Thread: Is My Boy a "Pittbull"?

    No they can't really stop a breeding program. What they do is stop them from being able to register the pups or they go on limited register.
    You get shocking versions of all breeds. It depends on how good the breeder and program is.

    In Sweden you can register a poodle based on it's height not breed. In saying that though, all 3 "breeds" of poodle have the exact same breed standard, it's only the height that changes.
    Until recently in Aus is a Miniature Poodle that was over 15 inches could be sent from the ring and disquialified. That is why I see showing as being so important to breeders, to help keep them on track.

    just a little advice, if anyone is worried about their dog being labelled as a pitbull all you need by law to say otherwise is a form signed by the vet that states their breed (can be desexing, microchipping or vaccination form) or of course pedigree papers. tell everyone you know about this so we can spread the word and help save dogs lives

    The difficulty is finding a vet willing to risk litigation in order to sign saying the dog is not of that breed.

    The implication that is then given is that dog is 'safe' for the general public and if that dog does attack someone they are liable.

    Which is just a perfect demonstration of how counterproductive it is to move the focus away from responsible ownership regardless of breed in favour of BSL.

    Are those certificates really accepted?

    a certificate signed by a veterinary practitioner stating, or to the effect, that the dog is
    of a particular breed
    hmmm, reading the above it is quite possible. Thats very very interesting actually. How many vets would have stated on vaccination certs etc that a dog is an AmStaff based on what the owner has told them. Will have to go check my vacc certs and see if it mentions jacks breed. Nick pickup!
