Thread: Amstaff X - Logan City

  1. #1

    Default Amstaff X - Logan City

    Hi All,

    I recently bought an Amstaff X puppy she is now 15 weeks old. I am based in Logan City, QLD. Obviously my biggest worry is that I will register her as an Amstaff X and they will show up and classify her as a Pit Bull and take her away. Does anyone on here live in the local area and have any experience with this or have in the past lived locally and had any experience? Let me know. Thanks.

    We have a member called ChoppaChop who owns some gorgeous Pits, and im 90% sure she lives in QLD. Hopefully she can come on soon and help you out.

    Im no expert on BSL, but I don't think your pup can be taken away, just declared restricted and you'll have to follow the BSL laws, but I could be wrong.

    Your pup is amazingly beautiful btw. She's gonna be a looker when she's an adult!
    Have you ever owned a Pit/Amstaff before?

    Thanks myf7.
    No I haven't had Pitties/Staff before, only my other gorgeous girl in the pic up there Keira who is Bullmastiff crossed with pretty much everything LOL. But I have fantastic trainers that I work with from Urban Dog Training in Brisbane, they are really great very informative and helpful and even provide Puppy and Adolescent play groups on weekends to help socialise dogs so Phoenix has been attending these and having a ball.

    She is a lovely natured dog and is doing really well with her training. I will continue to work with Urban Dog training for the next 12 months at least, Phoenix is booked in for at least 6 courses over that time and will continue to attend Play group to make sure she is properly socialized. But any tips on training etc are more than welcome!!

    Hopefully your right and ChoppaChop will be able to help me out!

    Hey there guys

    Keira & Phoenix you have a lovely pup there!There are a few precautions you can take to ensure her safety but I think it better if I PM them

    However if in the meantime if you are pulled up by a Ranger , dont,I repeat DONT let them take your dog. let them quote all of the councils little bully tactics etc but they are not allowed to just take your dog.

    Council officers occasionally have cause to seize and impound dogs which present an unacceptable risk to the community due to the aggressive nature of the dogs or if a suitable enclosure to contain the dog does not exist.

    The Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 provides Council with the power to effect a dog seizure. In these cases, notice will be served on the dog's owner, providing an appeal process, should Council intend to destroy a dog.



    Remember though that those laws are for dangerous dogs,well those declared dangers.
    These are the laws for the restricted breeds

    The following breeds of dogs not registered with Council on or before 30 March 2001 are prohibited from being kept in Logan City.

    * American Pit Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier types or cross breeds of an American Pit Bull Terrier
    * Dogo Argentino or cross breeds of a Dogo Argentino
    * Fila Brasileiro or cross breeds of a Fila Brasileiro
    * Japanese Tosa or cross breeds of a Japanese Tosa
    * Perro de Presa Canario or Presa Canario or cross breeds of a Perro de Presa Canario or Presa Canario

    Hi Choppa
    Thanks she is gorgeous inside and out. Also thanks for the tips and I would very much appreciate it if you could PM that other info on what precautions to take just in case. I was worried that if I register her as Amstaff X they might come a looking and decide she is Pittie and take her, I dont want to draw any undue attention.

    Thanks again!

    It sounds like you're being very responsible!

    I hope you stick around so we can watch little Phoenix grow up and find out some more about Keira!

    I am trying! All I want for my girls is to have a good life and I know that they can't unless I give them the proper socialization and training.

    Yeah, I will be sticking around its great to find a place full of like minded people who care so much for their dogs and all dogs!

    I will have to introduce myself elsewhere and tell you all about Keira and Phoenix!

    im just going to throw my 2cents in please dont hurt me, just a warning im sorry but i know many people who work in shelters and as rangers who would immediately label that as a pitty. i dont believe that but i know many many many who would. so just be very very careful i love the breed and hate the BSL and i would hate to see such a gorgeous face disappear .... hate to bring the thread down, sorry.

    all the best though

    Hi Kaz,

    No worries that is exactly my thoughts and the reason I am concerned because I have seen pics of Pitt puppies that look almost identical to her and as she grows I am sure that won't change. Hence the reason I'm wary of registering her and drawing attention to her. I guess it's just a case of being super careful. Hopefully when Choppa gets back on she can PM me some precautions to take.
