    She would follow me to the bus stop when I went to school, be waiting for me when I got off the bus, yet others in the street we scared of her and would cross the road - she wasn't very big!

    When the owners moved we begged them to let us keep her, but they wouldn't let us. We were heartbroken.

    Because of Blackie, I've alway had a soft spot for SBT's - and even 30 years later I look for another Blackie - I couldn't believe it when about 6 months ago I got some mail for a neighbour a few properties down the road, so I dropped it off, and who comes running out but a Blackie clone! Whenever I drive past I always say "Hello Roxy"! Luckily she seemed to be much loved.
    Beautiful story...thank you for sharing it with us

    aww what a heart warming story, thank you for sharing

    Poor Blackie, i do feel for the old girl for having such horrible owners

    SBT also known affectionately know as THE NANNY DOG & your story just goes to show why the SBT is known for that well deserved title.

    Ha ha you're probably right. I was just amazed because it's about a six foot tin fence..Did not expect it! Oh well I guess I'll have to put him the scary pile too.

    I dont like really little breeds like JRT's. I havent had alot of hands on experience with them, but the couple I have met in passing have been very yappy and nippy and the one that lives in our street constantly terrorises my two and no one will do a damm thing about it.

    I am much more of a large breed person.

    I'm beginning to realise not all SBT's are as scary as the ones that I've met. But a bad experience (or owners, for that matter) can ruin what little you know about a breed. It's wonderful to hear all these great stories, and they've being getting so much praise, I kinda want one now!

    I go through phases of wanting a staffy and wanting to be as far away from them as possible. Ahhh too hard!

    Dis before I put up the wire around the top of my yard, both Mully and Bailey could jump our fence! No run up or anything just sit at the bottom look up and SPRING!!! our fences out the front are 6ft as they are around the side of our house. The one backing on to our neighbours behind us is 8ft when we had some not so nice people living there who used to tease Mully (before Bailey came a long) and she would jump up and sit on the top of the fence and watch them

    No need to put him on the scary pile...he is just jumping a fence. Not good if he is aggressive but ok otherwise...not for his owner though

    hat's exactly what he did! Usually he's a very scary dog (He used to look through a hole in the fence and growl at Terry) But this was so randomly funny. It was like SPRING, AWAY WE GO!
