Kia is a 5 month old staffordshire bull terrier cross rottweiler and is currently on foster in cardiff.

The Kia Fact File
Dog status: Good with the dogs she lives with, currently waiting for vaccinations to be assessed with dogs on walks
Cat status: Very good, currently living with 6 cats
Child status: Nervous around people in general, would not be suitable with young children
House training: Work in progress
Home alone: Can be left for short periods and has been crate trained, not suitable for a full time worker.
Basic training: Kia is a blank canvas, she will be starting training classes with her foster mum very soon to get the ball rolling for her new home.


Kia came in to our care following a sheltered start in life. She has not experienced the full wide world and she is a shy and nervous girl as a result. Once she gets to know someone she will warm up and be affectionate but she is shy around new people. She will be looking for a paitent new home who can bring her out of her shell with love and patience. Die to her nervy nature she would not be suitable for a home with young children.

Kia is living with two other dogs as well as her brother Zach and is very good with them. She could be rehomed with canine company or as the only dog.
She is living with 6 cats from the age of 6 months upwards and she is very well behaved with them.

Kia is not yet fully housetrained and this is a work in progress. She has been introduced to a crate and will settle in it nicely when she has been left for short periods by her foster mum.
Please note we do not rehome puppies to full time workers.

Kia is due to begin training classes with her foster mum very soon to lay the foundations for walking nicely on a lead and learning basic manners. It is recommended that her adopter attend training classes for further help and socialisation.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered (if over 6 months), vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped prior to adoption. If a puppy is not old enough to be neutered then this must be carried out at the owner’s expense when old enough, and the relevant form completed by the vet and returned to Hope Rescue. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk
