    Just saw an update on the woman who was attacked in Victoria, they are pushing for a complete ban and are talking about euthanising any and all pitts or mixes. A representative from the RSPCA didn't flat out say they should be banned but hinted at it.


    They ARE banned.

    But they aren't at the moment

    Look, I'm not going to go back to other thread mentioning Pitts but I just wanted to say sorry for stirring up trouble.

    Not what I intended. I need to learn to use that filter between my brain and my hands.

    How can they prove a crossbreed to have pitbull blood? Do they have DNA testing that can positively identify what breed is in a dog? I would think no due to ALL dogs being scientifically the same animal. Aren't all dogs (except dingo) classed as Canis familiaris whether it a chihuahua or st bernard? Otherwise all breeds would have their own scientific name and crossing one with another would be considered hybridisation. I don't know fully but scientific ID on carpet pythons (example) is a popular debate on the reptile forums and the dog is always used as an example of what isn't hybrid except crossing the dingo.

    I query how can they prove a crossbred dog to be pitbull background. Will they accept what's wriiten in black & white, will they accept opinions of others? My dog is registered and microchipped as a staffy x unknown. I have had only two ppl point at my dog and say "that dog has pitbull in it because it has .....and only PBs do that.". These 2 ppl consider themselves highly qualified to be allowed to offer judgement, but I wonder how the authorities will go about policing the ban on these dogs. After all, without evidence there is no case.
