I am so glad that they have at least had a stay of execution for the moment.

Good luck with them - I dont think it is worth me offering because they are totally at the wrong end of the country

 :thanks: for the update and I hope that homes can be found for these two soon.

Just found this update:

"The two Staffies are in temporary boarding but still in need of urgent rescue placements." So still looking if anyone can think of anything.

I'll email Niall and ask but today was the day they'd scheduled letting the male go definitely.

Have you tried BABWORTH RESCUE at babworth near retford, i know its a long way out but they may just be able to help, Also Kirkby dog rescue, they have a network of foster homes for placements like this

Kent (close to SE London). Sadly, I think Niall's the last chance saloon. He says if ANYONE can help he's prepared to so some driving.

Indeed. It must be soul destroying for Niall who actually meets a lot of these dogs as far as I can tell.

I've emailed Niall to ask him.

"There is no governing body and no petitions as far as i am aware. The fact is is that the government do not care.
I have just joint a comitee for Coalition of responsible dog ownership, which is looking at Parliamentary involvement and we are looking at some rather drastic lobbying ideas.
It is legislation that needs to be changed and the government that need to support.
 
Will keep you posted as things progress"

This is the response I got when I asked about controlling the situation, JaneyK.

D'you know I have no idea. I asked if Niall wanted me to cross post a dog months ago and now regularly get very distressing emails regarding this breed of dog. I actually quite like staffies as a breed, and find it frustrating that certain "types" use them for kudos.

Against breeding staffies unless you're registered? I'll email Niall, if there is one, he'll know.

This situation is so sad and people should be fined for breeding it's about time it came to an end.  I've never seen any petitions against this either.

I too hope this dog can be saved  :(

Sadly, Dawn - got the other email straight after. The lad has got until tomorrow unless a rescue steps in, or a permanent home is found. :( People sicken me sometimes - they breed these dogs to make a fast buck and don't care about what happens to them when the novelty wears off.

Emails received:

"This girl is approx 3, staff cross, very people friendly but un dog tested. Dumped at vets and is an obvious breeder.
She has a vaginal growth and the vets are willing to remove a spay if she can be placed. HOWEVER the Vets WILL euthanase if place cannot be secured. They want an answer asap or she will die
 
Can anyone find a place for this girl??"

"The dog is 1yr to 18 months, he's a black & white staffy, male (E), very good with people and quite affectionate, not bothered by other dogs but if another dog starts he will go back at him and he's big.

I dont know if there is anywhere left for these dogs but please help if anyone can
 
Sorry no picture and I have not met as I cannot bear to see another one I probably can't save.
 
The dog is in a pound. Due to die Thursday (they will hold for a few extra days if can be placed)."
 

I have contact details for these two, please get in touch if you know of a rescue that might have a place or a permanent home.
