Mother and son duo seek ‘pawfect’ family

A six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe is searching for a loving new home with her son.

Mother, Poppy and four-year-old son Casey, came into the care of the West Down-based rehoming centre after their owner became ill. Like typical Staffies, they are playful, friendly and affectionate and love nothing more than spending their time together.

They are looking for a home together where they can pass the time  playing with each other and getting lots of fuss from their new owners.

Elise Watson, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe, says:
“Taking on a doggy duo, especially when they are related, can be extremely rewarding - whilst it’s double the responsibility, you’ll also find that it’s double the love.

“If you didn’t know these two were mother and son, you’d soon guess when you saw them together. They are very attached and love each other’s company and will happily spend endless hours running around after each other.

“Despite being related, they do have different personalities. Casey follows his mum everywhere and looks to her for encouragement, whereas Poppy is very independent. Both are super affectionate and love fuss and cuddles so if you’re prepared to give tummy rubs and a behind the ear scratch, you’ll have two very happy pets.

Both dogs are housetrained so could be left for short periods of time. They are looking for an active home and could live with children over the age of 12.
