    Hello fellow Dog lovers,
    I rehomed a beautiful dog 2 weeks ago
    they told me she was a purebred bullstaff but she seems to be crossed with another breed,
    They also told me shes 2 but she seems very big for 2.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    I think she might have a bit of a boxer in her she has a very long face

    Ive asked the Mods to move this to dog chat where I hope you will get more opinions.

    I'm confused by the "very big for 2" statement.
    What makes you think she's older?
    At 2 years old, most dogs are pretty much done growing. At 2 years or 12 years, she's going to be more or less her adult size.

    She looks like a typical off standard pet bred staffy type to me.
    She has a lovely face :)

    I dont think she is a pure bred staffie ' We do seem to see more long legged staffies now but I wonder what they were bred with .

    These photos are of staffordshire bull terriers

    Doesn't look pure staff, markings suggest a bit of boxer maybe?

    Ruby looks like what I call "street staffies"... basically non-pedigree bull breed mix ups that are mostly or at least closer to Staffordshire bull terriers than anything else but far from standard.
    They're usually much larger (taller and heavier) than true staffies but sold as staffies anyway
    Basically, she's a bull breed mutt and there is nothing bad about that.
    She's certainly not a pure staffy... they're surprisingly little dogs.
