Texx's Story: Texx was found stray/abandoned and unclaimed within a Midlands council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Texx is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Texx is in boarding kennels near Guildford whilst he awaits his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

TexX is rather bigger than a STAFFIE and is a very strong boy. He was welcoming and friendly in his kennel and is nice natured with people. TexX was calm and easy to walk for a while, but he did react badly to dogs we passed and I did have to restrain him. Very well behaved pavement walking, then when we reached the woods, he was very pully and seems to have a high chase drive, as he was actively looking for squirrels and almost pulled me over several times, so some work needed in this area. Back in his kennel he reverted to a soppy, cuddly boy. Just a bit excited out and about at the moment.

Texx is much dinkier than I was expecting - I walked past his kennel looking for a much bigger dog! Texx greeted me like a friend and was super easy to harness. For a smaller dog I was surprised that he could be so strong on the lead. So we went to the paddock first where he got a good stretch of the legs and then we headed for a walk by the river. Texx did eventually settle into our walk and let me take a couple of photos. Very handsome boy with the sunshine showing off his beautiful colouring love4.gif

Here's some photos of Texx the staffie taken today. It was my first time walking him, and he was friendly and quiet, and he accepted any attention, cuddling him and playing with his face was fine, he was just happy to be enjoying the fresh air and exploring the world.

Texx has stolen my heart. I have been walking him lots recently for Inductions to show people how to deal with a stronger dog on the lead and a dog that can be doggo reactive. Texx has been just wonderful. We have walked with other RR dogs one infront of the other and in parrallel! He has walked past other non-RR dogs without barking and staying nicely by my side.

He is incredibly affectionate and just loves a cuddle. He is also one of the easiest dogs to harness in the kennels at Guildford...bless him. He gives you soft staffie kisses when you enter his kennel and stands still as us hoomans faff about with coats, harnesses and leads!

I love this boysie and hope his forever home is out there waiting to collect him soon.

As I mentioned, his dog reactivity is something that will need further attention. Just because it has improved greatly doesn't mean that he is 'cured'. He responds well to treats and good management i.e lots of space when passing other dogs and plenty of reassurance. He prefers leading when walking with other doggos.

I took Texx out again today having walked him with Evie last week, again he was the perfect gentleman in his kennel standing still for me to take his coat off and put harness on. Does pull a bit but was well behaved on the lead, was interested in meeting another dog we passed by the river but they went a different way and he didn't want to move on until the other dog was out of sight.
Full of love and gave loads of kisses and cuddles back in the kennel.
