New homes needed for Staffies

By Katia Harston, Chief Reporter Wednesday 14th May 2014

STAFFORDSHIRE Bull Terriers make up half the dogs in RSPCA care in Barnsley that are awaiting new homes.

A spokesman for the animal charity says the breed is the one it most sees coming through its doors.

"In Barnsley alone 50 per cent of the dogs we have available for re-homing are Staffies," she said. "They can make wonderful family pets but through no fault of their own are given a negative press."
