Hello!

I'm new and super excited to be a member! I hope someone can answer my question.

I have an American Pitbull Terrier that I love too pieces! He was a gift from a friend whom own other pitbulls and inform me that my pet is a pure breed pitbull BUT of course no paper to prove it :cry:! He also said that he couldn't register the mother and father because, they also, didn't have papers! Is there anyway obtain papers/register him? I mean you have to start somewhere..right? I don't have any plans to have my pitbull perform in shows or in competitions , I may not even breed him, but I just want to paperwork to proves what he is.

Thank You for listening...

If the parents aren't registered then UNLESS you spay/neuter your pet then NO!! You really need to do some research!

Without registered parents you cannot get legitimate papers for your dog. It also means that there is no way to determine definitively that your dog is an APBT (American Pit Bull Terrier) so it is a good idea to accept that and call your dog what it is: a dog of indeterminate breed and origin, or in other words, a mutt.

Please don't take the word "mutt" as derogatory as many tend to. It's not an insult or a slight towards your dog, who I am sure is a wonderful pet. However there are countless unpapered "pit bulls" flooding the shelters. There is no reason for you to consider breeding your dog and adding to those staggering numbers.

Check out the stickies that MSK listed and if you have any questions that can't be answered by the existing threads and topics on the site feel free to ask away. Oh and pictures, we love pictures :)

What she said^^^^^^ great post Carriana!

Just enjoy your dog for the DOG he is, and there is definitely no need to breed more paperless bully breed dogs. They are filling up our shelters.

You can dog sports with your dog like agility, Weight pull, nose work, etc.

If you want to start somewhere you get a dog with papers from registered parents. The reason those dogs are the ones that are bred is bc people know HOW they are bred. With an unpapered dog it's a gamble, you really don't know what your getting. If they have bad traits why pass those negative traits down? In the end, it's those kinds of dogs that give the breed a terrible name. Not saying you can't have a great unpapered dog. It's just, everything with a big blocky head gets labeled incorrectly. If you have a HA dog that resembles a pit bull, the real deal American pit bull terrier gets the blame for traits that dog of unknown heritage did when he may not even have a trace of American pit bull in him
