We have rescued a pair of bonded Staffys – possibly mother and son. Despite extensive advertising and alerting the pound no one came for these two.

They are both young, say 2 years or under (they have great teeth). Cookie is the black and white female and shes quite independent, whereas Choco the brindle male is devoted to her and is anxious when he is separated from her.

We are looking ideally for a foster to adopt situation for these two, with someone who is prepared to work with Choco to reassure him.

Unfortunately we cannot test with cats,and whilst both are very friendly towards people, we would recommend no young children because these two, although smaller than knee height are solidly built and could knock a child over.

Currently being fostered on Aucklands north shore.

Both dogs have been assessed by a trainer, and will be de-sexed, have their first vaccination, be microchipped, registered etc.

There will be adoption donation of $300.00 (two for the price of one) to help towards these costs.
