Hello Everyone. About 2 years ago I lost my girl, Nala to cushings and diabetes. I think I'm ready to welcome a new dog into our family but I want to make better decisions this time. I guess I was partially lucky. I found a craigslist ad for a beautiful red nose APBT and she was amazing for 7 years but I don't want to risk it. I'm trying to do all my research but I would really appreciate some help. I'm looking for an affordable but notable breeder for XL APBT. As you can imagine they're so many and really difficult to authenticate. There is one breeder that caught my eye, but your advise shif really help. Does anyone know anything about Bayou blood kennels in Louisiana?

Welcome to GP Rich. I'm sorry for your loss.
A few bits of info that you'll need to know when looking for your next dog. There is no such thing as XL APBT and if the breeder has them listed as such, you should steer away from that breeder. XL is a class in the ABKC for American Bullies. APBT max out at around 65 lbs.
After reviewing the site for Bayou I see that they actually proudly list Iron Cross Kennels in their dogs pedigrees. ICK was banned from the UKC for hanging papers. (hanging papers is falsifying pedigrees, which usually means they have out-crossed with another breed which would then create mutts and not the breed they have papered)

The best advice that I can give is to go to an ABKC show. Look at the dogs there. Find dogs that you like and ask the owners how they're bred. See if they have a kennel and breed responsibly. Then price them out and find the perfect pup. Don't expect a well bred AmBully to be cheap though. They tend to overprice them. But if you hang around shows and get to know people, sometimes they cut you a deal.

EckoMac, Thank you for the guidance and advice. This is exactly what I needed to get me off on the right path. I will look into ABKC shos in my area.

Do you recommend any publications, sites, or Youtube sites to find reputable breeders?

I do not recommend any other way to seek out a responsibly bred Bully outside of visiting shows and getting to know people in the Bully community. There are far too many back yard breeders out there and anyone can set up a website or Youtube page to peddle puppies. The key is to find someone who knows what they are breeding (AmBully not APBT), titles their dogs, and breeds for conformation/work and health. You'll be hard pressed to find a working Bully, but you can find conformation correct dogs that are healthy if you take the time to research and get acquainted with breeders and kennels.

I literally had NO CLUE as to what I was getting into. See, I wasn’t set on a pitbull, I just wanted “a dog” for companionship, I grew up with large, rambunctious dogs, I figured I’d know my stuff.
Enters Patchouli the rescue pitbull...

And yes it’s true, pitbulls are a completely different breed, omg...

But it’s all for the best: once you go pit, you just can’t quit!

So far my biggest challenge has been dealing with the ignoramus coalition of those who are convinced that Patchouli is a vicious killer while he tries to back away from charging chihuahuas.
Otherwise I get assaulted daily by giant slobbery kisses, I am blackmailed into giving aggressive belly rubs under pain of getting slimed if I don’t comply immediately, and I am doomed to being in shape now since we walk/hike about 10 miles a day to keep His Royal Majesty Sit Patchouli Cuddles the First happy.

My quality of life has easily quintupled since he came into my life. ��

Thanks a lot for making this post. I have so may friends who rushed into getting a pit bull, only to later find out that they couldn't really keep them. My advice to most people who want a pit bull is to take your time before making a decision. It's best for both you and the dog if you are think ahead about all of the responsibilities that come with training and caring for a well rounded pit bull.

10 miles a day is quite a trek for us 2-legged type! Sounds like Patchouli should be giving some foot-rubs in exchange!

Oh but he does. Sit Patchouli Cuddles the First gets a full body and paw massage whenever he wants... which means several times a day ��

EDIT: I misread. I doesn’t give massages, he gives... SPONGE BATHS ��

I have looked through this tread today and remembered how I`ve got my Pete. At first I just wanted a dog so I started to search for information. By the moment I've bought Pete, half of the Internet was read by me to be sure that everythyng will go right. At the same time, I know, some people do not even try to know more about the dog before having it. And they do not imagine their future responsibility and dog`s needs. So this is a nice post, I just afraid that not many of such owners will see it...

Very well said. I agree with everything, and definitely about the genetics. Like stated, dog agression in this breed may not show up until later on, our female was fine with other dogs until she was almost 4 years old, and then it was a different story. This is a fantastic breed but only for responisble and educated owners.

Definitely a breed to research, I spent almost 3 years between research and finding 2 APBT of similar background but not close enough to need a quick outcross when breed just glad the old lines are still kept right by those who truly appreciate the breed and want to preserve it. I've tried to tell people to never leave them alone with other pets, and I found out the hard way they escape crates, kennels, and even sliding glass doors and can close them behind themselves the hard way, luckily with no issues of aggressive tendencies being a reason or the resulting issue of escape but some dogs can and will clear up words near 8-10ft fences if they are fit enough. I had a football sized yard that I kept them constantly running around in between fetch and them romping around the only animals that were safe around them were all cats for some reason, and dogs I introduced specifically to them outside their territory which is sound advice when adding a new dog a walk test with a distance of about 30ft to start to judge their reaction and make sure they aren't solely focused of the other dog is a huge help, animal friendly only goes so far. My Sophia would instantly go into full blown aggression when another dog would show any sort of aggressiveness, Tyler was much more relaxed but if she went he was sure to follow his woman lol. Luckily I did raise them both from Tyler at 4 weeks and Sophia at 5 weeks they tend to listen better when the habits are formed to be more productive, I've had to rehab and re-home a few ex-pit dogs since my two would not tolerate the aggression and I don't like seeing dogs abused in anyway, not saying everyone who ever used them in that manner abused them, but standby vets and high care costs are less and less a priority to people these days. My favorite was Roxy I got her from someone who bred her back to back and I couldn't stand to see him ruin a good dog like he was, she did great with Sophie at 7 weeks til about 7 months when Sophie proved to be a force to be reckoned with coming in to her first heat and they were separated for the next almost year before Roxy was ready to go to someplace with pets. The means of separation I feel also helps or hurts their behavioral issues too, restrictions tend to drive APBT crazy especially if another dog or animal in general is in view they like freedom and tend to not get so tense which has cause some issues in the keeping of several for me in the past. But a lot of work and the preparation for one after the research should end in a good result. Awesome post
