Some background info..

The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 (c. 65) (and as amended in 1997) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It was passed in response to increasing numbers of attacks by aggressive and uncontrolled dogs, many resulting in serious injury and even death.

The act makes it illegal to own any Specially Controlled Dogs without specific exemption from a court. Dogs that obtain exemption must to be muzzled, kept on a lead in public, be registered and insured, neutered, tattooed and receive microchip implants. Breeding, sale and exchange of these dogs is also banned by the Act.

Four specific types of dog were identified by the Act:

  Pit Bull Terrier
Japanese Tosa
Dogo Argentino
Fila Brasileiro

The Act also covers cross breeds of these four types of dog. Dangerous dogs are not classified by breed label, but by 'type'. This means a judgment, made by a court, about its physical characteristics, and whether they match the description of a prohibited 'type'. will determine whether the dog is prohibited under the Act.
