About me

My name’s Mike, aka The Tank! I’m a Staffie cross and live at Dogs Trust Newbury with my wagtastic carers! My carers say I’m a wise but cheeky chap because I know what I want and turn my charm on to get it! I used to love racing around the compounds, but as I get older I prefer a gentle, sniffy walk and playing games to keep my brain occupied. One thing which hasn't changed though is my love of food - it'll always be my favourite thing! Closely followed by a snooze in my comfy bed, of course.

Why I need sponsoring

I've been rehomed a few times, but my tendency to rearrange and alter furniture made it difficult for me to find my pawfect home. I'm making great progress with my training to stay calm, but it takes time - thankfully my carers always make my training sessions fun! My paws are crossed that my forever home is out there, so while I wait, I’d love for you to sponsor me here at Dogs Trust Newbury where my loving carers look after me day and night!
