I Am Looking For… A forever home

 

MY HISTORY

Tom was found as a stray and taken to the pound in poor condition. He was never claimed and SSR offered to take him in.

ABOUT TOM

Tom is a really friendly Staffie who loves people. If he meets anyone on a walk he wants to jump up to greet them. In his foster home, He has enjoyed belly rubs from the postman and gets excited by spinning when someone comes to the door. He rarely barks in the home, but can bark at traffic when out on walks.

 

MY TEMPERAMENT WITH OTHER DOGS

Tom is very anxious around other dogs and is reactive. We have no idea on his history or why is he so anxious. He is looking for a home who can continue the hard work and patience of his foster home, whilst confidently and responsibly managing his behaviour. Tom will need to be on lead at all times.

 

TYPE OF HOME NEEDED

I am looking for:

  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with children aged 10+
