    Yes, tweets, a longer finer staffie face but I guess she has an awful more other dogs in her background. A typical cross breed, a mongrel

    Awww isn't she lovely tho she does look sad.
    god bless you 3 dogs for taking her into your home and giving her a second chance.

    can I ask do you think she will be a foster or will you be tempted to keep her?
    Originally posted by Tinasmummy
    Definitely foster only Tinasmummy. She is too young a dog for me. I just couldn't give her the exercise she needs on a permanent basis. She is adorable though

    You have the heart of a lion Susan.....she is gorgeous and such a lucky girl to have found you
    Originally posted by TrulyMadly
    Aww thank you TM. When I offered to bring her home and not just transport her, I hesitated to press that button to send message and then thought, what have I done But I am glad I did it. She so deserves another chance as she is a gorgeous dog

    She has been sleeping lots tonight in amongst all the toys she gathered up, then she had a good play with each of them in turn. Then cried for her supper so I fed her and now she is sleeping on sofa. She has brought one of my shoes through earlier but when I said no, she dropped it. Plus she tried to 'play' with my cushions so again a sharp no and she pretended that wasn't what she was doing anyway

    My main task tomorrow is to move even more things out of her reach

    Lovely to see Jelly posting
