Hi All
50 year old Male from North Manchester

Might seem a little strange joining this group as i don't currently have any pets.

I did have the pleasure of owning 2 Staffies who i miss very much, they gave me so much pleasure for 17 years.
the loss i felt when they was gone put me off owning another as i get too attached.

Its been 4 years without my dogs now, and i keep getting the temptation to get another.
it seems everywhere i go i see Staffies, other dogs don't seem to do it for me, it has to be a staffy Smile
They have a personality all of there own.

This week a friend gave me the address of a guy who's dog had just had pups, they are Blue Staffs.
i plucked up the courage and went and enquired, he wanted £1200 each for them!
Admittedly its been a long time since i bought my last 2 but i just cant afford that... deffo not 2 again either.

So for now, i thought i would join this group and read about yours Smile

Hi & welcome to the forum!

I'm so sorry about the loss of your two fur friends, they leave such a huge gap, don't they?

I'm not surprised about the £1200. People still seem to think that blue us a rare colour, which of course it isn't. Over half of all Stafford pups registered with the Kennel Club last year were blue - hardly rare.

I bet those pups' parents hadn't been tested for the various inherited problems in the breed today, either. It's the old £ sign - breed blue to blue so you can guarantee blue pups & then charge twice the going rate of well bred pups!

In my opinion you did right not to pay it!

Hi ya, welcome to the forum from Flo and me Big Grin

You don’t have to own a Staffy to join in here so you are most welcome. I think all dogs leave a huge hole in your life when they pass on but none more than Staffies, they really do have a particular character.

£1200 is way too much to pay, especially if they weren’t KC registered from a showing line. You did the right thing to walk away but you must have been sorely tempted.

Just a thought 5hough, have you considered a rescue ? We did and haven’t looked back.

I have been looking at rescue and buying pups.
i think ill have to do some saving for the latter, i started out thinking i would get a pup for about £200, i now realised that's very unlikely.
Rescue might be a better option.

I think pups sell, on average, for about £500/750.

Hello and welcome from Misty and I, you are very welcome here without a dog.

So sorry to hear of your loss.

I completely agree that's an insane amount of money for a pup. Rescue dogs are so much cheaper and you sound like the owner a rescue would love to have with your experience. Hope you find a new best friend soon x

Hello and welcome.

Definitely consider a rescue. As you have (been) owned (by) Staffies before you know what they are like.

My girl is a rescue and she's best wee dog I've ever had Big Grin

Oh that is good news! I can't wait to see pics.

I like Luther best of those three, it's a bit more unusual.
