Bandit’s show achievements are phenomenal and it makes his owners proud to dedicate his career wins the breed. On average, approximately 60 Staffords are entered per show and therefore the competition is tremendously tough, but the Stafford community has always been very supportive of Bandit when he was given the chance to fly the flag for the breed.

 

Home life

At home Bandit is the ultimate pet. He has a feet fetish and makes it sometimes impossible to put on shoes, otherwise he just loves being around his family. Bandit loves his walks when visiting the family home in the Drakensberg and is trusted to walk without a lead among the many horses, cows and sheep. At a command he is right beside his people. He is never aggressive towards other dogs or animals and therefore his trustworthy, obedient and gentle nature makes him an absolute pleasure to own.
