About Cruise

Cruise is a large, male Hunting – Pig Dog, aged 9 years old.


Hi, I’m Cruise and I’m a 9-year-old American staffy, living in Dunedin.

I’ve been a loyal, very hardworking hunting dog all my life.

My GREATEST passion is running alongside the quad!

Whenever my owner gets me on the bike, I jump straight off. I want to stretch my legs and GO!

If we’re hunting together for the day, I’ll RUN most of it!

Sadly, though, I’m not the speed demon I once was.

I’m also losing my hearing and I’m blind in one eye.

I won’t let the little things hold me back from FUN though!

The other day, while sitting on the quad bike with my owner, we had a chat.

He says he thinks it’s time for Cruise to just cruise.

Time to take it easy, he says, and enjoy the golden years.

He told me about pet life. Sounds right up my alley!

He thinks I’d be happy in a town home, with a good-sized yard to chillax in.

I’m a laid-back guy that gets along great with the dogs in my pack, so I’d be happy sharing my home with them, or fine solo.

I’ll stand my ground and won’t be pushed around with other dogs but I’m a GREAT canine mate to have!

Ok, so the bad news…

No cats in my new home, please! The evil stares; the hissing; that hunched back thing they do?

I’d be chasing those furry critters till the cows come home!

Speaking of cows, I haven’t met them yet, but in general, I’m not a good guy to have round stock – due to my career and all.

Fortunately, I’m ALL about the people. I love the young ones, aged 10 and 14, that I live with!

I’m not a territorial guy. Humans can come to my home and I won’t even bark!

I also live with free range chickens and I’m fine with them.

My owner says my name suits me well. Cruise by name AND by nature.

I’m not a playful type, you see. I’m just happy tootling round the place.

And when it comes to food, I’ll eat anything you’re offering but, to be frank, I’m happiest just following you round, nosing your hand for pats.

I’d choose a good pat any day of the week!

You know what? I’m a brave boy too. I don’t fret when you’re away.

A good, fenced yard and I’m fine left moseying round my home.

Oh, my owner wanted me to let you know that I’m not fixed.

He says he’ll be sad to say goodbye to his mate.

He’d like to trial me in my new home, to make sure I fit well there.

He’s also keen to hear updates bout how I’m settling in.

So, if you’re feline-free and looking for a chilled-out mate, why not cruise through life with me?

A bit about Cruise’s personality:
