    Interesting, most of Buckleys litter mates were either fully black or brindle. Buckley was the only tan coloured one. I have a friend who owns a mastiff x ridgie that looks almost identical to Buckley, so who knows hey!

    I do hope he still has more growing to do, that picture makes him look a little taller than he actually is i think. Abbie (the pointer in the picture) weighs less than him, but is much more gangly and awkward. I don't think he much likes the fact that she is bigger than him.

    Was doing some research this afternoon, typed in 'pitbull breeders australia' into google. Doesn't seem like there is much out there but then i guess with the bad name the breed has, there wouldn't be much demand. I can certainly see why people would 'cheat' the system and pass their dog off as something else. But i guess what's even more annoying is the reason why these dogs have a bad name to start with, us humans exploiting them

    Not quite right K&P

    Up until last year QLD was probably the worse state in which to own a restricted breed. Currently in Victoria a Ranger has the power to see you on the street , decide your dog is a Pitty and seize and destroy said dog. Barbaric,totally pathetic laws.

    Yes,there should be no BSL whatsoever.

    It simply isn't logical, just or fair.

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    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.
    That bit K&P
    There are laws regarding the owning of them , it is why they are a restricted breed .

    Reread what I said. As a WHOLE Australia (as in there is NO Legislation that Australia has as a country) does not have laws against owning, breeding or selling APBT hence the reason the territories don't have laws against them. Australia as a country only bans their importation. The States make their own laws and that is why they are a restricted breed in the States of Australia.

    If the Aussie states didn't have the legislation they do we would still be free to own our dogs without fear of persecution. Breeders wouldn't be able to import new lines but everyone would still be able to buy, own and sell the dogs because Australia as a country has no legislation against owning them.

    I have been told you can import Pitty semen and that is legal to do so, although what you would do with pups if you used it in some states might be a problem.

    I had never thought of that MBM I guess how would they tell if it was APBT semen or something else? No way of telling.
