My bouncy little American Pit Bull Terrier X Staffordshire bull terrier

Owning a dog has always been something that has been on my mind for a while now. After completing my studies, I subconsciously started browsing through puppy advertisements on Gumtree and before I knew it I was dragging N with me to go look at puppies. I'll never forget how this one puppy came running up to the edge of the pen. It was at that every instance that I knew that he was the dog for me. The added bonus was that N liked him too.Thus began my journey with my little puppy,  Nikodemus. It has been full of challenges for the both of us and I know for sure that I would not change it for the world. He has been the best dog and I would definitely recommend this breed to anyone else looking for a furkid.The main reason I wanted to write this entry was in an attempt to neutralize the negative image the American Staffordshire Terrier or the Amstaff  have gained over the years.It is indeed the case of nurture over nature plus training and socialisation. In my opinion this breed has a bad reputation for aggression because of its dog fighting history but let me assure you that they are no different to any other dog breed.If your willing to give them a chance and put in the effort with their training I assure you they might surprise you !

Till next time :)
Keep your  head up. Keep your faith.
