PLONK – adopted

Macedon Ranges, Victoria
English Staffy • 3 months • Male

Yes, yes a purebred blue english staffy boyo puppy in rescue AND available for adoption!!!
Whats the catch with Plonk you wonder? Well there really isn’t one. Plonk arrived in care within hours of birth due to the fact he had a cleft lip and small cleft palate (just his hard palate). Although he needed round the clock 24/7 care as all clefties do, he is now a *big* (still tiny) boyo ready to take on the world with his extreme staffy cuteness.
Plonk is pretty much what you would expect from a rescue staffy. Adorabull, sassy, cheeky, sweet, affectionate, gentle, eager to please, smart and so many other things. He is a lover not a fighter, has a tail that wags with that sweet sweet staffy vibration of pure love.
Have you ever owned a staffy? Love them? Then this puppy is for you.
Have you never owned a staffy? Always wanted one? Then this puppy is for you.
If you’re single and just want a life long companion. In a relationship where your partner understands that Plonk 1st, them 2nd. Have a young family with young kids and want a rescue puppy to grow with the kids. Are retired and want a little staffy nugget to clean up after the grandkids.
This little nuggety nug potate is honestly suited to just about any adopter as long as you can tell us why we should pick you over all the others.
Like all of our LoP babies, we have a full expectation that adopters will stay in close contact with the rescue throughout the life of your adopted doggo, so please take that part into consideration before applying.

BEFORE  you read Plonk’s adoption criteria it is extremely important that potential adopters give great thought and communicate in their adoption application as to what their home set up and routine plan is for the first few weeks/months if they are the successful adopter of this most precious pupper. Plonk cannot be settled in over just a weekend and then left on a Monday home alone while you return to work… There needs to be a plan outlined so that his foster family can feel assured he is going to be set up for success in his new home.


Deal breakers:

– Plonk’s new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure he grows to be the best doggo he can be.

– Daily walks and outings are a must, Plonk loves to keep up with the goings on of the neighbourhood

– A specific balanced, healthy diet is very important for Plonk due to his cleft lip and lower immune system

– Plonk must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as he pleases, this guy would not much enjoy being left outside.

– The lucky adoptive family of Plonk will need to be ready to keep in regular contact with his foster mama at Life of Pikelet throughout the duration of his life.

Non deal breakers:

– Plonk has grown up with many foster siblings and is used to their constant companionship so a home with a  friend or 2 is preferred. A home with no other dog will be considered if the family is home more often than not.

A home in Victoria is preferred however interstate applicants will be considered, potential forever families would need to come to HQ for a meet and greet


– Other than his cleft lip, Plonk is in wonderful all round health and has no health issues or problems to date.


**We do our best to review and reply to all applications within 14 days, please be patient.

Plonk’s adoption fee is $1200 and includes:

– Microchipping

– Desexing after 6 months of age (adoption under desexing contract clause and age dependant on assessment of cleft lip)

– Up to date vaccinations, flea, tick & worming treatments


MICROCHIP NUMBER 93502000027814


**Located in foster care in Victoria, Plonk is available for interstate adoption however this comes with the firm understanding that if an interstate candidate is successful, Plonk’s new family will need to come to HQ to complete adoption paperwork and travel home with him. Interstate candidates please see above in deal breakers/non-deal breakers.  Video footage of yard & home will also need to be provided along with the agreement to a possible home check by a local Life of Pikelet rescue volunteer.
