Kush is our blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Born in June 2021, this post follows his journey through life with us in the woodlands, mountains, lakes & rivers of North Wales and is regularly updated with new content.


Kush is the son of Beau and Chase. Mum Beau has exactly the same colouring and markings as Kush but dad Chase is all white. Kush came from a litter of eight puppies with six brothers and one sister. Only Kush and one of the brothers were all blue like their mum, the other six puppies were mostly white with small blue markings.

8 to 12 Weeks Old

Kush had his vaccinations at this time but we wanted to get him socialised quickly so he came out for walks in a special dog rucksack we got cheap from Amazon. We gradually let him have more time down on the ground to imprint the Welsh mountains on him from the earliest possible time. By 10 weeks old he’d wandered with us around the lower and mid levels of the Ogwen Valley, been to the summits of Arenig Fawr, Llwytmor, Moel Siabod, Foel Fras and Drum mountains and a number of the Clwydian hill peaks.
