Murphy D2014094 - Special appeal

Murphy D2014094

Staffy x | Male - neutered | 2 years old approx | Available | Enlarge picture | Video: Murphy & Lola playing happily together

This gorgeous gent is hoping to find his forever home.

Murphy loves going out for walks and will even lift his paws up so that you can pop his harness on ready. He'll then trot along excitedly, play tug with his toys and sniff everything in sight. One of Murphy's favourite things is a fuss (especially if you give him a good scratch under his velvety soft chin).

This brown eyed, glossy coated beauty loves other dogs and would be perfect for an active family with children aged 15 years or someone with plenty of time and energy, giving him the happy life that he truly deserves.

Ruby D2014008

Ruby D008

Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Female - neutered

2 years 5 months old

Little Ruby has a real zest for life, she is a great mixer with other dogs (particularly with the male pooches). She has lots of energy, walks well on a harness and would love a home with a mature family. Because she can get a little overexcited at times, a calm and steady environment would be better suited to her needs and an owner with experience of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier would be perfect.

Ruby has a gorgeous, shiny, coat and when you look into her loveable eyes, butter wouldn't melt! She responds well to commands, her favourite being sit, stay and come when called.

Ruby has been at our animal centre since January 2014 she was brought into RSPCA by an inspector due to welfare concerns. She really does deserve a tender, loving home and someone exceptional to give her a chance.

Jip W2013067




6 years 8 months old

Available - currently in a foster home.  Please contact centre to arrange viewing.

Jip has her own unique personality! She is affectionate, confident, responds really well to training and picks up new commands quickly.

She loves nothing more than playing with toys whilst she is out on a walk, shortly followed by a cuddle with her favourite pink spongy blanket or a munch on a couple of doggy biscuits.

Her beautiful black and tanned coat is splendidly soft and a good brush and a bath is right up her street!

Jip would be well matched to somebody with familiarity of large breed dog, children over the age of 10 years would benefit her greatly and from being the only dog in her new home.

Chico D2014108

Staffy x

Male - neutered

6 years old

It's Chico time! Though he may be 6 years old, this chap still retains the lovable playfulness of a mere pup (his name, in fact, translates to 'boy' in Spanish, which seems very appropriate!). His excitement at the prospect of a walk is obvious, but don't let his energetic character distract from how loving he is and this is reflected in his eagerness for fuss and attention.

Chico has a real zest for life, he requires some basic training but if you are willing to put in the effort with him you will be generously rewarded with a wonderful friend and companion.

Regrettably, his high energy nature would make him unsuitable for elderly owners or for households with children under 10 years old, whilst he would also be best placed in a home that didn't have existing animals, as they probably wouldn't get along all too well. Otherwise please give Chico some thought as he is deserving of a lovely home and you surely won't regret it.

Toby D2014115


Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Male - neutered

10 months old

Though his pictures may make it look like butter-wouldn't-melt in the mouth of this cheek-pinchingly adorable Staffy and his puppy-dog eyes, but don't be fooled! Young Toby is a naughty, little scamp who likes nothing better than playing the fool and getting into all sorts of mischief. But what he loves even more than playtime, is fuss and attention and if you can provide him with these, then you have a forever friend!

Toby is a veritable firecracker of a dog, a whirling dervish, a jack-in-the-box; full of energy, enthusiasm, and a real lust for life! Were you to adopt this cheeky chappy, we can personally guarantee that boredom would be a thing of the past. As such, he would be best placed with an active owner who can help dissipate some of Toby's vast reserves of energy and rein in his occasional hyperactivity. As a result of his propensity for playfully mouthing people, it is recommended that Toby is rehomed only with families that have older children.

Like any playful pooch, Toby loves the company of other canines and mixes wonderfully with dogs of a similarly active nature. So should you have an existing dog who could perhaps do with a nice, new friend – then our wonderful Staffy would make a lovely, little companion.

Despite his playfulness and sheer adorability, Toby has been stuck with us for a little while now and could really use a chance of a better life, one with plenty of exercise and fuss and attention from an owner who can give him the love he truly deserves.
