10-year-old Bessie spent three years waiting for her perfect forever home. We couldn’t pinpoint a specific reason for her long wait but unfortunately we do often find that older Staffordshire bull terriers can struggle to find their perfect match.

No one ever gave up hope of finding Bessie that home though and many of you followed her daily antics on her own dedicated Facebook page. It was clear that there would be a home out there for Bessie, we just had to be patient and use her time with us to train and prepare her for life in a new home.

Gorgeous black and white Staffordshire bull terrier mix Molly arrived at NAWT after her previous owner found out she was pregnant.

A gentle soul with a lovely nature, Molly entered motherhood unaware of what was to come and confused by her new surroundings.

Arriving with us just a few weeks before she was due to give birth, the animal carers quickly got to work putting together a temporary ‘puppy room’ where Molly could prepare for her special arrivals.

Tinker and Polo were both born at NAWT to a feral mother who was incredibly protective of her young. 

Due to her feral nature, the boys’ mother made it very difficult for staff to get near to her or her kittens, which meant that Tinker and Polo missed out on a lot of handling and socialisation in the crucial early stages of their life. This resulted in both cats feeling very frightened around people and hiding away from visitors as a consequence.
