Hi, my name is Joelle and I'm from Taiwan. I have a male pit bull named Achilles who's a bit over 1 1/2 yrs old. I also have another male dog named Blackie who's 6 yrs old. His breed is called "Formosa Dog", it's only exist here in Taiwan though I heard there are few breeders in USA that import the breed to USA now.
Here are some pics of Achilles:

Hi Joelle! Welcome to the forum!

Where did you get Achilles? Have you had him since he was a pup?

I'm really interested to know about your other dog, he's not a breed I have ever heard of. Do you have any pictures of him?

ParisStreetPitCrew, thank you very much. No, I don't have digital pictures of Blackie. All the pics of him are regular pictures...So I'll have to try to take pics of him later with digi cam.

mnp13, thank you. Yes I've had Achilles since he was a pup. I got him from a breeder..(I know I know...I probably shouldn't have...but there's no way I could adopt a pit bull from shelter as there's no pit bulls in shelters cos pit bulls are not that popular here as they are in USA...) In fact...in the city I live in...Achilles is probably the only pit bull in town...... And for Blackie's pics...please see my answer to ParisStreetPitCrew :P But I could post couple pics of Formosa Dogs that I got online so you guys could have some idea. (Since Blackie is black so I'll just post couple black color Formosa dog's pics. The Formosa Dog's color also comes with yellow, brindle, white "not pure white, more like very light fawn")

Maryellen, thank you. :) And just to clear it up, the 2 pics of the Formosa Dog is not of my dog. :P I don't have pics of my Formosa Dog so I got pics of the breed from internet. :)

mnp13, thank you for "grant" me the access to the board. :D Thank you for edited my posts so the pics show up. I'll remember that next time. :)

Romanwild, thank you. :) I'm glad to join the board. :)

Jesseca, thank you very much. :)

Purple, thank you. :) Yeah, Formosa Dogs are smaller and less hair/less shedding than GSD though. :)

Judy, thank you. :)

panda, thank you very much. :)

chance's mom, thank you very much. :) Really? That's cool. How long was he here? Have you ever been here before with him? Yeah, there are not that many pit bulls here as in USA....which is kind of good I guess cos then there's no pit bull over-population here and no pit bulls in shelters. The only bad thing is I don't get to see many pit bulls when out. :wink:

chance's mom, that's cool. Hahah...cos vietnamese are Asian too and people here probably can't tell and thought he's Taiwanese. :D I have some foreigner friends who can speak only little bit Chinese, and people here would think they can speak real good Chinese cos they heard those foreigners say few Chinese words, and start talking to them in Chinese and talk real fast...lol The night markets here are so good. :D :P If you ever have a chance to come here, you should visit a big night market. :) Right now I'm feeding him Royal Canin, and once in a while I cook him some chicken parts or beef or lamb meat to eat.

annieinpa, thank you. :) The Formosa Dogs are actually smaller than GSD. Formosa Dog males are about 40-50cm tall (don't know what that is in inches), and GSD males are about 55-66cm tall. Formosa Dog males weight about 15kg or so, and GSD males weight about 34~43kg. Formosa Dogs nose part is shorter than GSD. Their hair is way less than GSD. :) I think it's quite different between Formosa Dog and GSD. :)
