And APBT is taller, slimmer with a narrower head. Do I got it?
Not going into the newer one.
Holly answered this one but if I can make one interjection I'll be happy. When talking about the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, don't drop out the word "Bull". If you do it becomes an Amstaff (AST). Amstaffs are Staffordshire Terriers.

Sorry, that always bugs me.

I think a picture and name of each breed should show up under the random pictures as soon as you login that way everyone new to this site could see and click on it to get detailed information about each one. I think it would educate a lot of new people and could divert a lot of future frustration. There are a lot of people who get upset when they find out that their pitbull is not necessarily a pitbull.

Unlike most breeds, the APBT was bred for an invisible trait of gameness. The wiliness never to quit.

The only way to know if is an APBT is to see the papers, and talk with the owner to know if the dog was from a trustworthy breeder.

They can look bully, like a hound and like a Staffy.
Its whats in side is what counts.
They have the best temperament towards people (as well as cats and other animals if introduced when young) and like blankets and pillows!

Is there a certain age before you can really tell what breed the dog is (APBT, SBT, ST, AST)?

Yep. As soon as you look at the ped. Some people will tell you they can tell 100% which one is which every time but there will always be some overlap in between the breeds. Some are pretty obvious but others aren't so clear.

P.S. ST and AST are the same thing.

I would just like to trow this in here cause this breed gets confused with this group as well.

This big boy here is Mack Truck



Every time I walked him people would say holy cow that's a big pit. He has absloutely no pit in him at all. He is a pure bred American Bulldog. You will be able to tell them from pits as they are much much bigger. Mack was about 130lbs. I do work at the shelter here in town and I have seen quite a few of them labeled as APBT. No APBT or AMStaff will ever be that big.

UKC required 2 wins before the ablility to register an APBT, WHAT HAPPENED? Just cause paper rules change doesn't mean the dog changes, thus the ADBA has maintained the original game bred APBT.
