An enquiry is underway with the Food and Rural Affairs Committee in regards to breed specific legislation that could add the Staffie to the banned list.

Staffordshire bull terriers are well known in the UK with lots of households keeping them as pets.

Should the law be changed you would have to say goodbye to your pet otherwise risk breaking the law.This would be terribly distressing not to mention the destruction of thousands of pets in the UK.

All owners of the pets think this is ridiculous and completely disagree with the investigation.

  1. You absolute bunch of ignorant tossers! Deed NOT Breed ! Thank you to the ” media hatred ” for this bollocks.. They cause this shit and yet let paedo gangs go unreported or fkn lie with FAKE news!

  2. How many times does this have to be stated that 99.9% of the time it’s the barbaric B&$¥***s that bring these beautiful animals up to be the “roofless beasts” their proclaimed to be!!

    I sincerely hope this is a hoax and fake news because the law wants to really look into the owners/potential owners records before allowing them pets! ANY dog can be “viscous” or “safe” infact I’ve come across more nasty Pomeranians and chihuahuas then I have likes of Staffordshire bull terriers, Dobermans and German shepherds!

    Take your heads out your arses and think before you print!

  3. They are not dangerous dogs its the owners who bring them up thats the bloody trouble this is what wrong with world a dog bites someone they get put down yet if someone got murdered or raped or a pedo they get a slap on the wrist or a few years in prison i really do hate people who banish these dogs and think they are dangerous

  4. the Government said that they won’t be doing this already…

    Government responded
    This response was given on 5 July 2018

    The Government has no intention of prohibiting the keeping of Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

    Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 prohibits the keeping of certain types of dog identified as either bred for fighting or that share the characteristics of dogs bred for fighting. There are four types of dog to which the prohibition applies: (i) pitbull terrier; (ii) Japanese tosa; (iii) dogo Argentino; and (iv) fila Braziliero. However, although it is an offence to keep one of these types of dog there are exemptions for individual dogs where it has been shown to a court that they do not pose a safety risk to others. The exemptions are subject to conditions (i.e. neutered, insured against injuring third parties, muzzled and on a lead when in public).

    The Government considers that the prohibition on certain types of dogs forms an important part of the measures needed to tackle irresponsible ownership of dogs. Other important measures already in place include: an offence to allow a dog, of any type or breed, to be dangerously out of control; allowing police and local authorities to issue community protection notices to irresponsible owners whose dogs are causing low level problems; and civil law allowing courts to impose restrictions on individual dogs that are found to be dangerous.

    The Parliamentary Select Committee on Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA) (not Government) are currently reviewing the law on the prohibition on certain types of dogs. EFRA invited any written evidence to be submitted to them by 6 June 2018. Once EFRA’s review is complete they will then publish a report with recommendations and submit it to the Government.

  5. Absolutely ridiculous! Ban the idiots that own them, send then for PROPER training! Never have I met a viscous Staff! The “Nanny” dog, protective and loveable breed.. Nan the idiots and euthanize the ones who use them for fighting, then the UK WILL BE FREE OF PARASITIC DOLE QUEING DOSSERS!!!

  6. Is this a joke staffie ate called granny dogs because of there natural calm and loving nature believe me my staffie going no where she is one of the most caring and loving dogs I have ever owned there is no such thing as a bad dog it’s the owner I agree staffie should be taken from them as there intent is not to have a loving pet they are used for intimidating and are there for treat them badly

  7. How do we fight this? There is no such thing as a bad dog. Only poor owners who have no idea how to train their pets or have no inclination as to do so. Bring back the dog licence. And ban bad owners not dogs who just happen be to born certain breeds. Basically this horrendous act is simply Canine racism.

  8. I believe only certain ppl should be allow the breed as atm all the ppl that have them are ppl to train them to hurt ppl like druggys ect

  9. Back in the 80s the Rottweiler and Doberman pincher were thought to be dangerous dogs and nothing was ever.done
    More people get bitten by small breed dogs like the jack russle terrier which have teeth like needles and can in fact leave a bite far worse than even a german shappard would leave.
    The moment this law is passed this will end the possibility of keeping dogs in general as pets because once there is no longer a Staffordshire bull terrier which breed would be next???? PETA and the Food and Rural Affairs Committee must all own cats or hamsters of which both of these can give a nasty bite too

  10. This is ridiculous when will you people realise it has nothing to do with the breed of a dog it’s down to how the dog is brought up stop blaming an animal that only knows what it is taught to do idiots

  11. disgusting loads of little dogs that savage never make the news theses are not a pitbull thats are not a breed but theses are kc pets so killing those for no reason is murder

  12. why dont you stop blamming the dogs and blame the flipping owners.. its the owners what make them what they want them to be. its the small dogs what are worst out of any dog.

