Tessa is on trial in her new home 💖. This sweet little girl is very shy with new people to begin with but just needs a little bit of reassurance and then she completely melts into you. She’s learning her basic commands she can sit and wait.

She’s learning to walk on a lead but she gets a little bit scared, so Tessa needs a new owner who’s going to help her come out of her shell. This sweet little girl has the most beautiful kind nature. She loves to sleep inside; snuggling in her foster mum’s bed or playing with her foster siblings. This cheeky girl is definitely sassy. She’s been around cats and they don’t bother her at all.

Tessa will make a loving family companion for someone willing to continue with her socializing and training. Staffies love company so a family with someone home a lot or another dog would be her ideal home.
