6/10/21 – Fletch has been rehomed!
Fantastic face-washer Fletch is looking for a calm, steady and quiet home where he won’t be left for long periods. He’s in the care of Senior Staffy Club and enjoying the comforts of a foster home in the Stafford area while he waits to go to his forever home.
Fletch is 10 years old and he is a very loving boy who is eager to please. He is obedient, house-trained and now asks to go out when he needs to. He will stay off furniture if he is told to and only gets up when asked. He has not picked up anything off the floor that isn’t his and only picks up his own toys. As he can be quite excitable and mouth a little at first, older children aged 12+ would be best in a pet-free home. He’d like a home with a garden so he can run after his Kong! Fletch can need reassurance and guidance, so an owner who has the experience to build his confidence calmly would be of benefit and people who don’t mind the occasional face wash from him!
Fletch loves his Kong and his Nylabone and will let you throw the Kong for as long as you are happy to. He sleeps well at night and, at the moment, he has his own bed in the carer’s bedroom. Once he has his goodnight treat and is tucked in, you don’t hear from him till the morning. Although he is 10, Fletch is a very lively boy and can sometimes be a little over enthusiastic with his kisses. Food is the love of Fletch’s life, followed a close second by his beloved Kong.
Fletch can be excitable when he first meets someone but soon calms down. He likes to sit next to you in the evening, but he is also happy to do his own thing when you are around and isn’t clingy. Time is being built up when Fletch is being left in the house. He will need time to settle and patience in building up leaving time in a new home.
Fletch is loving, enthusiastic, eager to please, and led by his his love of food which makes training easier. He will sit to have his harness and lead on and walks nicely on the lead with only the occasional pull when something interests him. Fletch will walk past other dogs on the other side of the road with no issues and is happy to stand in an area with other dogs as long as there is some space and the other dogs are not bothering him. Fletch can react to dogs if they get too close to him and will bark and pull towards the other dog, but as Fletch is not a large dog (18kg), he is easy to move away and easy to distract with his love of treats. Fletch is not a dog that could be let off-lead or be in an area with off-lead dogs. He does love his walks though and can’t wait to go out for as long as you like. Fletch is getting used to travelling in the car and will sit on the back seat in his harness.
Fletch came into care with a cough for which he was on steroids but with no diagnosis. He has had an X-ray to investigate the cause and he has been diagnosed with Bronchitis. This cannot be cured but is easily managed with steroids. Fletch takes two a day at the moment and currently has no cough. Fletch has also had a small cyst removed from his back leg which was benign. He has been neutered.
