Champ (RSPCA Macclesfield, fostered Cheshire)

Champ, the Wonder Dog, is a traditional little Staffy who was abandoned in a flat. The owner was traced and found to be hospitalized with Covid. Someone was meant to be seeing to Champ, but his owner signed Champ over to the RSPCA Macclesfield as he was going to be in hospital for some time. Champ is now enjoying life in his foster home in Wilmslow, Cheshire and whoever is lucky enough to take him to his new, forever home will revel in the abundance of love and affection that he gives – a little rub on the back or his belly is all he asks in return.

Champ is an 8 year old, lovely boy who typically likes nothing more than a little human attention, whether you’re sitting on the sofa with him, or walking past on the street minding your own business, he desperately wants to come and say hello and shower you with his special brand of Champ affection. When he wants to show that love, he’ll jump up for a cuddle and settle in for a nap next to you, or on your lap, and you’ll be left in no doubt that he loves to be loved. If you let him, he’ll happily dive under the covers at bedtime and sleep next to your feet, maybe time for a quick cuddle first.

Champ can get quite excited when he’s going out (anywhere) and does tend to jump up at people so it’s something to be aware of around people a little less steady, he’s just too friendly! When he gets too excited, he lets out his half whimper half bark, and it’s like he can’t contain his excitement. Don’t let his grey facial hair lead you to think he’s anything but full of energy.

Having said that, Champ is generally very calm when the adults of the house are doing their own thing; he loves to sit at the window and watch the world go by and he’s happy to be left, even when his foster Dad goes out to play golf. He travels fine in the car, but will find it quite exciting and the whimpering noises will resume!

Champ loves his food and his previous owner may have been quite liberal with sharing their dinner. He doesn’t appear to know many commands, but with the help of a little cheese, he’s nearly learned to sit when asked and he always takes his treats very politely!

Champ adores his walks, any walks, but does get excited and grabs the lead, however that’s really calmed down. Unfortunately, he’s not dog friendly, so his new owner will need to be careful to avoid other dogs, he whimpers and pulls but is easily managed. On walks, he loves to take in as many of the smells when outside as he can. If there are any daffodils on the route, you can be sure he’ll march straight through them.

Champ has now been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. He does have the onset of arthritis and is on some pain relief.
