In the ACT and also the Northern Territory, we dont have BSL, we have a dangerous dog act which applies to all dogs, not a specific breed, so they can be advertised and sold and also given away in NT.
It's common sense, hopefully the rest of the states will come to there senses.
You beat me to it Anomad! I was about to say that in the ACT they are just like any other dog.
I met a gorgeous one today at a vet clinic - sitting in reception keeping staff company while waiting for his owner. He has three legs and is a beautiful boy indeed - red nose, light eyes etc - all the things people seem to be wary of. He was getting big squashy hugs from eveyone around, and his tail didn't stop wagging the whole time.
A whole lotta dog, but what a great character and big heart!!
well i have belgian shepherds, and what got me into the breed .
i was given a longhair shepherd and what i was told belgian . so i searched on the internet, to find she was purebred. she died 6 mth later to a fit when we were moving i miss her dearly.
but i always liked the longahir german shpherds after viewing them . felt they werent the dog for me . then after viewing the belgian fell in love , i like longahir dogs ,i wanted a dog that would play ball , love to swim in the water, and guard if nesseriary and they do it all , and best of all love human attention and look good .
but one day , i would like a newfoundland , as after finding this sites and doing more research i think newfoundland would suit my family very well as they are very gentle, one day!!
hey! Im an untrained eye when it comes to breed standards and stuff, and I havent had anyexperience with amstaffs.gawd. dont get nippy.
Well, in my life, I have experienced ALOT of dogs.
The dog I grew up with, was a Rottweiler. His name was Kiezer.
He lived till about 13yrs old and we ahd him put down in 2006, as it was cruel to let him live on with pain. BEST DOG EVER!
Extreme guard dog, but GENTLE guard dog. He was a BEAUTIFUL dog, gorgeous in every way possible with a big heart full of love and comfort. He LOVED children and puppies, when we got Boof he would snuggle him endlessly.
His HUGE photograph-in-frame takes place in my bedroom. RIP beautiful Kiezer.
We got Boof (Mastif-mixture) when Kiezer was still alive. Boof was such a character. We chose him because he leapt forwards and gave a growl when we were looking at the pups, we thought it was good quality for a guard dog. He is our grumpy-old-dopey-man. Such a SOOKY sweetheart, but EXCELLENT guard dog.
We got Bindi, several years ago. A Jack-Russel. GORGEOUS girl. Died young, my nanna was driving up our driveway and Bindi ran straight towards the car - Nanny tried to stop but she accidently did accellerate.
Mum woke me up and told me Bindi was gone. I cant believe how bad it would have been for Nanny. Bindi's HUGE photo also takes place on my wall.
THEN we fostered a SBT! We named him Stanely and we were looking after him while his owners were moving house. BEAUTIFUL dog, great nature and absolutely DOPEY-GORGEOUS eyes!
Then we have Mollie I chose her becauise of the extreme bond that was shared between us. She is a beautiful dog of which I love and adore very much.
As you can, see there have been alot of great dogs in my life.
Dogs give us love, guidance and loyalty, but when they are gone, they leave a gaping hole in your heart.
RIP to those of which have passed. xx

and i thought we were talking about pitbulls not amstaffs. or are the the same??
Both Amstaffs and Pitbulls share the same origins Boxerini. But Amstaffs have been developed as per their recognised standard, whereas Pitbulls don't have an official standard due to not being formally recognised.
So in very simple terms, the Amstaff is the legal version of the Pitbull in Australia.
But if an Amstaff is not registered with the Australian National Kennel Council it can be classified as a Pitbull for the purpose of breed restrictions.
