Stripes the wonder pound dog

12 October, 2016

For months we wondered why Racing Stripes (Stripes for short) was still in the pound. He was a perfect dog and considering he spent almost 3 months there never became over excited or went kennel crazy. He was friendly to all dogs, even the reactive ones, and could sit for a treat. Where were his owners? Where did he come from? Answers we will never know.

But fortunately Stripes found love again in the heart of Rescue Hub volunteer Emily. He was adopted in early February 2016 a week after I got my Archie boy. Since then he has welcomed many foster cats and more recently a foster dog into his home without complaint. He takes everything in his stride including visit a few Rescue Hub fundraising events. Although he spent a very long time in the pound he has become the perfect dog for Emily who was attacked by a Staffy many years ago. We joke about her adopting Stripes, who is a Staffy cross, and how Emily has come a long way since her attack to now own one of the sweetest Staffy's I have ever met.

A very much loved Stripes posing for some images
