Dogs Trust

COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe.

Eleven is a magic number!

Sophie the Staffy's puppies

Earlier this week we introduced you to Sophie, our very beautiful and heavily pregnant Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross.

Well we’re very happy to report that yesterday she was delivered of ELEVEN healthy puppies! Six girls and five boys.

Her labour went brilliantly and she has immediately taken to motherhood perfectly. She is keeping her puppies clean and warm and being very patient when they need to feed.

As she’s such an inspirational girl, we’ve decided to name her children in her honour so they all have names beginning with S.

So we’d like to formally introduce you to Samantha, Sabrina, Simon, Sophia, Selena, Samuel, Stephanie, Sebastian, Spencer, Solomon and Suzannah.
