would you own one?

Would you consider one instead of a staffie or as well as a staffie or not at all?

I've worked with several PBs and think they are great. What I like about them is their fairly narrow behavioural range, typically they don't get over excited or overly fearful, they are fairly balanced dogs, which makes them easy to work with. (this ease of trainability is also their downfall in the wrong hands though).

My brother lives in Kansas USA and he says every other dog there is a Pittie, they are very very popular breed out there.

Also, if Mizzie is a typical American Stafford, I'd take another in a heartbeat!

I would.

The ones I have met have been adorable and as Adam says not so excitable.

The only time I have seen them is laying down in a pub being fussed, outside a pub watching the world go by and outside a cafe sitting down being fussed.

I don't now much about pit bulls to be honest but I love the look of them and I have heard they have similar temperaments to staffies. Yeah I'd probably own one.

It's a tough one to answer really, mainly because of how the kennel club registered dogs.
Plus breeds were only defined by the KCs after the breed had actually been established.
But...
Louis Colby has a good claim to have the oldest registered pitbul bloodline, (Colby Pitbulls) and he started his line with dogs imported from England and Ireland in 1881. These dogs were later registered as Staffordshires, which gives a clue as to what sort of dogs he was imported. What those dogs actually were like and looked like I'm not so sure about. Doubtful they would be too similar to todays soft staffies!

But, Colby was only one breeder and only produce a tiny amount of the pitbulls in America, so was he trying to improve a breed already present in America when he started his program.
I still think a generic utility working type dog (unregistered to any fancy upper class kennel club) existed in the US before 1881 and was built similar to todays athletic pitbull type. I imagine the same thing was reflected in England.

Well i love both staffies and pitbulls equally, so if pitbulls were legal over here i would most certainly love to own one aswell as my staffies.
