There’s always a large number of Staffies in urgent need of rescue backup (and usually at serious risk of euthanisation), but every now and then an even sadder case occurs such as this – a 17 year old dog abandoned by his owner and now at risk of being put to sleep.
Mutley’s info was posted on Rescue Helpers Unite 2 weeks ago and his appeal is getting more and more urgent as the days roll by. There’s been no offers of rescue backup yet but ourselves (Staffie Support) and All Dogs Matter have both offered to contribute to his neutering costs if rescue backup can be found.
This old boy deserves to live out his last years in a comfortable home with owners that care. If you can help in any way at all please log on to RHU and post on his thread in the poundies needing backup section, or contact All Dogs Matter.
(Perhaps you know a rescue who can help, would like to donate to keep him alive or know someone who would be able to adopt Mutley? Please contact ADM and FAST!)
AND PLEASE CROSSPOST TO HELP MUTLEY

Owner is known to Dog warden ..always let out to stray…didn’t claim him back this time, and enough is enough. Past his time and OK to go now..but is very urgent that we get him out quickly ..otherwise may go to be PTS.
Good bodily condition. Good with people and cats! Can be snappy with some dogs..needs to go to home where he is the only dog…for best placement. Likes treats, not really into toys. Lovely older chap! Doesn’t respond to any commands though. ??deaf?? Clean in his kennel! Loves company and cuddles!!
Still very active for his age you really wouldn’t think that he was 17 years old!!!! Really sweet old boy ..despite his aversion to some dogs (but manageable) …could be because he feels vulnerable in his senior years and cant see/hear as well as he used to
