Tinkerbell Needs a Home

About Tinkerbell

If you think you could give Tinkerbell a home please get in touch.

She is a 2 years and 3mth old Staffie x Mastiff

Tinkerbell is a sweet but nervous girl and is very wary and nervous of new people, especially men and needs to be introduced correctly. She doesn’t like people to approach her and prefers to approach them and then she lets her guard down after a good sniff, and treats always help!

She walks well on the lead but is reactive to other dogs, although we are working on this with positive progress which will need to be continued by her adoptee. She has good recall so is no problem off lead when it’s safe to let her off. She is muzzled when let off lead for safety.

Although a nervous girl after she’s got used to you she loves nothing more than cuddles or playing fetch or tug.

She is fully house trained and is well behaved indoors and even sits nicely while you do her food and waits until you give her the go!

Tinkerbell would thrive in an adult only home or a home with 12+ children who are dog savvy.

Unfortunately this poor girl wasn’t given the care she deserved in her past and has been pushed from pillar to post. She has been in a loving foster home since January who have been provided her with all her needs and training! She really is a sweet girl and deserves a loving, quieter home with people who will be patient with her nervous ways.

All potential adopters will be subject to a home check and will need to meet Tinkerbell a few times before adopting her.

Please contact us for more information.
