Poor pooch saved from hoarder’s home after she’s found next to 146 dead animals

An adorable Staffordshire Bull Terrier who survived a house fire is now looking for a new loving home.

Tammy was one of just two animals to survive a tragic fire, which saw nearly 150 animals die in a hoarding situation.

The eight-year-old Staffie-cross was kept with 148 other animals in the home, of which 146 died, Stoke-on-Trent Live reports.

The cute dog was thankfully saved by Team Poundie, before being handed over to the Senior Staffy Club to find her a new loving retirement home in the city.

The charity takes in Staffordshire Bull Terriers over the age of seven, and attempts to rehome the 'OAP pets' to give them the best golden years possible.

Due to her tragic history, Tammy has a large fear of travelling, and is terrified of getting into a car after likely never being in one.

As a result, she is looking for a loving home in Stoke-on-Trent.

A spokesperson for the Senior Staffy Club said: “Poor Tammy has not had the best life so far; she was one of 148 animals kept by a hoarder, and one of only two dogs who survived a terrible fire at their home in which the other 146 animals perished.

“Despite all her problems, Tammy is a happy little soul who loves her walks and has become a firm favourite with the volunteer dog walkers at the kennels. She’s also quite a beauty, with her white coat and black eye patch.

“As is common among older Staffordshires, Tammy has suspected arthritis that has given her a ‘funny’ walk, so she is having some Yumove supplements and the vet is trying her on Loxicom, and she has improved.”

The beloved terrier recently celebrated her eighth birthday at the rescue on August 10, where volunteers threw her a party with presents and pupcakes.

The other surviving canine, Holly, is also in the care of the Senior Staffy Club and is under assessment for rehoming.
