Description

McGregor is a little ladies man! He has an adoring fan club of volunteers who visit him regularly for kisses and cuddles. Unfortunately, McGregor is wary of strangers (particularly men), we think he's had a bad start in life,  but with patience and a few treats, he gradually becomes more trusting.

 

McGregor is a dinky pint sized Staffy, super handsome and he's in great health. He's only two years old, fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

 

Mcgregor wins the award for the easiest dog to walk... he walks by your side, wagging his tail happily and doesn't pull in the slightest. He occasionally stops in his tracks, as though he doesn't want to walk anymore, but we think this could be his crafty way of getting a treat! 

 

It appears that McGregor has had bad experiences with other dogs in his past as he becomes reactive when walking by other dogs. With the right advice and training tips, he could be socialised more with other dogs and learn to relax when they are nearby.


Sadly, McGregor has been with us for 11 months now and is craving a home full of love. Some of our volunteers arranged a sleepover at one of their houses and couldn't be more positive about his behaviour around the house. McG is house trained, not destructive, he is polite around food, enjoyed watching the TV and he didn’t even snore too loudly!  McGregor settled very quickly at his sleepover - considering how long he has been in kennels this is a really positive sign for his transition into his forever home.

 


Here is what one of our volunteers has to say about McGregor: 

"There's just something about this really special boy. When he is with the people he loves, he is the happiest dog in the world, who just wants to sit on your lap and smother you with kisses. I would bring him home in an instant, but I have other dogs and I know McGregor would struggle with that.  

Ideally, McGregor needs a home with a lady who is home a good amount of time and has the patience to work through his trust issues.

He is a loveable little character who has funny little quirks. His favourite thing to do is to sit on your lap on a park bench, watching the world go by. He loves playing, but has the right balance of having fun, without being overly boisterous. Please give McGregor a chance. He is still young and deserves to be happy now. I honestly think he'd bring so much love and happiness to someone's life." 

 

 

McGregor can be wary of new people, especially some men and has snapped a couple of times, we ask that you are understanding of this and patient when meeting McGregor, allowing him to make friends at his pace. We would like you make a few visits to give him chance to get to know you and feel confident in your company.  For this reason, we are looking for a child-free home for McGregor.

 

McGregor requires a pet-free home - he is not dog or cat friendly.

Thank you
