Gizmo Needs a Home

About Gizmo

Gizmo is an eight year old Rottweiler cross. He is a very gentle boy who is looking for a special retirement home as he is blind. Gizmo is more than capable of living a near normal life with some small adjustments to help him adapt and find his way around. He understands a number of commands which help with this. We use a squeaky ball to help guide him where to go and he is motivated by treats! When he goes on a walk, he prefers that two people accompany him as it seems to help him feel secure. He would love a home where he can play in the garden, laze and have tummy tickles. A quieter home without too much change would suit him better – he loves people and is very affectionate and gentle.

*Please note- Gizmo is not currently with Staffie and Stray, we are just helping him by trying to reach out to the right person! If you are interested, please get in touch and I will direct you to the rescue he is with.
