    Nor does it mean that there are no passionate breeders left , breeding quality 'pure' dogs.
    The breed is still around :-)

    To the OP.
    Its not the dog you should be afraid of. Its the owners. The outcome for this dogs behaviour, and future, is totally dependent on the type of people they are and the job they do with this dog

    above link, realistically this is what it all comes down too.

    I had a neighbour with a pure bred pitbull, go to the hunting dog sites, pitbulls sneak in there, they can go under different names though, American Staffy for example.

    So where do you buy a well bred pitbull these days?
    If you want one, you should probably contact a reputable Australian breeder of American Staffordshire Terriers. Same dog breed; I'd just recommend looking for an AST breeder that understands that the APBT/AST should have equal parts of terrier and bull dog. Don't buy one of the current fashion of AmStaff hippotamus dogs. If it is over 30kg, it aint a pit bull. However, if you do want a dog that doubles as a boat anchor, go ahead.

    The APBT is the best of the best dogs (but it is just a dog, like any other breed of dog)

    My avatar? It's a pit bull in a poodle suit (a bit like me really)

    I almost like that, ricey - except where you say they are the same breed of dog. They were once, perhaps, but not any more - not in Australia anyway.

    ooooh....at the risk of raising this old chestnut lol

    Hya,they are very much the same dog.
    If there had been any seperate blood from breeds other than the APBT then yep,not a problem. But the thing is, there has never , NEVER , been any other blood/genes added into the mix. People like to say that but "over 85 odd years have gone into breeding just the Amstaff lines....but that matters very little when it is still APBT blood anyways. And it was only 30/40 years ago the books were reopened to allow a fresh infusion of Pitty blood as the gene pools were becoming small and strained.

    So no,they are the same breed,show lines and working lines I do grant you,but at the end of the day,still very much the same dog.

    It's like saying if you take a few beagles and keep breeding from those that you can create a new breed. You might possibly change some characteristics but they're still beagles.

    They are the same dog; if you keep swimming in the same pool (gene pool) and you never introduce another breed, then the breed remains the same.

    And what a magnificent breed! World's best search and rescue dogs; world's best therapy dogs; world's best tree climbing dogs; world's best drug detection dogs; world's best weight pull dog, and the list goes on. All American Staffordshire Terriers are American Pit Bull Terriers, but not all American Pit Bull Terriers are American Staffordshire Terriers. AmStaffs are a sub-set of the American Pit Bull Terrier. If you own an AmStaff, you own an American Pit Bull Terrier. However, if you own an American Pit Bull Terrier it may not be an AmStaff.

    I get heartily sick of AmStaff owners that try to deny their breeds heritage; they are pit bulls! Get over it.

    I'm with you Mosh. A "pit bull" is just fine - and no problem at all... just a dog.
    Until the moment it ISN'T... then it's a bloody disaster.

    When it all goes wrong it goes TERRIBLY wrong. Then what?

    Everyone says their dog is wonderful, wouldn't hurt a fly, has never attacked anything.
    They all are like that... until the day they DO attack. THEN WHAT?

    Everybody's "really sorry, can't understand it, he's never done that
    before... , , ". By then it's all way too late.

    Dog owners should be held accountable for dog attacks. Maybe if they
    faced big fines if their dog attacked anything, people might think twice
    about owning these kinds of dogs

    So long as this applies to any breed of dog...

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
