Felted Handmade Sleeping Staffordshire Bull Terrier White Puppy Dog.
Sale Includes Donation to Little Angels Staffie Rescue in the UK.
If you'd like this little felted puppy, please see the listing on my Etsy shop here: Felted sleeping Staffy Puppy

This tiny felted white baby staffy is sleeping in a multi-coloured felted dog bed. His bed is made from wool in blue, green, pink, purple, orange, yellow & crimson. The puppy is made from white Shetland Wool. He is 4 &1/2" long and 3 &1/2 inches wide (at the widest point)

Everyone loves puppies! But there are enough abandoned dogs in rescues all over the world without anyone needing to buy a puppy....Don't buy a puppy! rescue a puppy or a dog instead! (or buy a felted puppy, like this one!)

Even if you do the right thing and rescue a dog or a puppy, please make sure you can keep your dog for the rest of its life!

I used to run a dog rescue, and I rescued mostly Staffordshire Bull Terriers, from 'death row' in pounds, and believe me, there are thousands of these poor dogs abandoned every year where I live in the UK, and most of them are put down due to lack of space in the dog pounds. It's a terrible, tragic situation for these beautiful dogs and yet people still keep over-breeding them, and people keep buying puppies and then abandoning them. The cycle goes round and round in a heart-breaking situation for Staffies.

This is why I'm donating £5 from the sale of every one of these little sleeping dogs to a dog rescue. I chose BADAW last time, (Barnsley & District Animal Welfare) as I know from when I worked in rescue, what a fantastic rescue they are and they are doing their absolute best to help the plight of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier in the UK. For this listing, I've chosen Little Angels Staffie Rescue, as they are an equally excellent rescue in much need of support!

 Please visit their website here: Little Angels Staffie Rescue

BADAW website Please visit this wonderful rescue and support their work for unwanted dogs.

I hope that there will come a time when I'm more established, that I'll be able to donate more than £5 to chosen rescues from each sale of a sleeping puppy. Roll on that day!

I have made this little sleeping baby Staffy with all the love in my heart for all abandoned Staffys, who have done nothing to deserve what they face every single day :(

Homeless mouse - will work for cheese!

Homeless Down & Out Little Felted Mouse Without A House Will Work For Cheese! If you would like to give him a home, go to Mrs Plop's Shoppe on Etsy

There's nothing as sad as a mouse without a house, but this poor little mouse is unemployed too :( As his sign says, he will work for cheese!

He's a very hard worker, and he has fantastic people skills. He just needs a break, so he can get back on his feet again. Everyone deserves a break and no one likes to see a mouse homeless!

This little felted mouse is 3 & 1/2 inches tall. He is made from grey Shetland wool. His scarf is green and blue wool.  His nose is pink alpaca wool, and his eyes are black glass beads.

If you think you would like to give a home to a down and out little mouse but maybe you have questions, please message Mrs Plop, she knows this little mouse well, and will be able to tell you anything else you need to know about him :)
