Medium Male Staffy Dog
- Rescue group:
- Forever Friends Animal Rescue
- PetRescue ID:
Sweet boy Elvis is a 7-year-old Staffy who loves to be loved. He is up and ready for his walk in the morning (unless you have a sleep in, then he is happy to lay in bed and cuddle) and loves to be walked at least 2 to 3 times a day. As we are just getting used to being around other dogs, he loves to sit across from the dog park and watch with curiosity. He loves his pats and cuddles – although he doesn’t enjoy being picked up! He will do absolutely anything for food and enjoys being trained with treats. He will absolutely adore you if you give him the chance to. He loves naps on his dog bed and his humans bed, and will wiggle up onto the couch if you allow him to. Elvis needs a single animal home as he is just getting used to dogs (definitely no cats). He seems to be fine with smaller children but due to his strength we would recommend that all kids be in their teens or above. He gets along with all humans, although he does seem to do best with a single person walking him or giving him instructions as he gets a bit distracted when there is another person involved. We would recommend that Elvis not be let off lead until he is secure with his owner and has had more training around his responsiveness. As he gets distracted easily, walking him solo is the most efficient way and he will listen very well when it’s just him and his owner. Elvis also seems to have some sensitivity to his tail so being aware of where the lead is is important. Elvis’s forever home would ideally be someone who either works from home or works part time and has the ability to keep him inside while they are gone for the day. He would not do well being left outside for long periods of time. Elvis needs someone who is patient and loving and willing to do a bit of training with him each day around dog exposure on his daily walks. He has learned so much in the short time he has been with us so I just know he will continue to flourish with ongoing love and support!
Elvis is happy and healthy desexed microchipped and vaccinated.
