It beats me why staffy is allways listed as the primary breed in the X? The only conclusion I can come up with is it's a selling point or brand name.
I mean if you have an basenji and its been crossed with a staff, why wouldnt basenji be primary?
Because its just not cool beans thats why.. All in my opinion on things of course.
'What breeds your dog mate?'
'Staffy X mate.'
'ah yeah cool, nice dog'
'and what breeds your dog mate', talking to other person with same mix
'Besenji X bud.'.....
A ****ing what?!?

If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.
high number being staffyx. They are not going to deliberately decieve people
just because Bullies and APBT might not be as popular. Some may call APBT type dogs Amstaff so that they can be rehomed as being an APBT or x of one
can mean pts if not reclaimed in some States.
Danm staight, Bully.
I saw a beautiful Bull Terrier( I think it was. those are the ones with the major roman noses?) the other day. I think its the first time ive ever liked a bull breed. nope, second. i saw a really lovely staffy that day too. i like their personality so much, im actually considering one for my next dog.
they are also very good talkers, and can be taught words quite easily because it comes natural to them... Mortisha could say ''I love you" as clear as a person...
Sorry I'm late on coming into this thread, but I have had my hands full with my latest rescue.... because I volunteer rescue for the SBTCV we can only accept pure staffords and sadly cannot take crosses, however since I started I've had at least one dog a week and many times two... (two atm)
It seems to me that the most common reason a pure stafford is surrended is due to expanding family... people don't realise just how demanding they are, they are a family dog and insist on being part of the family... they really don't do well if left alone for long periods as they crave human companionship... they love kids, but can be rough at times, and need to be supervised (as do all dogs anyway)
The second most popular reason is seperation anxieties... most people want a quick fix and are not prepared to put the time and effort into the long term care of their dogs...
I have two rescues here atm, Jake is the most beautiful red boy, he was surrended because they are expecting their 2nd child and just don't have time for him, he hadn't been walk in heaven knows how long... he is only 18 months old... and not a tear was shed when he was handed to me...
The second girl was picked up from the pound she was on her last days... she is tiny... and has so many issues Im hoping I can help her.... Her toenails were so long they were rounded at the ends, all of them... she has a mark on her side which looks like a cigarette burn to me... she has massive seperation anxiety with me and litterly screams her lungs out when she can't see me... Day by day she is getting better, and I'm sure will be the perfect dog for the right person...
sorry gone off track.....
I'll 2nd your words about SBT's being very good talkers. I didn't want to mention about the "doggy words" that my 1st SBT would say, in case others here thought i was bloody looney or telling porkies.
Zeppelin would greet us repeatedly with this sound that sounded like "ELLOOOOOO", it was like he was saying "hello" to us when ever we came back home from being out etc or when friends etc visited. People that had heard Zep say "hello" to us were completely amazed by he's doggy "talk", even he's Vet & Vet nurse were gobbed smacked when ever they heard him talk/ greet them. The more we said "hello" to Zep the more he would repeat he's "hello" back....
Our beloved breed sure are 1 of a kind & thank goodness for that because that's what makes them so special & i wouldn't want them any other way.
