ROXY is a 5yr old, smallish Staffie who loves her humans to bits. She is a typical, lively, friendly girl who will be your best friend forever! Roxy will need to be an only dog, as she’s not good with other dogs, nor is she good with cats, but is fine with people of all ages. She loves her walks & playing with her toys & her recall is quite good. When Roxy came in she had very dry skin, due in part, to the fact that her previous owner kept her in a T-shirt type coat all the time, but since she has been with us, we have removed the coat & her skin & coat are now back to normal. Roxy will need good quality food in her diet so that her skin remains in good condition, but other than that – she will be a wonderful, loving addition to any family.
At least 68 Staffies are put to sleep every day in the UK because irresponsible people won’t stop breeding, and there are already so many in rescues. That’s 476 a week, 1,904 a month & 24,820 a year! Please consider giving one of these lovely dogs a family to love forever. Don't believe everything you hear about this fabulous, friendly, loving breed. Come and see for yourself.

COULD YOU OFFER A HOME TO A RESCUE DOG WHILE WE FIND ITS' FOREVER HOME ?
We are looking for dog-friendly people to join our band of dedicated fosterers to foster our rescue dogs, so that they can learn to live in a home environment instead of kennels. We will always be available for any back up should it be required, and will carry out a home check prior to you fostering the dog.
A sad fact of life is that dogs do go missing from time to time. By having an ID tag on your dog's collar stating your name, address and telephone number, you can save your dog the unnecessary stress of a pound visit. It will also keep you on the right side of the law, as even if your dog is microchipped, your dog is required to wear an ID tag when in a public place. Failure to do so can result in up to a £5,000 fine! Stray dogs can only be picked up by dog wardens, NOT the police or rescues so the first person to contact if you've lost your dog (or if you find a stray dog) is your local dog warden.
Although it is not yet a legal requirement (except as required by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991), it is always a good idea to have your dog micro-chipped with its own unique identification number. This way you can be traced quickly and your dog returned safe and sound.
Under Section 2 of the Control of Dogs Order 2002, every dog on a highway or in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on it or on a plate or badge attached to it. Failure to do so is an offence against the Animal Health Act 1981 for which an owner can be prosecuted and fined.
Any dog without a collar on a highway or in a public place may be treated as a stray dog and seized by the Local Authority.
If your dog strays, you should contact your local dog warden (through the Environmental Health Department of your Local Authority) immediately and stay in regular contact. If your dog is found by the Local Authority, you must pay the Local Authority's reasonable expenses before it will be returned to you.
If after seven days, the owner of the stray dog does not come forward, the Local Authority may transfer the dog to someone else, transfer it to an establishment for stray dogs ( or in some areas, have it destroyed ).
If you are the finder of a stray dog you must either return it to its owner immediately or take it to your Local Authority. If you want to keep the stray dog, you must provide your name and address to the Local Authority and keep the dog for a period of not less than one month.
NB. Under Section 27(5) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to have a dog on a designated road without the dog being on a lead.
