you have to pay for a trace but it's like a back ground check it was seven dollars in NC but ten here in IN. Just go to the state website and click background check it isn't hard, there are other companies that do it as well.

I have never breed any dogs but I have been in the rescue business for 28yrs. I go by first impressions alot. I usually know as soon as I see a person if I like them or not. The times when I thought I was too harsh on someone I got burned. I spay/neuter all of the dogs before they ever leave my place. I try to keep in contact with people but soem move or change phone numbers this happened alot when cells became popular. Up here almost evey plce you call is long distants. The first year I drop in on the person to see how the dog is doing. I do mean dropping in too I don't call or give any type of heads up I'm on my way. I want to see how the dogs is treated on a normal day.

When I got Mikado I had only had one oher pitbull in foster care about 8yrs before. Acama had been badly abused. I took her but she had never been around children and Andreas was only 2 at the time. I lived in a small trailer it was hard. I worked with her for 3mos and then I found a great home. The guy had had pitbulls before. He lived in the country on 10 acreas of land. I talked to him all the time. Acama had a great life.
Would I have given me Mikado. Yes I think that all of those years of working with the badly abused gave me an edge with training him.

Orphans does a background check thru the police station. not only for convictions but for arrests too. alot of folks who get areested dont nessecarily have a conviction. home checks and referals from vet and 3 other people are the next step. 1 out of 16 adopters qualify for a pitbull thru them. its a tough world for the dogs but they are better off staying there.

I wondered this question also... Do people go off of looks at all?

My small worry, is, upon the time we actually get our first bull, will people judge based off of looks? I am a large guy, buzzed/shaved head, sleeved tattoos, etc. I've received the wrong impression many of times in life, gotten plenty of disgusted, scared looks.

I know most of the pitbull community is obviously a diverse community in the first place, so this shouldn't be a concern?

This shouldn't be a problem but the fact is that alot of people jugde you cause of the way you look. It isn't right but that is the way it is. I don't jugde people like that I have adopted to people that looked like they couldn't take care of themself let alone a dog and the dog ended up in the best home.

I'm a clean cut girl and when I tell people I have pitbulls they ask what is a nice girl like you doing with one of those dogs. I get that all the time. This is when I give a educated talk about te breed.

Nice to know.

I honestly figured that most pitbull breeders would understand, just for the fact they are doing something most people wont, like tattoos.

I'm coming up on my first litter of puppies. They will be born on the 30 of this month give or take a few days. I threw the idea of have a breeding around before I even bred them because I wasn't sure what I would do with a litter of puppies. I have placed 4 of them in show homes and they aren't even born yet. One pup is going to a first time pitbull owner. This person came to me and engaged me in a conversation of dog. I loved it cause they showed initiative. They asked me to be there every step of the way. They told me it didn't matter to them wether the pup was male of female or what color the pup was. This was alot easier than I ever thought it would be. I still won't have a litter of pups just to have them. It won't ever be this easy again. Don't think I answered the question but...

I judge people on my first impressions and im rarely wrong. Never on looks i could judge them with my eyes closed...and i do LOL.
I think people will judge the business suit with a pitbull the same as a biker with a pit bull. because there is a pit bull on the end of a leash you automatically get judged. I took grizz on a great walk today ... our usual route. A business women on her 15min break approached me and said how perfect me and my dog go together. i was in my usual blue jeans collared shirt. She was more reffering to my rugged bearded appearance and my muscular rugged dog. I think the dog you own should reflect what you feel inside APBT are for rugged individuals withlots of energy and initiative. You must be consistent in your behavior with your dog so that he too can be be consistant with his. This is not about this thread at all sorry for the hijack but i like what 2tone said and i wanted to elaborate. I dont care if your 7'4" 400lbs and eat homeless people if you have a well behaved smiling pit bull on the end of your leash. you will only get judged as having an outstanding animal. I do not condone eating the homeless! they are not nutritious lol

This is a great thread. I've never had a litter of pits, but who knows what the future holds. While I would most likely keep most of them and place the others with close friends, it does worry me if I had to place any.

I do know that if it was their first pit I would most likely co own the dog for a year or so.
And I would not sell to renters (no offense just a personal preferance)

I'm big on vibes... I'm pretty sensitive to them. If i don't feel comfortable with a person no matter what comes from their mouths I will not place a pup with them. I would place a pup with a person like myself if they showed a sense of maturity and responsibility, and are willing to learn like I was. I will be looking into new owners backround, vet references, job references, and I will require a notorized letter from their landlord if applicable. I'm doing alot of "grilling" as to the type of enviornment that the pups will be raised in. I have a firm contract that must be upheld on the buyers end, if they fail to uphold the contract I will take the dog back.

For the second question, would I have different expectations of a new home for an older dog versus a puppy... No.
