Can you offer a home to Staffie mother Poppy and her son Casey?

An inseparable doggy mother and son duo are looking for a new home together.

Dogs Trust Ilfracombe needs to find a joint home for Poppy, six and her four-year-old son Casey.

The Staffordshire bull terriers came into the rehoming centre near West Down after their owner sadly became ill.

As typical Staffies, they are playful, friendly and affectionate and love nothing more than spending their time together.

Centre manager Elise Watson said: "Taking on a doggy duo, especially when they are related, can be extremely rewarding - whilst it's double the responsibility, you'll also find that it's double the love.

"If you didn't know these two were mother and son, you'd soon guess when you saw them together. They are very attached and love each other's company and will happily spend endless hours running around after each other.

"Despite being related, they do have different personalities. Casey follows his mum everywhere and looks to her for encouragement, whereas Poppy is very independent. Both are super affectionate and love fuss and cuddles so if you're prepared to give tummy rubs and a behind the ear scratch, you'll have two very happy pets."

Both dogs are house-trained so could be left for short periods of time. They are looking for an active home and could live with children over the age of 12.

If you are interested in offering this super twosome a home, then please contact Dogs Trust Ilfracombe on 0300 303 0292 or visit at Hazeldene, West Down, on the main road between Braunton and Ilfracombe.
