Default Ok is he an Am staff (American Staffordshire Terrier) I was told he wasn't.

Hello, this my son he needs a home by the way. However, I have asked and people told me he isn't an am staff due to his head is to big or he is to muscular. I thought he was an American Staffordshire Terrier. I know my breed. I have a video of him if needed.





Thank you

Could be an Am. Staff, could be an APBT, could be an American bully, could be a pit bull mix of some sort. But yes, definitely some type of bully breed. I would assume a shelter/rescue may call him an Am staff as opposed to pit bull either because people are less scared by that name or because his head is so broad. People often think Am Staffs have bigger heads and a stockier body than APBTs but there is such a huge variety in pit bulls you can't say that for sure.

He looks like an American Bully to me, not an Amstaff.

I'm assuming he's at a shelter? Like Maxy24 said, lots of shelters are starting to call your generic "Bully breed" Amstaffs because the general public aren't as scared away by the name (most people have no clue what an Amstaff is to begin with). If he's a shelter dog that doesn't have papers or a known pedigree, I wouldn't refer to him as an Amstaff.

My boys are Amstaffs (with known pedigrees), just to show you:

No, he isn't in a shelter he is at my job. He was abandon. However, I thought American Bully also but the American Bully's I have seen are more muscular & have a shorter snout/muzzle then he does. I am also asking this due to in a few months to a year I want one just like him. He isn't to muscular not that short of a snout/muzzle he doesn't have the breathing issues like the American Bully.



He also looks like a shelter dog where I use to work at name Ears. His ears are cropped Dallas isn't

Ears' ears are not cropped. They're just erect.

I would call the original boy an american bully. There are many lines and "types", not just the one you posted.
