Fluke Needs a Home

About Fluke

PLEASE NOTE:

FLUKE IS NOT WITH STAFFIE AND STRAY RESCUE. WE ARE HELPING HIM TO FIND HIS FOREVER HOME.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FLUKE, PLEASE CONTACT ST FRANCIS ANIMAL WELFARE:

Dogs

Name: Fluke
Age: 3 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Staffordshire Bull terrier
Neutered: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Good with children? Fluke could live with teenage children but really is too full on for younger children.
Good with other dogs? NO – Fluke really needs to be the only dog in his new home.]

Cats: No – Fluke likes to chase them

Summary: Fluke will need to be rehomed to a quiet/rural area, with an understanding and patient owner. Due to a lack of socialisation when he was young, Fluke can really struggle at times when in the presence of unknown dogs (particularly large ones), this behaviour is also worse when he is in unfamiliar surroundings, and he can be quiet reactive. His new owner will need to be able to work with our dog trainer to help Fluke settle and relax in his new home.

Fluke is a lovely but lively boy with bundles of energy. He was trained as an agility dog in his previous home which was a great way of channelling his energy. He is very good at jumping so a very high fence and secure garden is a must! He has a very sensitive tummy, so is on a strictly fish based diet and this really suits him. He has a lovely glossy coat and really is in lovely condition. Fluke is very quick to learn and very eager to please. He will be a delightful dog once he is placed in the right home.
