The english lines are ADORABLE!
I think if I were ever to get a lab it would be English line.
They are like a bullier lab, lol.

as for rotties, I've met one with an intact tail and it looked like a muscular black and tan lab so I could see where rottie would mix in.

What doesn't make sense about it?

An american staffordshire is an AKC recognized breed, if your puppies are not registered (really, WHAT responsible breeder would NOT paper there dogs?) with the AKC then the AKC does not recognize them as anything. The akc doesn't know they exist.

Go ahead and contact the amstaff club of america and see what they say about it. My dog is both akc amstaff and ukc/adba APBT. If he were for some reason not registered with the AKC then he would not be an american staffordshire. Most amstaffs are dual or triple registered, but a basic pit bull would not be recognized to the AKC as even existing unless their ENTIRE bloodline was registered amstaff with the akc.

It's just something that's required, it differentiates between the two strains of "pit bull". Working type (ukc/adba) and show type (akc).

That's a good dogfood website, posted above. Try to get the best food you can afford. Kirkland (costco brand) dogfood is pretty good too. I personally never fed my dog puppy food, even when he was a puppy. I'm not exactly sure what the point of puppy food is, I just always fed Diesel high protein high fat food because he's very active and has trouble keeping weight on. shrug

Oh, me too! I'm always on petfinder. Well, mostly looking for dogs for other people. LOL. My feeling is just, I wouldn't personally look for a mix of two dogs so close. If I fell in love with a labXpit bull I would take it home for sure, but i just wouldn't personally look out for one.

Yeah, why do the english style labs look so much like pit mixes? Are they related somewhere in the past?

Why would you purposely search out for a pit bull lab mix? LOL. I think they are so similiar looking that most either look like labs or look like pit bulls. Bonnie Hunt had her pit bull lab mix on the show who actually looked like a pit bull lab mix (it looked like both breeds) but i think that's pretty rare.

That's probably why there's such rift between the two, because they are actually quite similar. I've seen pure bred labs that I swear had pit bull in them. Same with pit bull, if their coat is just slightly longer than it should be they suddenly resemble labs. Especially if their ears flop forward. Lab owners think their dogs are superior because they are "nice" and pit bulls "aren't" (although I've had to muzzle nasty labs in my career and never had to muzzle a pit bull.. HA!). Pit bull owners don't like labs because they consider them to "wimpier" version of the pit bull.

I sometimes question lab owners in my own mind, only because I see the good tempered pit bull as the perfect dog and really see no reason to want a lab when a pit bull is so much better looking. I'm just bias.

Though I have to say that Belgium is really adorable! I love that photo of him with his teeth out.

Also remember, she's still a baby! She's going to be really lanky until about one year old, then she'll fill out. How much she fills out depends on her bloodline too, if she came from lanky parents she will probably be lanky, if her parents are muscular chances are she'll be muscular. Although female pit bulls have a reputation for being smaller than males, I've seen larger one's. Again, depends on her bloodline. Just be lucky you have what looks to be a pure bred pit bull and not some large headed freaky one. Trust me, they only make men look like they are trying to compensate for something they're missing, if you know what I mean. True pit bull lovers and owners laugh at such a thing. You look much better owning a proportioned pit bull, no matter what the size. My dog is larger, but proportioned, so he looks good. way to go

Also, i hope you intend on fixing her. There are enough pit bulls in this world already, not much money to be made with them. I know plenty of people who have had pit bull puppies and can't GIVE them away! Just contact a spca and they'll fix her for you, usually free or low cost. It will make her healthier and live longer.

To answer your question, I feed my pit bull Blue Buffalo Blue Wilderness dry with DVP Natural Balance sausage dogfood grated on top. I stick to all natural everything, no by products. It costs more, but you feed less and your dog is healthier from it so i think it's worth it. Also, high quality food has high quality protein to put muscle on your dog. Cheap food has corn and crap that will cause skin problems which then will cost you money to treat. Better to prevent.

American Pit Bull Terrier > I'm confused -Pit or Stafordshire?

Hi, no I don't show him. He was actually a rescue, but he was originally purchased to be a show amstaff. The standard for both APBTs and amstaffs are incredibly underestimated. I've never been to an APBT show, but with the amstaffs they are way larger in show than the standard says they "should" be. They are almost always about Diesel's size at Westminster and they are the top amstaffs in the country.

Hershey, before you continue insulting my dog with talk about him being an american bully please go do some research. Cloverhill and royal court are two of the top amstaff bloodlines there are, they DO NOT mix their dogs with anything. An "amstaff X APBT" does not exist. An amstaff IS an akc APBT, Amstaffs are usually dual or triple registered. AKC american staffordshire, UKC APBT, and ADBA APBT. How does that make them mixed, if they are known as two different breeds by different registries? An american bully is usually a pit bull mixed with mastiff (of some sort) and then mixed back with english or olde english bulldog. And how I do realize that there are "breeders" breeding blue right now on purpose, it does not mean every dog that is blue was bred such. There are even blue labs popping up now and then.
