Hello, I'm Eric

About me

I'm a smiley Staffie cross - in fact I think I've got the BIGGEST smile of all the sponsor dogs, what do you think? I feel so lucky to live at Dogs Trust Ballymena, we have a little woodland area I can explore, it has lots of little houses for hedgehogs to take shelter and, naturally, I'm very interested in them! I think I'm pretty macho, but my carers say I've got a soft side because I love cuddles and fuss - I think they're on to something, but don't tell them, I've got a reputation to protect!

Why I need sponsoring

I came to Dogs Trust with my litter mates as a pup and did have a home but was brought back because my owner couldn't look after me any more. I can get quite wound up around other dogs and I'm a big, boisterous boy so I need a very particular type of home. I'm so lucky to be here, my carers know just how to keep me calm!
