    Default Breeding Staffordshire Bullterriers

    Hi all,
    I am the proud owner of a fabulous 5yr old purebred male staffordshire bullterrier. We are VERY interested in breeding him. We have never shown him and thus are finding it hard to enter the breeding circles as most breeders want show credentials. However both Buba's full sisters (from the same litter) are Aust. Champ. and one has had her first litter this year very successfully. He is from very good bloodlines, and is the last breeding male in his bloodline so we want to continue the good genes.

    Bub's is the most even tempered, affectionate dog so not only is he good to breed from on looks but if you are interested in breeding for temperament then this is the dog for you. We are really hoping that someone may know of, or be interested themselves in breeding from him. Please contact us if you want to know more.

    We live in Sydney.

    Hope to hear from anyone with advice on where to seek breeders or those who are interested themselves.

    Hi Bubadog,

    I work in animal welfare, mostly with companion animals (dogs and cats) living on death row in NSW pounds and shelters.

    Staffordshire bullterriers are one of the most over represented breeds in shelters and pounds across the country.

    One companion animal is killed every four minutes in pounds and shelters in this country which is tragic beyond belife. 60,000 family pets in NSW alone this year were killed.

    I find it difficult to know that while healthy, rehomeable dogs (many staffies) are being killed why are we breeding more? Why are we not rehoming animals already born?

    Please think very carefully before you breed. If you are interested i finding out a little more please visit - Home Page if you can manage it, take some time to watch the will upset you but you will be greatly educated by the experience.

    Hi Bubadog,

    I'm afraid I also agree with Billy. One of the most common mixes here in AU is the Staff. Add that to the fact that so many of them are killed because they are not suited to their 'impulse' owners, they are also very hard to breed. Most Staffs require a ceaser to even have the pups, otherwise, chances of survival are pretty low. Here is something that happened a few months ago that has left me really sad. I hope you will understand why Breeding Staffs should be left to the proffessionals.

    One of our neighbours did a good deed and rescued a Staffie. Black & white male, not even a yer old, and FULL of energy. The reason he was rescued? We'll get to that. His first owner wanted a Staffie, tough looking dog, you know, so he went and bought a nice-looking Staff pup with papers for $800. (Not from a proffessional breeder.)Anyway, after a while, the guy's girlfriend decides she's had enough of a pup ripping up her house. So she tells the guy "It's me or the dog." The fact is that the guy should have been a responsible enough owner to train this pup (believe me, he wasn't trained at all) and to not get a dog befer even considered these circumstanses.
    So our friend rescues a wild, stupid dog from death, the size of a full-grown Staffie-and yes, intact too. Anyway, we go over to his place to feed the dogs when he's away for a few days. The dog is stupid, and very much a big puppy. Our friend has four other dogs, a Ridgeback, a Cattle Dog, another Staffie male (fixed) and a small terrier cross. (intact), called Boots. A few weeks later, we hear from our friend that the Staffie was playing with the little dog and he just shook him up like a little toy and killed him. It was really sad, that a dog who was just ageing had to be killed so quickly. The Staffie was then shot.
    I can honestly say that I never even thought that the young Staffie would do that. It just goes to show that even nice looking dogs can quickly turn killer. I guess my point is that no matter what the breed, no dog should be bred unless CAREFULL research has been done on EVERYTHING. This takes more than a decade to do. And pedigree means nothing. I own a female Border Collie who's mother had papers. There is no way I would ever breed her, she is just not the right in conformation or temperament. That is an important thing to consider when you are literally continuing the breed. Your dog is probably yours because it is not show-quality, meaning that if your breeder thought he should be bred, they would havekept him. No offence meant to your dog, this is just the way things are sometimes. He's probably pet-quality because of some minor flaw that disqualifies him from the showring. Some dogs of other breeds cannot be shown because they have the wrong colour toenail.
    Do you understand where I'm coming from?
