Obviously illness, but I chose theft because Bull Terriers are a prime target in this area. They're used as bait dogs or as breeders to be crossed with staffords/pit bulls.

all of the above but stolen i reckon just because of her colour i thin a lot of staffs here and all breeding together its a joke and some people are just in it for the money which is a joke fetching up to 5 hundred pound the other day i seen in the paper did not even look like a pure staff they said they were blue but to be honest they were black i think they must be colour blind .

My biggest fear is waking up in the morning to find pebbles has passed away in her sleep. This happened with our cat and the thought it could happen again really scares me.

I'm terrified of him getting into a fight and doing some serious damage to another dog he's twice as tall as a staff and he weighs more than one at a year old, im scared he's going to get taken away from me for his aggression, my family call me cruel because i keep him on a lead but if i dont have confidence in a dog they don't come off the lead unless in a secure area like my allotments. I do feel sorry for him though because i know its my fault for his behaviour because i didn't train him and keep at it while busy with other things.

Your doing the right thing by keeping him on a lead absolutley! For his own sake and everyone elses. He's never to old to take him back to basics though if u can and reintroduce him to dogs the right way etc.....

That's one of my worries too Sad I cry my eyes out reading about other people's pets dying so I don't know how I'm going to live when Prince, or my two cats and two rabbits die Crying or Very sad One of my cats is missing at the moment, so I'm worried he's dead Crying or Very sad I think Prince may be missing him too.

All of above, BUT
I have a phobia of toads and I get a bit over protected of Saffy & Pingu...
One time Saffy ran to far in the backyard at night, I didn't go after her because I was terrified and I panicked and called her back, she came to me with a frothy mouth..... this was about 8 weeks old... Sad
Ever since then I try to cover every toad hole, search the yard for toads, and I now have a 3m x 3m pen for Saffy & Pingu to pee in which is 1m high and no toad can squeeze into. I also carry them into it, luckily Saffy is a small staffy weighing 14kg(30lbs) at 11months and probably fully grown(hopefully).
I know I'm a little bit overprotective about toads, but since I'm the care taker and they are my responsibility.... plus I have had nightmares of toads since I was little.... it makes life a little more easier if I know my pups are safe. Smile

two things really...one is that he'll be stolen and the other is that he'll get out when I'm not home. He's a typical Staffy...thinks every human is his friend and wants to play but is not fond of anything else with 4 legs. He's micro-chipped and would have his collar with his rego on but it's the trouble he could get into that frightens me.

I thought about it and I chose theft because if Saxon was stolen it would probably be for fighting and I know he would be terrible at it because he loves everything with a beating heart and that means he would end up being used as bait/training. I don't even want to think about my sweet little love in that position!!

Hard one to decide on really when I am away from Molly I am often worried that something could go wrong: Illness or theft, then when I am with her and she is playing injury. More so when playing near water or where there are quite big drops.

I would hate any of the above but I voted theft. To have your precious fur baby stolen.. and not know where he was, would be my worst nightmare. I would rather find Jethro ( or Winston ) lying dead on the road .. at least you know what has happened to them. ( But I hope I never ever do find them like that !! ) Just thinking about any of it, makes me feel ill......

That is exactly my fear when it comes to Bundy and theft. Bundy thinks every human is a potential playmate and to think of him being used as fodder in some training ring, makes me feel sick with fear. I would like to use those humans (and I use the term loosely!) as training fodder for man-eating lions!!

I struggled between illness & theft (especially as I have already had dogs stolen and believe me that is not easy to get your head around). angry broken heart
In the end I chose illness, because it's hard enough when they lose their sight and hearing and maybe even a little of their memory, but if Kita has to go through a terrible illness as well, I really don't think I'll be able to cope.
If Izzy became unwell at this point in time with Kita aging like she is, then neither of us will cope or will Kita as she suffers separation anxiety badly enough when Izzy goes for a long walk. We could never replace Izzy, but we know Kita won't cope on her own, yet we can't even think about adding another dog to the dimensions anymore as Kita is just too old.
I pray that my old darling girl slips quietly away to sleep with me by her side, then it's only me having to deal with separation anxiety broken heart

Lozza yes I agree entirely. I have always said to Tony I would rather see my 2 dead on the side of the road ( for example, and I hope and pray that would NEVER happen! ) because you know where they are and what happened. To have your pet stolen...and never know where they are , or what is happening to them would just be horrific..you could never get closure and would always be wondering..and my heart goes out to people who have suffered this.

Theft, because I KNOW he'd be used in a fighting ring.
My little man doesn't deserve that.

Same here vanessa.

I know a woman who had rescued a bull terrier from a bad life. It was a lovely dog. The woman is in the army but whilst she was back home she took the dog fo a walk. Unfortunately he jumped into the river and was swept away. They looked for him for days orgnaising huge search parties when one person said they had seen the dog donw the river. They found the dog. It was dead but they were relived to have found it instead of not knowing what was happening to it. So terrible Crying or Very sad

yeah i chose theft because A) shes a staffy and we get the less then savory characters round her who use them as status dogs and worse, and B) shes quite nice looking and v friendly, anyone could walk of with her and she would only be too happy to go with them!!

All of the above really. But mostly, it would be Monty running on the main road and getting hit by a car. I live on the main road, a busy one. Although he is never off the lead when leaving the house (or anywhere really, I'm not brave enough yet), I remember when my staffy, Ben, years ago, I had him off a lead, but he was very good at recall (thinking back, my Ben was such a clever, smart and intelligent dog Sad ), he was running down a hill which was on our way home, that then came onto the main road .. the hill was so steep, he didn't have enough grip to stop, so he went straight out on the road and under a car. I think I must have been about 12. I screamed to the high heavans, swore at my neighbor when she asked was he ok, and couldn't forgive myself .. I still remember the noise when he went under the car :'(

He was ok though : ) He survived. No broken bones, just a few scratches.

I miss my staffy Ben, he was amazing. Stipid bloody slug pellets in the garden finished off what was a perfectly healthy, fit looking dog Sad

Love and miss you Ben xxxxx

Wow I can't believe my eyes have filled up with tears Smile

R.I.P Ben! My Grandma's collie went in nearly the same fashion. Sam was having a lovely walk and the council had put down some sort of poisonous chemical without warning anyone and it killed Sam! :'( You're nt alone there Maria. I bet he was a gorgeous dog!

Hey Jo, we always say that if there was a burgular (Casey sleeps downstairs doesnt like sleeping upstairs) she would point them to where the money was and watch them take it and close the door behind them! Wink big soft lump!

ME TOO DOGALOGS, THAT BRINGS A TEAR TO MY EYE! MORE HUGS! >Big Grin< >Big Grin< >Big Grin<

The weirdest thing was this :

Ben had a lovely kennel out the garden that my grandad built from his carpentry skills. It was amazing. The night before, I drew a picture of bens kennel with me and him in the picture, and I pinned it up inside the wall of the kennel Sad I remember the following day, I was kept in my room, not allowed to come out ... I knew something was up with the dog. When he was removed from the kennel, out of the house, my dad later on told me the sad news, but he sat me down, with a pen and paper ... Wrote down the following word .. DOG .. And told me 'say it backwards, and that's who Ben is with now'. :,(
