Bless her, this sweet little girl is Bridie and she is a mature brindle Staffordshire lady who has a nice temperament and is very gentle.
Bridie was fresh from the pound where her time was running out and she was checked by the vet, before she came to us, who reckons she’s 6 years old. We now have her safely in a nice foster home waiting for her final forever family.
Here’s what one of the volunteers told us about her before she arrived with us…
” I am in love! What a cracker. Lots of strokes at the vets for her check up, she lay on the floor then rolled over for a tummy rub. Quiet in the car. Does not like gravy bones, prefers Schmackos!!! Shes brill in the car- so I found out ! She was fastened on the back seat, using the short belt that fits the seat belt holder. She must have stood on the red button because she joined me up front. I could not stop so I left her in the co-pilots seat. She sat down and was happy to look out of the windscreen. I think she is used to travelling in that front
Lovely girl !
Her Best Points :
Gentle and affectionate, doesn’t pull, indifferent to other dogs.
Foster Report :
Bridie is fine. She is well behaved, eats her food and is no bother to walk. She is about 18 inches from floor to shoulder when standing up.
She sleeps in her crate all night
We’ve given her a shower this morning and are going to take her to the big park later for some fun.
At the vets, she was a bit indifferent to a dog near the counter when we went in. We sat in the large area. A woman with a young Cavapoo, or similar came in. It was whining a bit. Bridie seemed almost sympathetic, she was interested to try to meet – waggy tail, no growl or bark.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
