About me

Hi everyone, it’s Saffy here!! I’m a beautiful girlie and I am very much in need of a perfect, loving forever home. I’m a bit of a Heinz 57 if you like, maybe some Collie, maybe some Staffie but definitely 100% adorable. I’m around 8 years old but I don’t act as such, I’m a teenager at heart with a new lease of life! 

The staff here don’t know too much about my past but they’ve taken a pretty good guess that life hasn’t always been kind to me. I’ve had a difficult few months since ending up in the kennel system but since arriving in Clacton, I’ve embraced life and all it throws at me! 

Once I’ve gotten to know you, I am a real cuddle monster! I love my favourite humans and I always leap into them for a big old hug. My other love in life is my toys. Big or small, teddy or ball..I love them all! I love chasing around our fields here with my toys and I so can’t wait for a garden of my very own to play and sunbathe in. 

I love going out on my walks and walking along in all the long grass and, at the end of a busy day, I love settling down with a chew bone on my favourite armchair before dreaming of my forever home. 

Because of my unsettled past, I have a few insecurities but with patience and time, I overcome these. I will need a kind owner who can understand where I’m coming from and help me when I need it. I’ll need an adult only, pet free home. I’ve got so much love to give; I just need to find someone to share it with!!
