    Yes, he said that American Pit Bull terrier owners need to become better owners!

    Other than that it was hard to focus on what he was trying to say with those stupid sun glasses!

    It's possible, but would take many generations of selective breeding (largest to largest) to achieve a dog of the same breed that is drastically larger. Generally speaking I'm super skeptical of over sized dogs claimed to be purebred.

    I have ADBA Gazettes from the mid 1990’s with advertisements of 80-100+ pound dogs supposedly pure bred APBTs…’game bred giants’. I presume many of these dogs were both ADBA and UKC registerable.

    Seems like it would be really hard to find a match for a dog that big, considering how rare they are (assuming they existed at all).

    It wouldn't be the first time purebred dogs have been bred biggest to biggest and the result of been larger-than-standard purebred specimens of the breed. I remember the Kimbertal Dobes from back in the 70s that were advertised at 31' and 120 pounds. I think selective breeding for size would work rather well in the APBT, being 2 rather different sized types of dogs are in its background , thereby providing for a tremendous genetic variation to work with. Just concentrate on those dogs that show a lot of bulldog characteristics! You can get the little terrier-type the same way.

    I doubt they were matched. Like today, they were just a status/look-at-me dog to have.

    Same here for Gazettes I have from the late 70's into the 80s. As I remember, the peds that were shown didn't have Am Staf....
