Thread: Pure Bred Staffy Looking for Love

  1. #1

    Default Pure Bred Staffy Looking for Love

    Hi,

    I am posting this for a friend and her family.

    We didn't really know where to start looking so I thought a dog forum would be the best place to start.

    Basically, my friends has a 7 year old un-desexed pure bred Staffordshire Bull Terrier. His name is Harry and he is quite a stocky fellow and is a very light brown/tan colour. Very happy and friendly, and is looking for a female companion to complete him.

    Basically wanting to get some pups out of the little unit.

    Can anyone point me in a direction, whether it is on a forum or an individual that might be able to help the little fella find a mate?? If you could post below or alternatively call my friends directly on 0414386082 or 0416164200 it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Daniel

    OK I will bite........
    Has he had his health checks done & any genetic health testing?
    What qualities dose he have that makes you think you should breed him?
    What is his bloodlines & what colours where several generations of his family?
    At 7yrs he must have already had litters I assume what happened with them?
    If you think my questioning is weird you should propley not even read what others will say.

    If the dog is quite 'stocky,' he probably isn't a well-bred SBT.

    Is he papered and from a reputable breeder? And by reputable, I mean one who health tests (and provides evidence of this) for ataxia and other hereditary diseases SBTs can have.

    If not, there's really no reason to add another litter of subpar SBT pups into the world. The pounds are chock full enough of them already.

    Hang on.. no need to jump on the OP.

    If you have a pure bred dog then you will have to find a reputable breeder who will go through the paperwork and find the right match. There are costs for the health checks etc but the breeder will go through that with you.

    wow. didn't know I would get interrogated when writing this post. Basically, its a friends dog, they have tried breeding him before with no luck.

    I don't have any answers for the questions you just asked, but I will try and find out.

    All i know is that he is pure-bred and has papers. No idea about all the other stuff... As I said, just posting for a friend.

    I am not a dog owner myself and I am sure I will get slammed for saying this, but if a person had a disability i.e. some sort of hereditary disease then would you deny that person the right to have children?

    I know that is going off the matter and I understand you point, but please understand that they bought, what they gathered, as a pure bred Staffy for companionship and hoped that one day they could breed it.

    PS. He is 'stocky', as all Staffies are 'stocky'.

    Well, CrazyDog does have a very good point to point out. Should ask them these things first, and take it from there.

    Depending on the impact of the illness/ disease on the prospective offspring, yes.

    There is a good, informative thread stickied on this forum about 'backyard' breeding (as opposed to 'registered' breeding) that I would strongly suggest you direct your friends to (I say direct them, as they are the ones interested in breeding, you yourself may not find it relevant to yourself).

    The creation of puppies in a world with many unwanted dogs already in it is an important topic to many dog lovers. That said, if your friends are interested in breeding, a registered, reputable breeder (see Pugger's post above) will be able to help and guide.

    I did not feel I did. I just asked some questions that if I wanted to use the dog I would ask(I just want to add I do not want too) before even considering it.

    Why would anybody not ask these questions if they where interested in breeding with him. I would want a lot more than just your average backyard staffy to breed with so therefore their would be indepth questioning.
