Anyone know of good breeders in Ireland?
Always interested in owning this particular breed have two staffies in the parents house since a child, but moving out soon and would like to get an AmStaff to keep me company

I'm not sure about AmStaff's but the rescues always have loads of staffs looking for new homes.

We got ours from www.dogsindistress.org. You could also try the dspca or egar.org.

Can't recommend a breeder for you but plenty of gorgeous bull breeds in rescue around the country crying out for a home with an experienced owner such as yourself. Have a look maybe?

Out of interest do the dspca not rehome bull breeds? I thought an AmStaff was a variation of an English staffy, but just bred to be larger over in the States.

Sorry, but the Am Staff is not a pitbull, its an Am Staff Terrier, a pitbull is a different breed so dont confuse them.

It's really quite simple. APBT and AmStaff once started off as the same "type" then called Bull and Terrier. Over the years two strains emerged: show and working. In the US both "breeds" are still dually registered as BOTH.

The dogs on that website all have their ears cropped
Is that even legal in Ireland? It seems really cruel to me.

Afaik all those dogs that are cropped were brought in from abroad where cropping is legal.
If there are pups born in ireland they will not be cropped as its illegal in Ireland.
