Ive actually been looking for a pitbull lately, and when I look for, in particular, puppies, it seems as if almost everyone on classifieds are BYBs. when i look at kennels the price of a pup is more than what i expect. i cant say they are expensive and i cant complain about their prices, because people can spend whatever they want on a pet, in my opinion. i know it sounds stupid but thats just how i think lol

kennels have all price ranges for pups... perhaps you jsut having serached enough of them. you can most likely find a good breeder in your area so you wont have to ship for a decent price i.e. $500

May i also add this cross post by sadieblues to help you out...

You should read both of those before considering anyone a reputable breeder. Also something to consider is you have two dogs already and you want to bring a "pure bread APBT" into your home. The chances of the dog having DA are pretty high. Could make for alot of crate n rotate.

BTW what area are you in maybe another member on here could help.

i was reffering to the Original Poster in the 2nd post.... to you in the first. California has MANY fine breeders .... there is a very nice colby breeder i like in LA actually with very reasonable prices. Those are very typical of our breed. Unless you were looking for a bully type breeder.

Ca can be very hard to find good breeders of quality dogs. Most everything "pitbull" is American bully ( most not well breed) . There are quite a few shows coming up in CA that might be able to set you up with a proper breeder. The prices are outrageous in this area, but it works for people who want a more true to standard type dog because they are priced very affordable due to sadly the American Bully begin the better seller in CA. $350-$500 you can find nice dogs, just gotta wait for them..

Alphamum.. have you maybe considered talking to some of our breeders here on the board? Are you looking for just a pet, or a conformation dog, working dog, etc? I'm sure someone on here would have a purebred available and just might be able to negotiate a suitable price that works for both your family and theirs, depending on what you're looking for. Good luck, though, and keep us posted!

I actually looked into those type of classified ads. IMO it seems kind of sketchy because one minute youre looking at an ad of what can be well bred pitbulls, then another minute youre looking at an ad that is obviously of a BYB. What I am trying to do is to develop an eye for BYBs, and an eye for well bred puppies. Ive read somewhere that there can be well bred pitbulls on these kinds of ads, but it seems kind of difficult to distinguish ones who are of reputable breeders, and those who are of BYBs. I guess you just have to pay them a visit, if it comes down to it. Or maybe im still a rookie.

there is a difference between good looking dogs.... and well bred pit bulls.... make no mistake. To truely determine if you have a well bred dog you must know the bloodline the ancestors and the parents... inside n out if possible. You cant tell anything from pictures ...appearance is not a good judge of an APBT. They vary too much in shape n size to tell what a dog can do from a picture. Buying from a reputable breeder with a solid bloodline and years of experience and lots of knowledge is the best way to go... they will help you along with questions or problems. These breeders dont post up adds on sites... there dogs have waiting lists. The wait is well worth it.

Hey man Lil Momma has an ad out! ( not on craigslist) lol... Sometimes even good breeders get one that gets left behind..... But I do have to agree most breeders advertising their entire litter on free sites and in newspapers, are just bybs trying to peddle off their litter.

IMO using there is nothing wrong with using ad sites or the newspaper, it is still just a way of putting breeders and owners together, IMO no different than a breeder having a website. On the breeders side you have to sort thru alot more trash but you can find great people out there. 2 of the best owners I have found where from KIJI and Laura got Nevaeh off a free pup w/spay ad I posted on Craigs list.

With a buyer its the same way, you have to sort thru and find what you are looking for, due to the fact that alot of bybs also take advantage of these sites. My first tip of a byb is they have the whole litter posted, pics 2-5 days old and taking deposits for pics now based on color. No mention of bloodlines or pedigree. Selling points are head size, color, weight. No mention of working or showing ability, no mention of any socialization or training before the pups leave. These may not all be mentioned in the ads but when you contact a breeder they should be able to tell you what lines they are breeding and why. What there goal and point is in producing this litter. What basic training and manners the pups come with. Usually a 15 min chat can clear up if they have any idea what they are doing or breeding.

But like I said you can at times find people who have one or two pups left ( for whatever reason) and are just trying to find good owners.

However finding a good breeders website is much faster and reliable.
But not all breeders have websites. So they advertise different ways.

I think the OP cannot consider rescues from a shelter because a lot of shelters list pits as not good for homes with kids, other dogs, or other pets.

Look up pit bulls on petfinder and you see a lot of this. It's unfortunate since they are severely limiting the amount of homes they allow these dogs to go to.
