I'm new to the whole blood line and ped thing, and I feel as though I'm chasing myself in circles, I wanna get a puppy for my daughter because we are moving out and I myself was raised around bully's my whole life and I love them. Right now I have an Am staff/ APBT (jeep redboy/razors edge) mix, and have always grew up around mixes, but now I wanna get a pure breed APBT with a good ped and blood line, not from back yard breeders making stuff up. My question is where do I start? What do I look for? What's a good bloodline to go with and any reputable breeders around Philadelphia . I'm looking for a short stocky big headed bully bloodline lol.
Thanks alot

I think you are looking for a UKC dog. The one you posted is UKC type, they are not your original gamebred APBT, but also not bullies. A middle ground if you will. I would go to some UKC shows and meet up with some good people.

I would also recommend looking at Nevada Kennels website. She has some very nice UKC dog and is a very good person to deal with when it come to the UKC world.

I'm not looking to show the dog, I would just like a good looking APBT from a good line with a good ped just to play with lmao

Thanks for clarifying that for me! I was a little lost. The dog she posted wasn't quite a bully but also definitely not the average APBT. Very pretty dog though.

If you like the UKC look I would check out GreenLeaf Kennels or Blue Valley Kennels too they have nice dogs and typically have one to two pet quality pups up for grabs every litter. Both are great and easy to work with. Neither breed often but both have pups available now.

UKC isn't about you looking for a show dog.. UKC dogs have the more bulk and look you want. Saying you want an APBT people are going to be leading you to gamebred lines and that is not what you are saying you are looking for. If you want a dog that is the body type you posted then you need to be looking at UKC style dogs. Shows are where you meet reputable good breeders, that doesn't mean you have to show your dog or even get a show quality dog.

I would suggest you look at the kennels that were posted. There are hundreds of bloodlines for dogs.

From what you are saying you will have to find a dog from the "show" crowd.
Meaning an American Staffordshire Terrier.
REAL American (pit) Bull Terriers are never bred for looks and size. "Bigger they are, bigger the chance they are a cur."
In saying that, real ones are bred for performance, not show.
The only size and color that matters in a game dog is winning.

Today's "show" ApBT's are in the same boat as the AST, to many of us who own game bred dogs.
But still, the game dogs make better quality pets if they go to the right owner.
But they bring with them greater responsibilities.

ONLINE PEDIGREES - Access Denied

think you have to click twice i aint real good at moving the pictures around

among other things this is a conformation 'ch' APBT. but you will see them change from show to show. the judges have standards to go by, but they're really only guidelines. each judge may see each dog a little differently.

if you can see the picture, that means you can also see the pedigree. apbt's and bully's have different lineage.

it's not gonna put it up A& J'S DUKE

DAGGONE IT!!!!!!!!!!! coach how are you doing that????? i'm doing the short cut to copy then getting back over here then pasting and all the info comes up but when i post it then try to read it it says access denied.
but anyway thanks i owe you.

now back to topic, if you want to see what a dog bred to be game is: THIS IS ONE.......... notice i didnt say a game dog.
because what some consider game might not be the same as what someone else considers game.

i read somewhere, somepeople measure gameness in inches, and some people measure gameness with a yardstick.

Yeah the person who asked the original questions says they want an APBT but what they really want is more of a UKC style dog, not an ADBA. It sounds to me like they want a classic Am Bully or a American Staffordshire.

Oh and about copying the link....ok so when you are on the ped page, go to the very top of the computer screen and highlight everything in the white box in the center of the screen. Then click "copy" and come over here and paste it. Does that make sense? :)
