More about me....
I have found myself in the pound and have been really stressed as i don't know anybody here. The rescue stepped in to help me and i am now in their kennels. I have been loosing weight due to stress but they are trying to help me by giving me good food and treats. I get overexcited around leads and will grab them - the rescue girls found that i like squeezy cheese so they have been trying to distract me with it and it seams to be working. Once i am out of the kennel i love to walk, i could walk for miles taking everything in around me.
I like to play with rope toys, balls and stuffed toys, I love my food and can sit, stay and give a paw for a treat. He likes being in the car but will bark a bit, we are working on this with him.
Levi doesnt like the rain, he thinks he will melt if he goes out in it lol
UPDATE May 2023
This adorable little cutey really needs to find his special human and sofa!! He is the dinkiest little cutey I've ever met. He is initially a lead ragger when he gets over stimulated at first when coming out for walkies but he has been doing super at learning not to do this for walks now round the fields and in the paddock once he gets going.
He has also been learning some pattern games and he is a super intelligent little lad. He loves his toys, loves his treats and loves affection.
He is an older boy and he deserves to be having those home comforts and to find that special someone that can shower him with love and affection allowing him to chill out in his later years. Someone with patience and commitment that is able to let him unwind and continue to help him through the lead work. Which will all come together when he settles on all 4 paws.

Levi went out on foster for a week but it didn't work as he was vocal and growly. He never showed this at the kennels. Since he has come back Levi has lost lots of weight and suffered sever kennel stress and separation anxiety.
He is now currently in a home with one of our committee/volunteers.
September 2023 - from his foster mum
Levi really needed to decompress, he is vocal we get lots of staffie chat and growls. When he 1st arrived he barked a lot, this has stopped, as has the tail chasing - all stress related. He was so stressed his fur fell out, he was hyped up and couldnt relax.
Now 4/5 weeks on and we are seeing a different wee boy. He is sleeping/relaxing more, he is still vocal we get lots of staffie chat and growls. This is his way of communicating with us and we listen to him. He loves meeting all his new people that come to see him. He will bark on initial meeting but we ignore that and Levi does well in using his nose to check out the visitors then his tail never stops wagging and he turns on the charm.
He growls now because i don't give him treats quick enough, He has no patience's, so we are teaching him impulse control, hes a quick learner. He has a beautiful cheeky character that makes us laugh. He has a special friend called Anja, she is a trainer and has been helping him with his lead issues which has improved ten fold. We can now het a collar and lead on him and he will leave it when asked. This is massive for him. Anja is working with Levi on everything, she loves his wee character and his staffie noises/chat.
I have 3 pf my pwn dogs, Levi is separate from them. They can see each other through stair gates and we have had no issues at all with Levi and them. He says hello nicely and walks away, he can sit near them (other side of gate) and take treats. In time we will do more intros as we feel Levi would befit from being around other dogs.
He loves his bed and will get right under the covers, snores his wee head off. Levi needs an owner that will let him be him . He needs time to adjust and relax in a new home. He will give you this all back with love and appreciation at giving him the time to understand this wee boys quirks. We all love this wee guy, hes such a wee dude x
