Yes I think tale docking is cruel. When we bought Tara it was still legal and everyone was doing it. We couldn’t find a breeder who didn’t do it. Tara turns 9 this year.
My other baby is Zoe. She’s an American Staffy. I cant find any good pics of her though.
Up the Front is Zara. She passed away in 2006. Tara is up the back and Zoe in the middle. They look a but funny in this pic. Taken at an odd moment my mum was holding some food for them.
And the three of them sleeping. Zara is the one up the back.
They're all big cuddly dogs and are great pets!
People in the past have given these breeds a bad name. With the right owners they made great family pets and are great with young kids too. I remember when i sister was a toddler she would play outside with Zara. Zara would let my sister do anything to her. She would never snap or get angry.