  13. This country is a fucking joke
    pedos and rapist and murderers get to live but poor innocent dogs get destroyed where’s the logic in that
    But then I’m not surprised as most of the government are pedofiles anyway so the will protect them

  14. I’m against the banning of the strafforshire terriers! These dogs are like no other. Before people started shaming these breeds because they ‘look’ dangerrous, they were known as the ‘nanny breeed’ for being so gental and calm towards children. Staffies and pit bulls are only trained for the way they are even vicious in a way. The ownership and lack of leadership towards these dogs are making them this way! Only because they have a strong muscular build does not mean to say a Yorkshire terrier could not do the exact same damage. These poor dogs are getting put to sleep or as some would say murdered just as a 5 month old puppy doing no harm. The owners are 100% responsible for how they treat any dog; weather that’s a pit bull, staffy, grey hound,husky or any breed should be treated to their own abilities. I’m only 15 and I have a strong opinion on these poor breeds getting singled out. 31 people have been killed in dog related insidents, but only 21 of those were not included breeds prohibited by the law or a staffy. I think to have ownership of these breeds you should have a license to show you will not mistreat or misguide these dogs from any other. I know for a fact people won’t listen to my opinion because I’m so young but this is worth the read.

  15. Just sick as these dogs are part of our family so why would they be destroyed after all all dogs can be dangerous not just these from a jackrussel to any other breed so should these dogs not be destroyed as well then at end of the day it the owner not the dog so destroy the owner

  16. This is sheer stupidity, the shaffie is a really loyal and loving dog. It’s not the dogs that need banning it’s the vile humans that breed badly. The UK is becoming a nanny state and an embarrassment to be British. Bet a non dog person is behind this idiotic idea. Please rethink

  17. Thats rediculous, there are so many staffies around in the uk, in fact more in animal shelters and rescues than any other dog breed, it’s how they are raised not the breed

  18. I dissagee because not all are dangerous and its how you bring your dog up and how you learn them right from.

    • Well said , a dog is not born dangerous. That is like saying my child is dangerous.No , when that newborn enters the world it is complete oblivious to all kinds of things. The way we bring up our children and pets is the way they know through wrong and right. It is not okay to ban Staffies, they are dogs and pets at the end of the day. Clearly the problem is not the dogs , it is the owners.

  19. The Government has no intention of prohibiting the keeping of Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

    Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 prohibits the keeping of certain types of dog identified as either bred for fighting or that share the characteristics of dogs bred for fighting.

    • Then how come some dogs which are not any of these breeds and have never harmed anyone are being destroyed under this legislation?

    • they are looking at including Staffordshire bull terriers as a pitbull breed on the recommendation of PETA, they want them to be included as dangerous dogs. the petition is still open so its worth signing.

  20. What a country we live in, we let scumbags beat old ladies & men up and give Community service. We have people doing online fraud and stealing people’s hard earned money,murders and a dog that is such a lovely breed if bought up the right way and this is what you intend to do to them!

  21. My old staffie was a beautiful loving dog who saved my x partner suffers with epilepsy and my staff dog use to Lickey him till he came out of his fits so not all staffs r dangerous

  22. meet the dogs before you bastards keep giving dogs bad names ive got a staffy and she the most loving dog ever so you try put dogs down an give them a bad namea yet yuo will allow smack heads to have dogs who use them for fighting dogs and breeding shut ya mouth meet the dogs before you try giving them bad names

  23. Can you stop posting fake news and scare mongering people with yoyr false information. Its fake and absolutely disgusting.

  24. yep totaly agree get a;; pedos n staffys in a room let the staffys maul them hahaha jokes its afuking joke

  25. This is bullshit any dog given a bad upbringing has the potential to be dangerous in the wrong hands, just like a genetic fuck up going into a shop buying a knife and stabbing someone , do we stop selling knives?
    If you go back into your history the Staffordshire breed was classed as a nanny dog because of its love of children. And few years back they picked on the rottweiler saying this was a dangerous breed , this dog was bred to hurde cattle . It’s the owners should be looked at !!!! Not the poor animal unlucky enough to be selected by a dickhead owners should be vetted not this breed I’ve know a few dogs of this breed and never have I found one to be nasty !!!

  26. I have 2 staff crossbreeds, and they are , loving. Police dogs are trained to attack, so where do they ,otand in all this? It’s the way they are trained and brought up, any animal in the wrong hands is dangerous.

