Clover Needs: A companionship family to support her settle in and to begin to help her relax without the need to prove herself so she can calm and enjoy family life like never before. Clover need stability and dog experience offered to her. Staffie understanding, would help her to be admired for the terrific dog she is. Clover would be fine around children as long as her energy isn't over hyped as with any terrier. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Clover was found straying, with unregistered chip by a Rescue inserted during a neutering scheme. Their records could not trace the owner who was over 50 miles from the area found. We were asked if we could help Clover. We were delighted and Clover has captivated us ever since. Clover is neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. Clover was in boarding kennels in Guildford for a long time. Clover has been homed briefly but is barking her owner in when she is seldom left & neighbours have complained. Clover comes back into kennels after Easter but could go straight into a suitable home before then.

About Clover: Clover loves to roll over, she loves water, she loves life! Clover is a busy girl and needs a family who enjoy her enthusiasm and fun. Clover can be quite gushing as she strides away from her kennel but once on her walk relaxes and charms. Clover is very relaxed in the home and needs a companion home as she has lost her home because her routine changed and her hours left unsettled her. Clover travels well in a car. Meeting dogs outside we tend to keep her moving and so she can get used to her walkers command and not be over enthusiastic in saying hellos. Once she is familiar and walks become daily routine she should settle even more. Clover is a people dog.

Clover is a red (clover!) Staffie to her paw tips with delightful ears to enhance her smile. Here is MrsP's description "I have introduced Clover to many people and they often say "she's very connected to you isn't she?" and yes she is but that is because I ADORE her. If you love Clover she loves you back a hundred fold, she has the heart that everyone is looking for in a dog, she WILL give you her all and be an ever faithful companion. Give her guidance, structure and affection and she will be 'very connected' to you too, forever." Vol Dog walker.

See Clover's Thread Below. Watch her progress through our Rescue.
Original Referral Details: Jaqueline called to say one of the Staffies her Rescue had neutered & chipped in a 'free nip & chip scheme' had been found stray in Brighton. The dog warden said this Staffie had been seen stray several times but they hadn't picked her until now. Unregistered chip and no one has come forwards in the last 2 weeks. We were asked could we help her and make her safe. Jaqualine is arranging transport to bring her to us.

Video: Clover enjoying a walk

Clover was checked over by our vet Mark and he was very taken by her temperament, what a lovely dog!. He concluded she was already spayed, in good health, a little over weight. Mark said despite she has a greying muzzle felt that was premature and placed her in her 3rd year. Clover received her primary vaccination followed by a treat.

Clover was welcomed into kennels with open paws and was soon enjoying a walk with the 'big boys' Georgi and Atlas.

Clover was very happy once she had made sure the boys knew their place...boys are to be seen and not heard and girls are to be adored.

Georgi and Atlas are very easy going boys so despite thinking Clover was really quite lovely they were happy to let her fit in wherever she was happiest.


Image

Being new to this 'portrait' lark, Clover was happy to oblige although our first attempt at 'say cheese' resulted in quite a cheeky face.


Image

But Clover soon got the hang of it and showed me her 'best angle'.

Image
Image

Then she finished off her first day with us, proving she really was going to take everything in her stride and was a very good girl in my car.

She's a lovely girl, I have a feeling her home can't be far away.

What can I write about Clover apart from WOW - She is an absolute star
She wowed me from the moment I walked into her kennel - as soon as she saw the harness she sat and even lifted up her front leg to help me get the harness on her :)

Didn't react at all to the other dogs yapping away at her - once out the kennel area we walked along the foot path and the first thing I noticed she was walking right next to me, not pulling at all :)

Someone has obviously spent time training this lady - she sits on command and as you'll see from the photos below she even gives paw (left and right).

One other thing that soon became apparent is that she love's people - nearby there were four workmen sitting in their van having a coffee break - she stopped to have a look - tail wagging and that was it - all four of them were out the van saying hello to her - didn't know a tail could move that fast :) - Clover certainly loved the attention

First impression Clover appears to have a great temperament and always has a permanent smile on her face:

She was quite interested in the squeaky ball:

As mentioned before - gives paw left and right

Then it was time for a cuddle:

Dear little Clover was my first ever walk at Gatwick yesterday.

I love Staffies and for me, this girl is right up there. A super, super girl.

Clover was a good girl to harness and get ready.

We walked with 3 other dogs and Clover was happy to lead the walk. She kept looking round and making sure that everybody was keeping up. A real character and such a sweetheart.

Hope your forever home is not far away Clover. :anyone:

Wow...walked Clover today and there is no other way to describe her except very very cool! :love4: She practically harnessed herself and we were off. She is incredibly agile, climbing the almost vertical banks along the river and then leaping down again. She knows her name and bounces up to you with so much joy and happiness when you call her for cuddles. She enjoyed a long roll in the grass on the green and was cool as a cucumber when kids ran past her shouting several times and met lots of other people too. I really hope she finds her home soon, she is gorgeous! :)

Cutie pie Clover helped show new walker Maddie how to harness up - although Clover made it SO easy I think we could have waited outside and let Clover do it herself! What a beautiful girl, full of sparkle and the joys of spring (although yesterday felt like winter)! A joy to walk and cuddle with; just an all round super little Staffie girl. We're so lucky to have her at Guildford but would love to see her gone to her forever home.

Clover is usually quite strong on the lead but today she walked on a loose lead and perfectly to heel when I asked, good girl!

I had a lovely walk with Clover on Wed (sorry for the late post; the week ran away with me). It was quiet out on the tow path so I put her on the extender and she walked beautifully, able to explore every nook and cranny. She was walking so nicely that silly me, I took my eyes off the path ahead and didn't spot the bird which had just landed! My life flashed before my eyes as Clover hit the end of the extender at full pelt and I found myself "flying through the air with the greatest of ease" - or not, as the case may be! :biggrin.gif: Clover bless her came straight back to see what I was doing lying flat on my face :smiley-gen132.gif: and then off we ambled again. A lovely walk with a lovely girl!
