A SMILEY Staffy is in need of a home after returning to an animal Shelter.

Judy was rehomed previously however has since returned to Danaher Animal Shelter in Wethersfield.

Typical of her breed, Judy is a sweet natured dog, and despite her senior age of eight is full of energy.

She has some arthritis in her legs, but this does not stop her getting around the home, aside from stairs.

Judy is on a joint supplement as Danaher and it is recommended it is continued if and when her new home is found.

She is not comfortable around other dogs, therefore needs to be the only pet in the house, and would prefer quieter walks with fewer dogs around, in woods or around lakes.

She is however good natured with everyone she meets, and has contact with some children, only needing a small amount of further training with car travels.

A spokesman for Danaher said: "Judy's ideal home would be an adult only home that can provide her with stability and a good routine.

"Judy is most happiest when she has a routine and she can predict her day, a good routine should include similar walking and feeding times daily as well as a similar owner working hours.

"We are also looking for owners with Staffordshire bull terrier experience who understand exactly what Judy is all about and needs."
