Nancy (Boxer and Bully Saviours, fostered Dumfries)

Nancy is a gorgeous 11 year old Staffy Cross girl who is in the care of Boxer and Bully Saviours. She did find a home but needs to find a new place once more. She is in a temporary foster home in Dumfries, Scotland, but the rescue is hoping to find Nancy a permanent foster home as soon as possible – in the North of England or in Scotland. As a lifetime foster dog, Nancy will have her vet bills covered by Boxer and Bully Saviours, for life.

Nancy hasn’t had the best of lives as she was used for breeding and spent many years starved of affection. Nancy now wants to be loved, snuggled and adored sufficiently to make up for all those sad years. She absolutely loves to be with people but can be wary of strangers and doesn’t like them leaving, but you just have to be firm with her and at home perhaps put her in another room while people leave.

Nancy would love a home with someone who is around a lot of the time, although her fosterer left her in the house without problems. Nancy is housetrained and a very clean girl who lets you know when she needs to go out.

Nancy’s temporary fosterers told us: “Nancy is very food orientated and she loves her toys and likes to play. She also loves to relax. She enjoys sleeping on the sofa, in the bed, and even in her own bed too!

Sweet Nancy would love a quiet household, due to her age, and especially as she has arthritis. Boxer and Bully Saviours will cover the cost of Nancy’s arthritis medication for life, which is why she is looking for a home as a lifetime foster dog.

She obviously doesn’t need lots of exercise, but she does enjoy a leisurely stroll and would be great for someone who doesn’t want to walk too far. Nancy is fine when passing dogs out on walks but she doesn’t like it when they get too close to her. As she likes her own space, Nancy would prefer to be your only dog. She hasn’t been cat tested but it is presumed that she wouldn’t be a fan of cats.

Could you offer Nancy a comfortable home full of love, playtime and snuggles on the sofa?
