    remember too some lines of pits have been used in protection work. There are still some dogs out there that have human aggressive tendencies in Australia. Not part of the standard at all for a bull breed but it's something to keep in mind.

    'labrador' personality
    I don't think I've met many Labradors with this either. There's so many dodgy lab breeders, they don't care if they send out an aggressive nightmare. And so many owners think Labs = born a fully trained guide dog... and ruin the dog.

    I know right? Most of the Labradors I've met are very highly strung and have just plain weird personalities.

    Lol you're right... nothing does change does it Peter.

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

    Labrador personality is a term we use in breeding, we are looking for that very friendly, I love anybody and everybody personality. Eg: If I am looking to breed a bitch that is a little withdrawn or shy the only dog I will consider for her is one of good breeding AND a very outgoing, in your face personality.

    I look after lots of Labs, the most common dog in the kennels. Most here in NSW are over the top, jump up and hit you with their muddy paws, wipe the coffee table clear of anything, tail wagging, I love you, owner? what owner? this is the best place I've got so many friends type of labrador.

    Lack of manners can't be blamed on bad breeding, that's owner ignorance again.

    It is very hard to find a proper pure bred PB since BSL and they ban in AU, there is no
    registry for pedigrees

    I can't really speak for Peter, but I think his response was tongue in cheek pbk. You can't buy a good quality one, because the breed is in trouble and with the laws the way they are, resurrecting the breed is highly unlikely.

    You can't. Period. We have BSL to thank for this.
    If you wish to buy a well bred dog that somewhat resembles the physical characteristics of a Pit Bull and has temperament to match, then you need to look at purchasing an AmStaff with pedigree papers from a well researched, ethical, registered breeder.

    There is no other way to maximize your likelihood of success, and to safeguard your purchase.

    Until we end up like Italy, that is, with 90+ breeds banned. When that happens, we might actually get some action because more people will be impacted than not. Then those sitting back saying 'not my breed, not my problem' won't be able to anymore- because it WILL be your breed- and everyone else's for that matter.

    I think pitbulls in Australia - are a bit like tasmanian tigers. Extinct.

    What we have left are dogs that sometimes look a bit like a pitbull - but they're more like proto-dog ie what you get when you have multigeneration bitsas bull breeds and mastiff mixes.
