Hello, my name is Winston!  

I am a 1-2yr old Staffordshire Bull Terrier castrated male.  

I came into the care of Safe and Sound after being found abandoned on the streets of Hertfordshire.

I am a stunning example of my breed: a traditional staffie - petite, short legged and very athletic, with a striking 'blue' coat.

Kennel staff say I am a sociable, outgoing chap with a warm, affectionate temperament; I enjoy snuggling up with staff and will happily chill out on the sofa with you for a nice cuddle.

Don't be fooled though, although I can be a couch potato when there is a comfy lap to sit on, I am a high energy, high drive dog.  

I will need an active home able to provide me with plenty of mental and physical stimulation.  I have always fancied trying agility or maybe flyball and would love an owner to take me to activity classes where I can use my brain and burn off some energy.

I LOVE to play, but will need a family who will teach him to play politely and sensibly, without jumping up or getting over excited. 

It’s not yet known how long I can be left alone for so I’m currently looking for a home where there is somebody around for most of the day.

I would like to live with someone who has owned bullbreeds before and who has researched my breed type.

In kennels, I have been well behaved around other dogs and could live with a calm female dog providing we’re a good match.  I wouldn’t be suitable to live with cats or small furries though.

I may be able to live with sensible children from 10 years of age and upwards.

My new owners will be expected to take me to training classes and to provide me with a minimum of two hour’s exercise every day.   

I am neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.  

I do have a medical condition (thoracic limbs) which means I drag my feet slightly when walking.  The vet has recommended that I wear boots to protect my feet from getting sore when I'm out and about.

If you’re interested in giving me a home and are prepared for the hard work and commitment involved, please complete an application form:

I hope to see you soon, love
