I don't know anyplace where they are welcome. Maybe you should pick a place that is best for your family instead of your dogs. Unfortunately pitbulls are becoming a very hated breed and bringing these kind of dogs will not make for a very friendly welcome in a new city.

We got rid of our pitbull we moved here.

Pitbulls = trouble. Everyone knows it but the pitbull owners. BTW, I am a former pit bull owner.

I haven't seen or heard anyone say anything bad about Terriers around the Flathead. I don't think anyone cares as long as the dogs are well behaved and under control. I don't care if its a poodle or a doberman, if it's running around loose, pooping in others yards and chasing people,game or livestock it won't be welcome anywhere.
Same goes for people!

I second that ! My neighbors have a so called "pit bull" and it is a sweet dog as long as no toddlers walk near its home and as long as its chain doesn't break as it always does. It chases horses and corners frightened kids on the way to school just like all the rest of the dogs running loose in our town. The loose dog situation got so bad in our town that poisonings were occurring. We now have a dog catcher and did things shape up fast. !
As long as you don't bring a ruined dog here I doubt if anyone will object to the breed so long as the dog is controlled. I know of bull terriers who have turned on their owners and their kids. These breeds have been bred to fight and a pit (fighting) bred dog no matter what breed can be dangerous and may be rejected by a community. At least you have a staffordshire as they aren't all that large. It's the Presa Canarios that are pit bred and trained that freak me out.

My grandfather used to shoot at stray dogs entering his yard. So don't let your dog loose in Montana

Default out of control dogs

If a dog will attack a person without being on command, its dead meat with me. that includes if its running horses, or wildlife. doesnt matter what state you're in.

That is correct and many people just ignore or are not aware that these dogs were not bred to be pets or the family dog but to fight. We were given our pitbull as a pup and we made sure it was highly socialized. We made sure every child on the block came and played with her as much as possible and she was introduced to every neighbor. We were not interested in a guard dog and we did not want to worry about the liabilites with owning a pitbull.

I had a lot of uncles that were farmers and the law was if a dog went after a person or a domestic animal it was put down without hesitation. That is an animal that can no longer be trusted.
