The Downlands Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club has a puppy coordinator who covers the area in which the Club operates.
Peter Hopgood : 01980 677130 / 07824443803
The purpose of this page is to complement the valuable role performed by our puppy co-ordinators. If you wish to sell your puppies or wish to buy a puppy please get in touch with our co-ordinators who will be able to advise you. Please do consider the time of night when calling!
These notices will be left in place for three months or until such time as we are advised by the vendors that they wish to withdraw them. To avoid unnecessary frustration and inconvenience we ask that vendors inform us as soon as possible on having secured homes for their puppies.
This service is offered free of charge to Downlands Club Members only who have litters available. Please consider the ‘SALE OR TRANSFER OF STOCK’ section of our code of ethics, reproduced for your convenience at the foot of this page.
