Thumper – Big Crossbreed Lad


Thumper has gone to his new home today with Auntie Jane and family.  Still with terribly sore skin and sore eyes, we are hoping that now he’s in a home, this should settle.  He’s been waiting for months and months here, and Jane and her family know these big beasties, and he’s gone to live with remember PEANUT who they have sorted out her skin for too.

Have a great life Thumper, you have struggled in kennels big lad


Thumper is still waiting for his forever home and new best friend.  This lad is a character and is as wide as he is high at the minute!.  Much larger than a staffie he still has lots of growing to do and so is looking for a responsible home where you are used to more of the large/giant types of males.

He is friendly and lively and loves his walks and to play in the fields. He is a boisterous chap but very loving and eager to learn. He’s cheeky and is looking for a home that can offer him ground rules and to keep him in line with kindness not violence! In the right home, he will come on in leaps and bounds (literally) he knows how to behave he just can’t help himself leaping for joy when he gets taken out of his kennel.

Only around 10 months old, he mixes with all the other dogs here, and can be very submissive if anyone shouts or raises their voice at him.  He plays in the fields with Angel where she literally runs rings around him, but he loves it.  He can go as an only dog or in a home with a nice female steady dog with owners who know this type of breed of dog.


Barnaby loves to play ball and fetch

He loves the other dogs and often plays with our resident dogs in the field. Bronte his German Shepherd mentor always keeps this youngster in line. Thumper is looking for a home that can keep him well socialised with other dogs and offer him training and guidance to ensure he continues to grow into a well mannered adult. He is short and very chunky with some very large feet to say the least. He will need a large dog experienced home as he will grow into a big strong boy in no time.  He will certainly be bigger than your average staffy type thats for sure.

Being such a young dog he shouldn’t be left alone for much longer than 4 hours a day as he will easily get bored.

He has had a skin condition and is on antibiotics now under the vet and is also receiving medicated bathes at our rescue to speed up his recovery. Once this has cleared up he is booked in for castration. Can you offer this young, character Brindle chap a home?
