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...
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.
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.
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
