Thread: Staffordshire Bull Terriers

  1. #1

    Default Staffordshire Bull Terriers

    I've noticed that a lot of people here have staffys. I was just wondering if they are escape artists. I have seen a quite a few loose around the neighbourhood but didn't know if that was more because of the breed or the owners.
    We had a lovely girl come to the house today. She was so friendly I felt horrible that we had to take her to the pound but we didn't know where she came from.

    My Ralph only escaped once and that was with my GSD (he has been gone a long time now) almost 9 years ago! They went for a walk around the block and came straight home.

    Angel's only escaped twice and luckily it was under the fence to the neighbour's garden [different one each time!]. I don't think she has any great desire to run away, she just likes getting up to mischief!

    Yep.. SBT's sure are great escape artist's...


    My 1st SBT Zeppelin would chew he's way through out timber fence if i wasn't home & a thunderstorm struck, poor boy was absolutely terrified of thunderstorms & he would take himself for walkies 6 doors down to my PIL house for a "nana & pop" visit, or to our neighbour Sue (whom would spoil him with cuddles & with doggy treats), at least i knew he was in safe hands at PIL or Sue's house.

    At night we would lock Zep safely in the house if we were going out etc.

    Gee I must have been pretty luck with Ralph. Most places we have lived, he would have only had to jump three foot or so to escape. I know he can jump high, so I am thinking that he has never wanted to leave us except when he went for a walk around the block with Zookie.

    Staffs are reknowned escape artists! Those powerful muscles give them huge launch power, although I think they do it mostly if they get bored or don't get enough attention.

    Nice new siggie Boh!

    Same to you Von, when GSDs4Ever was going through how to update her sig, I thought would do the same thing!
