PLEASE HELP
Is registration for my Pitbull possible?
She will be 3 years old in November 2014, weights 80lbs, color: fawn and is not fixed.

I "adopted" her a while ago from a friend who could not keep her
and they had absolutely no papers on her except from Banfield Hospital (which is really nothing)(I think).
I don't talk to her last owner any more
and I don't know any information about her background or her parents.
I don't even know if she is full bred or not.

I would really like to get her officially registered with a legit registry by time she is 3 years old. Not worried about the price, just the process.

Thanksss

Houston, Texas USA

Unless you received any type of registration paperwork from her previous owner at the time of "adoption", then unfortunately, no, you will not be able to register her. I'm so sorry to have to give you this news, but it's the cold, hard truth. Just love her, continue to train her, and be a representative of the breed and breed types.

Also being female and weighing 80 lbs, there is a high chance she isn't apbt either. So trying to register her as one would be futile. But as said by the previous poster, you cannot register her pure bred with out paper work.

Now that doesn't mean you cannot register her. AKC and ADBA both I believe have a limited program. Which means she would have to be spayed and can be used in their sporting events. If that's what you are wanting. :)

She is blue and white...not fawn.

And like the others said, you can not register her unless you spay her and then they will give you limited registration so that you can participate in sports events. :)

So she's really a house dog and gets very low activity. Could this be why she's 80lbs? & do you have a guess of what she might be?

No. A dog with no proof of parentage that weighs 80 lbs, probably isn't an apbt. Doesn't have anything to do with her being a house dog. I'm not trying to be rude, its just more likely she isn't rather then she is.

And TC, I love my Banfield office. My vet is one of the best in my area.

Oh I believe you, I know very little about apbt in the first place. I was just told by the last owner that she was pure. I love her no matter what she is and it really doesn't matter to me
But yea, thanks for your knowledge :)

I am glad you understand. And I am more than willing to share with you. I will like to add that a lot of people say they own pit bulls. But there is only way to know for sure if you own one or not. Pedigree. :) These dogs very in so many shapes, colors, markings and sizes. There are also so many mixtures of breeds that looks like an apbt. So the only way to really know is to have paperwork.

She is pretty regardless to what she is. I personally would love to see more photos of her. :) I'm just passing along some things I learned that helped me and hope it helps you.

Yes. He is actually my first pure bred dog. I am going to start showing him this November.

This is a more recent photo:


He's a Character. People here like to talk about his ears. xD Those darn Sorrells dogs either have big ears or long legs. My boy got both! haha.

Oh Sorrells is the apbt bloodline he is.

ETA: His whole name is: Tatonka's Apollo

Thank you. He is buckskin/fawn(they are basically the same color) and white.

He is pretty much full grown and his show weight is around 43 lbs. His house weight is around 45 lbs.
