I met a lovely staffie yesterday. He is huge, at least twice the size of a proper staffie, with long legs and tbh not really recognisable as being a staffie. I asked her if she was ever worried about him being taken by the police. She looked at me blankly and said why should he be. Another dog owner who was in the conversation said he could not be as he was not a banned breed and he was friendly. She did say she had heard that in city centres it was safer to walk staffies on the lead and muzzled but she did not seem aware of a problem at all. I was so surprised. She has another smaller staffie, still quite big but more recognisable and they both come from a breeder who does not agree with smaller dogs and is trying to get them bigger and bigger as that is what they were originally. I thought owners might be more aware that there are problems, albeit very unfair ones.
