    I don't think the OP was implying the dog really DOES have lock jaw.

    Katey Charm

    Anything that is American Staffy x - is usually called a "pit bull" by most councils, and with Pit Bull comes the Breed Specific Legislation which means - wearing a muzzle in public among other irritating restrictions. So I usually tell people who tell me they have AMstaff x - to tell people they have AmStaff and not to mention the x.

    Frosty is the first dog I've had who can break up a beef marrow bone into splinters. But she will give it to me if I ask her to. When she was a small puppy - and got hold of something I wanted her to let go of - I pushed her own lip over her teeth using her lip to protect my fingers, so she would always let go. I wouldn't do this in the middle of a dog fight but when it's just me, my ugg boot and the puppy, it works for me. And the cue word is "leave it".

    I can reach down her throat and pull out possum poo too. I suspect she's just quite generous in nature to let me do this to her but I usually make sure I have finger over the lip over the teeth - just in case.

    It's important to let her know that putting mouth on humans is not acceptable, and there are various ways of doing this so she stays gentle and doesn't frighten people by putting her mouth on them.

    JTBNTD got almost the same welcome from me as she gave to Katey Charm - it's important for owners of these dogs to know what they're in for no matter how stupid the law is, so they can protect their dog. And it's unfortunate that the person who sold the dog to Katey Charm - didn't make her aware of the law they're breaking by breeding "pit bulls" in the first place. It's rotten. The puppies with the right socialisation and responsible owners can be gorgeous. But the breeders don't care.

    I did do some research, most of this i already knew but i thought i would further my knowledge...in Western Australia, Restricted dog breeds are;
    Dogo Argentino
    Fila Brasileiro
    Japanese tosa
    Perro de Presa Canario
    American pit bull terrier or pit bull terrier

    In Western Australia an American Staffy is not restricted. any dogs that are restricted, the owners must say on the advert if they are advertising a dog in the paper (this is where i bought my dog from) all these adverts are checked. if they give false information they are fined.

    also most of the time when the dog goes to the vet they will be deemed a restricted breed if they are so...then rules, regulations, letting council know etc. all must be followed.

    Therfore an American Staffy is not a restricted breed in Western Australia (even tho she is a cross with a lab, still not consider restricted as she contains none of the restricted breeds)

    Thank you everyone for your help.
