Default Hi From Eire

Hi there,

So I have two wonderful doggies, the oldest Taz was rescued 5 years ago in the UK, she's a staffie cross and typical with it. She will chase anything that moves and more often than not is other dog agressive in public ( seeming to be a domination thing ) so is never allowed off lead in public places and we are always extra vigilant with her.
She is a complete joy to us and loves our Son, she comes everywhere with us in the car and is completely spoiled.

We toyed with the idea for 3 years now of getting her a companion, she is very fussy but has been known to meet dogs she loves and have the best time ever playing so we wanted to find her a friend.
Numerous trips to pounds proved unsucessful as the introductions were always on leads and she seem to be more aggresive on lead.

Then by coincidence in October last year we found a stray male Jack russel and brought him home and she was great with him, we were delighted when his owners came to claim him of course but it promted us to make another trip to the pound, looking for a smaller male dog.

We came home with a 3 month old male puppy who had been dumped a week previously ( we were told he was a Staffie cross also ) but as he's growing we arent so sure.

So after a few very rough weeks 'Sparky' was finally accepted by Bossy Taz and looking at the two of them now ( curled up in a ball in the sun by the back door ) I know we made the best decsion ever and were so lucky to have found him.

People comment on how they look like Mother and son !

and here they are doing what they do best :

Its not unusuall with staffy/terrier rescues is that they have a combination with fear/dog aggression. My pittie is highly aggressive on lead outside, but on lead in my apartment she will accept any dog, share all her toys and play so nicely. Its like Jekyll and Mr Hyde. So I can truly relate to where you coming from. And your little one do look like a staff/jrt mix. He's VERY cute. And I love the photo of them sleeping together with him on top. It just makes me go all awwwww
Thank you for rescuing it warms my heart.

Oh and welcome to the forum!!
