Handsome River is now ready for his forever home
River is 5 years old and had spend almost 2 years in a shelter in Cyprus. He had no chance of being adopted in Cyprus so he was flown over to our Rehab centre in Atherstone last year
River is a fun loving, bouncy bundle of joy! He is house trained and currently goes walking with another dog (a bitch). One of his kennel neighbours is a boy and there are no issues, however sometimes on walks he can react to other dogs - but this is easily manageable with treats!
River is a Staffie cross and has all the typical personality of one, fun loving, cheeky and simply wants to be next to his humans, with his amazing smile and zest for life.
He is strong and pulls a little when first out walking but soon settles down and walks well and responds to his name . He likes a lie-in so you wouldn’t need to be up at the crack of dawn to go for a walk! He is very loving and loves fuss and would suit an active family or a couple with time to spare him, as he is a very intelligent dog and quick to learn. He would make a wonderful and loyal companion.
He loves his toys and likes to keep a stash of toys in his bed! River will be better suited to a home as an only dog, where he can meet other dogs whilst out on walks. He could live with older teens who are used to dogs. He can’t live with cats or small furries.
He needs a secure, private garden for him to have fun and run around in.