  27. I used to be scared of staffs..but after doing community caring and the amount of old people that had them I went and got one..he is my world I suffer from depression and he keeps me going he gives me so much love …my Yorkshire terrier should be on the most dangerous list your more likely to get attacked from her…

  28. Not all staffies are like this i grow up around them and have one now hes the most soft dog i know and i would rather break the law and let anyone put my dog down ( my baby ) who does these ppl think there are ANY DOG CAN BITE its the ppl that own them and bring them up wrong that needs putting down its like saying lets putting all the humans that fight to sleep what is this word cuming to

  29. dont blame how dogs act if they are treated badly my staffy is 10 shes never hurt a fly and shes very close to my children destroy the people who make dogs dangerous by abusing them no breed is nasty if there treated correctly and loved leave staffs alone there beautiful and loving when they are given the love theh should have

  30. Well, when I tought that the Portuguese government was formed by stupid People, I’ve found out that British one is away worst.
    Destroying this beautifull breed, why? It’s no a dangerous breed, they are kind dogs. I”ve a pit Bull and I dont understand where the hell my dog is dangerous, yes its True he can kill me, with lots of licking… They are kissers

  31. It’s not the breed that dangerous rot the owners that make them dangerous i have a Staffie and she was a rescue puppy she is the lovelyest dog you will ever meet I wouldent want to change her for the world I’m not getting rid of her they would have to go through me first

  32. What a load of bullshit! PETA wanted them banned but it’s not and won’t happen. Get upto date instead of spreading shit.

  33. Absolutely disgusting sick and in humane to destroy them when it’s the sick people shitty owners that are making this happen when the ones who bring up their staffies correctly are going to suffer 14 years of love and loyalty I had from my dog not a bad thing about him… You government got your shit all wrong you need to destroy the people who imprint the aggressive behaviour in to them …all dogs can’t be trained and deserve a chance in life

  34. only a majority of dogs are a danger because of the way they are brought up.. any dog can turn and any dog can do damage not just staffies…they are so docile when brought up right just like any other dog .if that was the case all dogs should be muzzled including chiauhas (if thats how you spell it ) cos they can bite as well

  35. Is there a petition we could sign to stop this unfair law? It should be the irresponsible owners that should be punished, not the dogs.

  36. NOT TRUE!! STOP THIS.

    PETA tried to get staffies added to the list of banned breeds but the government is doing something right for once and rejected this.

    Delete this misleading article.

  37. Surely more time stoping the people that use the dogs for fighting or attack dogs or things of that nature is better because a dog is not born aggressive or wanting to attack it’s the owner that is teaching them

  38. I have a staffie, he’s the most loving dog I’ve ever had the pleasure to have as part of our family, he constantly gets attacked on the park and all he does is lie on his back in submission, all our dog wants to do Is sit on your knee and lick you to death.

    Any dog is capable of biting anyone it’s how you bring the dog up that really matters.

  39. There is no such thing as a bad dog/breed , only bad owners. This Country is literally backwards instead of making people responsible for their actions when keeping an animal they decide it’s the actual breed that needs to go! How ridiculous does that sound!

  40. Can I just say, many dog breeds can be vicious.. this is not due to the breeds it’s due to how the animal is brought up. You don’t see chihuahuas being added to the dangerous dog list due to how snotty they can be, you don’t see it happening with cats when they get vicious. It’s all down to the way this animal has been brought up just like human.. they get treated poorly so YES they will act out when tgey are offended or scared. I think for this breed to be banned from the UK or anywhere would be a dumb idea. Along with any breed.

  41. this headline is intentionally misleading to as clickbait – the idea has been passed to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA) Select Committee by PETA as a consideration and is being fought against from a million angles!

    They tried this in 2016 and didn’t succeed, i don’t expect them to this time either!

  42. The comments above ar e right what is happening in this country we let murderers rapists paedophiles in to the country let people get mugged and beaten in broad daylight and some prat decides to pick on staffies.whats going on

  43. we have our second staff , hes just as loving as his sister was , no such thing as a dangerous dog just the bloody owners !!

  44. The RSPCA have been calling for EFRA to review breed-specific legislation as they believe it is ineffective (i.e. they want the 4 currently-banned breeds to be “unbanned”) and EFRA have launched an inquiry. Only an utter, utter moron could possibly conclude that this means that Staffies could be added to the banned list.

  45. Omg This is disgusting. As the owner of two staffies they are the most loveable dogs I have ever had. Any dog can be dangerous if treated badly enough and trained to fight.

