This will be the first American Staffordshire I have owned. I bought Maia from a breeder in Italy, Piergiorgio Lievore, who has several world champions in her bloodline. * sorry, no kennel links* Maia was born on October 1, 2012 so I will be bringing her home after December 5th, once she has received her first vaccinations.
Since I was young, I grew up with a female Doberman Pinscher then a male English Springer Spaniel so have had dogs in my life since I was born. What drew me to the AmStaff/PitBull breed was their loyalty, kindness, willingness, and obviously proving that this breed is not the killer that the media makes it out to be. Once I return to the States, she will be a part of my family of a wife and 3 boys ages 8-13.
