    Foxxy....Staffies are the bestest dogs ever!!! It is their owners that give them a bad rep! We used to have a chocolate brindle called Bruin. I would love some when I have my own place!! :D

    Fantastic dogs aren't they, I had a Staffy for 16 years and he was the softest, funniest little dog you could ever meet. They are the total opposite of the image the media has created for them. Glad you've been converted :D.

    I'm glad you finally got to meet one. They are fantastic dogs, and most are soft as anything. The one's that aren't would be if they hadn't of been brought up wrong! They are so loving and trusting, and I would recommend them to anyone! :D

    Awww bless...good to see your over your fear!

    I've always loved them but got a bit cautious after Harvey was attacked but there's a great girl, reddy coloured, that I see regularly that I adore! She 'sings' outside the shop when her owner is inside - never heard that before! She is such a sweetie!

    Staffies are wonderful, there's nothing wrong with them :) it's just some of the meatheads that get hold of them that have the problem :(

    I have a 14 week old Staff and he's so loving. When anyone comes in he rolls over for his belly to be tickled and he gets on great with my other two dogs. He goes out for the first time on Monday. :D

    They are a lovely dog its just the odd idiot out there that gives them a bad name. We have one in my local park. Not met him yet and hope I don't. He lets his dog attack other dogs and stands there laughing. The last one I heard about was an old lady's dog the dog though knocked her over trying to get at her dog (which was on a lead). She said the lad just laughed and never asked her if she was ok. :mad:

    They're lovely dogs, a friend of ours has two bitches, most weekends they come over to us or we go to theirs and they play all day/night with our spaniel.
