Homing requirements: Smiler could be homed with another dog. He needs a family who can stand there for him as an older Staffie with all the Staffie prejudice you meet. He meets most dogs well outside but can get flustered so confidence behind his lead keeps the boat steady. Not for small furries (Hamsters OK), small dogs or cats. Can be left, not an "off lead" dog as introductions need to be supervised and good in the car.

His Story: Smiler was found stray together with a bitch Staffie. She was homed separately from the pound. We couldn't see him all alone in his kennel so squeezed him in! He is fostered with a crossbreed pup. Smiler has been up for the play, be it 'controlled'. Smiler came in neutered and chipped. He has begun vax.

Advert: Smiler will have you smiling. He has a certain twinkle in his eye as he follows you around or gainfully employs himself is any activity on offer or entertains himself with a ball or a toy. Chuckle you will and chuck his ball you will..and he'll enjoy the chase and really relate to the fun aspect. Smiler meets dogs well with confidence behind him but can get over excited by little dogs so he needs to be retained on a lead and introductions controlled through voice and brisk continuity of direction on his walk then he refocuses on the blue horizon.

Smiler is an older Staffie about 5 years old with a little greying on his muzzle. A smaller brindle Staffie who will bond in with his family deeply and they will delight in his little character. He loves his walks but settles easily on return. He isn't food focused but enjoys the drama of treats and takes them very gently. He loves cuddles and face washes in return if allowed. What more could you ask for!

Please visit Smiler's thread, in Dogs needing homes in Foster on our forum http://rescueremedies.myfastforum.org/sutra36420.php#36420 to find out more about him and follow his progress.

If you are interested in re-homing please complete our homing questionnaire https://rescueremedies.wufoo.com/forms/r7x3s5/ so we can ensure our dogs are matched and will suit your circumstances/lifestyle.

A little summary:
Smiler is a people dog, very affectionate, sensitive and obedient once he got to know and trust you and would benefit from someone who is home most of the time. He takes treats ever so gently.

Sometimes he can be a bit hand shy, which could indicate that he has had a bad experience in the past. However, he has never growled or shown any signs of aggression towards us, visitors or people we've met while out.

He likes a good bone, enjoys his toys and doesn't mind it if you take them away at all. Happily he will catch a ball and return it to you. He just doesn't like to share with other dogs, but most dogs don't like to share a yummy bone or precious ball really!

Smiler enjoys his walks, but is very calm in the house and garden. He loves sunbathing and hates the rain. Smiler knows a few basic commands, but doesn't always recognise his name ... it also could be selective hearing though Smile

Smiler never showed any interest in our hamsters and probably could live with small animals as long as they are in a secure cage/hutch and he had no access to them.

Smiler is a real character. Not as bouncy as a puppy, but far away from behaving like an older dog. The perfect age. Once you have met him you will fall in love.

We really hope that Smiler will find a loving forever home soon. Good luck little boy!
