Meet Eddie. A stunning 2 year old American Bulldog cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is looking for a loving, understanding home that has experience with Bull breeds with preferably a female owner (to whom he will give complete loyalty!).
Eddie is great with older children and other dogs. He adores people and loves to say hello to every lady he meets on walks!
Eddie has been waiting for the right home for a long time and has come along such an incredible way in this time; please take the time to read his story.

Eddie - 2 year old SBT cross American Bulldog - Fostered Redditch for FOTA 100_2353-Copy
Eddie was originally taken from a veterinary practice a year and a half ago where he was due to be put to sleep due to aggression issues. A kind soul saw past his problems and took him in. It became immediately obvious from his behaviour that poor Eddie has previously beaten, starved, dehydrated and confined for long periods of time. On top of this Eddie was testosterone filled and displayed both fear and anxiety aggression and had severe trust issues with men. Note that I am using past tense!
Everything changed for Eddie the day he was castrated. He went in to the vets a frustrated boy who hated the world and came out later that day as a completely different dog. Many people have called him a “poster boy” for neutering due to the drastic behavioural change the castration caused. Upon a post operation check, the veterinarian described Eddie as “a lovely dog – he’s just a bit nuts!”

Eddie has been in a foster home in Redditch since the castration and has blossomed beautifully into a much calmer, sweet and sociable boy thanks to a steady routine, a firm but affectionate hand and consistent discipline using positive reinforcement.

Eddie - 2 year old SBT cross American Bulldog - Fostered Redditch for FOTA 100_2359
Eddie has learnt that food and water is no longer in scarce supply. He originally would guard his food bowl and drink huge amounts of water at a time but these issues have now been resolved. He does prefer to eat in his crate because it helps him feel more secure but he does not guard it and now drinks only when he needs to.

He is an active boy and will need a home where he gets good regular walks. His fosterer says he likes to have an occasional “Springer” moment where he has a mad half an hour running around but he is quite chilled out most of the time.
Eddie loves playing, especially football with the other dogs in his home but he does like to play rough so other dogs in his forever home will need to be his size, larger or quite chunky. He gets on well with other dogs and would really love to live with at least one other dog. He has never shown any aggression to any other dog and will back off if a dog tells him off.

Eddie is great with people and has not shown any signs of aggression towards people or children since his castration however we will only re home him with older children. Eddie is especially affectionate with females (his fosterer says he is a bit of a tart!) but does seem to respond better to a deeper voice and has improved drastically in his behaviour around men. Eddie would love a home where he gets interaction with both male and female adults.

This sweet boy has really come out of his shell since being in foster care and has consistently shown himself to be sociable and loveable. He will let you know if he really likes you by being a bit clingy and leaning on you! He likes to have a fuss from his foster mum then lie on her feet to keep them warm!

He really is a lovely lad who makes everyone smile with the great variety of expressions he can display using his ears!

Eddie is crate trained and can be left alone for up to four hours providing he is given a good walk first and kept in his crate with a nice chew or something interesting.
He is house trained but previously has had problems with defecating in the house over night. This has improved with altering his feeding times.

Eddie needs time, patience, understanding and lots of love! His ideal home will have experience with bull breeds and at least one other chunky dog in the home that likes to play. Ideally he will get interaction with male and female adults but he is also happy to live with older children. He needs to have an active home and one that is prepared to commit to him and care for him for the rest of his life.

Eddie has come along such an incredible way and we know that the right home for him is out there, can you offer him that home?

Eddie has been castrated, micro chipped and vaccinated. He is on foster in Redditch but we home across the UK.

Nice looking boy. If I could have him, I would. Dempsey wouldn't approve, though. Sad

I think his change has more to do with his new treatment than the castration, though. The testostierone would have stayed in his system for up to 6 months afterwards!

A lady at the vets took him in when she found he was going to be put to sleep for his issues. I believe this was in the Redditch area.

He is a fantastic boy and has come on such a long way Love Struck Can anyone offer Eddie a home?

See he is the same age and split of my boy with the markings between the eyes and has the same issues/background so wondering if they are related!

I'd offer him a home in a heart beat but can't until we move next year Sad

This post is 9yrs old, if you want to take on a rescue I would suggest looking at your local rescue centres! Staffies unfortunately often are the predominant breed looking for new homes Crying or Very sad
