If you are looking at Castillo dogs, you can go onto the forum and ask questions and see picts of dogs out of that line:
Castillo American Pit Bull Terriers

her dogs are not small , they are standard sized. it is sad when so many are breeding for size and way out of standard that people see a correct dog and think it is small. JMO

I've never heard of that yipyip breeder.

I agree Victorino's Kennel has some nice dogs.

Good luck in your search. A lot will come down to what you desire in the dog, your preferences and your future goals for that pup.
I said they are small because he is looking for a large dog. They are small for what he wants. I know they are standard size since I have some of them ;)

Besides the lack of titling, the dogs on that site(anchorchain) are conformation wrecks. Check it out!

I also have to say that the caragan dogs are very nice, to the standard in size and would be a good choice, but I would never pay that much money(1,600) for a pup, when you don't know how it will turn out. I once paid 2,000 for a dog but he had a SchH2 title, OFA good hips, and linebred Gallant pedigree. Now that was a good deal. :')

Bethb2007, I know what you mean about $1,600 for a pup and who knows what it will turn out to be. In doing my searching for a pup I can not believe how much people are charging for some of their dogs. I seen one that was 5,000 for a breeding! That is rediculous.

I pay for bloodline and type....when I have paid $2500+ shipping (actually a car rental plus gas from CT to West Virginia since I dont like to put pups on planes)) it was because I know the type and temperament of a certain bloodline will be there and if not the breeder will replace the pup if need be. I would not pay that much for a pet but for a show prospect...you get what you pay for.

Actually, you can buy a well bred show dog out of dual registered parents, OFA'd hips, champion with titles, reputable breeder and fully guaranteed for under $1000.00.

:) quite a lot, and nothing at all.. . working dogs are just high end dogs bred to work.. game dogs have proven parents, grandparents or great grand parents or a string of proven gr gr grandparents, so that means they are proven sound as sound is a dire attribute to game dogs.. The best mentality cannot be offered unless its proven in these dogs ... Read Stratton, heres a quote from the book: The Truth About the American Pit Bull Terrier..
"It has become an extremely widespread misconeption that dogfighting created people-mean dogs; however, the fact that the dogs' natrues were absolutely sound in an era in which all of them were of apit strains soundly refutes that idea."pg212
in short game dogs are proven working dogs.. working dogs proven sound, proven game.. which is where true working bulldogs come from and all APBTs have to revert back to if not bred for or sound mentality will be lost.. ;)

so as a pet, your game dog can be trusted as it is proven, however when it comes to prey drive on animals, heheheh thus' colby's comment.. " I call them bulldogs, cause thats what they are." Just true grit bulldogs.. They are the nanny dog, the dog in lil rascals of the 1940s that we all loved. Game dogs are proven sound.. to beg the question.

I love the Victorinos dogs, but they don't plan on any breedings anytime soon. I have spoken with them a couple of times and it doesn't look like there is going to be a litter this year, possibly next year. The last litter they had was 2009 if memory serves. I was really hoping they would have some pups this year as I am actively searching for another one.

HardHitting Kennels.... ewwwweeeeeee... they had the FIRE! So much they disapeared into Japan and the phillipines, have not ever been able to get a dog from their direct stock of PURE JOCKO DOGS AT 25+lbs, I have never seen more pure JOCKO w/ out the redboy...
There is a private kennel in Bville Oklahoma that has the purest strain of Barney's Going Light in the country; Scott don't sell anydog less than 2000, he had every ped signed by Stratton! Very COOL his dogs are only 25+lbs(getting one soon through an old barter) both kennels Hardhitting and "scott" have gamey little dogs under 38lbs that have the pinkest of noses..
Hey there I'm really interested in a lightner strain in Oklahoma is there anyway I can view the dogs on line or contact this breeder I have a male from ironline kennels norrad/reddevil/corvino he's 13 now and another male from anchorchain out of scratch/Mia but I would really love direct stock of jocko and or going light Barney if you have any info how I would go about getting one that would be great I'm pretty limited here in Canada to many haters lol

Don't listen to this digbat. I just checked out Victorino's website and the Castillo-Greco dogs from Anchorchain or California Pits are waay nicer. They descend from the OFRN lines through Hemphill and Wallace foundations. Breeders like RDC (Real Deal Chocolates) have Greco/Castillo dogs and they are PROVEN work and sporting dogs, with tons of drive. They excel in hog catching, weight pull, treadmill, lure coursing, protection work and pretty much anything else you want them to do. The famous 'Boogieman' [the most titled grand champion] Pitbull comes from Greco-Castillo. Some are on the larger size, but mostly in the 65-80lb range. Good dogs!
