Hello from me (rob) and my new doggy bailey from northampton. Bailey is 17 months old and we have just rehomed him.He is a beautiful example of a staffy, loves cats, not really bothered by children and loves a good walk.

The previous owner taught him a few basic commands but no manners lol. He has chosen me as his pack leader but hasn't taken to my other half very well. She's quite upset because he's such an amazing personality and she'd love to get to know him. I think the issue is that she is in a cast with a broken ankle so hasn't been able to walk him, feed him or do much but sit on the sofa so maybe he sees her as a little strange? Also she has crutches.

Obviously we are taking it slow with bailey and will be getting a behaviourist, mostly to show my other half how to bond with him as she's never had a dog before. Also we have had him neutered today and started his vaccines as he hasn't had any at all.

Besides him giving my other half the odd growl and he doesn't like her petting him, we have no other issues and love him dearly and have secured him a new and loving home :)

Any advice welcomed, thank you and hello :)

Hi and  welcome 

Could your other half give Bailey some treats whilst sitting Down, that might help them to bond. The crutches might also be scaring Bailey. Do you know anything about his past?

I'm sure you'll be fine and I look forward to more pics!  spinner smile

Hi guys, haven't had much time for the internet. Been training Bailey and taking him for nice walkies :)

Thank you for all of your replies, I appreciate that a lot.

Well bailey is well settled in now and his separation anxiety is so much better. He's come such a long way in such a short time, and he's being nice to my girlfriend now lol x

But the cats are minus a scratch post because he ate the hell out of it :/ woops.

Thats really good news, it does take a while for a rescue dog to settle but sounds like he is already coming along in leaps and bounds.

Does he get on OK with the cats?
