Anyone a puppy breeder in GA?

    Anyone here a breeder of Pit Bull puppies with the sire and dam with awards in UKC? How much would the puppies cost and are you near North Georgia?

    I doubt anyone here is going to give out a breeder referral.

    That said, what "awards" in UKC? There are many. Are you also aware that many responsible breeders won't necessarily own both parents of a litter? What is it that you want the dog to do? Since you specifically mentioned UKC, are you wanting an actual APBT (no modern Amstaff blood) or are you really looking for an AmStaff or AmStaff mix?

    If I recall, you mentioned wanting a service dog. Price is going to be the least of your worries, and you'll probably have to travel outside of your local area to find a dog suitable for service work. I would recommend looking for an older puppy or young adult dog to evaluate rather than trying to start a puppy that may not even turn out to be suitable for those purposes.

    Probably weight pulling would be good. I would go with a bully as they are quite likely to be a lot mellower than an APBT. I am willing to go around 100 miles in any direction from where I am so that I can find a decent and trustworthy breeder.

    There is a test called the Volhard Puppy Aptitude test (PAT) they give after the 49th day of a puppies life and it is quite accurate in predicting what they will be like as adults.

    There is absolutely zero scientific basis for this "testing" nor of the accuracy of it. You can get a general idea, but there is no evaluation you can do at 4 weeks old (puppies are just BARELY starting to develop their personalities at this age) that will predict whether a dog will be suitable for any type of service work. And, depending on exactly what you need a service dog FOR, there will be specialized requirements for traits that won't be apparent for quite awhile.

    If you're looking for a Bully, then you're not looking for a Pit Bull by ANY stretch of the imagination. Before you start looking for a breeder, you may want to actually figure out for certain what specific traits you want in a dog and what breed could potentially meet a majority of them. As far as "awards," you said "probably weightpull would be good." But you sound like you're not really sure here either.
