Home offered

We have a smallholding of 4.5 acres and both work from home. There is almost always someone at home and we have very few visitors, never any children. Our lifestyle is relaxed and quiet and all our animals are treated as our family.

Current animals

All our animals are calm, quiet and live in harmony with each other. We currently have the following;
2 male GSDs (11 and 7 years old), both neutered
3 cats (all dog savvy)
4 horses (all retired)
9 free range chickens
2 Harvest mice
Wild ducks come into the garden

Animal experience

I've had animals most of my life and have fostered / adopted many, including from the RSPCA, The Mayhew Animal Home, Hereford & Worcester Dog Rescue, German Shepherd Dog Rescue, UK German Shepherd Rescue, as well as private individuals.

Vet References

I have excellent vet references.

Preferred dog

I'd prefer an older dog (10+ years) and am even willing to take on a dog who is close to the end of his life, to give him a loving, secure and settled home for whatever time he has left. I'd prefer a male dog who has been neutered. I love GSDs and SBTs but am open to any breed and any size. I need a dog who is not drawn to water, as we have a small river as one of our boundaries.

Please get in touch with me if you need a home for a dog that would fit with what I have to offer.

Thank you so much xx

Oh gosh this sounds a wonderful offer.Have you had a look at Oldies website - they post their own dogs there as well as older dogs from other rescues
Where are you based and how far would you be willing to travel for a dog?

There are quite a few specialist staffie rescues (and GSD rescues) arround the country - perhaps worth phoning or e-mailing them to ask them to keep a look out for you and contact you when they get an older, cat-friendly dog come into the rescue. Its not always clear or easy to scroll through all the dogs descriptions to find the right dog - but if you speak to the rescue direct they will know if they have a dog to suit. With new dogs coming in daily the right dog for you will hopefully turn up sooner or later.

Senior Staffie Club is fantastic

There certainly isn't any shortage of SBT (or GSD for that matter) in rescue, sadly.
Good for you for wanting to adopt one. (Personally I love them, would have them all if I could)
