...Cody is getting castrated!

It's not something I've wanted to do having gone 5 years with no problems. I've no intention of ever studding him but just really didn't feel the need to have him done but he'll be going in for castration in a few weeks time.

Literally everyday now, I get people asking me if I'll let him cover their bitch. Today a young lad with an 8 week old bitch told me, yes told me, that when she is old enough he's going to come and see me because he wants Cody to give her pups. Everyone is always shocked when I say he's never been used as a stud dog and that I have no intention of using him. I explain why. The number of staffies already in dogs homes, being PTS etc, etc and also explain that Cody has a lot of allergies and skin issues which could be passed on. They still don't care. They see a big, stocky, chunky headed staff and want him to produce babies.

We have also been warned in our block that some youths have been looking through letter boxes and trying to find out where certain dogs live and that a number of adult male bull breed dogs have been stolen from houses and gardens recently.

People recognise him all over the local area and know where we live! I've no idea why he's such a celebrity but I really wish he wasn't. I hate it when I have to walk past a group of lads, knowing that they could easily take him off me and there is bugger all I could do about it!

Something weird happened last week. I walked past a group of lads and they all looked at Cody and then started talking about him and one said to the other 'that's the dogs I've seen on ....." I can't remember what he said but it was a website by the sounds of it WTF??

I'm getting him done to try and reduce the risks of him being targeted.

I used to get people saying that to me about Enzo so that was one reason I got him done.
I had someone drive past me once and pull over and ask if I'd stud him!
I do think for the health benefits it's worth it too

He will deffo be less of a theft risk if he is castrated and the health benefits too.

Have you thought about carrying something with you when you walk just in case?

Yes get him done Lou and make sure everyone knows he's been done , i concidered it as i have been asked a couple of times with wiley but tbh its not enough for me to think about having him done , as one of the ppl that asked i know his family anyway and they wouldnt come and take wiley , the other was just some randomer in a van , but i know it does lower the risk of theft

Goodness that all sounds a bit scary. Luckily we don't have groups hanging around but have had the odd person make comments so we're always vigilant of who sees where we live. Always walk the route that people won't see what house we go into. It's awful that we have to do things like this to keep our babies safe.

I would defo get him castrated Lou more so for safety reasons.
I've had people say it to me about Cairo and as soon as I say he's been castrated and say I wouldn't consider it anyway they say "oh that's a shame"
It's a joke these days if you own a bull breed, I always worry if I walk past a group of people but I know that if I kicked up a fuss my two would protect me! X

I get the same with Elsdon and I hate the way some young lads look at him. Tonight it was two Asian youths with a young girl....... Not saying anything about that. However I just know they were looking at him for another reason so will be on my guard for a few days,

Well I've just got to sort out transport help to get him back from the vets after the OP and then once that's sorted, he'll be booked in.

I don't usually get nervous or worry but just recently it's all got a bit creepy. Most of the people in the block are lovely but some do have dodgy mates who are the ones I get nervous about. 'm not worried for myself, just my dogs. The problem with Cody is that he is very vocal. He loves to say hello to people and if they give him eye contact he will start to howl, growl and even bark at them. It's all very playful, he goes down on his front paws and wags his tail but some people don't see it that way. Even some of the lads in the groups back off and wont go near him which makes it worse because then they think he's a big, aggressive staffy, which is even better to some of them.

I never walk him at regular times and always change the route I walk so I think I'll be OK. Most of them are friendly and just want to use him as a stud.

If anyone tries to do anything I think he and Daisy would surprise you and would protect you, in a way if they think he is a tad aggressive it may deter them slightly. No matter how hard kids are they would to knowingly want to get bitten by a dog
