THE BATTERSEA BULL TERRIERS LOOKING FOR NEW HOMES

Affectionate, loyal and good with children, Staffordshire Bull Terriers are softer than you think. Just in time for the International Day of Happiness on Sunday 20 March, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has launched a drive to find loving homes for two of its Staffies, Roxy and Kye. Can you make them happy? 

Staffordshire Bull Terriers are people oriented, intelligent and highly affectionate. They’re so gentle that originally, they were bred as nanny dogs for children, but many of them don’t have homes. In 2011 Battersea launched their ‘Staffies. They’re softer than you think’ campaign to raise awareness about the breed, since they gained a bad reputation for being ‘dangerous dogs’. But this negative stigma was generally down to the owners, not the breed itself, since Staffies have proven to be gentle, loyal and loving. 

The campaign aimed to encourage Londoners to rehome a rescue Staffie from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home: ‘Here at Battersea we love Staffies and we’re determined to show just how amazing these dogs really are,’ says Robert Young, Battersea’s Head of Dog Rehoming. ‘Both Kye and Roxy arrived through no fault of their own and we’re keen to see them find a perfect happy ending. Who could resist those massive smiles?’

Meet Kye
Four-year-old Kye was given up to Battersea due to his owner’s allergies, but is friendly, and loves attention. Battersea is eager to see him placed in a loving home again.
