We’ve recently sent a £150 donation to East Midlands Dog Rescue to help fund the care of 2 staffies they have taken in to their care for rehoming.
Although EMDR are not normally a staffie focused rescue, usually working with Lurchers as you can see from the dogs needing homes page, the rescue is currently helping 2 staffies that are considered ‘hard to rehome’ due to their age/health issues, so we wanted to help fund their care.
The 2 dogs are Sasha, a female Staffie with health and separation anxiety issues (she’s not up for rehoming yet), and Jarvis, an older boy who doesn’t get on with other dogs:
9 year old brindle Staffie
Why has Jarvis been in rescue for over a year? Well, his crime was….. to be born a Staffie…….Like hundreds of these over-bred little dogs, Jarvis is overlooked by people who are wary of taking them on. Jarvis is the most lovable, sweet natured old boy you could ever imagine with people – here comes the BUT….he doesn’t always like other dogs.
Solution to this problem:
Do you only want one pet? Yes!
When you are out walking will you ‘respect’ other people’s pets and keep Jarvis on a lead? Yes!
Well it isn’t rocket science after all – SIMPLES
Take a Staffie home…Enjoy the benefits of this loving breed. Be RESPONSIBLE when out in public. Now …Give this boy a home …PLEASE!
If you’d like to find out more about Sasha and Jarvis or would like to support EMDR please visit the East Midlands Dog Rescue website for more info and do what you can to help! Thank you
