    Some appear to have a lot of APBT in them just judging buy the longer muzzle and narrower build. I like staffordshire bull terriers good looking little dogs.

    Lets face it most of the dog breeds have been completely ruined due to breeding for a certain ''look'' I would say most breeds were way farther ahead in almost all aspects 150 years ago. Show rings should start using 150 year old standards instead of the traits they look for now. Look at today's English bull dog for example and look at the ones you posted from that dog show from 1861 both have short muzzles and under bite but one was a very functional dog and the other can hardly breath. Not to pick on or knock English bull dogs for I still like them but after seeing what they were at one time there is know comparison.

    Dogs that fit the APBT standard get put to sleep here in the UK. These are all dogs that are available for adoption in the UK from £40 upwards on the pets4homes sites where American Bullies are for sale for £2,000.

    So what do you think would be mixed with them to make them to have APBT traits or is it just breeding not to a show standard or look?

    Just cross breed mutts, not bred to any standard. Once the ban came in back in 1991 people tried to recreate the dogs. Most are one dog household and that's why they struggle to be re-homed. Most rescue nuts have a bunch of dogs which doesn't suit a dog aggressive or selective dog.

    No matter what if these mixed breed mutts kill or maim someone they will undoubtedly by a Pitbull. The DDA was a bad move as it stigmatised the breed and made it desirable for wanna be gangsters and such....

    Punish the owners not the breed, I wouldn't trust some of these idiots to own a goldfish let alone a Bulldog...
