    must spay/neuter their dogs

    other than this you can own one?

    Can you import one from over seas?

    You definately cannot legaly import them.
    They are prohibited from entering the country.

    Apart from then I guess you could but the thing is,people still are not to sell,gift etc....
    So in effect they are saying no.

    SA dog and cat management board act is what you need.

    Most councils have a link to it.

    I don't know how they tell the difference between an American Stafford and a pitbull. So if you register the dog, it's an "american stafford" - yes?

    Legislation

    I know the pdf says 1995, but that is just the first year it came in, it's been amended a few times since.

    Prescribed breed includes pitbulls. They must be desexed and you cannot sell them etc. All the fines for breaches by a prescribed breed are 10x for other dogs.

    45B—Specific duties relating to dogs of prescribed breed
    (1) A person who owns or is responsible for the control of a dog of a prescribed
    breed is guilty of an offence if, while not effectively confined to premises of
    which that person is the occupier, the dog—
    (a) does not have a muzzle securely fixed on its mouth so as to prevent it
    from biting any person or animal; or
    (b) is not under the effective control of a person by means of physical
    restraint.
    Maximum penalty: $2 500.
    Expiation fee: $210.
    (2) A person who owns or is responsible for the control of a dog of a prescribed
    breed is guilty of an offence if the dog is not desexed.
    Maximum penalty: $2 500.
    (3) It is a defence to a charge of an offence against subsection (2) if it is proved that
    the defendant believed on reasonable grounds that the dog was desexed.
    (4) A person who sells or gives away, or advertises for sale or to give away, a dog
    of a prescribed breed is guilty of an offence.
    Maximum penalty: $2 500.

    Importation is probably on the customs site ie do a google with site:customs.gov.au

    If an Amstaff is from a registered breeder with kennel papers then its safe.
    Just registering your dog as Amstaff with Council is not only dangerous but silly.An Amstaff with no papers is a Pit Bull.

    Its against the law to breed,sell,give away,not have a fully enclosed run/cage to keep them in all states apart from NT,ACT and to a lesser extent now Tasmania. Against the law to import into Australia.


    And people wonder why we get so passionate about BSL and our breed.

    how can they say its a pitbull if it doesn't have papers saying that?

    Because they arn't a recognised breed here.
    Here they dont need to prove it is a Pit Bull,we have to prove it isn't.

    Thats why the old catch cry of there is no-one in Australia who can ID a Pit Bull is incorrect. They do get ID'd and they do get put to sleep everyday. Saying that people who have been around dogs for perhaps many years cannot id a Pit Bull is stupidity and its not going to help you win should you take it to Court.

    Bastard of a Law it is.

    SA is one of the best places to own one. Apart from the territories that is.

    Taken from the Court Transcripts in the De Frey V Logan Council.

    The law is flawed in every state. This is the 2nd court case this has been stated in.

    Ok choppa Bailey is registered with the council as an AmStaff X Staffordshire Bull Terrier as at the time this is what I believed she was, also the vets put this on her vaccination certificates as they thought that is what breed she was.

    what should I have registered her as?
