Abi

Staffies have a completely undeserved reputation for ferocity, and there is no better example of how wrong those stereotypes are than one little glance at our sweetie pie Abi! This portly pooch is so laid back and lovely, so soft and squishy, and so amazingly Abi!

Though she might be a little long in the tooth, Abi is still a very playful pooch, who gets a giddy and excited when you initiate playtime - she bounces around with a smile permanently set upon her face, just like a much younger pooch! This beautiful terrier is sure to make you smile, just imagine seeing her smiling face every morning waiting for some fuss and loving - it makes your heart flutter, doesn't it?

Our gorgeously stout Abi is an unutterably delightful older lady with a wonderfully steady temperament, as such, she would be well suited to most any home environment - excluding those with very young children. She is suitable with other animals providing that introductions are done gradually and sensibly.

So if you have a gap in your heart that can be adequately filled by a loving, playful, round, little pooch, then Abi might just be the dog for you. Please come and see her, she needs and deserves such a wonderful home - it could be you, and you certainly wouldn't regret it!

What a remarkably handsome boy Zue is! Like a canine David Beckham, this gorgeous Akita X really turns heads when he enters a room. From nose to tail, he is a truly delightful young dog with a tremendous elegance, especially when he is running around our exercise area and the wind is flowing through his luscious hair! In spite of his dreamy looks, Zue came into us following a period of neglect at his previous home, whereby he was left in a hazardous garden environment, and so this young chap could really do with a loving, safe home - a basic right that Zue has seemingly lacked in his short life so far.

In terms of his character, Zue is a very playful, happy and energetic dog with a love of being in the great outdoors, he is never happier than when he is allowed to stretch his legs and really show off his athleticism and playfulness. Though he is a strong boy, he does walk nicely on a canny collar (or similar), as well as being good with commands, and he loves his treats - for which he will do anything!

Zue would be best placed in a home without any existing animals and with children aged 13 years and above, as his size and energy would perhaps prove a little much for very young kids. He would also prefer an owner experienced with large breeds, who has the patience and time to give him the basic training that he needs.

If this sounds like a dog who would make you happy, then come down and see him - as we're sure you can make him very happy too. This youngster hasn't had the best of starts in life, please can you make sure that the rest of his days are spent in a much happier and loving environment. He will be more than worth the effort!

Mimi

Whilst watching one of those many nature shows set in the wildernesses of Russia, Canada, or similar, have you ever wondered what it would feel like to caress the thick, comfy fur of a bear – but didn't want to risk life and limb in doing so? If so, then the unmistakably bear-like Mimi – and her magnificently snug coat - could be just the dog for you! This Akita is a truly eye-catching sight, in fact the English language really doesn't possess the words required to accurately portray Mimi's staggering beauty – Shakespeare himself would have been thoroughly tongue-tied!

She is, however, a rather aloof character who is not one for constant fuss and attention, preferring to spend some time pursuing her own interests. Her nature does change somewhat when there are treats involved, and you can watch as her beautiful eyes light up as soon as these little incentives are offered. In spite of her occasional aloofness, she will sit wonderfully and thoroughly enjoys getting her back-end scratched.

The main issue with Mimi is her intolerance of other dogs, and this would mean that she should only go to a household where she will not encounter other pooches – though considering her size there would scarcely be room for another dog anyways! Due to her size, she would be best placed with families that have only older children, but would otherwise be fine in most any home environment, especially those with knowledge of the Akita breed. Her new owner must also be willing to give her the opportunity to stretch her legs regularly and keep her glorious coat in sparkling condition.

Mimi would make a wonderful pet for anyone who is willing to work upon her foibles, and they would be rewarded with a truly remarkable dog.

Lola

Though she may be scared of her own shadow, Lola has loads of love to offer the right owner, and once you get past her timid exterior you will find an exceptionally charming and lovely little pooch. When she first came into the centre, Lola was very scared of her overwhelming new surroundings and the large number of canine neighbours - but over the proceeding weeks, Lola has made tremendous progress and is really starting to come out of her shell. From being a quivering little ball at the back of her kennel, she now comes forwards to say "hello!" - even if she is still quite unsure of new people and situations. When she knows you, this gorgeous wee Staffy will come up to you asking for fuss and cuddles and really just someone who can offer her the support that a nervous girl like her needs.

Due to her fearful nature, Lola would be best placed with mature families - those with children aged 15+ - as well ideally being an only pet. If you do meet these criteria, and are looking for wonderful dog who you can love and be loved by, then Lola could be perfect.

Her ideal owner would be somebody who has a good deal of patience and so would be willing to undertake the gradual process of gaining Lola's trust and allowing her to display her true, bouncy nature. Furthermore, they would be experienced with dogs of a similar character and so be best placed to guide her through the potentially stressful experience of moving into a new environment. So please if you are interested in this delightful girl, please contact the animal centre as soon as possible.
