We are seeking a special foster home for a special lady.
Bess is 10 years old, has a wonderful personality, is great company and very affectionate.
She needs a long term foster home to spend her retirement in with someone who is around most of the day.
She adores people, children of all ages but would be happier in a home with older children. She does enjoy the finer things in life such as going for a stroll, peace and quiet and a snooze!
Dont be fooled though as she likes a good natter (talk!) throughout the day and will happily keep you entertained with her antics.
She is best suited to someone who is around most of the day but can cope with being left 2-3 hours.
Bess is fine with other dogs but nervous of cats and is a happy traveller in the car.
She is speyed, vaccinated & microchipped.
If you think you can help please contact the rescue for further details on 07544001099 OR

Staffordshire Bull Terriers and SBT crosses are being overbred meaning that every year thousands of them are left without homes, ending up in Council Pounds or Rescue centres and some suffering an even worse fate: being 'put to sleep' simply because they have nowhere to go.
