I was there when he arrived at the pound and I felt really sorry for him. But he looks like if he has been well cared for until now. Dog warden said that he was told that he was born like that. I wonder, obviously he never used that leg so maybe he should have it had amputated when he was a puppy confused But anyway he did not seem to bother at all about his leg and was walking around like any normal dog.
He is a surrender so he needs help ASAP.

Butch (formerly Yankee) Staffy Boy with deformed leg

Post  Kazza on Sat Apr 12, 2008 5:02 am

This gorgeous guy is now in foster care with Doggymad cheers cheers She's already had him at the vets and they say that his leg is not bothering him so they're not going to do anything about it. Isn't he handsome?

Post  Doggymad on Mon Apr 14, 2008 8:01 am

poor Butch has had to go back to the vets he has very bad Canker of the ear and scratched it until it bled ' he got very cranky and his earing was getting worse ' and cause he was built like a tank i couldnt risk haveing hin in the house with the kids ' he is ok with them but if they make sudden movemaents or pat him without him seeing them first he gets a fright so would defo suit a home with no young kids ' he has to stay in the vets for a few days and then sadly into kennels for 2 weeks then he will be goin to a fantastic girl in Clare who will teach him some basic skills and has no kids so she can help him better than me ' so Martina would appreciate any donations towards his kenneling' i wil try get some money up myself as i feel guilty but all help appreciated xxxxxx thanx xx

Post  Kazza on Fri Aug 22, 2008 4:28 pm

Here's a quick summary of Yankee to date from his previous fosterer....

YANKEE is a disabled one and a half year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He was born with a deformed front leg which causes him no pain but does slow him down a bit, and he is deaf in one ear. He is neutered , fully vaccinated and fully house trained. He LOVES people and company and is very good with other dogs and is living currently with two cats and 2 other dogs.

He is a great character who charms everyone he meets and is very playful, however long walks are too difficult for him. He is excellent on the lead. He loves trips in the car and sleeping on the couch. He can be left in the house alone for 2 to 3 hours and is not destructive.

He would be a good companion for an existing dog or would also be happy as the only dog.

Typically of his breed he can be bouncy ( yes even on 3 legs!) so a home with older children ( over 14 ) or none at all would suit best.

If you are looking for a loyal companion to take for short walks and share your home please contact Martina on 086 2228902.

Home checks will be carried out and back up support provided.

Collected Yankee on Friday. I thought when the vet brought him out to me, he would hobbling etc... Boy was i wrong, he charged at me and bombarded me with kisses, then lay on the floor for belly rubs. He was a "gentleman" in the car - took him a few mins to find his spot and lay there for the remainder of the trip. On way home, rang my OH to tell him i found the vets ok and tell him how great yankee is, got pulled over by the police and recieved 2 penalty points and an 80 fine. Yankee's well worth it though Wink
My OH came out to greet him and my god, yankee loves him, i agree with what Doggymad said in a previous post, he LOVES men, when the OH is around, i don't get a second glance!!
He sleeps in the spare room upstairs on his doggy bed and there isn't a sound from him besides the snoring.
He is totally house trained and goes to the back door when he wants to go out.
He gets around like every other dog, he goes up and down the stairs, jumps on the beds, sofa's etc. He loves playing chasing in the back garden and gets really excited and licks you to death. I bring him for small walks daily, nothing too demanding.
He has lost a good bit of weight since the last pictures were taken and hopefully i'll have some new one's for you tomorrow.
I do think he would thrive in a house with other doggys as companions. Have been in the company of good few doggys on our daily walks and gets along fine with them. He is a total people person and loves affection and attention. All the neighbours love him so he's not short of belly rubs.
Have heard him bark once so far and that was because OH was coming in from work and yankee was up on the sofa looking out the window and seen him and got all excited. He is a very undemanding dog. I am holding onto him for 3 weeks and hopefully his forever home will find him in the meantime. Please please, don't let the fact that this gentleman has 3 legs put you off, Yankee deserves a family that he can call his own permanently.

Would one of the FOB moderators be able to do this as i don't have edgar's contact details - hopefully we will be able to find his forever home sooner as i can only hold him until the 14th sept as I have 3 day work course in cork the following week.
Quick update - my little buddy is doing great. He really loves any human affection and adores other doggys big or small. Had him out on a longer walk yesterday and he was great. By god he can run fast when he wants to.
He has a dust mite allergy which he's been treated and is under control with steroid tablets - half a tablet every second day except Sat, Sun and mon - where he gets half tablet every day. No problems with his ear but still have to give him drops every second day and not a bother to him - i just put them in his ears while he's asleep.
I've said it before and i'll say it again, i feel yankee would thrive in an environment with other dogs as companions - he's a fantastic all rounder.
My mam and niece have been doggy sitting him for last 2 days while i've been in work and i collect him on the way home. It so funny, this morning, did the usual, woke up, let yankee out the back garden to do his business, gave him tablet. got his stuff ready to bring down to mam and loaded it in car - yankee got in the car and sat in front seat and would not move - so closed front gates, left car door open and got my niece to watch him while i got ready. He didn't move from car. Got into car and the tail start wagging and he got all excited just because we were going in the car. It was so funny.He is a typical wiggly, friendly, loveable cuddle monster of a staffy.

Hi Sarah,

If you right click on any of the pictures on this thread and then "copy image address" you can then paste it into your forum and the pictures will appear in the thread.

I'll do up a blurb about him and email it to you.

Karen.

Post  Floyd2006 on Wed Aug 27, 2008 1:04 pm

Hi Maxi, my name is Davi, I'm new to Friends of Ben. wave I was having a look at dogs for rehoming and came across the gorgeous Butch! Since my baby Floyd passed away I've been looking for another wee puppy with personality. Floyd was an American Pit and a total ambassador for the breed, he even tried to get baby kittens to feed from him! Bit eejit.

Anyway, I'm moving house to a (supposedly) pet friendly one. I'll be meeting with the landlord on Wednesday and I was hoping that Butch hasn't been snapped up by some lucky git!

If all goes well I'd be able to offer him a home in a beautiful secluded house in the Wicklow mountains, with plenty of forest walks and heaps of company. Of course a homecheck would be welcomed, I used to do some volunteer work for different agencies so I understand the proceedures. Sorry this is such a long and wandering reply, he's so beautiful he's distracting love
