Have you ever considered offering a Staffordshire Bull terrier a forever home. The answer maybe "no" it maybe "yes" but before you decide please see our




and reasons you may be surprised by for considering a Staffordshire Bull Terrier







We have a clothes bank at our rescue. Any unwanted clothes/ shoes (no linen) please do bring along 



Alot of people are not able to adopt or volunteer but you can still make a dog's wish come true. We also are in desperate need of some of the more boring but essential items like black bags.

Send one of our dogs a gift please see our 


Amazon wish list





Welcome to our website and we hope you find the perfect companion for youself. Before you start your search please do take a minute to read about our appeal to find loving new homes for some of our overlooked residents. At Animal Helpline we try to help any breed who needs our help space permitting, for this reason a majority of the dogs we do take into our care are the ones who may wait longer for a new home.

A large percentage of people looking to help a rescue dog will want a Spaniel a Labrador a small dog or a Collie type. The plain crossbreed the Staffordshire Bull terrier the large dog will all be bottom of most peoples list or not even make that list.

This appeal is a push for that dog, the one people will pass and not even give a second glance to, the one who if you saw a picture of you would quickly pass over, the one who may not have the looks but the nature that would just be perfect for you.

Terrier cross Puppies 9 weeks old


These puppies were born in rescue. Mum is an exceptionally well balanced Staffordshire cross. She has already got a home booked as she is such a lovely steady girl.


There is a mix of boys and girls; light brindles and fawn puppies still available. They are looking for new families who need to be prepared for lots of fun and hard work, which comes with owning a pup. The new family will need to have someone to be around for most the time. Also a family who will continue training so each will become a well-adjusted adult These pups are in foster in the Rutland area.

Betty is a 12 to 15 year old female Staffordshire Bull terrier who would dearly

love a new home to call her own. She could live with another calm canine

or as a only dog. Betty enjoys the quiet life, adores a cuddle and is good

around the home.
