Tex needs a training focused family and to be in experienced hands as he is naturally emotional. Rescue Remedies do not advocate our dogs are off lead, as they need support to ensure all off lead encounters are supported by their handlers. Tex can be left for short periods. Tex could live with another settled dog. Not bad with cats! Awareness around visiting and running children as he doesn't understand children, though has good intentions.Video: Tex plays with his toy Video: Tex Hide & seek with Murphy Video: Tex playing in the Hay to music Video: Tex PlayingHis Story:
Tex came into the pound as a 3 month old puppy, was homed for a short period with a devoted owner who had him off lead and adored him but was leaving for long periods crated returned him. Tex doesn't cope in kennels so has had a premium foster place with a trainer and he has come on leaps and bounds. Tex is neutered, chipped and vax'd. Currently in foster in Milton Keynes, Bucks.Advert:
Tex just send him a Text saying ... “Be Mine!” Tex is young and with guiding ethos he has shone through. In foster Tex has shone by walking to heel, being left overnight downstairs and during the day free range with no destruction. Tex needs a garden/ He delights in dog companionship on his walks although he can get confused with hyped up dogs which in truth he wants to play with. Tex is a Super Star!
Tex is a "Whippetty" 2 year old Staffie of slight stature, tenderness in his eyes and affectionate. Tex loves to be stroked and cuddled especially on the sofa. Tex is emotional and has missed out on so much in his early life but now trained, socialised and is a dear, dear soul. He can become a little leapy and spin in kennels but we do everything we can to keep him out. Tex thrives on praise and is succeeds in all areas of his life. Tex is delighting in the fun of learning and pleasing.

***PLEASE NOTE: We are a rescue finding dogs their forever homes. We usually ask for a minimum donation of £175 at the time of adoption, for each dog, to help us continue helping homeless dogs***See Tex 's Thread Below: Watch his progress through our RescueReferral Info: Hi Lynne, I'm emailing to ask a favour- I understand if you cannot help as I know you're chokka with dogs from all angles but worth an ask. Do you have any room for Tex, the pup? (Below)
The little chap was surrendered by his owner who was a young lad who loved him to pieces- he let me neuter and chip him, but he called me so upset because the landlord then said he had to remove the dog :-( So i took him in and promised the lad I'd look after him and find him a decent rescue space. He is just a baby. He is bouncy and does tend to mouth which needs work but he is so sweet and very special because of the circumstances.
Like I say, I understand if not Lynne as you're very busy but wanted to try because I trust you and your rescue.
Kind Regards Tara xxx Dog Warden

Playful lively youngster…very happy and bubbly puppy……loves fuss and attention…..eager to learn…still very young… needs some further training as mouths a little …but easy to sort out…lovely youngster!!!
We took Tex in on the 26th January, he was vet checked and received his 2nd vax. Lovely bouncy boy who needs to be out walking and getting to grips with what life has to offer him. He is tail spinning in his frustration to understand expectations and dealing with his own build up of excess energy. Very me me me in the kennels..bless him lots of walks and attention coming your way Tex.
