MORE than 60 Staffordshire Bull Terriers were rehomed from the RSPCA's Block Fen Animal Shelter last year.
But the charity has called for more owners to come forward, with many Staffies in desperate need of good new homes.
Across the region, 80 Staffies were rehomed from Block Fen, near Wimblington, and from the Blackberry Farm Animal Centre near Aylesbury.
Jackie Williams, manager of Block Fen, said: "Some people think Staffies don't make good pets but when in the right hands, well cared for and properly trained, they can make brilliant companions.

"If you're thinking of getting a pet, please visit our special new website and find out more about Staffies. You can also visit an RSPCA centre to get to know one of the thousands of animals in our care.
"Our staff can help you decide if you can provide a good home for a dog and, if so, whether a Staffie could be the right dog for you."

"And if you adopt a Staffie, you'll know you've given an extra special animal a much-needed new home."
Across the country 507 Staffordshire Bull Terriers and Staffie crosses were rehomed - the highest number of new homes found for any breed of dog.
This RSPCA week (April 26-May 2) the charity is encouraging everyone thinking of getting a dog to consider a Staffie and help us continue to find them good new homes.
A new RSPCA website - www.gettoknowadog.co.uk - launched today and aims to help people find out more about adopting a Staffie.
