    Ive always loved the look of this breed whenever I've seen it outside. It's not ugly like a british bulldog- but seems to be related to it... like a mix between a bull terrier and a british bulldog

    Which is, of course, a banned breed in the UK. Even similar looking dogs can be seen as "of type" and seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act and destroyed. So much as you like the look, you would have to consider very carefully before you look for anything similar - especially if you are still hoping it would be intimidating to anyone interested in stealing from you.

    Plus the cropped ears would be illegal in the UK or anywhere else in the EU.

    also, for anyone who doesn't know APBTs / Am Staffs [Am Pit-Bull Terrier, per the United Kennel Club / UKC, also known as the Am Staffordshire Terrier, per the American Kennel Club / AKC], they make lousy property guards.

    - they're extremely human-affiliative: strangers are just friends they haven't met, B4.
    - they're extremely stoic, & generally hard to scare; excite, yes... scare, not so much.
    - they aren't threatened by much.

    Dogs who are confident & outgoing, which describes 99% of average pitties, are not very "defensive".

    Akitas, in comparison, are downright paranoid; when we went to the circus, my Akita pup was about 5-MO & good-sized already. Two boxes to our left in the stadium-style seating, a security guard was quietly standing, scanning the crowd; he wasn't talking, he wasn't stiff or angry, he was just looking, side to side, up & down, with a neutral expression.
    Moon alerted on him & wouldn't relax - she stood watching him suspiciously, with a constant low rumble of growl that was more felt when i touched her than heard as a sound. // After telling her twice to settle, & having her respond by turning to me, then pointing urgently at the "lurker", I gave up, & we went to investigate [her intention] / say hello [my intention].
    I told the man that she was worried that he was a bad guy, lurking here, & asked him to please talk to her, so that she'd stand down. He squatted, spoke to her quietly, offered his hand, & 30-seconds later, she was ready to leave - mission accomplished, he's off the criminal list.

    She also alerted on a man who was simply standing under a tree for a nighttime smoke; as we approached on the sidewalk, he didn't greet us, didn't move [wave, nod], just watched us approach. Moon stopped dead, & wouldn't let me pass; she moved side-on to block the width of the sidewalk, when i tried to walk past her.
    Again, i had to ask him to speak to her, so she'd relax; he said hi, i thanked him, we moved on. :rolleyes:

    The average pittie in those situations would only want to meet them, roll over, & solicit a belly-rub.
