The fastest way to rule out kennels with websites are as follow:
"blue pit bull" -hard pass
Dogs not titles, shown, worked or health tested- HARD pass
Dogs that don't fit the breed standard at all- pass
The word "fire" used anyone in the description of a dog.- pass
Any dog priced over $3-4K that doesn't have a slew of titled dogs in it's pedigree- pass

So that's a hard no on both. I don't even have to peruse their websites. Do you have any other pets or plan to have any other pets? If you are looking for an APBT and plan to have no other pets, you should find an ADBA dog show to attend and see what's in your area. When you see a dog you like, you walk up and ask questions. Folks like to talk about their dogs. If you're looking for a classic American Bully to work with in agility, then hit up an ABKC or UKC show and do the same.
Seeing the dogs in person and speaking to owners and handlers will give you more insight into the lines you're looking at and help you find the right direction for what you're looking for.
Also, it's show season, so now is the best time to get out there and check them out.

Hey guys! I’m fairly new to APBTs and I have been doing some research for the past few months. I plan on getting a pup in the near future but I’ve been having trouble finding reputable breeders. I would like to hear your thoughts on these breeders and if you have any suggestions, please let me know. I am not interested in AmBully’s or those XL pits. (I live in Austin, Texas and plan on doing agility and possibly some wp with my pup)

Thank you so much. I do not have any other pets and I may get another APBT if my experience with the first one goes well. Otherwise, I do not plan on having any other pets.

Just remember that bull breeds are genetically predisposed to dog aggression. So make sure you are prepared to crate and rotate if a second dog is a possibility in the future.

Also, it doesn't hurt to have a little background on strains and bloodlines. A good breeder will post the pedigrees of their foundation stock on their website or on the online APBT pedigree database. Then you'll know if your pup descends off the real stuff.

Oh they are so great, I a, a happy 3-y old pitbull owner an must say, that these 3 years were the best in my life! Taking care of such a dog is a very interesting, but responsible matter! You should always be aware of what they are eating and it took me some time to get to know some usefull tips. Thanks Lord, a friend of mine once showed me this site, where I had an opportunity to read more about some nutrition tricks. Maybe it will save my mates life one time.

Cool, I'll check out the link. Ya my boy is 2 years old now and we're inseparable. Goes everywhere with me. He's a lot to handle and sometimes I feel I just need a break, but I still love him to death. Canine cancers are still on the rise and nobody knows why cases have gone up so much in the last 20 years. So yes, diet is VERY important. After doing my own research (opinions still vary tho), I give my dog a high grade kibble - Orijen's Regional Red or Trim n Fit. Once a week I feed him 2 cans of Tripett, which is tripe from a grass fed animal (high in omega 3 and 6). Then a couple times a month I feed him store bought meat and cook a nice stew for him. I also add organ meat which is REALLY important for dogs (liver, kidney, chicken hearts, gizzards). Everything in moderation, but I truly believe variety is the key to good health for our dogs.
