    thanks choppa,

    I think I have two "dangerous" dogs..... With that definition, which dog will be free from it, seriously?
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    I was under the impression that restricted breeds were automatically declared to be 'dangerous' ?

    Maybe the dog does have pitbull in it. There are obviously a lot of people out there that are breeding them still and labelling them as something else so they can get around the 'restricted breed' laws. You raise a friendly, well behaved dog (which is what this dog in question is) and it gets out one day, only for the council with whom the dog is all ready registered with, to turn around and declare it to be something else based on their own merit. Absolutely disgusting!

    That is exactly right Tiff.

    Phoenix was sold to me as an Amstaff X it wasn't until afterwards that I realised what I really had. It is a terrible thing to do because people go through what your friend's friend is going through or don't put in the right amount of time, socialisation and training and don't realise the breed can become dog selective or dog aggressive until it is too late. They need to be in the right hands but when people flog them off as a different breed it makes that impossible.

    So am i right in thinking a pitbull cross is not a restricted breed? only purebreds?

    It's just that you're obviously not allowed to breed restricted dogs or import them (that i know of), so surely most pitbulls and other restricted breeds out there, are cross breeds or some sort now?

    My boy was sold to me as a staffy x labrador. I'm no expert but i do think at times that he looks like he has pitbull in him.

    No I have checked the WA legislation and the restriction includes pure and cross bred APBT. But proving the dog actually has APBT in it is impossible. Luckily for those of us in QLD the legislation was changed last year and does not include and Pitbull crosses only purebreds.

    Import laws have been in since 1992. Each state creates there own legislation and in some states they are banned all together and in others you can own them with restrictions.

    Your boy doesn't look Pittie at all to me, actually he doesn't look Staffy at all to me either. He looks Ridgeback to me without the big ears.

    Hmmm would make a lot more sense if there was one law for all. Seems silly, one state banning them all together and another allowing them. Keira & Phoenix, how did you come to realise your girl had pitbull in her?

    That ridgeback in the first photo, on the left looks a lot like buckley did when he was younger. This is a more recent photo of him..face is a lot longer and ears sit oddly. weighs about 25kg but is still quite small (bigger than a staffy but smaller the a ridgie) but he might still have a little bit of growing to go..i just call him a staffy cross because he has nature of one. fearless, crazy, rough as guts and incredibly strong

    Yup yup definitely has Ridgie in him. It may be that one of the parents had Ridgeback in them and it has throw back to him a lot more than his parents.

    Keira in my siggy has Ridgeback in her but has more of a bullmastiff head. Where as her litter mate a sister looks like pure Ridgeback it is crazy.

    I was at a Lure Coursing event over the weekend and his face and body type definitely look like a lot of the pure Ridgies I saw there. He has long legs and at only 6 months old he won't start bulking up for another 6 months or so. Expect him to put on weight then. My girl is now 11 months old and is only 25 kilos so he is still pretty big.

    ETA - As a whole Australia doesn't have laws against owning a APBT or any of the other breeds just a ban on importing them which is why NT and ACT have no laws against them because they are part of the Commonwealth and general stay in line with Commonwealth Laws. Shouldn't be BSL at all.
