Wanted: Ideally a Red (but would consider white, blue or black) Staffie or Staffie cross -

Here's our family's fact file:

Grown Up Fact File:

2 dog experienced adults (ranging from cross breeds to Rottweillers)
Not Staffie experienced though.

2 full time workers.
Female can come home at lunch and stays at home one morning during the working week.
Male has the possibility to work from home a couple of days a week but this might not be till later in the year.

Excersise - Walking is loved by both adults and both run regularly too.

Kid Fact file:

2 dog happy and savvy children aged 10 and 13

Cat Fact file:

2 lovely, social moggies aged just 1yrs - NOT at all dog savvy
Love their hugs and fuss
Mr T - despite his name is a bit of a wuss and would probably frighten easily

Home Fact file:

In Derbyshire - but could travel for the right dog

An enclosed garden but not escape proof for the average dog escape artist.
Main road to he fornt of the property - gate to the pavement - but again not suited the escape artist or thrill seeker.

Opposite brilliant walking country.


P.S We are willing to wait for the right dog for us and to be the right family for it

Hi there smile.gif

How wonderful and how refreshing to read that you want a Staffie or a Staffie X, very well done to you and your family.

We are a good way from you unfortunately (although we rehome nationwide and there are quite a few of our dogs in Derbyshire), but if you don't mind travelling just the once it wouldn't be too bad wink.gif . (For people living at a distance we arrange their homecheck before they travel.)

Please take a look at our lovely Staffies and if any of them appeal to you please let me know and we can see if he/she would be suitable for you all and also get him/her cat tested. (I'm afraid though that we could not rehome a puppy with you because of your working hours, sorry.)

Here is a link to our dogs needing homes:

Many thanks
Jo
