Yep, that's why they do this.In England and Ireland is BSL.
There is an Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier which depending who you speak to is either an SBT infused with APBT blood or a taller, more athletic SBT with a very similar appearance to an APBT. Then there are those with APBTs who sell them as Irish Staffies because as mama's boy says, they are illegal. Confusion reigns.
The Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier is not a registered breed, it is often used as another name for pitbulls and pitbull crosses so that they can bring and breed them in the uk (since pitbulls have been banned in the U.K since the early 1990's).If you go and talk to anyone over there the only people who call them that are il informed or people that own them.
Any other well informed person call hoax on them and it can actualy turn into a pretty heated debate
