    No worries. How does fostering work? An homecheck to see the backyard I guess? Also, is it viable to use a Animal courier if you don't have transport?

    Yes fostering does involve a "full" homecheck (the same that would be carried out for adoption) and the fosterer usually collects and returns the dog. If there is already a resident dog then that dog also comes to meet the foster dog and introductions are done on neutral territory to make sure they get on before the foster dog is taken home.

    We do not use Animal couriers.

    Do you have any other dogs that are suitable to be housed with kids?

    Yes we do, but if you are considering homing a dog I would suggest you submitted a questionnaire as our rehomers know our dogs inside out and will be able to tell you which are the most suitable for your circumstances.

    Our online rehoming questionnaire is on this link: https://rescueremedies.wufoo.com/forms/r7x3s5/ and our rehomer will come back to you directly to chat through it with you and answer any questions you may have.

    Staffies used to be called "the nanny dog". In the 30's/40's all the child nannies more often that not walked a pram and the children with a Staffie on lead on the handle. They are the best terrier breed for a home with children. Only bad press, lousy owners and hype have given them the undeserved reputation they have now. There is good and bad in all breeds just as there is in people.

    These dogs can live with children and would be fine with visiting children.
