Tips
----
Read the information on our website carefully. If you do not fully
understand the requirements your pet may be refused entry into Ireland
or held in quarantine on arrival at your cost -
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Always check your pets EU Pet Passport or Veterinary Certificates for
mistakes before you send them to us. We require Sections I, II, III, IV
and V of the EU Pet Passport or all pages of the Veterinary Certificate.
The tick and tapeworm sections VI and VII should not be completed until
treatment is actually carried out.

Where possible do not use European, American or any other date format.
Instead write out the month name e.g. 01 June 2007 or 06 January 2007.

The microchip number must appear on all supporting documentation (rabies
vaccination certificate, blood test results, veterinary certificates,
etc.).

Any amendments to a certificate must be initialled and stamped by an
authorised vet.

Veterinary Certificates must be printed back to back on a single sheet
of paper.

It would be better for Texas to check this info as it is very important. If information is past on second hand important details might be left out.

So unless you can't sort it that it won't be going into quarantine, you wouldn't be able to import one?

So you must be able to import them without quarantine? or else we'd have no Pits?

I rang them regarding importing a pitbull a few years back and they said no as its a health and safety issue.If people are able to smuggle in guns,cocaine etc-then a dog isnt much more difficult,perhaps they tell lies about what the breed is etc.Id imagine it should be o.k with E.u pet passport.i used to know the lady who wrote whats on the dept of agriculture website and i picked her brain about it(shed nothing to add really)

Pitbulls are out right banned in the uk, it is illegal to import one. As far as I know if you own one in the uk and in the rare case the authorities allow you to keep it, it has to be desexed and you have to be deemed responsible enough to keep it.
