What is your pets name, breed and age?
My dog’s name is Aya, she is an English Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Aya is seven years young.
How would you describe their personality?
Aya is quite the individual. She is very much a people person. Aya has a whole wardrobe of outfits for all the seasons. Often Aya has an outfit for every day of the week. I am currently in the process of turning the spare room into her own bedroom. Aya is sassy and gets what she wants when she wants. Aya is a very loyal dog and loves to spend her morning laying in the sun with her best friend Ellie (manx cat). She also loves going for outings in the car especially when she goes to her favorite Acai Bowl shop.
Do they have a favorite treat or toy?
Aya’s favorite toys, are the squeaky dummy toys from Kmart. Usually they only last a day before the squeak is destroyed. Once the toy is out of squeak Aya no longer approves and insists on getting a new one.
What is their best trick?
Aya’s best trick is a funny one, she can sit up on her two hind legs looking like a merecat and balancing herself for as long as she see likes. She will always be on the lookout to give somebody two paws up if there is food around. This is also her command for food.
Any advice to someone looking at getting a pet of a similar breed?
Staffy’s require a lot of attention, a lot of time and effort training them. So the interested party would need a lot of patience. In return the staffy would be your best friend as the staffy is a very loyal breed.
