      "the American pit bull terrier is a product of cross-breeding specifically made to fight and kill. They are bred killing machines. "

      Did anyone read a book? They were actually used as herding dogs and family companions ..

      People may have used them to herd, and they're obviously companion dogs, but the origin of the breed is absolutely as a fighting and baiting dog.

      Very true.

      I've had this book a very long time. It was written by one of the legend breeders. Mr. Stratton & his family has been fighting for the breed for 50+ yrs.

      You should see how he/she likes the oikos. Mine likes the chobani just fine but the oikos is like crack for her.

      I would say he's mixed just like the one in the book. (All proven fact..)You can't really compare the PB from back then to todays dog. Mainly due the breed almost dying off in the early 1900's. We really didn't see full 100% APBT till around 72'. Before that was mastiff/terrier mixes.I read that it was down to 2 bitches & 8 males.....in the world. so it took alot of mixing & inbreeding to bring the breed back.

      One good way to know a full 100% APBT is the paws. (Requirement of UKC & other kennel clubs). All 4 paws should be crunched in like their in high heels. Being that PB's have strong traits which makes it hard to pick out full bloods, the paws are the weakest trait. Todays age, the breed has be defined to a T.

      Ive been around these dogs all my life. All my brothers had PB's growing up. And a great friend of ours breeds his own bloodline (where Tiger & my old PB Buck came from)

      I forgot to mention, my brother PB died a few weeks ago. 17 yrs old. The last 6 with lung damage from when he was trapped in the fire. R.I.P. Tiger. Another great Dibo Pitbull.


      And Panda who died in the fire.


      He says Tiger was his last......but we all know that won't last. I said the same when my old PB Buck went missing. I went 6 yrs without a dog......till i saw Klue. I always remind the wife about how many time she shot me down when i bought up getting another PB....and she alway admit that she was wrong. She can't live without her "Kulebur"

      Not trying to be a prick but both of the dogs you just posted look like they have major faults, and your going to try and tell someone else that there dog is not full blooded, most people I know who are experts would have cropped the ears of the dog with them sticking straight up, and the brown one looks way out of proportion for a "pure" blooded dog. Yes Klue is a picture perfect example of the way an APBT should look, however the trends as of the 10 years has been bredding them bigger, or in case of the American Bullys, they actually in my eyes have completely ruined the image of PBs bc too many people dont understand that American Bullies are a different breed of dog than Pitbulls

      Ehh which dog are you referring to, the white one? His ears look cropped straight up to me otherwise the fence gets in the way..

      There are two arguements/ debates I absolutely loath:

      1) people who argue that pit bull breeds are absolute vicious baby and dog eaters.
      2) people who debate over the authenticity of your or others (non-show) family dog, its redundant.

      That's why I stayed out of it

      I can't stand going to pit meet ups and people asking if she's red nose or brown nose or telling me how she's a staffordshire bull terrier or that she's a mix and I should have her DNA tested.

      It is nice to help change people's opinions of the breed to let them know she was taken in a fighting bust, but beyond that I don't care what 'type' of pit she is. People can think what they want. She's just my dog

      Simply for the ability of not having to lie or get caught lying I would actually prefer never to know exactly how much pit mine is. Generally I'm never really for being ignorant but this is one instance where I prefer never to know.

      I have been tempted to DNA test my lab though just to see what else she is.

      cool I'll keep that in mind for my lab mix after I move, not knowing where I'll live in 2 weeks is higher priority then knowing why my dog is a psycho ..

      I know you weren't I only brought it up bc of what the other guy said about someone elses dog, regarding its "pure" blood status. I'm not that way either just dont like people that say someone else dog isnt pure. Pitbulls are one of the few breed that can have a huge variance in size, weight and general appearance, that it is truly impossible to disprove someone saying that their dog isnt pure. Of course there are definite mixes out there that you can spot, coat length is the biggest give away, but other than that most differences are merely a fault with the breeding not a "mixed" trait.

      I hear ya. I've moved around quite a bit over the last year or so, too. Been a bit rough on the pittie. Moving to WV now? Say hi to Kula and the rest of Matty's pups for me
