Fleabag Friday | Ian

Staffys have a bad rep at the moment. It's bad owners that make bad dogs. I have very happy memories of playing with a neighbours Staffordshire bull terrier when I was a toddler. That dog started my obsession with canines. Katrina from Chatter Fox is here to prove to you that Staffys are one of the most loving breeds out there.

This is Ian- named after Ian Curtis from Joy Division. That seemed like a funny thing to do at the time.Ian, dog, staffordshire bull terrior

Ian is three years old but on occasions still believes himself to be a puppy. He likes sunbathing and relaxing in his bed. He enjoys playing fetch and is very good at catching the ball...sometimes.

He is a kind fella with a heart full of love. He's not the monster the media portray him to be. He likes to give kisses to everyone, especially my three year old niece.

He is a handsome chap and started his modelling career as a youngster.

I didn't want a dog at the beginning, I was bullied into it by my ex-partner but he's now long gone and my lovely little bundle of fur remains by my side. He's pulled me up when I was down, he's made me smile when all I can do is cry and he makes every day that little bit more fun. My life wouldn't be the same without Ian.

  1. Staffies are such such beautiful dogs it's just a handful of crappy owners who gave them the bad reputation. Ian is a handsome devil, I can't even look at the picture of him as a pup again, I might openly weep in the office.

  2. Staffies are the most popular dogs in Australia. I hate when the media target a breed- I'm guessing some kid was attacked or similar?
