    I just went to the doctors...There was a little girl in tears because she had gone to pet the staffy and s/he bit her. That makes me sad because I can see both sides. The kid wanted to pet the dog, and the dog was grouchy and maybe scared. In that situation, without knowing everyone involved, who's side do you take?

    I wish people would muzzle dogs that have a tendency to nip when frightened, would really help things.

    It is a difficult situation without knowing the full story. Where did this happen? Why did this happen? Was the dog "pattable"?

    Like I said...ANY Staffy that is aggressive towards humans ESPECIALLY kids must be PTS...no exceptions! And yes...if you have a dog that you know is not "sociable" it SHOULD wear a muzzle in public!

    This was outside the doctors office. They were tying the dog to a post, clearly intending to go inside. A mum was holding the little girls hand walking into the doc's office, the kid reaches out with her other hand to pat said dogs back and he growled and nipped her. From what I saw it didn't break the skin but it was pretty nasty. Not knowing anything about the kid or dog, all I could do was feel bad for everyone involved.

    Myf, I think you and Roly don't need to be offended. I don't want upset anyone but I genuinely think you have been misinformed and Roly is a Tenterfield Terrier. Gorgeous for sure but not JRT.

    Off topic but...

    A friend brought a Tenterfield here last week and she scratched my son on the face..I think she felt harassed.. I did warn my son but he wanted to find out for himself My son claimed she bit him, but it looked like scratch marks. Lucky he wasn't bitten, in hindsight I should have been much firmer with my son and punished him or something before the incident happened.

    I don't have much experience with dogs, but I just wanted to mention that my mother-in-law had a staffy, Roly, who passed away just recently. He was the gentlest of dogs - my nieces and nephew used to curl up with him in his bed. My older daughter would stay with my MIL when Roly was in his later years and she was only a toddler, and despite being mostly deaf and blind, he was still always gentle with her.

    So I have no problems at all with Staffys
