    I know this treatment all too well, even had one lady pick up her jack russel and run away after he just went over to say hello at a off leash beach.

    But hard to tell without a full body picture.
    My boy is a pure English stafford with papers and weighs in at 27-28kg

    LOL But there is still no such thing as an English Staffy It is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier no English.

    That is still pretty heavy for a Stafford. At 11 months though and already 27 kgs..... likely Mak will put on a little more weight.

    I think it's easier to add the English in there - it may be a colloquial term BUT if it makes it easier for the general public to differentiate between the American and the Stafford then I don't see any problem with it.

    our boy isn't overweight as such .... vet said that he is normal but to be careful with feeding as we don't want him overweight.

    I saw a staffy in the pet barn so overweight the poor thing could hardly walk
    he looked like a Barrel on 4 legs...I was so sad to see that.... My boy will not be overweight I am extra careful now after seeing that poor dog.
    Guess some are bigger than others but you can obviously tell when a dog has a weight problem. Thanks for your input : )
