lol, I havn't seen that. Staffordshire bull terrier. They get a bad name and rep because of the dick head owners that use them for fighting, but under the right owner they are the most fun, playful dogs ever.

Baley is so weird, she stares outside of the window when it gets dark outside and starts barking......She's also got a phobia of balloons lol

Haha she's awesome man, I love Staffies. I used to be terrified and beyond scared of them, as one attacked my first Greyhound/Collie Lurcher Buzz(now passed away ). But I learnt my hate was purely down to fear and ignorance.

All 'aggressive breeds' are purely given that rep down to owners buying/breeding them and training them for that purpose. It's completely down to the owner.

Since the attack I've met a wide number off Staffs and English Bull terriers that are just awesome awesome dogs. It sucks so many breeds get a bad rep for human mistakes. I'm just glad I learnt quickly I was wrong to fear an entire breed purely based on the actions of one dog.

I have a golden lab, best dogs ever, if I had the room for it, I would get like 3, one from each colour.

And so true about the dickhead owners, but it actually applies to a lot of dogs not only Staffs, but yeah, they get the most heat. There aren't bad dogs, only bad owners.

Awwww, poor buzz. I cried my eyes out when my older dog passed away, you get so attached to them. Like even Baley now is only 8 months old, but if she went away, I would be devastated.

Yea, horrible to hear about your dog getting attacked but it really isnt the dogs fault. You can turn a chiwawa into a little killing machine if you wanted to. It purely comes down to how you treat your dog and how you train it.

Any dog can be turned into a viscous little ****er with the right nob head of an owner. The difference is that staffs are very strong, built and can do a lot more damage than other dogs, so the dick heads use them. It really is sickening.

Yea, once you come into contact with one, you realise just how playful and lovable they really are. They love human attention.

Agreed 100%. Losing a dog is beyond heart breaking. Luckily he didn't die from the attack, he had 6 amazing more years. This dog just had him by the throat for 15 minutes and there was nothing anyone could do to remove him. At the time I was very young and my Mother was in complete shock and panic. He'd just locked his jaws around the neck and stayed there. The owned just sat down and lit up a cigerette and watched. THAT'S the kind of owners these people are.

It really is sickening that purely based on genetic trates these animals are abused. I'm glad a few get through to good homes like yours did man, she looks bloody comfy there haha

Yea, it really is emotional.

That must have been an horrific sight, especially if you were at a young age. I seen some thing very similar when I was younger too. Staffs get a lock jaw, where once they lock in, its almost impossible to get them to let go if they dont want to. With the dogs I seen, they were kicking the dog, even threw a brick at it, but it just would not let go of the other dog. Luckily the other dog survived the attack. It is horrible to watch, I cant even imagine what it would be like if it was your own dog getting attacked.

Yea, there are some sick people out there that just use these dogs for fighting and attacking, and they are proud of it. It angers me so much.

ha ha, yea she loves it man, shes such a happy dog. We keep her under the stairs at night time, but in the morning, when my mum or dad lets her out (i'm always the last one up!) she just sprints up stairs and lies by my feet under the covers. She wont move until i get up lol.
