    took the words out my mouth peppa :p....even the staff could come under type with the wrong arse so called expert. Am staffs in the uk? Mostly poorly bred types called that by peddlers. All that said they look nice dogs and youve not come on selling anything like the last uk prat :D welcome to the forum.

    I know Amstaffs are banned as well I seen the parents when I got him they where very nice dogs the mother was what you in america call an old family red we over her call them red noses there are quite a few people selling pitbulls over her there are always adds for red nose amstaff for sale I took both of mine to the vet to get them micro chipped and I told them what they both were they put them down on the papper work as staffys they said the breeders of both dogs have done a nice job of both puppies .
    It shouldn't be the dog what's banned it should be the owner who gets banned from having dogs they blame the breed it's not the breed but some of the people that have them the dda over here isn't working they should scrap it and put the responseabilty on the owner
    I love my dogs they are a part of my family
    there's idoits over here useing dogs as weapons because the police can't do nothing to them were if they had a nife the ploice would arrest them what what I heard as long as your dog isn't being a nusanice they will leave you alone reguards to amstaff and pitbulls I know a lady who's got an old family red and the dog is stunning
    and there is nothing wrong with Irish staffies they are nice dogs his dad was 19" to the shoulder and weighed 60lb my dog will be the same size the Irish staffies are old time staffies like psycho lines
    cheers ian

    I just hate the term "Irish staffords" Nothing irish about them lol! I have a few dogs bred down from physco and Beanie but dont refer them as irish staffs. It amazes me that most blue dogs are peddled as "irish staffords", Physco line etc They are always big heavy things, 60lb is a big big dog no where near the weights of physco makes me wonder where this size actually comes from. Will be interesting to see how that red pup of yours develops.


    Hi Ian and welcome
    as Matty mentioned the whole irish staff think is controvential, but mostly in UK not in the USA. I do own an Irish Bull Terrier out of Ade's Pup, I like to call him this way since he is registered as such. I do not really care what the different opinions in UK support, I just enjoy him for what he is.
    Out of which dogs your blue one comes from? Anyone I might know from ikc, sibtc etc boards?

    Hi Ian
    Welcome to the forum, beautiful dogs you have there.
    As you know I have stock off of Roger too, this forum has a very tough crowd on it but you will learn lots and theres no fart arsing around. They may come across as rude arrogant and know it alls, but they are actually just very passionate about their dogs and know a lot between them, so dont take anything personally.
    I personally dont use the term "Irish Stafford", never have never will, real dogmen in Ireland actually laugh at the term.
    Matty I personally have never seen an "Irish Stafford" over 55lb (winter weight) except one, but would be interested in seeing the ones you claim are always seen.

    Enjoy the forum Ian, you will learn lots and lets be honest we're all always learning.

    Sorry let me rephrase, i see a lot of blue dogs well into the 50lb mark which is a big dog in my book, having said that i know of a few good blue dogs around, like they say it doesnt matter what colour they are!

    Thanks for the clarification Matty, yes 57-60lbs is too heavy for my liking and i'd be tempted to say that dog yes, is blue in colour but has very little if anything to do with its ancestors. But the blues I have generally come across are 40-42lb fit and 48-50lb winter weight........anything above that and id be dubious about its breeding, personally.
    Ian I think the Sire to your pup, which I saw around 5-6 years ago was around the 43-44lb mark, (unconditioned) I would say your boy wont be very much more than that when he's older. Id be really grateful if you could keep me updated on him, he looks a nice boy, also Roger is the only blue dog breeder I know of that has consciously introduced a healthy out cross into his dogs.
