I even know of one, owned by someone I know, who became a champion (after extensive showing, for about 5 years). He is BARELY recognizable as an amstaf! He looks like a GIANT staffybull with too big of a head, too short/thick of a neck, weak back, straight shoulders/rear, flat feet, and about as much drive as a bucket. Its a shame.
I just cant wast my money showing Vega against these dogs up here (I prefer to spend it on agility entries). She is so different from them I would be really insulted to have any of those dogs get put up over her. And the politics... dont make me go there!
