SWMBO's Staffie lives with her ex. (Couldn't be separated from the Boxer/Dalmation cross, as then he'd need therapy).
Lily (black staff with white spot on the belly) was the runt, but is very sweet. However, she is the houdini of all houdinis. I've personally seen her scale a 9 ft fence. Her best was, after being missing for 5+ days, turning up in Hurstbridge. (They lived in Northcote). Piecing stories together - she took the train into the city, and then out to Hurstbridge. Just following people.
She is the brains of the family (not hard with only a boxer/dalmation cross), and gets Dave to do all the dirtywork. Getting old and arthritic now (10+ yrs old).
Anyway - the above 'personality', we've been informed, is quite normal. (Especially the climbing/escaping bit).
