Many claim that Amstaff is a fighting dog. 

This is NOT correct. Unfortunately, dogs have been (and are) used in dog fights some places, but it has NEVER been the intetion of the founders of the  breed.

Amstaff has been bred FROM previous fighting-dogs at the beginning of 1900. Amstaff has been bred exclusively for show and as a family pet since 1936. Therefore a true Amstaff is not a good guarding dog or fighting dog. It is too kind and loving, and does not have what it takes.

Due to the great popularity of the breed Amstaff, some breed dogs only for profit not considering the physical and mental state of the dogs. it is these dogs that cause problems in many countries. Pure bred Amstaffs is not to blame.

The problems cited by media is therefore probably not at dog problem, but in fact a dog-owner problem.

If you have an Amstaff it is your responsibility to be a good representative for the breed
