CONSIDER A STAFFIE...

'Staffies are the most adorable dogs, who just want to be loved and are so sadly misunderstood. Everyone needs some Staffie love in their life!'

 

Staffordshire Bull Terriers, 'Staffies', are wonderful companions; loyal, loving, trusting and kind friends. People who share their lives with Staffies speak of their unwavering devotion, their desire to please, their kindness, their loving natures, their loyalty, and their protectiveness and love for children.

 

Hundreds of thousands of Staffies and Staffie crosses are dumped or relinquished in the UK every year. This is mainly due to them being massively over-bred, sold on the internet to anyone who has the money, taken on by people as the latest “trend” without any thought about the commitment needed, and then, when the novelty wears off, they are dumped, abandoned on the street, sold on internet selling sites, handed in to rescues… This is not the fault of the dogs. This is the fault of the people.

 

Consider A Staffie is a campaign by fundraising charity Pounds for Poundies. The aim of the campaign is to encourage people to consider adopting a rescued Staffie when they are looking for a new dog to join their family.

 

By adopting you save two lives, and in the process make the best friend you could ever hope for.
