I have a 2 years old rescue gsd mix and I've decided to get a second dog. I really like bully breeds so I was thinking of getting an American Staffordshire Terrier. While I was searching though, I found a rescue puppy and fell in love. He's 1 month old, so he's still with his brothers and mum, and will be adoptable in a few weeks. My only concern is: he really looks like a pitbull/amstaff... his mum not really though, she has a different face, (maybe a boxer mix?), her snout is much longer and she has more wrinkles than a pitbull...so I was wondering if you think he's gonna look like his mum, or more like a pitbull maybe you have more experience picturing how a puppy will turn out....
and I'm not sure if he will be the size of his mum. I'm afraid he's gonna be a giant dog (in italy we have Cane Corso which is pretty common and HUGE like 100pounds, and kinda looks like the puppies too). So I'd like to get an opinion about this
Also, if I get an Amstaff I know I could be able to work with him, do some IPO/obedience, etc. The rescue puppy is impossible to predict if he's gonna be easily trainable or not.
So i'm going crazy. I'll post some pictures. The one I like is the blue eyed one. I've posted a pic of his mum and brothers, just so you get an idea about what kind of dog the father could have been?
