Little rant.

I was walking my dog this morning.
Long nice run in the local park, played with all his other doggy friends.
On the way home, I walked past the polling station so I thought let's kill two birds with one stone and vote.
I was not even half way down the drive before the man at the entrance said I can't take my dog inside.
OK, no bother as I live quite close.

I came back and there before my eyes two women with a Pug and a lab in the hall. I confronted the man as to why I was not allowed in with my dog and he basically admitted it's because mine is a Staffie.
Really boils my blood that some people are so ignorant and have these prejudices about the breed.
I go to various local parks, and most of the time it's the little dogs that cause the most problems and are the least trained and yet no one says anything about them.

Bloody help that's awful. Either they let dogs in or they don't. What difference does the breed make?! confused

yANBU to be peed off.
That would give me the rage.

Some people are just ignorant.

That is shit and massively ignorant angry. You have my sympathies.

I understand that there was a lot of racism exhibited in some of the campaigning but didn't realise it extended to our canine friends sad
Staffys get such a bad press.

We've got the sweetest most loving rottie. One person actually said I was wrong having him as they are illegal! Ignorance and bad media. Staffies are such loving dogs as all breeds are. A few twatty owners ruin it for everyone. This is my terrifying monster!

Wolfiefan Thu 23-Jun-16 23:23:41

Rotties are lush!
Worst behaved dog round here is a little Border Terrorist. (Not a typo!)

justdontevenfuckingstart Thu 23-Jun-16 23:28:41

Wolfe we have a cairn ish terrier and she is an absolute bugger.

Wolfiefan Thu 23-Jun-16 23:33:33

That's terriers for you.
And why I want a wolfhound! grin

I have a Labrador.....and a 6 mo Mini EBT. Breed prejudice is awful.

Hate the hatred towards staffies.
I would have asked to make a formal complaint. Fuckin jobs worth angry

monkeyfacegrace Fri 24-Jun-16 17:47:52

I LOVE staffs.

I have a whippet who is a total cunt and i hate. Well, sort of hate. Okay, so everyone else hates her, quite rightly, as she is a cunt, but I love her.

But I'd still swap her for a staff.

The worst ones in my park are Jack Russell, Westies, Scottish terriers and Schnauzers.
They just react to other dogs and terrorise them, lunging and barking.

So ignorant. Staffies are gorgeous.

On another note someone voting the same time as me had taken their cat. A giant fluffy ginger Tom.

Acardwithbigletters Sat 25-Jun-16 09:55:31

Yy to Jack Russells being worse - nippy yappy little buggers some of them.

I love all dogs, love Staffies smile

Raaaaaaaaar angry So pissed off on your behalf. That's awful. So would he have let a feisty BT in, or a happy Chihuaha, or a pain in the ass Jack Russell. Such ill-informed ignorance. And I too am sharing the Staffie love star

Dieu Sat 25-Jun-16 11:02:01

Gah, that was meant to be yappy!

Gide Sat 25-Jun-16 22:02:52

Worst dog I ever met was a springer. Recently, a weimerarmer (sp?) attacked mine, nasty vicious bastard it was. Three different staffies attacked mine over a period of a week, but it's not a breed I fear, it was just individual nasty dogs, breed doesn't matter.
