    You also forgot Kelpies

    Pit bull's and AMstaffs are very similar in looks and AMstaff's are part of what makes a pitty I'm fairly sure? most definitely could be wrong though!

    Hi Pugga

    A Pittbull is an un papered "American Staffordshire Terrier / AmStaff."

    The term "Staffy" is a slang / short name for a Staffordshire Bull Terrier" in which is what Floyd, Ruby & Sumo are

    What breed are Dortes? Staffordshire bull terriers? Are they English?

    I didn't mean offend her I love Amstaffs and PB's (well as little puppies anyway, when I am less fearful of pissing them off).

    I rescued a Staffy once but she had a brain tumor and jumped through glass windows and ran in front of cars the poor thing. I only had her for 3 days and then had the place where I rescued her from PTS.. it was cruel to make her live a life like that.

    ETA- she was tiny too.. much smaller than an Amstaff and from memory they called her an English Staffy.

    Pugga......

    yes Dortes 2 dogs are Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The term "English" SBT is rarely said by some people, as they are officially known as Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Their is only ever one breed of the SBT & that is what both Dorte & my dogs are, "Staffordshire Bull Terrier's". But i do sometimes call my SBT's "English" version because i don't want my SBT's being classed as something they are not. I have on numerous occasions had strangers approach me & say in their own words "it's nice to see the one & only true Staffy - the "English 1" & not the Yankie version.

    It's annoys the crap out of me that the American Staffordshire Terrier has the words " Staffordshire Terrier" in it, IMO if the AmStaff was given a different name then their would be a lot less confusion between the 2 breeds.

    It's not fair on the true original SBT to have its good name associated with an American converted version of it. God only know's what the Yanks crossed with the SBT to create a AmStaff/pitt bull.

    Oh I can see how that would make your blood boil AF. I think I will just refer to Amstaffs as PB's from now on.. SBT's are such sweet, loyal dogs and totally different to PB's IMO.

    Not going to get nasty just going to say I am glad that you said "IMO".

    I am sure you are very well aware that I disagree

    If only you could meet Bailey face to face *sigh* I would put money on it that she would change your mind
