Advice with buying a Staffy

Post by Scaffff on Thu Nov 12 2015, 22:04

First topic message reminder :

Hello there, I'm new here so hello everyone, me and my wife and 7yr old boy have decided to get a family dog, I'm a site manager in London so I wanted a dog that could come with me to work.
And my family love nice long walks.
Anyway to the point we have found a 1 year old male and we will be its 4th owner.
Apparently a lad bought it and then his grandmother had it and now it's with a couple and 3 kids.
The man is now ill and the lady cannot give the Staffy the attention it's needs.
I've asked as much as possible and if it was good with kids and other dogs and she said yes.
I should be excited but I'm just worrying now that all the moving from house to house would effect it at all.
Has anyone else had a similar experience. Am I worrying about nothing, is there anything I should look out for.

Thank you for reading

Steve

When we got ours we changed the name immediately. So he associated the new home with the new name. But then i really don't think dogs care for names. Its more tones.

Hey I'm a bit slow on this thread but sounds like you have made a friend for life. Well done on all the background work and changing his food. When we adopted is we were his third owner and although he still has a big issue with other dogs , he is the funniest cheekiest loving dog and we would be without him.

I bet he will be spoils to bits but have rules in place as he will need time to settle down

Congratulations can't wait to see photos. And ask any questions we are here to help and have lots of experience between us
