Roxy is Pet of the Day

Roxy is Pet of the Day

First published in News

Here is Roxy, the Staffordshire bull terrier who turns the stereotype of her breed on its head.

Roxy is just four months old but is already proving a hit in her local area.

She was nominated for Pet of the Day by Verity Smallridge from Gravesend.

Roxy likes “licking daddy's face and cuddling mummy.”

She dislikes the vacuum and the rain.

Does your pet have a talent? Roxy can balance on her two back legs for any treat.

What makes your pet so special? Staffordshire bull terriers have a terrible reputation. Roxy is the complete opposite. She is loving and loyal and will smother anyone with licks and cuddles. She is very loved in the neighbourhood by adults, children and other dogs too. She has made mummy very happy.

Sorry NS but what is the breed stereo type? If you did just a little bit of research you would find that Staffies are known to be excellent family dogs in fact one of the safest breeds to have around children and people generally. To push the point further any 'bad dog' is much more likely to be the product of an ignorant owner.
