Jaffa is a beautiful 1 year old Staffie x. She came into our care back in July as a stray so we don't know much about her history. Jaffa was very worried when she first arrived and so may need a bit of time to adjust to her new home. However once she does she is an extremely affectionate, loyal and bright little lady. She is a favourite with the staff and volunteers here and we would love for her to find a new home soon, as despite our efforts, the kennel environment is not ideal for such a bright and active dog.
Jaffa has mixed with other dogs in the past but she is struggling with her social skills at the moment, partly due to stress. Her new owners would need to have quiet areas locally to be able to walk her while they help her relax and gently work on her socialising. She would love her new owners to have experience or be keen to learn about positive reward based training to help her with her reaction to other dogs and build her confidence. At the moment she will need to be the only dog in the home.
Jaffa is playful and likes toys. She also enjoys interactive toys such as kongs and puzzle feeder where she can use her brain.
She can live with teenager and adults and would suit someone with experience of staffie types.
Jaffa is still a young dog and has heaps of potential for her new home. If you like staffie hugs Jaffa is your girl!
