Are these pit bulls worth the money?

Is a mercedez benz really worth $90,000? To some, yes, but to others, no. These dogs are worth it to many, even as pets because they see the animals as being amazing. However, I don't like the overdone muscular pitbulls. These dogs are exceedingly powerful and when bred properly, are great guardians. They are naturally protective, like mastiffs( not surprising since many do have mastiff blood). However, these dogs tends to lack stamina and endurance required for other fields of work, such as hog dogging so I wouldn't pay that much for one.

Neither overly muscular ambullies nor mastiff mix banddogs are pit bulls.
The APBT is NOT a good guardian and is NOT naturally protective. They are bred to be friendly to EVERYONE, so if you get an APBT and expect it to be a guard dog, you'll be poorly mistaken.
My dogs were free, and if you walk down the street I'm sure you'll see half a dozen pit bulls. Why pay multiple thousands of dollars on a dog when you'll be spending multiple thousands of dollars on them within the first few years of their life? Doesn't make sense to me.
 
In my opinion. Go meet the pups, and find out if they're worth the money. I believe some dogs are worth the money, if I was going to buy Taz as an adult, and that was the price, damn right I'd pay it, but for others, maybe not. Check them out, you might find something you like. Also, they are American Bullies.

When BSL comes knocking on your door, yes they are.

I personally wont spend that much on a dog unless for showing etc Just wanted to see what all you guys thought of the price if they are worth it cause the bloodlines and all. I guess if i was pretty wealthy then i wouldn't hesitate at all to buy a couple..;)

My answer is no as well. They are good looking bullies but I would not pay that much for a dog. To each their own, though. :)

Just because AC and legislators are ignorant doesn't mean that we as responsible pit bull owners have to be.
If you're going to be spending $2500 on a pit bull, you better know what you're getting, and you better be prepared for whatever it is. An APBT is different than an AmBully is different than an AmStaff is different than a banddog etc etc etc. Each has it's own specialties and difficulties, and if you're looking for something in particular or trying to avoid something, especially if you're going to be spending large sums of money on a worthy prospect, condemning yourself to the ignorance of the makers and enforcers of BSL is foolish.

I assure you, I know the difference. Look at my previous posts on different threads, especially the threads where people were asking on making them more defensive, whopper lines, etc. I know the difference between an ambully, bandogges, and a true apbt. I typed in "muscular pitbulls" because the ambully goes by these: american bully pitbull, bully style pitbull, low riders, xl pitbulls, xl bully, bullies, muscle pits, muscle bullies, muscular pitbulls, bully pits, amerian bully pitbull terrer, etc. It's one of the slang I'm accustomed to hearing so I use them sometimes too in my posts.

Very true. I wish people would just call things what they are.... It would save everyone a lot of time. But if the general public somehow began to know the difference between an APBT and and AmBully, it won't happen in my lifetime.

Let's start with the public distinguishing between other non apbt derivative breeds first, like say the american bulldog, cane corso, presa canario, dogo argentino, staffy bull, etc.
 
Ofcourse there is a difference, but now adays, a Pit bull, is whatever looks like a pit bull mix. Obviously the responsible owners know the difference, but the majority do not. All "pit bull" owners should follow the same procedure with their dogs, because if an Amstaff owner doesn't, and something happens, the dog is a pit bull, bottom line.

Cute dogs, but its just another byb trying to make a buck. They don't even have pics of the parents up.

They are just trolling for some suckers, and I am certain they will find them.

I've always been told something is worth whatever your willing to pay for it, I've personally never paid more than $1500.

BTW, those will not be XXL. yes big dogs, but XXL is tall. How do people that breed dogs not know that. These pups are friggin CUTE, but look just like mine did. And 400 dollars later they look AMAZING! try to find cheaper pups!
 
Ill tell you what, the kennel has one thing going for them that might actually be worth taking a look at them, they are tight with iron cross kennels,and as far as bully breeders go they are really good, so with that said the buyout option always makes me walk away from a kennel, how are they going to sell someone a pup for that much money and than give the public the option to offer them more and buy the pup out from under you..... shady, plus although the dams statistics are shown (although her ped is blank) there is no info about the dad except that he is the "biggest mac 10 son ever" basically the breeder should be allot more forthcoming with the info if they are going to ask 2-4000 dollars a pup, Im not saying that these pups are or arent worth the money, I would probably walk away (but in fareness.... the pups are cute and the parents look decent, although their 130# stature is mostly just being over weight and or being on supplements so dont expect your pup to be that big on the scales if you feed it normal and exercise him)

Not unless they come trained to cook you breakfast. The fact that the color is the main selling oint for this breeder causes concern as to how knowledgeable they are. Never buy a dog based on color, because 9 times out of 10 that is exactly what you are going to get, a dog that has been bred with color as the only criteria, not soundness, or temperament or health.

any breeder that breeds for size or color isnt worth a damn and these guys 2 big selling points is size and color

Personally, Never dealt with ICK. But just being "tight" with them doesn't make them good breeders.
