Homing Requirements: Saffy came to us in a near death state. She is fully recovered but her hip joints were affected so she is on painkillers and needs restricted exercise one 15 min. walk a day, shouldn't do stairs and kept 'light weight' (is currently on a diet). Saffy can be wary of children so needs an adult home. She hates closed crates. Most comfortable as a only pet. She is excited by cats and squirrels so needs a secure garden ideally 6' fencing. Ideally her family would only use kennels in an emergency.
Her Story: Found stray in starved state: chipped: owner passed her on a year, have her vet details (history) age and name. to being found stray. Had lived with another Staffie. Saffy now in foster in Hampton.
Advert: Saffy is a truly special lovely character. She cares for you; understands and converses. She doesn't like mornings; rain or snow and needs persuasion to go in the garden on such days but holds; very good housetraining. Saffy uses either an open crate or dog bed; sofa or armchair to relax on. Saffy gets wary behind a grid as though she has been taunted in the past. She snuffles but not barky! She understands houserules. We are looking for an inclusive family situation where she is spoilt in all the best ways. She also is excited with cats or squirrels. She LOVES footballs.
Saffy has a velvety orange brindle fur with a beautiful head and is 7 yrs old. Saffy loves people and can accept dogs in her territory once introduced outside on neutral territory. She is keen of food! She is very gentle in taking treats. She loves company but can be left does the bends on your return! She loves play, expressing fun and love. Saffy is a rescue favourite so only special families need apply!

Referral Letter: Hi Lynne, Ok, I went to the pound today. I did see another brindle bitch, she needs some help, you'll see what I mean from the pictures.....She is older looking and is a lovely girl. She is calm and friendly, loves a fuss. They tried her with another dog and she wasn't too bad. Bless her, the young bitch wanted to play with her and she just didn't want to know so was a bit grumbly with her but I think she would be ok with a calm dog and good introductions.
She has hair loss round her rump and tail, the skin is dry and toughened. She is such a nice girl.......
Please can you help her??
