Thread: What Mix breed is my Dog!?

    Default What Mix breed is my Dog!?

    Hey guys! new to this forum,

    I would just really like to know what breed my puppy actually is, he is kind of a rescue dog and the person we got him off said he was an amstaff puppy, but clearly he is mixed as he doesn't have some features as an amstaff.
    He has pretty long legs, and he isnt as stocky looking, he's quite lean.
    here's a few pics of him, his name is Bowser

    Looks a lot like this one only puppy sized. Don't mind the ears - they like to cut them off in the USA.

    Is your puppy desexed already - cos that can make them a bit longer legged and narrow in the head. But otherwise he looks like a bully breed mix to me. Bully breeds being - Bull terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, american bull dog, american staffordshire terrier...

    If you didn't get papers - he's a mix - love him for what he is and make sure he knows other dogs are friendly when you greet them politely.

    He's not desexed as of yet, the vet said we should wait till he is 6 months of age.
    I don't really care what he is, it's more of a curiosity thing haha he's the best dog, has the best nature, seems to love EVERYBODY, dogs and humans. Although he is a bit of a struggle to walk on the lead as he pulls. But other than that he's pretty good.
    But yeah as for the papers, we didn't get them as I'm pretty sure the owners were a bit dodgy sadly, we got him for free off a previous owner (owner after the people that bred him) and they were just gunna put him in a shelter (I'm not sure what happened to his brothers and sisters). The poor darling we are his 3rd owner already from 10 weeks

    a bit of a struggle to walk on the lead as he pulls.
    This is going to take a little bit of training and persistence from you...

    The main thing to remember is every step he makes while pulling - rewards and encourages the pulling.

    The way I deal with it is to stop - ie dog pulls, dog goes nowhere until dog stops pulling. If dog stays close to me - dog gets treats from time to time (treat delivered to heel position next to me).

    try some of the methods on the kikopup youtube channel - should help a bit.

    Hi Anjovucic, you have a gorgeous puppy!

    Definitely bully breed. Amstaff colouring.

    This breed can be a loving, loyal member of a family I believe, IF given the correct upbringing, training and socialisation with absolutely everything you can possibly expose your puppy to in a positive way.

    This breed/mix requires a lot of love and reassurance, but with firm boundaries. It is vitally important your puppy becomes a Good Canine Citizen, so that your experiences and those of everyone else you come into contact with your dog, are positive ones. This breed has a reputation which has created a lot of controversy. I know, I owned one.

    Have you trained a puppy before? There are wonderful people on this forum who can point you in the right direction if you need it, don't be afraid to ask.

    Wishing you lots of fun times ahead!

    Forgot to add, just my thought, de-sex Bowser as early as possible, it helped my male rescue amstaff settle down so much.
