REINA ~ Queen (Spanish, Pronounced Ray-Na)
Our dog Reina is an American Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She is friendly, loyal, strong and a big suck at the same time. She is well trained and a very good example of her breed.
While she is a member of our family, she is also a dog. We are conscious of this fact not only because she is a powerful breed but because we love her and would never want her to hurt someone.
This week I was involved in some tweets about AmStaff’s looking for new families. I was reminded that these dogs are targetted for abuse and wonder how people could ever harm an animal.
To know them is to love them.
Know Any American Staffordshire Bull Terrier Dogs Personally?
Note. We have had Reina since long before the breed ban. She chose us to be her family.
Once, when we were out for a walk, with a leash and a muzzle, a dog with no leash and no muzzle attacked Reina. She could not protect herself.
Given all the restrictions on the breed, I would not want to put an animal through that again. Regardless, it’s not an issue because this breed is currently restricted in Ontario.
