Rafiki ~ 2 Year Old Male Staffy X Mastiff ~ $400

Hi, my name is Rafiki and I’m a big, clumsy, loveable giant. I am not yet used to getting attention all the time so I can be a bit needy, but I am slowly getting better at being independent.

I would do best in a home with someone who can give me lots of attention, or someone with another medium-large dog as I love to play but i can be a little clumsy with my big paws. I love other dogs but have only just learned to walk on a lead so I need someone who is willing to walk me on a relaxed lead as I get a little nervous meeting other dogs when the lead is held tight. My foster family has been walking me with a halti and I have been learning quickly how to be a good boy on walks.

I love going in the car and I will sit happily and quietly in the back, even on long drives. I absolutely love people, so much so that I usually try to sit on top of them. I just want to cuddle everyone.

My foster family has crate trained me and I sleep happily and quietly in my crate all night, I have been learning to sit on my matt when inside the house. I’m a bit of a fence climber so my new home will need to have secure fencing or be willing to put up an electric fence until I learn my boundaries, this worked instantly in my foster home. I don’t climb fences to run away, I just want to visit all the other people and dogs in the neighbouring houses. I have mastered sit, stay, wait for food and shake. I’m a fast learner, so if my new family is willing to teach I am more than eager to learn. I love having baths and often sit myself in the bath in hopes someone will wash me.

I like children but would be best suited to a house without small children as I am big and clumsy.

Rafiki is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and is up to date with flea and worm treatments.
