About me

My name’s Mike, aka The Tank! I’m a chubby boy which is why I was given that nickname. 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 absolutely love running wild in the compound chasing after my tennis balls and having my nose to the ground for other toys I may come across.

Why I need sponsoring

My tendency to rearrange and alter furniture has made it difficult for me to find my pawfect home, and I can get very over excited. 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!

You’re welcome to come and visit me, please make sure you call the Centre first on 0303 003 0000 . I’m afraid you won’t be able to touch me because I’m a bit nervous around people I don’t know – I’ll still be so happy to see you though!
