G'day ladies and gentlemen,
Let me start by filling you in on the scenario:
My fiance and I have decided to take the plunge and start our family by finding ourselves a beautiful AmStaff. Now, here is where it gets interesting - Towards the end of the year (say, late December) we're moving interstate although currently residing at my parents house until moving day, where my mother has 3 cats and a small dog (Pom x Shitz), all of which get on terribly well. I'm thinking that is this an ideal environment to introduce the new puppy too - cats, other dogs, lots of people (and of course accompanied along side puppy preschool and obedience training). But I'm a little worried due to the Amstaff background (please, correct me if I'm wrong - that's why I'm here asking for guidance!), I've both read and heard that they tend to have trouble with other dogs and small fluffy things i.e my mothers cats and dog.
I've done my research on the breed itself and the impact the bloodlines have, it's upbringing, how it interacts with the litter and how mum and dad were raised/treated
I'm after any advice or guidance on whether or not we'll be fine to introduce a new Amstaff puppy to resident cats/dogs and even if raised with other fluffies.
If I ever turn my back will it take after the cats and/or other dog?
Thanks for your time guys, please don't hesitate to comment or ask further questions!
