Motion text

That this House commends the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club for promoting the Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed and responsible dog ownership on the occasion of National Staffordshire Bull Terrier Weekend on 12 and 13 November 2011; notes that Staffordshire Bull Terriers are among the top 10 most popular breeds registered with the Kennel Club and are known to be one of the most friendly, affectionate and loyal family dogs; further notes with sadness that the breed is frequently misrepresented in the press as vicious and dangerous as well as being the most common breed that is abandoned in rescue centres around the country; and therefore calls on all Staffordshire Bull Terrier owners and dog lovers alike to continue to highlight what a wonderful family pet this great British breed of dog can be.
