One of the breeds that I dream to own; but was banned here because it was apparently deemed too vicious.

Dear CP,
Have you ever thought of keeping Staffordford Bull Terriers?
These are a wonderful breed and very trustworthy especially with children.
I have owned 2 and they are such a pleasure to have around you.
The most loyal and trustworthy of friends.
In England they have a long history and are a stable and established breed.
As with any breed the problem is with the owners and not the dogs.
Best regards
Craig

Dear Craig,

I have yet to own a dog. biggrin.gif I always believe that you will need to have ample space for the dog to run around, unleashed, so living in an apartment in Singapore is not possible.Here, all dogs must be leashed when brought out of home.

Many breeds are banned here, such as pit bulls, rottweilers, bullmastiffs etc.And, the gov. disallows dogs above certain sizes to be kept in apartment.

Of the breeds that are allowed in apartments, I guess my next choice is a miniature bull terrier.

It is a shame for these animals. Here in the USA, they are not recognized as a breed under the AKC (American Kennel Club). With the lack of an AKC conformation standard; many if not most are bred without health screening, temperament testing, etc. It seems that the majority of the ones that we read about in the media came from an abusive situation--which is certainly not the fault of the dog. They also seem to many times be a product of the BYB (Back Yard Breeder) or Puppy Mills.

That said, as some are NOT beginner fish--this is not a beginner's dog. A fish is contained and damage is basically contained. Such is not the case with a dog. One needs to be a capable, experienced trainer and to understand the ALL the requirements. Of course, this goes as well for any animal of any species.

Many attacks occur outside of the family situation which would be the normal instinct of the dog protecting its family--something that is pure instinct and generally a desireable characteristic. However; when that crosses over into any type of biting, attack, or mauling--not desireable.

Wishing you all the best for your future dog purchase. Research the breed and breeder carefully and make an informed decision. Ask lots of questions. Be sure that breeder completes the required health testing on both parent appropriate that breed and that they breed to the recognized standard for that breed in your country. Dogs add so much to our lives and truly are wonderful companions.

Best,
