Staffordshire Bull Terriers in England
If you are looking to adopt a Staffordshire Bull Terrier in England, hope this article will help you. I wanted to create a little directory and list a few breeders of Staffordshire Bull Terriers in England for your convenience.
If there is a breeder you like (or are located close to), be sure to read all the information on their website carefully and see if this is someone you would want to work with. A good breeder will invest a lot of effort into raising healthy dogs, which means screening the parents for genetic health issues and making sure the puppies don’t inherit any grave conditions. Good breeders show their dogs in the Show ring and will always be happy to tell you about their dogs’ pedigrees as this is usually something they are proud of.
A good breeder will also have you visit them and the pups before signing the deal. Which brings us to: a trustworthy breeder will always have you sign a contract! A contract is a document stating your (and the breeder’s) rights and obligations towards each other and towards the dog and is absolutely critical when buying a puppy. Do not trust a breeder that doesn’t offer you a contract.

Jolihem (Notts & Lincs)

According to their website, their kennels were established back in the 1950s! The kennels have owned and bred a record number of Champion Staffordshire Bull Terriers in the breed’s country of origin, and have played an important part in the establishing of the breed. One of the first owners of the kennel, the late Lionel F. Hemstock, has been into the breed for pretty much his whole life.
Today, Jolie still produces excellent Staffords. The dogs do not live in the Kennels, but in the house with the family, which satisfies their “pack animal” nature and helps with the socialization of the puppies. Although the Kennel breeds excellent show dogs, no puppy is discarded even if they don’t grow up to be “perfect” for showing. This is a great breeder that approaches breeding with the utmost respect and care for the breed.
They care greatly about the best possible living conditions for their dogs and puppies. They only allow their puppies to be purchased by the owners that can put in proper care for the dog, including housing, nutrition, exercise and socialization. This breeder insists that their dogs wear proper collars and are tattooed and microchipped. They also ask the future owners to leash the dog when in public. They offer some other advice as well, and also accept their dogs back if the new owners can’t continue caring for them.
