Is a STAFFORD the right dog for you and your family?
From Karen Dawes:
Do you have sufficient time to devote to a dog?
Do you enjoy a dog who actively seeks human companionship?
Do you enjoy physical activities with a dog with high energy levels?
Are you able to devote time to training and socialization on a daily basis?
Will you be content with a dog who may not be able to interact with other dogs?
Will you be content if your dog must always be on leash when in pubic places?
Are you willing to help educate the public about the true nature of the breed?
Are you aware of, and willing to help combat breed specific legislation in your area?
On the lighter side, Lisa-Marie Mackie:
If you like an "in your face" kind of dog - the Stafford is right for you.
If you can cope with being loved to death - the Stafford is right for you.
If you have the time and money to replant the garden whenever your dog decides to renovate - the Stafford is right for you.
If you can afford to replace your leather shoes every second week - the Stafford is right for you.
If you don't like cats, rabbits or big chickens - the Stafford is right for you.
