Hi all

Please take a look at the six photos below which I came across online. They show some of the various body coat styles that can appear on this breed of dog. Of the photos shown, please vote for your favourite style/colour/pattern that can then be used as a basis for a future CollectA model.

thank you

Could you add more choices please, or change some of the pictures?
Dog in the first picture - those spots in the undercoat dog owners always try to hide with white powder, it doesn't look good...
Dog in second picture - dogs with white head should have darker pigment, black ring around the eyes, if they are of good quality. It's very hard to make it look good on a model animal, and not to make it too toyish.
Dog in third picture - good color but black mask between white and red makes the muzzle narrow, it would be better if there's no black mask - just red/white contrast
Dog in fourth pic - not bad color pattern, good color but the pose is bad, no life in that dog
Dog in fifth pic - dogs with that color usually have light eyes, which isn't good for AST
Dog in the last pic - good pattern but black isn't my favorite color in AmStaffs

Don't blame me for trying -
Red/white color of dog No 3, without the black mask made in this pattern...

Where is the brindled pattern? That is my favorite color in any dog where it is an acceptable pattern.

Yes, natural, uncropped ears, please!

Pattern no. 6 is nice, I think it would also look good on fawn dog:

If Italians prefer their Cane Corso and Neapolitan Mastiff cropped, I agree. If Germans want their Schnauzers, Dobermanns, Boxers, Pinschers docked or cropped, I agree. Also, if Americans want their Boston Terrier docked and American Staffordshire Terrier cropped, I agree...

I do NOT !!!!
Let people get piercings and tatoos as much as they want, but leave the innocent animals with thir bodies intact ! Suspect
It is bad enough that we breed crippeled animals because some pople think they are "cute", but cutting their ears and tails off is stupid and ridiculous and a silly sort of fashion-freeking from days when ladies wore corsets and Chinese ladies had their feet ruined to look "beautyful". Mad

SO! Now you know MY opinion about this matter Wink

We're all entitled to our own opinion. It's forbidden to crop now so I don't do it anymore. I can't make you like them (nor I will try to), and no one can make me not like them Wink

Ooh, this is going to be great! I love staffies. Very Happy As far as color goes, I'm very partial to dark brindles... still, color isn't exactly a dealbreaker for me, I can always repaint. Just as long as the ears are the way they're supposed to be!
I can accept altered ears or tails if a model is meant to represent one specific individual or if it's meant to be a historical piece*, but as a representation of the breed as a whole, no way.


* - I have model horses with docked tails, for instance, but they're meant to portray animals from one particular period rather than just generic horses.

But yes, I agree about the ears. I'd rather have a model of a dog with natural ears.

I'm very glad seeing this choice in the forum. It is important people participating. I am not an expert of dogs but my choice will be done! :)

Very exiting Very Happy Brindle is a wonderful color but I can always repaint him. So I voted for 5.

I would also prefer natural ears.

I voted for 2, but I do like 6 a lot too. (And would be very happy with 5.) Moral issues aside, I confess I like the look of the "cut" ears. But I had no idea before this thread that the ears were cut.

I like the red fawn dog with a black mask, so I guess, dog number 3 is the closest to that(Not really wild about the confirmation of the dog, I think the DON KING OF RING'S is closest to the AKC breed standard).
I definitely prefer cropped ears, since it gives dogs a regal, noble, alert, and clean cut look. As mentioned in the forum, it "opens a can of worms", with what people prefer and I will respect that, but cropped(Compared to floppy/stand up bat ears on cropped breeds) is definitely more aesthetic.
Ex: I have seen pics of a Boxer with ears uncropped and tail undocked and it looks more like a malnourished Bullmastiff. But that's just me, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Boston markings have always been my favorite pattern, in any color...
