Anyone own a Staffordshire Bull Terrier??
In the next few weeks I'll be looking at getting another puppy. I will be getting one from the rspca but I'm going to ring until they either have a purebred or cross breed of the type of dog I want. Right now I'm leading towards a Staffy. I think they are gorgoeous, I like my dogs to be and act like a dog (no dogs I can dress up etc....they're cute but not for me), be energetic but enjoy a cuddle and not too aggressive. A little protective is ok but no more. I'll be moving later on this year and don't know what size yeard I'll end up with but no matter what dog I get or what size yard it has it will get a walk for at least 30 minutes every single day, will be played with and have mind simulation as well. I read that these dogs were good in the city or the country and that the only thing that might not like is living with another dog. My b/f is not the biggest animal fan so there's only one dog at a time anyway. I just want to know good points and bad points from people that own them. I've done so much reading and am pretty sure a staffy is for me but is there anything I should be warned about first? I also have two rabbits but introductions would be slow and if they couldn't get along then I'm fine with that cause the rabbits are mainly indoors anyway. I need to know bad points cause I've just been through a horrible experience with Nacho and he was put to sleep yesterday at just 21 months and I am not going to do it to myself again. I know this post probably seems quick after Nacho but I've known that Nacho was going since November and I'm grieving for him....but sometimes I just have to think of my new puppy to stop the tears for Nacho. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanx guys!
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
