We expect to have at least three new members in the very near future when some bitch
puppies on order from England arrive. Another future member scheduled for autumn
arrival in the States is Mrs. Eeva-Lllsa Brotherus from Finland. She is the owner of
Finnish-bred Bearcats Belladonna (ex Bandits Belle-lettres by Towans Lord John).
All Canadian members are urged to send copies of the pedigrees of their stock to
SBTC/USA Secretary Steve Stone (1125 N. Mar Vista, Pasadena, Calif. 91104) who will
register the animals with the club and then return the pedigrees along with Official
SBTC/USA/USA Pedigrees at no charge.
A Club letter requesting official separate recognition of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier by
the AKC has been sent to Mr. Dick, Executive Vice-President of the AKC. Members
will be informed of the results of this correspondence as soon as possible.
The Breed Standard is to be found in John F. Gordon's books, "The Staffordshire Bull
Terrier Handbook,' and "Staffordshire Bull Terriers." These publications are usually
available at the larger bookstores and at dog shows here in the USA. If members
encounter difficulty obtaining either, they may contact the Secretary who may be able to
help them. The SBTC/USA Breed Standard, naturally, is identical to the English
Standard. However, it has been suggested that for the benefit of new owners in the USA
an additional paragraph be appended thusly: "No exhibit whelped after January 1, 1967,
shall be cropped, docked, de-whiskered, trimmed, or altered in any way except that the
long hair on the underside of the tail may be trimmed. Members' opinions on this
paragraph are solicited.
