Homed

Homing Requirements: Our Staffies need stability; care and a regime which centres around their needs. Myra has lived with other dogs, cats and a snake! Myra has basic commands. Myra is not used to regular exercise or formal walks until foster placement. Acute skin problem being successfully treated.

Her Story: Myra was rescued by neighbours who finally got the committal from her owner to take her son out of the situation of gross neglect then followed by Myra. We are going to take her son in Ted next week he is currently in pound being treated by malnourishment and skin condition. Myra we took Myra in on the 11th Oct when she was vet checked and treated for skin condition; had first vax, and chipped. Myra has already been spayed. Myra has gone into foster with a young couple with a cat in Maidstone the same day.

Advert: Myra has had a desperate life but despite this she has come into Rescue fluent with babies; young children; other dogs in her home having had 2 litters and living with her son for the past 3 years. She has also lived with 3 cats and a snake. Her owner couldn't afford food or care so she is now benefiting from good quality nutrition; regular exercise and supportive affection.

Myra is a large black Staffie with a badger strip of white between her brows. She has a ready smile and so much love to give, which is constantly on offer. She travels well in the front of a car and has very good manners meeting people within her home and outside. A welcoming spirit who has made us all appreciative adMYRAs!!!!!!!!!!

Please visit Myra Staffie DOB 06 Maidstone Kent on our Forum to find out more about her and follow her progress.

If you are interested in re-homing please complete Our on-line Homing Questionnaire so we can ensure our dogs are matched and will suit your circumstances/lifestyle.

Myla was playing on the green 'fetch' when I went to collect her from the neighbours who had saved her yesterday. The first time she had been out the hpouse for many a month. She was giving the game all she had and it took her 20 mins to stop panting after her game whilst travelling to the vets for her check.





Video: Myla playing




Myla was saved from kennels by the skin on her nose...by Suzanne and James offering her a snug place with a huge garden in a rural setting for her to come to terms with losing her home and to prepare for her next.

She looks adorable and can at least now look forward to a better life thanks to her rescuers, who deserve a huge thanks.

What made he/she think they could afford 2 litters of puppies then...? Rolling Eyes At least Myla can now look forward to being loved for being a Staffie rather than a cash cow. :evil:

Lovely update from Suzanne and James (they are joining the forum):
Quote:
Hi Ladies,

just to give a quick update on Myla in case you want to put it on the forum (I'm not on it yet).

She is doing really really well, and being as good as gold. Since we bought the crate for her and set it up in the kitchen with her duvet and bone she has been no bother at all at night.

Shes getting 3 walks a day (two long ones and a short one) - and still has lots of energy and enthusiasm for playing stick and ball in the graden too. She has good recall on the long lead and good response to basic commands - sit, fetch, come, drop it!, in your bed, lie down, shake hands, no, wait/stay, and most importantly- GOOD GIRL :-) She waits for her meal until you invite her to eat it, and 'asks' to come onto the sofa with her chin on the seat and a raised eyebrow till you say 'come on then!'.

She appetite is healthy, she has taken all her pills, and she will be treated with advocate this weekend.

So far on walkies she has met cows, calves (they wanted to lick her), goats, pheasants (she nearly had my arm off ;-)), ducks, rabbits and horses (she needed reassurance - was a bit nervous- think she might have thought they were MASSIVE dogs- but was fine once she had the reassurance and didn't bark) .... but we are saving meeting the cat until this weekend when we can do it slowly and calmly. She might get to see the seaside this weekend too.

Shes been out to the park too, she loved paddling in the lake and listening (from a safe distance) to the ducks. She's been on a short car journey (strapped in with her harness) and I think she found it pretty exciting.

Shes got lots of love to give and her only slightly destructive tendancy is aimed at footballs (she has utterly destroyed 4 that were lanuishing in the garden) - were getting her a rope knot and a kong this weekend.

She is housetrained- no accidents at all!- and lets you know when she needs to go. Bless her.

Given all she has been through I'm stunned by her. We are really proud of her. She will make a wonderful family dawg for someone.

Anyway, thats all for now, wishing you both a lovely weekend - I'll let you know how we get on with the cat!

best,
S x

So, Myla finally met the cat- it went really well. We just got milli (the cat) settled on the sofa then let myra come in and get on the sofa too. After a day of playing on the beach Myla was super chilled (ie. shattered!) and hardly looked up when milli moved around to get a better view. No barks-not a squeak. Milli was 'on watch' for a while but within half an hour just fell asleep on the sofa. Puuurfect! Today they are cohabiting happy and
treating each other with calm indifference. Again Myla exceeds the
best we'd hoped for. An absolute gem of a dog!!! Smile

A lovely day out at the seaside- dont think she had seen the sea before! But she loved it!! We played ball with her for about an hour - she always brought it back and just couldn't get enough!

Well the news is that Myla still continues to be a star girl, very well behaved and full of love! This weewkend we took her out for a walk in Caring in Kent. Lots of hills and orcahnrds and fields full of sheep and horses. She took it all in with her typical boundless enthusiasm! Bless her. We had a few friedns to stay over the weekend too and she was really friendly and lovely with them. In fact she was so good they wouldn't believe that we'd only had her 10 days!!

Here she is on the way out on Saturday

Myla popped in for a quick weekend visit to kennels today. Rave reviews from her fosterers who described her as a real treat and a perfect angel.
Off to the vet with me for her vaccs and I have to agree.

Although I have to confess I lied to xxLynne (sorry Lynne!  Embarassed )- I thought I hadn't got any head shots of the lovely girl but strangely one appears to have come out. I don't think it truly captures her beauty but it's a start.  It was starting to get a little dark so it's the flash showing in her otherwise deep chocolate eyes, sorry folks.

It definitely can't show her gorgeously soft fur and gentle temperament, such a good girl and even the vet giving the vaccs declared she was such a good girl she deserved one of his special treats from the shelf. Myla was too polite to refuse of course!

I suddenly noticed today when we were out for a walk just how shiny Myla's coat has now become!

When she came to us she had a skin condition which meant bald patches on her back, head and ears, but now the patches on her back are totally gone and her coat is silky and shiny where once it wad dull.

Shes really bouncing back bless her!!

and I'm sure it won't be long now until the patches on her head and ears, which have imporoved markedly, are gone too.
