Updated on January 25, 2013

Meet Kingston!

Im Kingston and im a rottweiler cross Staffordshire bull terrier and im two years old and I like the usual things like :

running in the woods,

Swimming in the nature reserve lake and up setting all the illegal fishing men,

My Favorite dog toy is my Extreme Kong because it's so tough and especially when it's stuffed with my Favorite beef spread make with fresh roasted beef joint.

My daily food is Royal Canin Breed Specific Adult Dog Food Rottweiler 26 I love the big kibbles

7 Week Old Puppys

This was Kingston and his brothers at 7 week old, I was told that the little one at the back is the runt, He was the smallest out of all of them

The Life Changing Day Begins

Kingston is Here

Well it all started when I got my promotion from site work with long hours to a nice desk job in the office with the odd trip to site, That's when I started to look for a dog one advert kept drawing me in, It was some rottweiler cross Staffordshire bull terrier puppies because they looked adorable. and after a little more research on the internet I phoned the owner and arranged to meet

Two weeks later I was the proud owner of a dog called Kingston a rottweiler cross Staffordshire bull terrier, He was jet black with a clump of white hair at the top of the chest.

      He's a lovely looking boy, such a beautiful shiny coat. He loves the camera doesn't he?

      Upsetting all the illegal fishermen is a great calling in life. I see Kingston likes having his picture taken and often seems to be posing so you get a nice shot of him. I like his saddle bags. I heard on the Dog Whisperer once that working dogs in particular respond well to carrying a pack because it makes them feel like they are doing something.
