Dogs Trust seeks loving homes for two Staffies


As the nation prepares to celebrate the most romantic day of the year, staff at Dogs Trust in Wales are supporting two staffies to get what their hearts desire the most – a forever home of their own.

Romeo arrived at Dogs Trust Cardiff after being found as a stray, and since he arrived at the rehoming centre, Romeo has proven to be a lovely lad who is curious and likes to explore his environment. He is a people person who is instantly friendly with everyone, loves playing with his tug toys and really enjoys his food.


Romeo is now looking for a home where he can chill and have a cuddle. As Romeo was found as a stray, Dogs Trust team has limited history on him. Therefore, he needs a home where he would be the only dog, but he could live with children aged 16 years old and over. He will need patient and understanding owners who can help build up the amount of time he can be left alone, and as he is an active lad, he would benefit from owners who can provide him with the physical and mental simulation he requires.

Meanwhile, just down the road at Dogs Trust Bridgend, another Staffie, Tetley, has also stolen the hearts of staff at the rehoming centre. Tetley is a handsome, loveable boy who is looking for a patient and understanding home. He is a sensitive boy who needs slow introductions to new people, and the staff believe some of his sensitivity is due to him being deaf and therefore easily startled. Tetley enjoys going out and about for walks and adventures but can’t go too far as he has three legs. However, Tetley doesn’t let any of this stop him – he is a loving, gentle boy who is going to make a fantastic addition to the right new home.

Tetley would need to be the only dog in the home but he does enjoy the company of other dogs out and about. Due to his sensitive nature, Dogs Trust Bridgend are looking for an adult only home. Tetley is house trained and used to be left for up to four hours.

Angela Wetherall, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust, says:

“This Valentine’s Day, we are celebrating the love that we have for our dogs, and you’d struggle to find a more loveable pair than Romeo and Tetley. We’re on a mission to find Romeo his Juliet (or Julian!) who he can snuggle up with on the sofa every night and enjoy long walks on the beach. Meanwhile, sweet and sensitive Tetley wants to prove that he really is someone’s cup of tea.

“These boys have stolen the hearts of staff at our Cardiff and Bridgend rehoming centres, and we are sure they are going to make the “pawfect” addition to their future families and will shower new owners with love and affection.”
