Not to get on your case, but I find it strange that someone who thinks that problems with the "bully" (for lack of a better word, I really don't like that word myself) breeds are attributed to the irresponsible owners would allow his dog to play at a children's park off lead.

Beautiful photos...you could really see the personality in them all.

A little creepy...please be sure they stay at your house and don't wander off to mine...but really beautiful photos, I'm glad you posted them!
Thanks! Yes those are my pets and my pics. I do photography as a hobby, so my pets make great subjects to shoot. Thanks for lookin, most people turn the other way and shiver, never wanting to understand them.

Im responsible, he didnt get off his lead untill all of the kids where gone. It was only mine there Before that he mustve had about 15 children petting him, he loves kids. My friend has 11 and loves to visit them. Besides, youre forgetting hte Staff is named "then nanny" and the best dog with children by the AKC. Im being responsible by getting him socialised with other children, on a near daily basis. He even got to run around with two other dogs in the enclosed (abandoned) tennis courts.

BTW, I dont see your post as getting on my case. Was a good observation and you brought it up good as ,,,

Like I said I don't like the name "bully breed" anyway. I have a friend who does rescue work for those breeds and they are not all alike, and I think the name alone needs to be changed because it's bad publicity and all. Again sorry to bring it up but I was curious why you didn't have him on lead in the pictures...which BTW are great. Especially the slide one...my lab used to do that before she tore her cruciate ligament...now we keep her from doing it! I do think though that not all owners are responsible with their dogs off lead and it's a point to be made. We were in a park in NYC that does have an enclosed area for dogs to run off lead. Well someone had their dog, a doberman, off lead in the kids area and by the time he got control of the dog (who was not vicious) he had knocked down and trampled 4 little kids (toddlers) in his excited rush...he was definitely not calm enough to be off and the owner had no control over him. Totally aggrivated me.

My brother-in-law has 22 snakes, 3 terantulas, several lizard things and some rats (which he breeds to feed to some of the snakes...ick!). So although I can appreciated their beauty from a distance, warm and fuzzy thoughts they do not make!...LOL Great pictures though!

I dont mind the term Bully, but i prefer to call him a Staff. I only heard BullY Breed when i came stateside. I agree. A dog shouldnt be allowed off its leash unless it can be recalled really quickly, and is not boistureous. Hes only 4 months, so he is still quite clumbsy. But he is gentle around kids when he can be.
Only time ive ever let him loose is in the tennis courts that are abandoned. But kids came in to see him anyway, but i made sure they asked their parents first.
