Seen this not once., apbt growing up with a dog or dogs , from 8 weeks old. Everything OK until dog mature and injured/killed dog what he was growing up... Pits are for Dogmen , if you looking for a challenge trust me you can still have that with Ast, Ab or other bullbreed... Socialisation and training don't take out from dog what he was breed for. Seriously find some blue petbull or other bull terrier.

pacanto u asked could you rear an apbt dog in a pack and the answer is no ..i had a dog a couple of years ago a pure pet well mannered she was not very driven or high sprung dog compared to the way the normally are she was a lazy shit..she was brought up with my staffy from a young age the got on great ..one day the killed each other from a lazy undriven dog she exploded with the click of a finger and made mince meet of my staffy who was a big well excercised dog and more than capable of defending himself .. I learned a valuable lesson that day but take the advice given ..if u want to own an apbt go ahead but build a pen bring it up around the other dogs and keep the pit seperate when your not around to supervise but dont think it wont have a go and especially with shepard a breed that would have dominant traits also..also i dont think mant people on this site are small man syndrome pitbull owners usually them owners have no knowledge of the breed and should not own a goldfish never mind a bit

if you have already bought an APBT stick up a ped , the color of a dogs nose is irrelevant and is usually a ploy by peddlers to make a dog sound more appealing to gillies , i doubt this whole thread is anything more than a troll at this stage

Its a trusted publication.Dogs dont come from farms in Holland.The majority of pups of all breeds come from individual breeders.They advertise what they sell on Markplaats.Its far removed from done deal.People sell Dutch Shepherds and Mals that are of KNPV standard.I've lived in Holland nearly 7 years.One thing they arent is dishonest.If someone has a Bully they sell it as a Bully.If someone has a German Shepherd they sell you a German Shepherd.If they have papers they tell you.If they don't have papers they tell you.
I went and looked at bluenose Staffs today in Cork,advertised on Gumtree I think.
What point are you trying to make?
I'm here looking for advice on certain breeds of dogs,I'm not here to be bitten by keyboard warriors like you.
if your looking for advice on the APBT then take it, its been giving to you. APBT's can be fine with other dogs under supervision but left unsupervised or kennelled with another dog is a bad idea. it only takes a toy that the two dogs want and it could kick of or a hot day and another dog to annoy him and many other everyday things. they might get on fine for a couple of years but when an APBT reaches 2 years of age that's when his dominance starts to show I saw it with my dog and my bitch is starting to show her dominance now to. I have 5 dogs 2 APBT's and 3 lurchers and they get on fine but they are never left alone together because im not so naïve to think that my pit bull wont fight. gameness is a trait these dogs were bred for for hundreds of years and are still been bred for because it makes for a steady confidant dog who is good with people and anyone thinking of getting an APBT has to appreciate that they are game dogs and they will fight.

Egan,I dont claim to know everything but one thing I do know is proper socialisation and proper training makes any dog of any breed putty in your hands.I can see why most people on this site have APBTs.Its worse than a Schutshund club.Small man syndrome,bar one or two here who know what they are on about.
Hands up who says my dog loves to bite!!?

Hands up! two of my pitbulls hate all dogs and one of my amstaffs would start a fight in a room on her own
the other dogs can tolerate some dogs in controlled situations, but they can NEVER be trusted with other animals FACT!!!
Yet ALL my dogs are human friendly.
NO amount of socialization can completely change the instincts of an animal bred for a specific purpose, the instincts are always there beneath the surface
This debate has been done thousands of times, NURTURE vs NATURE

you asked which breed to choose, amstaff or ambull
go with amstaff, great family pet and a very good chance it will be ok with other dogs in controlled situations, BUT remember , they can be dog aggressive, it may or may not become an issue when said dog reaches maturity

and when anyone who knows ANYTHING about apbt's, the LAST thing they will do is advertise a pup as blue nose or red nose, thats normally a RED FLAG to everyone that the person selling said pup hasn't got a clue!
