Super Staffies take the win

Staffordshire Bull Terrier voted Britain’s favourite breed

Tyra from Dogs Trust Manchester

We were all glued to our TV screens last night as ITV counted down the nation’s most popular dog breeds, as voted for by the great British public.

A survey of 10,000 people was carried out with the results broadcast live on a special program hosted by Sara Cox and Ben Fogle.

The list was lengthy and included many breeds you’d expect such as Spaniels, Poodles, Labradors and Pugs as well as some lesser known breeds such as Schipperkes, Borzois and Leonbergers.

The winner however was the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and we can totally understand why. It would appear that the fun and bubbly character of this breed coupled with their loving nature has truly captured the hearts of the public.

To celebrate the wonders of the Staffy breed we thought we’d introduce you to some of our Super Staffies who are currently looking for their forever homes right here at Dogs Trust. Check out their profiles and you’ll see what all the fuss is about!
