    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.
    THis is the fact now in Australia - very very hard to look for a pure bred one - in addition some of them more look like American Bullies because of the mix breeding with bigger dogs

    red nose is another stereotype - as you know Red is commonly associated with demonic/devil figure, right?
    so no wonder media or other people associated red nose as another common name for APBT.
    Thats right the nose colour has got nothing to do with it, pits come with many different colour noses.

    Have to agree with the nose colour, from what I personally know only 2 actual tight OFRN were here publicly, out of public prob a few more not many though, who knows/nose and who cares IMO. Everything else is just dilute colour as seen ever where.

    I think most has been said anyways.....

    LOL I had a bit of a chuckle at Mosh who said "Never trust a pitbull not to fight" (this meaning, fight another dog, not a person), and then separated out the staffy into some other category LOL.

    Clearly hasnt heard staffs can be dog aggressive also (putting aside the "all breeds can" - because if we are being honest, there are some breeds more prone to it).

    As far as I know, Staffies have had their selective breeding for fighting watered down over the last 150 years or so, whilst American pitbulls have a much more recent history of being specifically bred to fight other dogs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Pits descended from Staffies and represent a specialized proto-breed that was hybridized specifically for dog fighting?

    I met a whippet this morning with severe scarring on her neck.
    The owner said she was attacked by the dog next door, a Golden Retriever.

    Yes, those cute, pretty ones that are so loved by advertising agencies.

    The only real difference between an SBT and APBT is the size and build. Temperament is very much the same

    I've never actually met a pure pitbull, but I've known some good staffies and some very untrustworthy ones. If pitbulls are statistically larger and more aggressive than staffies, then that makes them more dangerous. I'm just basing my opinion on the statistics and information I find. You really have to sift through the propaganda and emotional arguments, there is very little objective information about pitbulls out there.

    As with all breeds, staffies suffer from poor breeding and poor dog ownership, so yes there are some less than desirable dogs out there(imo mostly due to poor ownership rather than breeding). Pittbulls are statistically larger than staffies, but i'm really interested in where you found the statistics that pitbulls are more aggressive(especially when talking about sifting through the propaganda and emotional arguments)???
