    Hi Geoff,
    I have 2 Staffies and the bitch was a rescue dog. Her owner was an apparent drug taker/dealer and he would have her on the lead and constantly kick her repeatedly. She was around 14-15 months when we got her. It took 6 months for her to stop wetting herself when you raised your voice. However she is now 11 years old and loved to bits. The dog is now 15 years old and he is still running around like a pup.
    He caught her on her first heat, it was literally 10 seconds of turning our backs on them and they were tied. She had 11 healthy pups that were all house trained by the time they were 6-7 weeks old. My missus cried for every one of them as they went to new homes.
    She is ginger and white and he is black, every pup was jet black, not one ginger one.
    We had her spayed after the pups went as she was like a skeleton after bringing up 11 pups and I think it would have killed her if he caught her again.
    They are the light in our lives, funny, protective and 110% unconditional love from them.
    People who mistreat them should be whipped and I mean whipped properly.
    Hope she gives you years of love and companionship.
    What is a square head and why should you watch out for her.
    Well done Geoff

    Our Border Terrier, Florence, had 6 puppies 18 mths ago (planned) and we weren't exactly crying for the four that went to new homes after 8 weeks! Not that we didn't love them, but boy are they a lot of work, and at that age you need to spend more one-on-one time with them than you have. One new owner hasn't chosen to keep in touch but we have seen the other three since (we had a BBQ with 7 related Border Terriers earlier in the summer) and they have all grown into lovely dogs with great homes. We ended up keeping two puppies because we wanted another bitch (and there was only one) and one of the dogs had a malformed eye so we kept him too. BTW, don't ever have two from the same litter - our two are a right handful together.

    Florence went incredibly skinny after her puppies and we kept her away once they were on hard food. But I think one litter is enough so she's now spayed too.

    Love borders. Sons one is near end of her life alas at nearly 12 and has breast cancer.

    I had a boy and a great companion he was.
    Best dogs around imo.
