    oh dear! I think your uncle should stick to his day job.

    Clearly you also need to do some reading on the relationship between an Amstaff and an APBT.

    At the end of the day, if you don't have papers you'll never know whether your dog is purebred or not. You can get some idea by looking at them but it ain't gonna gaurantee anything. I own a SBT without papers, his breeder(BYB) said he was pure but some of his look doesn't quite make the grade ... so like you, i'm stuck in limbo land, not sure. BUT, I don't care. My dog is awesome, i honestly couldn't ask for a better companion.

    Lol I agree with MMJ. Bella has pink around her nose... but that is just because she is white Both of mine are AmStaffies from back yard breeders so there is no way to know if they are pure or not. I believe Harley is more than Bella, she is to short IMO.

    The most important thing with these dogs though is training and socialisation. I hope you are introducing her to as many dogs (so long as they are vaccinated and healthy) as possible. I would also go to puppy school (if you aren't already enrolled), they are very smart dogs and will walk all over you if you let them! They are also more inclined to have dog aggression issues which is why socialisation is so important.

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

    Nice pup.

    Who knows, you can most certainly have a purebred without having a pedigree, and you can most certainly have a pedigree without it being a purebred.

    Re the nose, I pretty much think the little tiny spots of non pigment will fill in as your dog matures, it's quite common, even many pups with full on butterfly noses fill in to a degree.

    I think she's gorgeous, regardless... however, if you made the purchase expecting her to be pedigree and she was supplied without her registry papers, then I would be suspicious - but that's me.

    Re your Uncle - going on his theory, my {then} pedigree and registered lemon and white Beagle with her liver coloured nose would also be considered a pitbull, no? Don't allow rash assessments and uninformed statements interfere with what does and doesn't constitute a pedigree puppy.

    Since the lady failed to show you the father of your gorgeous PUP - I will be the same position of your uncle
    and will not guarantee purebreed, then again it is too young to see if she is pure or not. when she reach 4to6
    months you will see a lot of change and you will recognize more of the breed.

    in addition, they might vary in sizes -

    History wise they are both came from a same BREED - pitty and amstaff basically the same but this is what stuck to my head
    AMSTAFF"is a chosen specific breed for show"

    anyway we can argue with everyone all day about AMSTAFF and PITTY end of the day history provided the answer its up to you
    how to take it
