Jellybean, like her namesake, is so sweet! She is looking for a special home to reach her full potential. She is deaf and will need a committed owner who can work with our Training and Behaviour Team, for this reason we are looking for someone who has experience with rescue dogs and in particular Staffordshire Bull Terriers. She only came into our care due to a change in her owners circumstances and we are confident that with the right home environment and an understanding owner, she will make a fantastic addition to her next home.
Jellybean is looking for a home where she can be the main focus so being the only pet is important. She would also need to live with children over the age of 16 years. A quieter home environment would be best to help her settle initially as she can get overwhelmed quite easily. Part of her ongoing training will be based around calm behaviours. Once she knows you, she is very affectionate and loves to sprawl across your lap whenever possible. She could be left alone for up to 6 hours once settled and was housetrained in her last home.
Jellybean can be worried around dogs and some traffic, being deaf she cannot hear them approaching, so it would benefit her to walk in quieter, less built up areas. She must be kept on lead when out in public to keep her safe as she has no recall. Having direct access to her own private garden with 5.5ft fence is a must to give her some space to enjoy off lead time. She will make a great companion and her owner will have a huge reward at the end of their project, coming home to a happy Jellybean every night. Applications for Jellybean will close when we have found a suitable home. Due to current travel restrictions we are looking for a home within 30 minutes of the centre.
