Wisdom Panel Results now questions for experts

My MIL's dog is considered by the city to be a Pit Bull. It is quite a burden and expense, including fees, additional insurance requirements, required enclosures, signage, etc. to have this dog considered a "vicious breed". He was labeled a Pit Bull by a vet when Dubs caught a bat in the house and the vet reported him to the city as a Pit Bull.

My husband has suspected for a long time that Dubs really wasn't Pit Bull at all, so we had a Wisdom Panel DNA test done.

The results are in and say:

American Staffordshire Terrier
Boxer
Saint Bernard Mix
German Shepherd


Googling "American Staffordshire Terrier vs. Pit Bull", I'm not getting any clear answer. Are they the same breed or not?

I think even if they are the same, interchangeable breed name, we may still be able to get Dubs off the Pit Bull rolls with the city since he is only 25% American Staffordshire Terrier. I believe the law says he must be 50% or more.

Genetically both breeds are from the same dogs but physically they are not the same. Both were bred for different purposes this is why you get different answers. As an example its much like a field vs show dog in bird dogs or working vs show in German Shepards.

Most of this is an opinion as many will differ on this answer.

What is the exact wording in the ordinance as to the definition of a "vicious breed"; and how is that determined, according to the ordinance?

those DNA tests are not really all that accurate but the city will take them as fact. u will only see the AmStaff in results because they use an AKC style version of dogs. AKC does not register the APBT and therefore u will never see "pit bull" in the results field. and altho i do consider the AmStaff and the APBT to be 2 different breeds, the city probably will not.... so bare that in mind.

Those tests even if not accurate can be used by cities and towns To enforce BSL. Such crap when you ask me especially if their law is any percent isn't allowed. With that said some cities and towns consider boxer as pit bull because it's a bully breed so you may have your 50% right there so check your laws and make sure you interpret them before setting yourself up. Is it an all out ban or just restrictions?

How did he catch a bat lmao. Does your pup fly? Hahaha
