    Holly is our new rescue dog, we did a 252 mile round trip to pick her up from Ravenswood rescue center on the Cambridge/Norfolk border. HOLLY.JPG

    What a little cutie! Hope she settles quickly - though she's already looking fairly much in charge :):):)

    She was found by a dog warden wandering the streets of Greenwich in December and they think she is a Staffy x Whippet. :)

    Definitely a little bit of Staffy there - if so you will have a loyal friend and guardian for life.

    Enjoy each other.

    What a little beauty - looks like she is top of the tree already! I'm scared to ask - but is she your only one?

    Looks a little cracker!

    A while ago we met a couple in a(nother) MoHo on the carpark while visiting a NT property somewhere or another. They had a 'long legged and less rotund' Staffy and we commented about doggy's general slenderness, face looks like a Staffy but ?? The chap said he's what they call a 'Parsons terrier' - and they are recognised as that.

    Might Holly be a Parsons ?

    Not sure about that but I think some communities cross a staffy with a whippet and use them for poaching.

    Phew, I was worried and didn't want to ask - how has Sam taken to the interloper?

    Sam has taken to her quite well, but he does warn her off when she hangs off his neck with those little sharp teeth.
