It is illegal...BUT you can get away with it by calling it a long legged staff, as long as your bringing it up right you shouldnt have a problem with it.
Any dog can bite its how there brought up I bought a cross staff puppy from kennels have been told he looks like cross staff pit bull he is like a baby 19 months old and has never growled or gone for another dog they go for him the little ones r the worse
My vet said that you can put them on the dangerous dogs act, but then it has to be kept on a lead and have a muzzle on when it's in public. I think you just have to make sure they're well trained and loved, that way they have the best personalities!
It is illegal to own any sort of pitbull.
