Choosing a puppy

    Hi, first I want to apologize if this topic is not in the right place.
    Like many, I want to buy a dog of this breed, I like the exterior of these dogs, the passion in their eyes,
    their energy and everything related to the breed.
    I want the dog for my companion, I do not intend to use it to pull weights, jumps or "game" with other dogs.
    I've been waiting for a dog for a long time and if I have to start another year or two, I just want to choose the right dog. And here comes the problem, since in my country there is no real breeder for pitbulls,as in 99 % of cases are not pure breed.
    That means I have to find a dog from another country. Almost nowhere on the Internet I was able to find at least a little information on how to choose a dog. So I have a few questions
    1. Are all puppies one quality? Can this be known at such a young age?
    2. Does the largest puppy necessarily remain the largest as an adult?
    3. Is there anything that can predict the size of the dog? Such as the size of the mother and father (although I have noticed large male dogs that produce quite small heirs and vice versa) or the size of the paws or legs of the dog.
    4. Does the dog's color matter? I had the opportunity to observe the development of 4 brothers -2 black and 2 red.Parents also black. In addition to the color differences as adult dogs, there were differences in the structures themselves (head shape, size, kilograms) and all were brothers born together.
    My topic would be ridiculous to many of you, but if anyone is willing he can reply.

    Best regards

    Before looking at puppies you need to research the breed. They are not a breed for everyone.
    Read about the history and what the dog was bred for in the last couple hundred of years.

    I have already done this by reaching the stage where I have decided that I want this breed and I will manage. At the moment, my concerns are related to the process of choosing a dog, so I asked these questions.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Before you choose a dog decide what you want the dog for. Then look for someone that raises the type of dog you are wanting. they are an active breed and will need plenty of exercise. They do not make a good house dog. They are aggressive so you will need to know how to handle an aggressive dog. You should know how to use a breaking stick.
