Dexter was found abandoned on a highway by a person passing through. Although he was chipped and his owner contacted they had rehomed him some time ago. The owner tried to contact the new person but she denied any knowledge of ownership. The original owner did not want him back as they already had other dogs. He is a very typical staffy who needs to be with love and protect his owner and would make a great companion. He gets on with other similar dogs and is very good with people although I would not trust him with a cat. He is now desexed microchip and vaccinated ready for his new home.
HappyPaws Haven is fussy about who adopts these animals and where they are housed and cared for. The adoption criteria is documented as a questionnaire and strictly adhered to. We do not adopt animals to people who rent unless they are long term rental at the same address and have landlords written permission.
We ask if they have thought about the attributes they want in a dog, lifestyle, childrens ages, prepared to train, etc. We also talk about responsible pet ownership, fully fenced yards, hours unattended etc. and finally a vet reference.
