Poor Ralphie is only a young dog but has already been passed from pillar to post and desperately needs some stability. He is a handsome and excitable large Staffie-x who is friendly with everyone he meets. He walks well on lead when there are no distractions but will need continued work when around other dogs as he can become frustrated and pull towards them and he is a strong boy!
He is meeting dogs in a controlled environment and is making progress with moments of calmness. However when in full play mode is very over the top and can be too boisterous for most dogs. Potential adopters will be shown and given training on managing his dog introductions and helping him to relax. He could live with teenagers who are used to big exuberant dogs. He has recently spent some time in a foster home and was the perfect house guest. Ralphie is a smart lad and works well for food and with consistent handling and the right training will become a fun and loving member of the family.
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £180.
