    The daddy looks very Pitbull to me. Mummy looks a lot like ChoppaChops Tyson(as I remember correctly).
    I don't know why SBT owners are getting snotty over possible Pit Bulls being called Safford X's. I mean Pit Bulls are known as American Staffordshire terriers. SBT arn't the only ones that can be referred to as a Stafford.
    I hardly doubt its because the owners dont want to 'own up to the truth'. Accept it or not, the SBT and Pit Bull look incredibly alike, they have the same blood.
    The PB is a beautiful breed, as is the Staffy.

    Google images tells me this is a Pit Bull:


    This is an American Staffordshire Terrier:


    And this is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.


    When I typed 'Stafford dogs' in Google images, photos of PBs and SBTs came up.

    Well this SBT owner is sick of her SBT's breed's name being tarnished...

    It may be your opinion that STB's & Pit Bulls look incredibility alike... but not everyone shares your opinions......i for one sure know what breed is which & think looks the best & much prefer over the other.

    Share the same blood maybe..goodness knows what the SBT was mixed with in the USA to create the pit bull...

    why o why does man take a perfect breed & cross breed them!!!!!!!!!!!...idiotcy i say

    Who knows why AF - but these things happen. Did you know that Queen Victoria caused a countrywide uproar when she crossed the working collies with Russian Wolfhounds (borzoi)? She liked the look and colour that they gave to the Collies. The shepherds and farm workers were disgusted.

    So all these years later we still have Rough Collies. Then we got Shelties. To some people these are the best breeds.

    Random story maybe, but my point is that these things all run in cycles. My dogs get called crossbreds all the time and their breed is about 900 years old. Don't stress on it - the ignorant ones are the ones that are missing out AF - not you and I who treasure our beloved breeds just the way they are. .

    The reason us staffy owners get so annoyed when pitbull's are called staffords is quite simple... BSL... Its sad enough that any dog be condemned due to its breed alone, but I do take offence when they try to hide them under the banner of any other breed.. The rule not to breed pitbulls has been in effect here in Victoria for many years now, yet I still see puppies being walked regularly... its a small step from banning a breed to banning a type...

    You're generalising quite a few of people there, Kimbastaff. I doubt most people are "hiding" pit bull heritage by calling them staffy crosses, rather that they just do not know (although I do realise some of the more unscrupulous people will do this xD). The possibility for an amstaff cross to be an amstaff cross and not a pit bull cross (and no, Im not referring to the legal sense of the matter) is not outrageous. Just throwing it out there

    Amstaffs are commonly called "staffies", so quite a few references to "staffy crosses" are in fact amstaffs and not SBTs. I somehow doubt people are out there to "tarnish" the SBT breed/name.

    Dont you just love how people come along and automatically think they know the situation 100%..

    To be honest i came to this forum.. not knowing what WTF BYB was.. not knowing anythign about rescue dogs.. and i thought buying a dog off an official breeder was something only a millionare could afford.. I can admit i fell straight into the deep end without even knowing..

    I came here because its a PUBLIC forum.. if i knew any of this before hand i would of taken the correct path.. but because i was apart of the highly un educated public i bought lex.. i cant go back.. And i never regret buying lex..

    leave your nasty opions at the door, You should of never of stood on your soap box, because its people like you that turn people of logging into this forum.

    cheers

    secondly- how the hell was i nasty? I wished you good luck with your pup ffs, If u dont want to hear my thoughts on the parents DONT BLOODY ASK!!!
    Im not here to cater to your ego, you asked a question and i responded...

    As for your lack of knowledge when purchasing the pup, that is well noted, its fairly obvious i was making a statement in regards to any future puppy buying you may or may not do...not sure how i was nasty? i simply suggested you take a look around and if mum n dad look like these photos and the pups look shy and unhappy then you can reasonably assume the animals are not well kept...and why would you want to support that?


    Your dipicting the situation like i knew what was going on.. I had no idea what so ever.. like i said i was part of a poorly educated public and after the loss of our dog we had for 14 years i seeked a replacement... looked on trading post.. like a person that is un educated would and found a dog/puppy tha ti liked the look of, and like i said i had no idea of BYB and the like..
    How am i supposed to know the dog looks shy and un happy i was uneducated, when i saw the puppies on the day i picked up lex they were all running around and playing... i was not supporting anything at the time because basically i didnt know.. and i cant say i buggerd up because i didnt know.. whch is the truth. And thanks to the kind people on this forum i have seen the light and have lernt a valuble lesson in regards to purchasing another dog down the track

    And also the question was What breed do you think lex is?... not have a go at me for buying from a BYB.
    pull your head in and stop making things akward..

    Old post guys, dragged up from the depths of time. The OPs post was when they first joined looking at the heritage of her dogs breeding.
    BLD your dog looks like what the breeder says him to be to me. He's a beaut but I have told you that before I think in another thread.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.
    Beau.
