Socks is a 13 and a half year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. He’s very active for his age but is looking for somewhere to live out his golden years. Socks is looking for an adult only home with no visiting children. He can become very boisterous when over-excited and does mouth quite hard – with a particular affinity for long sleeves. He’s been lovingly compared to a “bull in a china shop” and tends to use his head to remove anything (including people) he deems to be in his way.
That being said, he’s a really lovable old man, vocal when he wants something from you (but aren’t we all!), and loves nothing more that shredding up a tennis ball on a sunny afternoon.
Socks will want to meet any perspective owners a few times, so he can get to know you, and so that you become familiar with his demands. This is to ensure whomever is lucky enough to welcome this boy into their lives does so knowing what this amazing character needs to be happy.
We think Socks may have lived a relatively sheltered life, and he came into us with a nasty eye infection and a skin condition, which luckily has been improving. His new owners will need be able to upkeep this with regular vet visits to ensure this doesn’t reoccur.
