Timmy Staffie x DofB ?2018 RRemedies Centre

Current Status: Available
Timmy's Story: Timmy was found abandoned and unclaimed within a council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Timmy is neutered, chipped, and undergo vaccinations. Timmy is coming in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only contact you if we have a suitable dog. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum Adoption Donation is £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). 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 in particular. 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.
Timmy's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: Hi Lynne, This chap is still looking for a Rescue Placement He came in on 4/3/24 and he has until 25/4/24

Since we last sent his details, we believe him to be around 5 years, he is very independent and prefers to do his own thing, he is fine next to dogs in the exercise areas and has walked on a lead next to dogs with no issues.
He has started to be reactive in his kennel to any new strangers walking past but if you open his kennel and let him out he is a good boy. Much better with a slip lead (does not like them tight) but happier walked on his harness.

As always if you can help please get in touch asap.

Thank you Ryan

Timmy came into RescueRemedies on the 21st April 24

Lynne got Timmy out and we walked together around the site. He took a treat nicely but seemed to get a bit over focused on them (Lynne suggested verbal praise) so he was better without treats and just verbal praise with a quiet, calm voice.
He walks so nicely on the lead and was very courteous about waiting when I was trampling around in the mud. Not sure how socialised he is as when people came near he just stood completely still and stared, but I had moved us out of the way to let the people pass so maybe he was just staying put? He enjoyed a good sniff and a gentle walk. Well done Timmy. Such a nice boy. love4.gif

Timmy was out with Kiera yesterday and behaving beautifully. He was quite relaxed with Kiera, and was sitting patiently while she was chatting, when I met them. Timmy was keen to say hello and walk alongside me across the road so I could do his photoshoot. He was soon busy sniffing in the grass but I got his attention with treats. However, my treats were obviously substandard and he rejected them. So I tried the squeaker instead and had more success holding his attention. He then did a sit when asked, and again waited patiently until we had finished. With a kind, gentle approach, Timmy will thrive. He is a lovely, gentle natured boy.

2nd time out with Timmy and in my experience he's a nice friendly dog. We had a walk then went to the paddock. He spent most of his time next to me being stroked. You can hardly feel him on the lead and he didn't seem that bothered about other dogs.
