Staffies for Adoption in London

February 28, 2014 on 2:20 pm | In Tips and Advice | No Comments

If you are looking to rehome a dog in London, please consider adopting one of the Staffies currently in the care of the RSPCA.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers (Staffies) are possibly the most misunderstood breed in the UK. Often seen in the possession of groups of young men and even featured on posters and adverts about antisocial behaviour, Staffies are widely perceived as tough, dangerous dogs.

Their large, muscular torso and shoulders and their broad faces do make them look as though they are a breed suited to patrolling estates and guarding property. Staffies are often chosen as pets by young people who quickly tire of them when they fail to turn out to be frothing, vicious dogs consistent with the reputation that their owners want to create. Those owners then abandon or neglect their Staffy because in fact Staffies are much happier lolling around at home with a family, curled up on the sofa with loving owners or playing in the park. They make very loyal and loving pets that like nothing better than being in the heart of a caring family unit.

The discrepancy between their physical appearance (and public perception of their characters) and their natural disposition means that there are many, many Staffies in need of a loving home. They fall between two stools: they look too ‘tough’ for many families to consider adopting them, and they act too ‘soft’ for people who want a guard dog.

Sometimes Staffies can be difficult to train or keep in a family home because they have previously suffered ill treatment at the hands of previous owners. But many can be helped with specialist behaviour therapy provided by the RSPCA whilst others have survived previous bad experiences with little ill effect on their ability to settle into a new home.

Specialist workers in the animal shelters run by the RSPCA can advise anyone looking to rehome a dog in London and elsewhere in the UK as to which dogs can be safely adopted into which home. Some Staffies and other dogs can only be successfully rehomed into a family with no children, whilst others thrive best in homes where there are children to play with.

If you are interested in rehoming a dog in London or elsewhere in the UK please consider searing through the RSPCA’s site to find Staffies in need of homes in your area.

If you decide to buy rather than adopt, make sure you buy from a reputable breeder and meet the mother (and, if possible, the father) of your puppy. From the personality of the parent(s) and the conditions in which the puppy is being kept you will get a good idea of how well socialised it is and what sorts of traits your puppy is going to have. But remember that buying a puppy from a breeder encourages further breeding by increasing demand, leaving many abandoned Staffies in need of rehoming.