  46. No one coming anywhere near my dog there are so lovely and friendly this is stupid if there do this and have a lot off angry people

  47. What next this country is taking everybodies choices in life away, as for dog breeds their is nothing wrong with staffies or any suspected dangerous breed its the owners, what about dangerous people living in this world, innocent lives of kids, poverty etc ! Their be uproar & alot of upset at people losing their pets cause of these endless pathetic petitions & laws !!!

  48. You can have the most vicious breed of dog,but that does not mean that it will be vicious. It’s all to do with the way you raise and bring your dog up. It’s like having violent parents,beating people up all the time. That doesn’t make or mean you as a child will grow up to be the same. Mick Gillin

  49. I really hope this wont happen and UK stays a staffie loving country. PETA are a bunch of idiots and they have no evidence that shows a staffy bite being more dangerous that a lab bite. I mean come on, labs are known to be temperamental around children but everyone loves them and they should. I agree with a comment above about exterminating pedophiles and rapists also.
    Please PETA go back to chasing models wearing racoon fur.

  50. I know it’s awful all peaophiles need to be branded on the forehead and keep tattooing them if they do it again and maybe some of them can get put to sleep if they are saying the poor dogs are dangerous what about humans ?

  51. Wtf! Every staffs iv met has been soft as hell and brilliant with children if this is the case then why u letting all the dangerous people live??

    Not all animals are the same it all to do with how the owner bring there pets up! Any dog can be dangerous if not bought up correctly no matter the size or build!

    I think and so will many if u want to bring in this stupid law then bring back the law for execution for people that purposely murder someone or ruined a child’s life!

    Your law is getting more stupid each year! Sort yourselfs out! Stop picking on the things we love!

  52. I believe that owners need to be responsible for their dogs and held accountable. When my daughter was two and a half years old she was bitten in the face by Staffordshire bull terrier, I was standing next to her at the time, it all happened very fast and there was nothing I could have done, her face had to be stitched, she still bears those scars.
    It was on private property and the owner was not there at the time, she said it was not her problem and did not care, someone else must have let the dog out…
    Had it not been on private property the police could have acted, but being on private property there was nothing they could do.
    I believe that owners should be held responsible for their animals.
    Lesley Spurrier

  53. What a load of shit! It’s how they are raised from the off! Need to concentrate on some of the humans on this earth that act more animal than animals themselves – makes me so bloody angry reading these stupid statements ?

  54. Breeds shouldn’t be banned cause they were grown wrong, that’s as dumb as the dog tests in Germany, no dog is born as a beast, they should test the owners and ban there the real beasts.

  55. DISAGREE 100%!!!
    Why should this whole breed suffer because some owners cant bring their dog up correctly!!
    Its an owners responsibility to teach and train their dog right from wrong!! I know plenty of staffies and staffie cross that wouldnt hurt a fly and are the most loyal and loving animals you could ask for!
    They arnt an aggressive animal if brought up properly!

  56. You can fuck right off mine is like a baby you try touch mine there be fucking trouble she even cwtches like a baby see like you to death soon you come through the gate that’s how friendly as is

  57. I really cant believe what I have just read. So if this law passes then our beloved dogs are going to be taken and put to sleep!! Over my dead body will my dog be taken away from his loving home. Why doesn’t the goverment do something real good and have a look at removing the scum of the earth that abuse and harm children…

  58. I totally disagree every one l have had has been so gentle … Staffies are as bad as the owner makes them .. since Pit Bulls were banned some idiots decided to use these poor Staffordshire Bulls in their place
    You may as well say ban all dogs because the way they are being interbred at the moment to make designer dogs is just asking for trouble mentally and physically
    It’s only my opinion so no slating me please

  59. Why kill a dog why not sort there owner out thats the problem i had 4 staffs to which 2 are in my garden as we loss them i now have the daughter and grandson to which are my babies and they never once hurt or harmed anyone and they are 10 and 7 so if u want my dogs you have to get pass me first end off

  60. i had a staff he was so lovely there is nothing wonge with them how about the banning the kids from having them you go ask people had or one leave them dogs they good its the kids

  61. This is bullshit. They aren’t going to add staffies to the list. Why don’t you actually fact find before publishing lies

  62. Its how u bring them up and treat them like a child as my family members have a staff and hes so soft and lovely to my boy and everyone who sees him its residuals of them saying to out them on the band list

  63. This is just total made up fake news with nothing to back it up what so ever! If Staffies are banned I’ll donante my kidney to someone. Can’t see why anyone would waste the time writing this crap. Get a life!

