because, hes a little tough guy.. Rocky the films :)
we have a few staffys and when he was a pup, even though he was little he wouldnt give in to no-one or nothing... even at feeding time he would growl at the bigger dogs, and scare them away from there food.
so we named him after Rocky the film.... it was a joke at the time... but even now he's older he still thinks hes the hardest thing on the planet!! the way he walks and just the way he is...
having said all that, ive got 3 kids... and this dog would give its life to protect them... it really would.
and of all the dogs we have... hes the one who makes it his job, to patrol the house every night to make sure we sleep soundly.
