    he is still quite young at 14 mth , so i wouldnt worry to much, some staffords dont stop filling out till they are 2 - 2.5yrs old. as for what shape he is in how quick does he tire? he looks ok from the pics tthough, nice looking boy, how is he bred ?

    Im waiting for papers , I have purchased him from a distant family member , he is pure bred staff but he is guite abit bigger than most full grown SBT's we see around our area already, he is 18inches to the withers, could he be amstaff and they have been confused? Does he look SBT,or possibly APBT? Thanks.

    Nah mate I live in uk, this is why it is a big concern, I love AST's and APBT's and would love to own them but dont want the hastle of owning a banned dog, so hopefully SBT is correct as I recieve negative comment and bad looks from ignorant uneducated people I see out and about who know nothing about pitbull type breeds and believe everything they see in the papers/news etc. Are AST's even listed as banned dogs in the uk? I think this country classes AST's and APBT's as the same breed and therefore both are seen as "dangerous" (pathetic).Thanks for your replys mate

    The current standard for SBTs was changed. The standard used to call for bigger dogs so it's only natural that there are bigger dogs. My SBT is about 18" and 42 lbs. IMO the game-bred APBT is how all the dogs looked like 130 years ago.

    Yup, the old style working Staffies are nowhere near as heavy as the show dogs, plenty of Terrier in them. When I left the UK Staffies were getting bigger & bigger to the point some looked & moved more like Bulldogs.

    Hi,
    Very nice Stafford you have there.

    I agree Sandi with above statement.x
