BONNIE – Pretty Staffie cross


Bonnie, having been found by Rain Rescue in apalling conditions her head was massive compared to her starving body – has today gone to a wonderful new home.  Having been in foster with Auntie Pauline for a week, she has realised that life is fun – Bonnie, you are the one that Steve had to save as he knew you had simply no chance in the dog pounds.  He didn’t know if he was bringing you home to be loved for a while and even if we had to put you to sleep you were so thin and such terrible back legs.  Hundreds of pounds later, lots of love, worming tablets and a great load of care and tlc from Rain Rescue’s magic team – we can’t believe how wonderful you look.  Today you have gone to just the best home, where we know you will be loved.

Have a great life.

Bonnie is a friendly fun little girl who loves to play and be with you and most of all have fun.  She is currently in a foster home with other dogs, and you can see her here in the pictures of her going out on one of the long walks around Graves Park with all her friends.

She’s living with a family with children and knows some basic commands and is learning more and more each day.

She has had a terrible life before she came into Rain Rescue’s care and came in with another female terrier and they lived together.

Bonnie has now picked up on the lost weight she had previously too.  She has strange wobbly hips and we have had her X-ray’d to see what they were.

The vets comments were “well she has a slight twist to her spine, slight hip dysplasia and arthritis has formed due to the wear and tear.  However, it doesn’t worry her in the slightest, she’s full of beans, probably had them like this from birth and thats how she’s always known it.   Isn’t she a gorgeous friendly girl.  Just find a nice home for her, get her on a supplement for the joints and she should have many more happy years to come.  There is no surgery or anything else needed for her – she’s good to go”.

Bonnie’s tail never stops wagging.

Her wobbly hips don’t cause her any issues and doesn’t hold her back at all. Bonnie can still walk, run and jump just like any other dog. She’s clever and already knows basic commands like ‘sit’ and ‘paw’.

Bonnie cannot be rehomed with cats but would be fine as an only dog or with another nice friendly male.
