Colonel Needs a Home

About Colonel

My name is… Colonel

I am… 2 in October

I am… Staffie x Mastiff

Can I be rehomed with dogs? Yes

Can I be rehomed with cats? No, not cat tested

Can I be rehomed with children? I haven’t lived with children before and rarely have young visitors in my new home. I would like to be rehomed with older children, aged 10+

I love… Getting lots of love and attention!


Colonel is a lively and energetic young boy! He will respond to commands but sometimes needs a little time to calm down before hand, especially if he has only just met you! He is used to living with other dogs in the home. Colonel is very food oriented and can be trained further through the use of food! When out and about on walks, he walks really well on a harness and is eager to please his humans and wants to follow your lead. Colonel loves to play.


Colonel would like to be in a home where new owners can continue training with him. Being a teenager he will try and push his boundaries! He has previously lived with dogs and could be rehomed with another dog with a gentle introduction. He is not cat tested so we would prefer he is in a cat free home. Colonel hasn’t lived with children and isn’t used to having younger visitors so families who apply to adopt him must have children over the age of 10 years.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested in adopting Colonel.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
