Re: Are Pitbull Cross Staff Banned In Uk. Please Help

Sorry Mo didnt mean to copy you hehe.

They probably didnt seize the dog in the sense that the owner doesnt have any permission but they probably were advised that they need to take the dog in for behaioural tests and once it was considered that the dog was a pitbull then they told the owners they need to register the dog.

If the Police believe that your dog is a pit bull type, there is a likelihood that your dog will be seized and will remain in a Police appointed kennel until the case is concluded.
Or until the dog dies of neglect, or is killed by mistake.

That link is dreadful, it makes me well up

Where did you come across it/do you know much info about these kinds of things?

I just don't get how they can determine a dog is of pit bull type, seems like a bloomin' lottery except its a death sentence if you win

I really don't trust the police in the case of animals, most officer's don't even know the difference in breeds. It is so sad though....i feel for all the owners.

Re: Are Pitbull Cross Staff Banned In Uk. Please Help

My friend says someone near her has two pitbull or crosses not sure which, i saw them one day when i was visiting she said he was visited by the police and the dogs had to be registered, microchipped and neutered but they were not destroyed, they also have to remain on a lead and muzzled at all times.

Ive just had some trouble regarding staffy i rescued and rehomed when someone claimed he attacked them, there has abeen a lengthy court battle where the dog was orderd to be put to sleep, the owner was fined and banned from keeping any dog but they appealed and several of us had to give statements to the dogs charachter, thanfully he was spared second time round but ordered to be muzzled and never let off a lead.

saddly therea re always ignorant people who will target these sorts or breeds or corsses, i personally wouldnt go to the police but i think you should consult a vet as one day the dog will need vet treatment/vaccinations etc and what do you do then? better to get a vets view now rather than when its an emergency, plus if she is underweight bad condition etc it carries more weight for you as the vet will see your story is true and if anyone doubts you in the future at least a professional has seen her in the state you got her.

perhaps as caution you should muzzle the dog when out and keep her on a lead at all times, that way no one can ever make any claims against you like was done with the staffy.

Good on you for taking her, i hope it all works out

Re: Are Pitbull Cross Staff Banned In Uk. Please Help

Take your dog to the vet, tell them what you think it is if asked... a staffie cross, and never mention the pit bull bit again...

Put it out of your head, and love your new companion for what it is, a lovely dog

Had you got this dog from a more reputable source say a close friend etc, would it have even crossed your mind to think it was a part Pit?

Re: Are Pitbull Cross Staff Banned In Uk. Please Help

You admit you don't have any knowledge about identifying the dog as a pit so I'd guess it's more likely a staffy cross and you are just putting 2 and 2 together because of where she's come from. There are very few true pit crosses around and a lot of silly little boys who think they are impressing people by telling all and sundry their dogs are 'pitbull's or pitbull crosses' cos they think it makes them look 'hard'.

She a staffy cross and extreamly lucky to have found someone who cares enough to look after her properly. I'd pop her to the vets for a through MOT and mention nothing more about it.

I know the person who owns the website. And I know that for every dog on that page there are dozens more whose tales will never be told. That page is only the tip of a very, very dirty iceberg.

I think that 'lottery' is a very good description of what occurs.

Re: Are Pitbull Cross Staff Banned In Uk. Please Help

Most vets like to keep their clients as that is how they make money and unless this dog is obviously dangerous or used in a dog fighting ring, then I don't think it would be in their best interests to accuse you of having a pit bull or a pit bull cross and to go through all the hassle of court which may ultimately make them lose a client. Unless of course, you bring the subject up. DON'T.

If you live in a small village the chances of it being a pit bull I think would be very slim anyway, no matter how you managed to acquire it.
I would keep quiet about that bit too as that will put you in the firing line and some do-gooder may get your dog seized during the investigations into the dog seller.

I think it is very difficult to pinpoint a pit bull correctly, hence all these sad tales of nice dogs being put down.

As others have said she is a Staffie cross. End of.
