Name just a sales pitch
NEIL McMahon's article, ''The war on terrier'' (2/10), had an omission: it did not explain what a so-called ''American Staffordshire terrier'' is. This is a different creature from the intelligent and family-friendly English Staffordshire bull terrier. Dr Hugh Wirth will tell you that ''American Staffie'' is a sales-pitch misnomer for a pit bull terrier.
