We found this story about sweet,kind,beautiful and adored Saxony.Saxony a purebred American Staffie, was a wonderful show dog and enjoyed life.She was friendly and loving making sure that everyone that passed her was her new friend (especially those with food).She never hurt anybody, and only wanted to love and be loved.When Saxony and her family moved into their new home well here is the story from her page:
"Saxony was shot and killed less than a day after moving to our new home on 12 acres in Texas. Because of all the media hype, our neighbor was afraid that she was going to get out of my yard and attack his 2 year old daughter. We had left Saxony out in the fenced yard because we were going to close on the house and she had not yet been out to potty. The closing was extremely short, and we arrived back at the house 58 minutes later. I knew immediately that my dog was shot when I saw the fenced area empty and my neighbor sitting outside his house. The neighbor had explained that "pit bulls" are dangerous and he was afraid she was going to attack him (yes, a SHOW dog). I explained that she was NOT a pit bull, and in fact, a registered American Staffordshire Terrier. I also explained that she was a friendly dog raised around my infant and 7 yr old son. He told me that everything on the news has given him enough reason to be on-guard. The sherrif's department wouldn't do anything because it was outside city limits and you are allowed to shoot dogs if you feel threatened. Well, he felt threatened, with the dog in MY yard. She was 7 yrs old."

Please spred Saxony's story so things like this can be stopped! Another horrible thing is that the police won't do anything.This terrible man walked into her yard! Kind Saxony was enclosed in her fenced yard, she didn't jump the fence and attack the man or his family no she was probably sniffing around her new yard. And the man shot this dog because of her breed! Not because she did somthing to him because she didn't.JUSTICE FOR SAXONY!hughughughug
Thank you

That type of insensitive stupidity makes me embarrassed to be a Texan. What an animal. People like that are the ones that spread the fear and hatred because they don't take the time to educate themselves. They would just rathter kill a family pet and beloved friend. I am so sorry for your loss. For Texans everywhere, I can assure you we are not all like that. RIP Saxony. We'll miss you.

My mommy has been pawmailing Saxony's mom. My mommy is going to get the addresses/emails of city officials. As soon as she does, she'll post them on Dogster. Apparently, the guy who killed Saxony worked for the county. What does that tell you!

This is one of the most heartbreaking things I've ever heard. My parents, before I was born, had a dog named Champ. He was shot too because he crossed the road and into a man's pecan orchard. The man happened to be there so he shot him. I don't even really know why. I don't think my parents know why either. It was unrelated to his breed though, so in a way, this is even worse. Poor Saxony. It's absurd that her family can't get justice for her. How does shooting a dog in her own fenced-in yard equate defending oneself from said dog?? I don't understand. Where is the justice?

I am in shock .. and speechless. I would love to send this man a letter to let him know what I think of him. What the heck gives him the right? cry. I am so mad and hurt. I am so sorry for your loss Sax's family. I understand the law if you feel treatened , if a dog wanders onto your property .. but Saxony was in HER OWN YARD!!!! The laws really need to be looked at. If this (I can't find a nice word to use here) .. man... had come over and shot bullet holes into their car or house... he would be charged with some sort property damage at least. This is awful.