  64. Every hater is welcome spend a day with my staffies male female kids babys all will get loved to death off them , kisses are free hugs are definite. Really boils my blood crap like this . Uneducated idiots think they know whats best when in reality they have an axe to grind to make a name for themselfs

  65. You cannot blame all dogs you have to blame the people who have the dogs blame them I have two shaffies and they are very friendly and lovely dogs. And they love children and they are very happy dogs. Do not blame the dogs is the way they are being treated blame the owner.

  66. Hummm I noticed it says at the bottom if you wanna look farther into this go to ASPCA….of course there behind this the ASPCA is no good there the reader we have breed restrictions in the first place this is ALL! ASPCA’s fault. I say start by taking them down then we will truly get somewhere because we can legalize and legalize all we want but as long as they are still around our work will truly mean nothing. People need to open their eyes ASPCA are killers and only care for certain animals not all animals not true animal lovers.

  67. There is no way I would give my dog up for no one my staffy would lick you to death before she would harm anyone.the little fluffy dogs would bite you before Staffordshire bull terriers would is the government banning them too

  68. It’s not the staffies you need to put on dangerous list it’s the owners for god sake wake up you bellends I’m annoyed that I even had to write this comment ?

  69. Personally I think humans that need to be added to the top of the dangerous animals list. Staffies aren’t born dangerous they’re trained to be dangerous by degenerate thugs who have no place owning an animal of any kind!!

  70. This is ridiculous…..it’s the way they are brought up….it goes for all breeds of dogs! Whats the saying…. Dogs are a man’s best friend. They should punish rapists, pedos, etc and not the dogs!!!

  71. I’m sat in bed with my Staffordshire next to me snoring away. He is a great part of the family giving us loads of fun and love and missed when I’m not with my Kush dog

  72. This country is so fucked up,if they are going to stop genuine people from owning staffies,then i think that they should get rid of all the foreiners out of this country and make just for white people like it should be because it’s your drug dealing imigrants that use staffies for the wrong reason
    And if they are going to do it to staffies i think the same should apply for english bull terriers.

  73. Staffies if brought up correctly r great big sloppy dogs who love to cuddle and lick you. They r great with children as they were originally bred to b nanny dogs. Bad staffie equals bad thug owner.

  74.

  75. Utter garbage. This has been responded to by Parliament and stated this is not being considered, let alone happening, on 6th July. The most basic fact checking would have picked this up. This is a totally misleading headline. Such pathetic standards of ‘journslism’

  76. I have had my staffie since pup bought through a breeder and got kennel club registration number.He is now 11years old and what a lovely breed to have as a pet so loving.Any dog can attack its how the owner teaches there dog .

  77. Suzanne Newman…… how right you are .. I have a blue staffy bull from 9 weeks old . A lovely fellow and with children aswell …. it’s very true what you say … what a country we live in … it’s full of easy targets yet like you say in society we put up.with all this filth scum murders theft drugs and all our government is INTERESTED in is the easy targets …. this is utter nonsense and there are bigger issues that need the firm hand of law and order rather than buttering all.dogs with the same knife as others that are dangerous to society .

  78. I was attacked by my neighbours two staffs on 5th June this year in my own private garden which they scaled a 4ft fence to get in, Two years previous when they purchased the dogs, they gave the same excuse other staffy dog owners use. Its not the breed its how they are brought up. The staffy attacks continue across the globe by these so called fantastic irresponsible dog owners. If they dont think its the dogs fault, then a compulsory 10 yr prison sentence should be made law to ALL owners, since its their fault and not the so called dogs as they say, when an attack occurs.

  79. My dog was attacked by two Jack Russell Terriers when she was younger. I tried picking her up to get her away from them and they just held on to her. IMHO they can be much more aggressive than Staffies. My neighbour has one and she is wonderful with young children and even tiny kittens. Also, I hate the fact that Pit Bulls are on the dangerous dog register. My friend in the US runs a Pit Bull rescue and her dogs are as soft as anything. It’s the owners who train these breeds to be vicious that should be on a register. not the innocent animals.

  80. Any dog is dangerous if TRAINED to be that way. Staffies are only seen as dangerous because of all those idiots out there who TRAIN them to be that way. Dogs are easily manipulated, so you can also TRAIN them to be good. It’s all about your energy too! The two staffies I live with are completely calm around me, like to play around my stepdad, softies around my mum and get mildly excited when around my younger siblings, neither of them show aggression. They flop over onto their backs wanting a belly rub, how is that deemed as dangerous? Or, at least, instead of banning, just make them a breed that needs a permit to own one…

  81. Dogs bred by idiots, sold to mates then bred again with parents or siblings. Doesn’t do a lot to any breed of dog.
