Hi my name is Fred t'Dog and I am an extremely cute example of a little white Staffy.
I'm really not looking my best at the moment though. My skin is wrinkled and scared from old wounds that weren't treated. The hair has come off my little pink ears and tail and I'm very thin. I have been quite badly neglected. Despite all this http://www.seniorstaffyclub.co.uk/ tell me I have the most adorable little face and the good news is I don't have any live infections. All my wounds are old so all I need is grooming and TLC really.
I was abandoned in the pound and my time was up. I was even more nervous there than I am now. I did share my kennel with a girl dog at the pound, but since being at the Senior Staffy Club I have been quite nervous and scatty around the other dogs and I bark at them quite a lot so they think I would feel more comfortable as the only pet.
I love humans so very much. I form bonds very quickly and roll on my back for you to tickle my tummy. I would prefer someone who is home lots as I think I will pine for you when we are not together. I get attached to my walkers and I cry when they put me back in my kennel.
As my history is unknown and because I get spooked out quite easily the Senior Staffy Club think I would be better with adult hoomans only or maybe older sensible children who know how to act around a nervous dog.
I pull on the lead a bit on the way out for walks but soon calm down once I've burnt some energy off. I love my walks, especially nice long ones. I love splashing in puddles and rolling in mud messy boy that I am. I'm a good boy at the vets too. I get a bit stressed in the car but my friends at the Senior Staffy Club are working on that with me.
I'm quite a scared little boy but I love people and if you sit with me I love to sit on your lap and cuddle up close. I think I will make a great best friend. If you are lonely and need special Fred cuddles and tummy rubs please call Charlene on 07771 914 583.
Please call soon I really don't like it kennels I am so lonely, I would love to be cuddled up on the sofa with you.
Love and tummy rubs,
Fred T'Dog xxx

goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
