....we are the official sponsor of Ziggy Trixx's first UK Tour!
For all of you who do know Ziggy Trixx just yet (shame on you ), Ziggy Trixx is a young Staffordshire Bull Terrier on a mission to change the way people perceive his breed. He has been entertaining the public since he was just a pup and already has a massive impact on social media! He has been in countless articles worldwide, has been featured in magazines and has appeared on television. He was recently awarded 1st place for “Most Talented Dog” at SuperDogs Live 2015 at the London Pet Show.
Many people judge Staffies and think that the breed is dangerous. We believe however, this not to be true as Staffordshire Bull Terriers are very intelligent, loving and loyal. A dog’s behaviour is a reflection of the owner, but sadly the stereotyping of Staffies causes many to be mistreated or abandoned.
As a result, most of the rescue centres in the UK are filled with unwanted Staffies & Staffie Crosses. Unfortunately, due to the bad reputation of Staffies many end up not getting adopted or even worse, end up being put down.
We feel that every dog deserves a chance and instead of judging Staffies, we should help them. It would make a difference not only in the dog’s life but quite possibly also your own, as we know from experience - owning a Staffie can be the greatest blessing. And it would of course mean that no more good dogs are unnecessarily being put down!
Although Anicura's mission is to help all dogs (and Cats!) suffering from problem skin, we do feel very passionate about Ziggy's mission. Anicura's CEO Bella is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier mixed with a Rottweiler and although she is an absolute sweetheart, people unfortunately very often get quite scared of her. Despite her great behaviour, people will walk the other way or will pick up their dogs at the sight of Bella.
That is why we are big supporters of Ziggy Trixx & his mission to get rid of all the prejudice against so called ‘dangerous breeds’!
Anicura fully supports Ziggy’s efforts to improve the reputation of breeds like Staffies and we are proud to be the official sponsor of Ziggy’s Tour to ensure he gets the message out there!
