REF MR BLANDFORD'S comments- oh dear talk to any vet or rescue centre Mr Blandford.

You will be surprised and shocked to find that Staffies are the most abused dogs, also most neglected and are not the top dogs for biting.

The highest are labradors, Jack Russells, collies - ask the post office.

We rescued three Staffies, they were brilliant dogs. Two were cruelly treated, one here in Southampton. So starved he couldn't stand.

Stop your bias, by the by, a rescue collie bit my husband's son's friend.
