This is Bonnie, a beautiful playful girl looking for a new person to love. She has had to leave her previous family through no fault of her own, and she’s is now in foster care.

We think she’s 5 years old, but we’re not really sure. Bonnie looks like she is mainly staffy or bull terrier, but maybe with some Shar-Pei as she has tiny ears and lots of skin (well, one and a half ears. Don’t laugh, it’s adorable).

Bonnie responds very well to basic commands; sit, stay (sort of), wait (when dinner is put down) and is good on and off lead. She is brimming with energy and loves nothing more than a big wide zoom across a field. Bonnie is very affectionate and a little bit insecure but getting better every day – she loves meeting new people, but can be a little wary of men, but once they’ve been snuffled and woofed at a bit she loves them and will wriggle on them for as long as they will let her.

She’s completely house trained and can be left alone for a few hours and will pretend she hasn’t been sleeping on the couch. She needs to be reminded of her boundaries sometimes, as she doesn’t always read other dogs body language well and reacts to them telling her off.

She loves car trips, and going for walks. She’s a wriggler, and gets super wriggly and upside down when getting her collar and harness on because it’s so exciting.

She can be too excitable with other dogs and needs to understand her boundaries and other dogs signals better, so she needs a responsible human who will help her manage her excitement. Bonnie would suit an experienced home that’s going to help her continue socialising with people and dogs. She’s very bouncy and can sometimes be a bit rough when playing so a house with confident young adults rather than very young children would be best. Her previous home included children whom she adored. At this point it’s probably best that Bonnie is the only dog, and definitely no cats (or squirrels).

If you can give Bonnie a loving forever or foster home and continue her socialisation journey then please go to our website and fill in an adoption form and we will get in touch
