Congratulations, can't even imagine how happy and relieved you must be!

On a side note, as I've been reading this whole post only today, I just have to say it's pretty pathetic to go after Staffies, really.... Is there a chance the authorities would take a few lessons from Meloncollie to learn about the dog/owner relationship and who's responsible for what?
We can only dream

True, I didn't think about that. They would probably want to know why a Tyson sized dog would want a jersey anyway

I've made a few in the past, so they're not difficult to make. Just find a cheap one that fits and use it as a pattern.

Ok, she's replied. Aparently they are available in post pet shops especially in Rugby season. She got our 2 from the Petshop in Paulshof (that only helps if you know where Paulshof is right ;-)

Fantastic news, Mike - that's a great result!

Kudos to you, and even more kudos to Tyson.

I think the little guy has earned some extra biscuits - or perhaps a nice juicy steak - for all his hard work.

Congrats all around.

Re: Calling all Staffie lovers!! (Staffordshire Bull Terrier) (Other dogs also welcom

Hi well done for passing the test with flying colours - one more positive for Staffy lovers!
I moved to Valais after the ban was in place and the rules stated that as long as I had already owned Tobias prior to moving here I was allowed to bring him with me - might be different for other cantons.
I agree though - a positive test in one canton is not the same for all cantons! You would still 'officially' have to muzzle the dog for example in Valais but maybe if you carried your certificate you would be let off (assuming you get stopped anyway - not sure how often police actually stop people? They just smile at me with Tobias - think they realise they have more important things to do!).

Annabelle

Plus, this test (canton Zurich specific) is only for dogs that were already residing in the canton pre-enforcement of the ban. I.e. end last year/beginning this year. From then onwards, they are part of the 4 listed banned breeds. Therefore, cannot be purchased, brought in or owned thereafter. I also think (though can't confirm), that you are no longer allowed to import the dogs into Switzerland at all.

I know this probably breaks your heart (as it would for any Stafy owner), but you need to know... I am really sorry.[/QUOTE]

Re: Calling all Staffie lovers!! (Staffordshire Bull Terrier) (Other dogs also welcom

Hi,

As a South African who loves Staffies, I came across this post and was hoping if someone could advise, I have posted on loads of other forums, although this is a Swiss post, im getting desperate now.

I have a job offer in Walldorf and I need to bring my Staffordshire Bull Terrier into the country. I beleive it is a banned breed, is there no legal ways around this, perhaps a temperament test , or am I hitting a dead end , your advice would be appreciated.

Neil

Hi Neil,

Just to double check, where are you now? (country) and where are you going with the Staffy? Also include cantons.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Neil,

Unfortunately... I am really sorry about this, but according to what I know, the importation of Staffy's into Germany is not allowed. I would have to check how it works here in CH. As they are banned in certain cantons, but may not be banned "per se" into Switzerland, depending on which canton you go to.

Would you like me to check for Switzerland? Don't know if that would help though...

Cheers,
Mike

No worries, thanks for the effort. Pretty retarded laws on that side of the world.
