A couple of months ago I came across a post on a dog forum entitled “White Staffy needs home”. If you know me at all you’ll know that I’m a total sucker for bull breeds, white ones especially! I had a read, asked some questions, gave some advice and then reminded myself that we have enough dogs. A few weeks later I checked back and the owner had not had any luck finding her dog Sam a place with a rescue group. I decided to see if I could help. I contacted Wendy from Golder Retriever Rescue [who used to be my dog trainer and will be the lucky recipient of Chopper if anything should ever happen to myself and Dave!] and I asked her if she could temperament test Sam the Staffy and then list him on Pet Rescue if she thought he was suitable for rehoming. We met at a park and everything went fine and all his paperwork is up-to-date so he was listed that evening. The plan was for me to take some photos that day too, but the heavens opened so I had to wait until today to fit them in.
At the time of writing this blog post Sam’s profile has had 260 views, but no inquiries. He is a lovely dog that will make someone a really excellent pet. He currently lives with another male Staffy and they’ve never fought. However, Sam is a resource guarder so if he was to be rehomed with another dog it would need to be a submissive one. His owner’s living situation has changed. Their son is able to take Choc, but he can only have one dog so Sam needs to find somewhere asap. He loves all people and he’s great with kids. He’s been to the off-lead beach lots of times and he has no problems with other dogs. He is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and has a clean bill of health. If you know someone that could give Sam a new home, please share this link, time is running out.
UPDATE: Stafford Rescue Victoria have offered to take him. He’ll be traveling to Melbourne next Saturday. His new Pet Rescue profile with their contact details is here. Please note, although he has secured a spot in rescue he still needs a home, so keep spreading the word if you can!
ANOTHER UPDATE: Sam was just featured on the Pedigree Adoption Drive page on Facebook. Fingers crossed the exposure will help find him the perfect home!
