As the title says. Just wondering if pitbulls are illegal in s.a. A guy from work bought one and i though he was crazy. but apparently you just register them as a american staffy. Surely a vet would be able to tell the difference???

Yes there is a way to prove it is a pitbull. Hell a staffy and a pitbull have very distinctly different looks and behaviors. Youd have to be a moron not to notice it.

...and I swear to god if I see anyone trying to pass off Pitbulls as Staffys im going to curb stomp them.

Aren't they just variations of bull terriers that used to fight in pits? There is no dividing line on what they look like which can classify the difference between an American Staffy and pitbull.

Behaviours, so two dogs can look identical and if they behave differently are different breeds? the vet will decide by asking whether it wants a carbon tax? you have to be kidding.

I cant understand why anyone would want these ugly and potentially lethal animals as a family pet.

The main issue is that the people who seem to get pitbulls are mainly wankers who can't comprehend that it's their responsibility to train the things properly.

By design, pitbulls are a very powerful unit and can inflict serious damage. Thus why the need an owner to looks after them properly.

This is the case with all dogs. Sure there one or two excpetions were the dog is mentally unstable but usually it's got to do with the owner.

We had a Rottiweiler and people would say it's a dangerous dog. It's dangerous the same way a 1200hp street machine is. It's all about who is in control of it.

Just another case of media spin and public panic.
