Had a thread asking about various bully breeds for a friend but dropped it due to the legislation stating that anything that looks like a pit bull can be subject to the BSL. I was watching some schutzhund video and this one AB caught my eye and I started getting interested in them. Checked out the pet FAQs in the city of Ottawa site and found out that registered purebreds won't be looked at as one of the banned breeds. It looks like the breed attracts a lot of people who think owning the breed makes them look tough and name their dogs things like ORIGINAL GANGSTA and ICE COLD etc. and information seems to be limited. I've read they excel in schutzhund so they must have pretty good natural obedience and the other skills needed in the sport, after all they were used as an all purpose farm dog. I'm interested in the standard/performance or scott type, they resemble a larger leggy pit bull, but every breeder I find breeds hybrid lines that look more like English bulldogs Sorry, kind of ranting, but to sum it up - if anybody knows any standard/performance type breeders in the Toronto area of Ontario (preferably, but anything in N.America is worth looking at) that I could check out I would be grateful. Also, if anybody has some information about the standard/performance lines I'd be glad to hear it. And, for those who don't know I'm going to be getting a puppy sometime during the summer, and now I'm tore between the AB and the GSD. Except I've already found a GSD breeder I like and is only an hour away lol.
