Ya I know right , its what this guy is using to pursuade buyers to buy into his "rare color gene" the merle lol. http://blueswaggerline.yolasite.com/about-us.php He had a litter just drop he advertised it as ABKC's 1st merle litter, I looked into it a bit and found that No the ABKC does not accept merle and if he is registering them ABKC he is lying about the color. Wish there was a way to look into if he registered a litter recently but I guess like any other registry you can use any name so assuming I wouldnt find anything. Would love for this guy to get exposed for his lies.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. It was right around the part where I was reading about the standard on tails, where they put the Pit Bull standard, then lob on that 'really anything is except-able) So, they HAVE a standard, but then they don't really care.
I got over it and laughed when I read the she/male part of the standard. What can I say, I'm easily amused.

Why don't they just call it a newly formed catch dog registry? Why do all these 'new' breeds want to call themselves APBT?

Im pretty sure you can , seems there are new ones popping up all over the place. Its pretty annoying though to think of all the people this guy and those like him are fooling. then when they come onto boards or run into people who actually know the breed and the TRUE standards they are shocked m its sad how people can be fooled into thinking this is right and its acceptable. Good reason right there as to why people should research there kennels they are looking to buy from. Merle can be pretty but on a breed that is meant to be merle not this one.

yeah totally sucks. I mean I have seen some pretty merle pit mixes, but its sad they think they are actually paying for a pure bred and not having a clue and then they get sent here and it LOOKS legit, ugh so terrible.

merle isnt recognized in this breed. A merle APBT should be fixed and loved as a pet. No need to register mixed breed.

I'm sorry, but no. First off, any reputable registry requires info on the sire and dam. THEN there is the fact that the APBT doesn't carry the gene for Merle, so that gene has to come from another breed. no matter which ancestors your pup takes other traits, like coat length or build or head shape from, you can't change the fact that his coat pattern came from a dog of another breed.

What is your interest in registering him?

I know this is old but I had to cut reading that short it was horrid. Almost as bad as the Pit Bull registry

Some of the dogs look pretty nice though, but they aren't APBTs at all. I really wish people would stop trying to make a buck on the breed I love so much.
