The breeder I bought her from said she was Avant and Las Vegas Red, never got to look into bloodline till I saw this forum. She's purebred American Pitbull Terrier but is Avant and Las Vegas Red. Anyone know of any of the two?

Avant is an American Bully bloodline
MR. AVANT'S 100% PIT BULLS
I could not find anything on Las Vegas red but it too sounds like a bully bloodline but maybe someone has a picture of them.
So if your dog is part avant he is not a purebred American Pit Bull Terrier your dog is an American Bully. It can be misleading if you have ADBA or UKC paperwork because it says APBT but that is due to paper hanging in the Am Bully. Do some research on bully lines so you can understand what breed you have and can now call them as such. You can also have the registry do a pedigree analysis for you to see what other lines are in your ped or you can order a 7 generation pedigree.

If you have a ped then the dog is pure bred but it is not an APBT it would be an American Bully, due to the bloodlines. It gets confusing because some registries still register American Bullies as APBT's, you just have to look at the bloodline to see what breed the dog really is. Does that make sence?

Most BYB's have no clue what they are breeding and if they sold that dog as a APBT then they had no clue what type of dog they have. Bullies came from APBT's but to gain size and certian extreme looks they added in other breeds and did what is called paper hanging. For example they bred a mastiff with a APBT to gain size but registered them as APBT's and lied about breeding to that mastiff. Thus breeding what we know today as American Bullies. There is more to that story and as you do research you will learn how the bully came about.
Lets use your Avant part of your bloodline as an example

Here is a dog from Avant himself that he calls a pit bull

Notice the wide chest, short legs, huge head with huge lips? None of those are in the breed standard for American Pit Bull Terriers but they are standard in the ABKC or the Bully breed club.

Here is an American Pit Bull Terrier

This is one of my dogs who is not gamebred but a fine example of an APBT. Now compare the two dogs and do you see the difference, can you tell they are not the same breed?

Here is one of my gamebred dogs

a little different from the one above but you can tell they are the same breed and they both still fit the standard for an APBT.

Here is another one of my dogs just as another example of different bloodline but still an APBT that fits the standard.


Here is the ADBA Standard, it is not the full standard but you get the point.
Overall Appearance 20 points
A. Conforming to breed type
1. Should look like an American Pit Bull Terrier from across the ring
2. Sturdy, three dimensional. Giving the impression of strength, not slight or frail.
3. Appears square, with heavy boned, solid front end with a light and springy back end.
4. Should look athletic, not bulky. Musculature should be smooth but defined.
5. Presentation of an adult dog should be of a lean, exercised animal showing a hint of rib and backbone (without hipbones
showing) with muscles firm and defined. Clean, glossy coat with short trimmed nails. Presentation of dogs in the puppy
classes should be of a well nourished puppy, showing no ribs, backbone or hips. Coat should be glossy with short, trimmed
nails.
B. Balance
1. Equal angulation of front and rear assembly - judged best at the trot.
2. Height to weight ratio - the tallest dog at a given weight
3. Head size in proportion to the body, with a neck long enough to have the head appear above the top of the back when head
is in a normal upright position.

Here is the ABKC (American Bully Kennel Club) standard, again part of it.

General Impression
The American Bully should give the impression of great strength for its size. Compact to medium/large size dog with a muscular body and blocky head. Powerful in it's movement and should display effortless movement at the same time. Keenly alive and alert to its surroundings. The American Bully should have the appearance of heavy bone structure with a Bully build and look.


They are two different breeds even though the ADBA and UKC still register them as APBT's for now. The reputable breeders are now using the proper registry the ABKC.

Also check out the Bullies 101 section on here. Not sure who's running it at the moment but Loud Mouf might be able to shed some more light on your pup's ped.

Avant is a big bloodline in Texas and yes it is Bully. They are typically red dogs and from everything I have read on them several have really bad ankle problems. I'll post more in a minute.

this is a catch 22 scenario as the bully breeders once again pawn off crap
dogs as pit bulls,... and on the flip side you have an individual who's been
hoodwinked by the media, and didn't research before buying. what does that
lead too? an unhappy owner, and a lesson learned once again through pain
and loss of time and money. next time put in the man hours of researching
purebred dogs for future reference and this wouldn't have happened.

From everything I am seeing and reading the holts stuff is based off the castillo bloodline I am sure mr avant might have used this blood as the foundation of his line which is where you may see a few of these dogs posted above shown in your dogs ped way back. Anyway you own an American bully.

Here is a dog with some avant and holts Vegas red Odin is in the 4th generation

The Avant bloodline was started by MT Avant and a few kennels in Austin, Texas breed 100% Avant. Most 100% Avant dogs are often Easty Westy and not conform to ABKC standard. Like I said in my earlier post they have ankle problems. Now I have seen some Avant/Gaff crosses that are very nice. It stems from Camelot blood from what I have seen and it can be found mixed with RE, Gotti, Watchdog etc. Avant did have a game dog at one time.

As for the Las Vegas Red, Sadie posted everything that I found on it.
