All of my dogs are rescues. My APBT is from someone who was going to surrender her dog to the shelter. I told her I'd take her instead.

Did you try a shelter? I got my APBT from a shelter; they constantly had them there.


Quoting AliKatAK47:

No. Most of the time when I see someone advertising "Pit Bulls". They are either 1)those overgrown mongrels or 2) mixed breed dogs with big heads. I was looking for an APBT breeder for a year and could only find hippo breeders.  I haven't seen a true APBT in a long time. I have one but even she is not to standard because of that one ear. My Pit mix could pass off as a pure APBT but DNA says he's mixed with Staffy. People wouldn't know an APBT if it bit them on the nose but they are breeding random mutts and labeling them 'Pit Bulls' or 'pitbulls' as many of you spell it.  Only time I see them is when the ASPCA breaks up fighting rings and then, those dogs are killed.

Not in our area. It seems like all we ever see are golden retrievers.

Oh okay. It's pretty cool; at our shelter they dna test most of the dogs; so you actually know what youre buying

You got your dog from a breeder? Wouldn't that mean you pretty much added to the problem you are posting about?

like i said idk i know mine had dna done and we have papers!  maybe these people are just saying it i cant speak for them! but i know if they are in a shelter around here they do a dna test so that confirms it for them!

I've never seen that. Usually they just take a wild guess.

It's a smaller shelter; it's actually a shelter that is dedicated only to drop-offs; not dogs picked up off the street. So the relinquisment fee; goes to a dna test; unless the dog has papers; sadly; I've been seeing more and more papered dogs be dropped off recently. That being said; we only have a max of 50 dogs at a time in the shelter. So that's why we are able to do it.

Almost all the dogs at our shelter have some pit in them.
