Beautiful Mitzi is a very petite Staffy girl. She's happy and confident with people she meets, giving a delightful waggy greeting. She makes a lovely little cry of happiness when you stroke her! Mitzi loves to follow our Kennel Manager around and goes crazy with excitement when her favourite volunteer, Doreen, arrives to walk her! We're convinced Mitzi will make someone a wonderful, cheerful companion.


Mitzi and Doreen have such a lovely relationship - Mitzi becomes extra excited and vocal when she knows Doreen is on site and Doreen indulges Mitzi with hugs and cuddles. Doreen says that Mitzi is the sweetest older lady, who wants nothing more than to be given fuss and love. Mitzi has the brightest eyes and the waggiest bottom. 


Poor Mitzi has a couple of health issues that we need to talk about..... Mitzi has a little incontinence problem... she can wee and poop in her bed, usually overnight, nothing that a few old sheets can't sort.  When she's out on a walk, she will stop and perform a complete wee, but she doesn't seem to be aware of when she is pooping and will plop as she walks. Doreen, Mitzi's favourite walker, has noticed some improvements recently where Mitzi will do a full poo when prompted. Maybe, if Mitzi is taken out regularly and empties herself, she will have fewer accidents indoors. 


Mitzi also has wobbly back legs. She has arthritis but that doesn't stop her! Mitzi has been with us now for over a year and all the pottering around in the yard and her daily walks, have really helped to improve her mobility. She benefits from a rub on her back legs and hip area to keep the blood flowing. She could happily walk 2 or 3 miles a day but we also know that she'd be quite content with a couple of short walks and a garden to mooch in. 


Mitzi walks beautifully on the lead - she doesn't pull at all and she isn't phased by bicycles, traffic, runners etc. She's alert if she sees a cat, so we couldn't rehome her to a home with feline friends. Mitzi is not friendly with other dogs - she can walk past them without any reaction but if she is close enough to grab them, she will do. Mitzi's new owner will need to be aware of this and walk her at a safe distance from other dogs. Mitzi has access to the play area adjacent to Brock and Dubz (our big Sponsor Dogs) and she's completely comfortable with them as close neighbours, likewise, she doesn't mind other dogs from the kennels walking past her to go for walks, but if excitable doggies are playing near her, she gets a bit grumpy. 


Mitzi is a really well behaved girl around food - she loves her treats and has a sneaky little habit of turning down the boring ones, if she knows you've got tastier ones about your person! She takes treats gently and doesn't show any signs of guarding her food bowls. 


Mitzi is a fan of toys, especially balls. She loves an appropriately sedentary  game of fetch but you need to wait for her to drop it for the game to continue - Mitzi likes to be in control of the timings! 


Please consider offering Mitzi her forever home, or perhaps you could provide a foster home until she finds her happy ever after. Mitzi has had a hard life and she deserves a cosy, loving home where she can snuggle with you on the sofa and keep you entertained. She really is a little sweetheart.
