We offered to foster Chopper about three months after we got Angel. He was 10 months old and he’d been living at the shelter for three months already. He’d been bought from a pet shop as a pure bred Staffordshire Bull Terrier [buyer beware!] and the reason he was surrendered was because the owners were moving into a unit. I firmly believe they got rid of him cause he’s such a huge pain in the ass!!

It didn’t take long for Chopper to work his way into our hearts. He’s a very full on dog with an appetite for destruction and he still breaks my heart on a regular basis, but we love him to bits and despite his pitfalls he’s a great little dog and a consummate professional when it comes to his modeling!

Chopper’s DNA tests revealed that he’s a Staffordshire Bull Terrier crossed with an unknown mixed breed! Money well spent, I’m sure you’ll agree!!!

More photos of Chopper can be viewed on Flickr.
