    maybe try to attend some events around your area then. just talk to some of the people there and make friends. thats the best way to do it if you are serious about entering your dog into weight pulls.

    I agree with attending some shows. You will get a chance to meet others already into pulling that can probably point you in the right direction.

    Have you ever considered a working strain SBT bitch? They can be drivey and gamey as hell. What about going to an ADBA show in your area? Game bred dogs still have smaller strains that are still around.

    I agree with billbklyn About trying a Staffordshire bull terrier. I own 2 my male is a little over weight 40lbs but, my female is 32lbs. Staffys are very driving and excell at weight pull from what I have read. We don't do it ourselves but there is no place to do it around my area.

    yes. i would also recommend a staffordshire bull terrier. they are awesome little dogs and super athletic. its like a pit bull in a tiny package. i have been fond of every one i have met.

    A little SBT will probably be a little more uniform in phenotype than many apbt. They can also be a little more refined and removed from their history. I don't know how easy it is to find genuine working SBT outside of the UK. I agree with previous ideas that a "gamebred" (for want of a better term) dog could fit the bill, but look for nice tightly linebred dogs. If they are scatterbred, they tend to be very random in what the pups will be like. I know one breeder who's lines were such a tight family the dogs were coming out like clones, with all the same quirks but they were throwing pups between about 28-34lbs.

    I would look for a little APBT myself. Don't get me wrong, I like patterdales and SBT's, and I pull w/some great ones. But, why wouldn't you want a smaller APBT? My dog's lines are typically larger, she herself is 28# conditioned.

    You can definetely find what you are looking for in an APBT if you are persistent and do your research and are smart about it. I got to ask though...whats wrong with say a 40 or 45 lb dog? just personal preference or something?
