Echo staff crack code of banned dog-dealers (Liverpool, England, UK)
 
Echo staff crack code of banned dog-dealers
By HoldtheFrontPage staff

A code used by underworld dog dealers to sell banned breeds like pit bulls in local newspapers has been cracked by the Liverpool Echo.

Code names and terms are used by unscrupulous dealers who sell fighting dogs through newspaper pets for sale columns - disguised as legitimate breeds.

Breeds banned in the UK by the Home Office include pit bulls, dogo Argentino, fila Brasiliero and Japanese tosa - but dealers use code names such as "Irish Stafford" and "American Stafford" to sneak them into classified advertising columns.

It means advertising staff can quickly identify any breeders trying to sell banned breeds or dogs specifically bred for fighting.

Are they they taking the piss or what??? I own a PIt, but i didn`t buy 'specifically' bred for fighting...Agian tar everyone with the same brush, eh?

The reason why they will ban the term 'Irish Staff' is simply because the Irish Staff is very similar to the abpt of yesteryear. Many people (incl myself) use this loophole when stopped by the authorities. Or i say staffy cross. They`re are not many Irish staffies available, of course they are about, but Pits are still more common.

Ignorant people will carry to teach ignorance to other uneducated people.

The thing is geezer, if you know the game, 9/10 times you won`t get your Pit taken away. You have to play the game.

But for me personaly,im not that big on talking about are secrets and ways of dealing with the bsl freaks.There trying to say the isbt is just a way for the people of the uk to have a pitbull by a diffrent name,im saying its time to tell them to screw off and no its not,its a diffrent breed that has existed for over a 100 years....
