    Looks like a Staff to me. They vary a fair amount in looks.

    He does look like a Staffy.

    Did you buy him as a purebred SBT?

    Without paperwork it would be impossible to say if he's full stafford or a mix.

    I think Staffs are so inter/over bred that a non KC reg Staff varies so much in size, stature and build that sometimes it's hard to know.

    He does look staffy to me, they seem to vary quite a bit anyway. Must say that's a great photo he looks a lovely pup and full of character.

    Ah. If he's still thin, that might be why people ask. Staffies are expected to be quite stocky and broad.

    Yeah it could be when he stands up straight can see he's starting to get some muscle now he goes on a little walk twice a day for 10mins unsure if I'm walking him to much at his age seems to like it tho

    At 4 months they can do 20 minutes per day so I'm sure 2 x 10 minute walks would be fine.
