Introducing Tye – He sounds lovely! And a really fab ‘Staffy Tale’!
Tell us a bit about Tye’s age, personality… Tye is a little over 6 years old and we have just adopted him from a charity in Scotland where he was in foster care for nearly a yr following his owner having to give him up. Tye is an A-typical staffy, he’s cheeky, headstrong, sometimes awkward and definitely throws the temporary deafness when he wants but he is o so funny and affectionate. He loves nothing more than human company, plenty of belly tickles, strokes and cuddles. Equally loves walks and 100 mile an hour play & crashing out snoring on the floor (or sofa)
Tell us a funny story about Tye … The first night he came to live with us we were quite adamant that he was not going to allowed on the furniture, we’d had a staff previously so we’re aware how difficult this could prove. Anyway he wouldn’t settle, he whinged, he cried, he was restless but we were resolute. Finally about 3am I gave up and went to bed leaving him with out son. I came down at 6am to find my son asleep on the floor and Tye curled up on the sofa, and that was the end of the furniture embargo!!
What do you love most about Tye? His one white paw which looks like he’s stood in paint, his dodgy ear, his lumps and bumps, his perfect imperfections, his cheeky grin, his personality and the fact he is always chatting, moaning, howling but rarely barking. He is everything you’d want in a staffy and more, fiercely loyal yet affectionate.
What is Tye’s favourity toy?It used to be a squeaky giraffe when he was in foster and although he came to us with one they have been discontinued. He does love his squeaky lion for comfort and a big think rope chew for play fighting
What’s Tye’s favourite dog food?Simpsons dry dog kibble and anything meat!He has stole daddy’s lazy boy for sleep and also the sofa although as I write he is actually in his bed for only about the third time in as many weeks since we’ve had him
Where does Tye sleep? Most of us staffy owners already know the answer to this one! He has stole daddy’s lazy boy for sleep and also the sofa although as I write he is actually in his bed for only about the third time in as many weeks since we’ve had him
Any good advice you would offer someone who’s thinking of getting a staffy?Get one but get a rescue, give a dog abandoned a second chance, they are great with kids, will protect them, play with them and love them for all their lives, there is nothing more rewarding than rescuing an animal, a staffy is the best dog in the world for kids and adults alike and they will spend the rest of their lives filling your heart with joy and thanks
