be in the only dog in the home. He can approach and sniff other dogs for a quick greeting but would prefer not to make friends with other dogs. He hasn’t been socialised much with dogs before.  He walks well on a harness and lead and will sit at the kerb before crossing the road. He is happy to be left for short periods.
Bosco loves getting lots of fuss and attention, he will go all soppy and nudge you when you stop giving him affection!
He is very fearful of fireworks and will need lots of support around this time.
Bosco would fit into a loving family home where he can be the only dog in the home. An active family would suit him so he can get lots of play time!
He loves children but he can be boisterous, we would recommend a family with older children or a home where children are very used to dogs.
Please contact the rescue if you are interested in fostering or adopting Bosco.
