Dogs Trust Shoreham dog of the week: Meet Pascoe, a big dog with a larger-than-life character

This big, nine-year-old American bulldog cross staffie has a larger-than-life character that matches his stature.

Dogs Trust Shoreham staff say Pascoe is friendly and loveable, always eager to spend time with people he knows and equally enjoying greeting strangers on walks.

The team says that despite his age, Pascoe still has lots of playful energy, so would enjoy an active lifestyle where he can explore on adventures and play games in the garden with his family.

After he has burnt off some steam, Pascoe loves to snooze the day away on a cosy bed. He is a smart dog and knows basic commands, as well as being fully housetrained.

Pascoe is a big dog and potential owners should be confident of managing his size and strength

The team at the Brighton Road rehoming centre says Pascoe has had a lot of changes recently and, being a complex dog, he can often find certain aspects of life more of a challenge. He becomes particularly unsettled when his routine is altered.

Pascoe needs a steady home environment with a supportive family who could offer consistency and dedicate lots of time to him.

Anyone living at the home or visiting should be aged at least 16 and although Pascoe could live with a rabbit, he cannot live with cats or dogs.

Walks in less-frequented areas are needed and potential owners should be confident of managing his size and strength, as he can be strong on his lead.
