    Oh wow! Thank you! Misi = sometimes, he he. She's very lazy and stubborn but love her to bits.

    I don't care when people shorten it to Staffy and I haven't had a problem with it yet.

    The only thing that annoys me about dog names are crossbreeds that have 'designer names' such as 'labradoodle' You have a Labrador x poodle!

    I might just be jealous though, if I shorten Kimbas Mastiff x Staffordshire I get Mastaff which sounds like a bad infection...lol

    How on earth was I being rude? If I was going to be rude trust me when I say I would have phrased myself differently.

    I've been around dogs for 30 years - was in training for 15 of those. I have never met anyone who had problems with dogs being called staffys.

    2. A staffordshire bull terrier is a staffy - no one has issues with that, I am unsure what you are talking about?
    For people who think otherwise. This was my first post.

    How is ANYTHING said there rude?

    Fine Magdalena, you have issues and want to write in caps. You can type with your toes for all I care (though that would be one hell of a show). You're not perfect, I'm not perfect. If people want to sign up to this forum for the express purpose of abusing others they need to rethink how mature they really. Last week it was Choppa, this week me.

    Welcome to all the new members who joined to talk about dogs.

    Can anyone explain why Staffy would be seen as bad? I just assumed it was a shortening like "sheppie" or "rottie"?

    I have no real info on why Staffordshire Bull Terrier breeders and exhibitors like the term Stafford better than Staffy, but they often do.

    I guess maybe they are trying to afford their breed some distance and dignity away from the BYB type of attitude - "Staffys" are tough-guy dogs etc... ??
    I think the nickname Staffy or Staffy X can and often is applied to anything remotely bull-breed looking that is fairly short in stature, whether a Pitt, Amstaff, Bull Arab type or any heinz 57 sort of crossbred (mixed breed pigdogs spring to mind here also).

    Anyone else have ideas??
