Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
Just wondering if anyone has had personal experience with owning both breeds and can tell me the differences/similarities of the two?
I know what the difference between the two breeds (same or seperate breeds is only a matter of opinion and not my question) but I've only ever owned or been around pits and not amstaffs and I am looking at getting a second dog in the next 1 to 2 years (can't rush these things) and would love another pitty but don't know wether i want to risk it with all the bsl hysteria going on in australia at the moment.
main question is do amstaffs have the same disposition towards children? are they as caring and protective towards children as pits?
any other info or stories/experiences are also very welcome.
also, I have looked at alot of breeder websites and most seem to be breeding bigger bulkier dogs, which is against my preferences, does anyone know any breeders that emphasize a more athletic type of dog?
