Little George just turned 1 and just shy of 25kg. We rehomed his brother Zippy to a retired policeman and his wife and hes enjoying a very pampered life now and both me and Mrs Marshy very happy for him. Will probably take on more when we move home in next month or so (y)

"Lucky" she's 5 and loves to chase cats /rats ,birds infact anything that moves and given a chance does a Houdini to do just that generally with me leaping fences etc behind her. She thinks it's great fun despite my feelings on it.:frenetico:

Nice thread this, we thinking of another but don't know what's best to have with a young kid, I've heard labradors have a lot of tolerance for kids.

I saw a thing on the telly that said labradors were the most common to bite.

Staffies great with kids mate just some are badly treated or trained to do things they shouldn't! !!

Fair enough, I saw that they like the robust play and take to kids...this is why we're holding off as it's got to be a good well informed decision with having a young kid @Marshy don't think my Mrs would go for a staffy although I've know loads of lovely ones when I was growing up, I just think the bull terrier in the name would scare her off

Any dog can be a problem for young children as (depending on age) dogs are not toys you can pull ears or poke in the eye and expect not to get bitten !!?? My old staffie was subject to young toddlers doing this when my missus did child minding years ago. My staffie even had to be covered in the crb policy lol. Staffies can tolerate a lot more than most other breeds. It's up to you mate staffies have bad press but no dog would defend your child like a staffie would.

I'd have a staff if left to me
staffies are great with kids @Lodan, hence the reason they are know as the nanny dog,, i know its good to get a rescue dog but in your case i would recommened getting a puppy so it grows up with your child and is brought up the way you want,, forget all the bad press, a well trained and loved staffie is such a gentle loving dog

I'm getting a cockapoo beginning of October for the missus. Had a bernese mountain dog a few years ago. Loved that dog. Gave her some liver and onion one night as a treat. Have a cat, now, kitty.

They look so lovely but it's all that fur a pain in the behind day to day buddy?

Yeah the bernese was lovely. Great temperature. Used to get stopped by other dog walkers every time I took her out. But yeah, needed a lot of grooming. That's why the missus wants a cockapoo because they don't shred hair. We got the bernese from a rescue. Shed been abandoned in Delamere forest with her sister. f**k**g the matter with people. Think dogs take after their owners, though. She was so laid back.
