Hello - 1st time Staffy parent

Post by Mija's Mam on Tue Jan 26 2016, 12:35

Hi all
very impressed with forum - valuable advice re the world of adorable staffies.
I'm a relatively experienced dog owner (collie cross, westie, lab, rottie, lahsas) but Mija (meeya) is our first Staffie & we really want to do our best by her.
She's a little honey pie.......our 2 Lahsa Ahpso's may not agree yet......but we know it takes time Smile
Already super impressed by the forum...."go crazy - Staffy Zoomies"......little over 9 weeks old and yep! Least I know its nothing we're doing wrong, phew.
We've had our little darling a little over 2 weeks now, bit of a shaky start being young and terribly upset to be away from mum/litter mates but she's settled and already we can see progress is being made. She's a clever wee girl, maybe too clever.... its obv we've lots to learn but i'm feeling confident we'll get appropriate reassurance & any help we require through this forum. Look forward also to general chit chat with fellow Staffy parents.

kind regards
Mija's Mam

Hello all, thank you for your lovely welcome messages. Some more piccies of Mija "the minx" to follow....don't be fooled by the cute sleeping puppy. Our breeder's parting words were "your going to have fun with her!"....she wasn't wrong. Definitely a top dog, needing a firmer hand than i've needed before...I thought my Rottie was a handful hehe Surprised ..Love her though so much already Love Struck
