Snuggles with a Staffy!

An affectionate old age dog (OAD) at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe who loves cuddles gets tucked up in bed every night to help her relax before she falls asleep.

Nine-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier Lara loves people so much that she struggles to be left alone. But her adoring canine carers at the West Down rehoming centre have learnt that a bedtime routine of cuddles and tummy rubs before snuggling into her bed makes her feel more relaxed and sends her off to the land of nod.

The golden oldie has been with the rehoming centre for 365 nights, dreaming of finding her special someone. Her affectionate nature and love of fuss means that she is a big hit with staff and volunteers and loves nothing more than spending time with her two-legged friends for playtime and walkies.

Elise Watson, Dogs Trust Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre Manager, said:

“Lara is such a sweet girl who craves human company so we do everything we can to ensure she is relaxed before bedtime and have a restful nights sleep. All of the staff adore her so jump at the chance to tuck her up before bed.

“It is not hard to fall in love with Lara. She enjoys her home comforts, likes walks with lots of interesting things to sniff and likes running around after her toys. She’s at her happiest when she’s around her human friends so we all have our fingers crossed that she’ll find someone to tuck her up every night in a home of her own.”

This lovable lady is looking for a home where someone is around all the time to begin with where time left alone can be built up gradually. She thrives on fuss and company so would like to be the only pet in the home so she can have all the cuddles to herself. She could live with teenagers who will give her the time she needs to settle. She travels well in the car which is perfect for taking her on quiet walks in the woods. She has lived in a home previously so is housetrained. 

If you can offer lovely Lara the home she dreams of, please give Dogs Trust Ilfracombe a call on 0300 303 0292.
