    I’ve recently bought a staffy she’s currently 11 weeks old she was sold as a full staffy but her legs seems quite long for her age and people have been saying she’s either an amstaff or amercian bully staffy mix does anybody know what mix she is or if she’s a full English staffy please I’ve posted a photo of mum and dad as well

    Is she KC registered? Were the dam and sire? If so, what does the KC registry say?

    She’s very cute :) Without papers it’s impossible to know whether she’s ‘full staffy’ or not. She certainly has a good dollop of staffy, but there may well be something else in there somewhere down the line, or she may just be a staffy that hasn't been bred from dogs that meet the standard.

    She looks Staffy enough to me ;)

    I would just say she’s a Staffy if anyone asks and be done with it.

    Is it genetically possible to have a tricolour pup produced from those parents?

    Non KC staffs are everywhere and vary wildly from the standard, probably due to being mixed back somewhere down the line as well as carefree breeding. Mum and dad definitely look like this type. With the risk of BSL, you are probably safest just calling her a staff or staff x without getting to much into things :)

    Was she sold as full staffy though? Did the advert not have her listed as "xxl x staff bull"?

    Both parents would have to carry the tri gene.

    The advert said that yes but when we went to view them they said they was full staffy as none of the two seem like American Bullys to me ?

    American bullies dont have a strict standard either, especially not in the uk. Them and the wonky off standard staffies everywhere tend to just look like generic bull breed types... which the parents do look like to me.
    She was listed as a cross and she doesnt have any papers. She's a staff cross :)

    Does it make a difference to your plans for her?

    Hang on so you went to view xxl American bully puppies but then brought one because they told you it was a Staffy and now you think she might not be a 'true' Staffy o_O

    No it doesn’t affect my plans with her I’m quite relived you’ve said she’s a possible mix of American bully and staff as I was concerned she was an amstaff which is banned in the uk

    She could still potentially be seen as type, as BSL goes on mostly measurements rather than checking any DNA or similar. Make sure she grows up to be a perfect citizen and stays out of trouble, and hopefully you'll both be just fine!

    No before I reserved her I asked about that and they said she was so I was obviously confused but I’m not bothered if she isn’t a full staffy I just want to know the mix as some people have been saying she’s an amstaff which isn’t banned

    I'm confused as in one of your cropped pictures in the first post looks like it says possibly says Pit Bull, definitely says 't bull' and now you are worried about it being a 'banned breed'

    I thought exactly that; that's what sent me off investigating in the first place!
    The 't' is the last 'f' in 'staff bull' from the listing titled "Xxl x staff bull puppies" :)
    So still mixes that could fall foul of the law, especially without any papers proving otherwise

    It says xl x staffy on the post not pitbull I wouldn’t intentionally buy a banned breed and she may not even be one I just wanted to know what mix as some say American bully x staffy and then others call her an amstaff which is banned
