LINKS OF INTEREST TO PIT BULL OWNERS

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PLEASE READ!

IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

 

I keep my links updated.

Are you as tired as me of looking at broken links for pit bull kennels? All those fancy web sites are down now, as the average "backyard breeder" lasts about 2 to 5 years. They pump out a few litters and move on to the next fad. Wading through the crapped our kennels on the internet now can be exhausting!

For over 25 years I have not recommended breeders. Mainly because it's almost impossible to find any that are any damn good. Do they title their dogs? No. Do they do the most basic health checks? No. Do they care who they sell their dogs too? No. It's really frustrating. Who would want to suggest anyone support these types of breeders...

But now the American pit bull, after 30 years as a fad breed is in real danger of extinction. Many "big name" breeders have been busted and then cured out and signed their dogs over to be killed by the human societies rather than fight for their dogs. Then there was Boudreaux who wasn't given a chance to rescue his dogs. Rescue organizations are pushing generic, (and altered) back yard bred dogs almost exclusively, and now the fad breeders have so ruined the breed with their "American Bullies" that there is a whole generation of people out there who don't even know what an American pit bull is.

I am taking the extraordinary step of putting up links for American pit bull kennels. Being included on this list does not mean I recommend these kennels, nor that I know anything about them: it only means that they appear to have American pit bulls, a breed which is getting harder and harder to locate. That means the dogs are of standard size and standard colors. It is my sincere hope that responsible, dedicated breed stewards will find good dogs where they are - and start their own breeding programs which include health testing and titling. That's what I did with my Sorrells dogs, and have no regrets.

Our dogs are to fight no more - but that doesn't mean that as good breed stewards we can't keep the dogs intact for the next generation, just as all the generations before us have. The bulldog's job has changed many times: from large game hunter, to butcher's dog, to bull baiter and then to dog fighter. It is changing again, but we must keep the dog ready for whatever is asked of it. Dog fighters, who get their dogs seized do NOTHING to preserve the breed.

SCHUTZHUND EQUIPMENT

NOTICE:

I do not support the use of bulldogs as "personal protection" dogs. I am, however, a schutzhund and ring sport fan, and have competed for over 30 years now. Its a great way to showcase the stable and useful dog.

NOTICE:

Pit bull T-shirts come in a wide variety; tasteless, awesome, lame, eye-catching. Some promote responsible ownership, some don't. While I usually take a hard line on things that promote dog fighting, because some shirts may strike some as "pro dog fighting" while striking others as not at all, I have chosen to list all vendors here, and let you - as an adult - decided who you want to support. I chose to leave it up to you to decide what promotes and what does not. The line is not always clear.

NOTICE:

I have visited rescues, shelters and "sanctuaries" nationwide and have decided that I can only recommend those I have visited in person and those I feel do not "warehouse" dogs in an unacceptable manner.

PLEASE NOTE: Gary Wilkes is an x-dog catcher who is terrified of American pit bulls. He publishes pro-BSL articles and advocates banning of breeds. He considers himself a "positive trainer" and sells training and equipment. Please do not support him in any way. Thank you.

BREEDERS OF
AMERICAN PIT BULLS


Dogs that are 65 pounds and under, correct color, not "fad bred" and the owner can spell "pit bull" correctly. I try to make sure they are still active. Also, all in USA.

That is ALL I guarantee.

Most pit bull kennels last about 2 to 3 years. Just long enough to pump out a few litters of crap and on their way... please do your research.
