    Confused about showing dogs

    The ABKC, in its effort to include all dogs in their registry (to increase revenue), has four "classes" of American Bully. Including XL, where your interest lies. XL // The American Bully Registry

    What are good APBT sites that show what pure breed dogs look like?

    Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for ? This site has pictures of many of the gamedogs of yore. Pitbull history / Welcome to Pitbull History website

    Official source for The Complete Gamedog?

    The book is out of print, availability is low and the price has jumped considerably. I got my copy directly from the source a few years back. Put it on ebay a few months ago, after seeing the prices the book was fetching and made out quite nicely. If wanting a copy in good condition, be prepared...

    Didn't say I agreed with the information.Just giving some perspective on how wide ranging the theories can be.

    Best brush?

    Another for the Zoom Groom.Great dry and in the tub.The dog actually gets excited at the sight of the thing.

    what would you call this color?

    Definitely blue brindle.Owning a blue brindle dog,I know how hard it is to get the color to appear as it actually is,in photos.It gets washed out.

    Yes, Pit bulls Suddenly Snap... LOL (good read)

    I understand where you're coming from and the intent of your post.Just something to keep in mind...many of the members of this forum have spent years fighting the misinformation about the breed.Dealing with the repercussions of said misinformation,etc.There are real problems facing the...

    Yes, Pit bulls Suddenly Snap... LOL (good read)

    While the use of "Pibble" et al and being well versed in the breed,are not mutually exclusive.The regularity of those well versed in the breed using those terms is minuscule in comparison to those who are all rainbows and butterflies,trying to soften the breeds image.I'm willing to assume that...

    Dual Registration Question

    This may or may not be relevant...the only info I could find on the UKC site says,a dogs name can be changed unless titled or has a litter registered with the UKC.This is for dogs already registered with them.I would imagine you could name the dog whatever you wish as a new applicant ?

    Duchess is an APBT? What do you think?

    Those are more likely than not,American Bullies or random mutts with Pit Bull in the mix or characteristics thereof.The largest Pit Bulls are typically well under 80 and definitely nowhere near 100 pounds.

    Pitbull puppies

    You prompted the op to post photos of what they thought each breed was,based on their first post.They did so and reasonably well.This is what I was referencing. I think we all agree Torque is a fine specimen.While it is your opinion that he represents what a Bully should be,not all subscribe to...

    Pitbull puppies

    Torque is pretty atypical,when talking about Bullies as a whole.The dog the op chose is far more typical. Unknown lineage aside,the op did fairly well in representing the physical "type" of each breed.Though there are better representatives of each breed,the op at least has a clue.

    Size of your dog...

    Couple of points... Inbreeding,when done correctly,doesn't "spell trouble down the line genetically". Exercise is a component to a healthy dog.Forced exercise in a pup,prior to skeletal maturity,can lead to abnormalities.Especially in larger dogs.Retarding the desired effect. While I'm not...
