Mario, Staffie, DOB 01.12 – Godstone, Surrey

Homing Requirements: Mario needs a family whose expectations are towards what they can offer Mario to overcome his concerns and so that he will learn to settle his nerves around other dogs. Exit management needs to be ensured and a secure garden to enjoy. Family with older children but a well thought through strategy around managing a dog nervous of dogs accompanied by children outside.
His Story: Mario was handed in by his owner. He has grown up with young children, apparently he was attacked as a puppy by several dogs and the owners kept him away from dogs and seldom walked him. Couldn’t keep him any longer as hasn’t got time for him so handed him to the local dog warden. Mario is neutered, chipped and fully vax’d.
Advert: Mario came into rescue before Christmas. He wants to ignore dogs, will bark if he feels threatened and has very low self-esteem. He walks in the vicinity of other dogs just going about his own business, but is conscious of them. He can wag his tail but needs to gradually acquire a sense of safety around them. Mario adores people and the vet had a problem vaccinating him due to the face wash being liberally given!
Mario is a little white Staffie who is such a pretty boy. A sweet button face and his eyes shining with love and enthusiasm. He will need the right owners and they will know how to slowly give him a sense of safety in his own walking territory and to get him to tolerate accompanied non-threatening walks with leaded dogs. Mario is a treasure in the home and adores children.
Please note that this dog is currently in boarding kennels and is also available for foster until a ‘forever’ home is found.

“Some of our dog’s true character comes out in kennels. Mario is ever the entertainer, aptly named his Latin American roots are obvious to anyone opening up his kennel in the morning as he makes his bedding into a poncho with such skill and panache…

Mario is still patiently waiting for a home of his own! Could you offer Mario a place to hang his poncho?!
