Amstaff isnt listed, but it says:

Quote:
2. Banned dogs

In the UK, itís against the law to own certain types of dog. These are the:

Pit Bull Terrier
Japanese Tosa
Dogo Argentino
Fila Braziliero

Itís also against the law to:

sell
abandon
give away
breed from

a banned dog.

Whether your dog is a banned type depends on what it looks like, rather than its breed or name.

Example If your dog matches many of the characteristics of a Pit Bull Terrier, it may be a banned type.
So if your dog, "looks" like a pit bull. Its banned. Wow. How crazy is that?

Well, it seems they can take half the dogs under the sun if they only have to "look" like a pitbull.
