    You don't just breed dogs just because you have a thing for breeding...why would you add to the population of euthuanized dogs every day just to satisfy your curiosity? Don't be that selfish and ignorant please

    Great. Tons of people's dogs have a pedigree. That doesn't mean your dogs worth breeding. Fix your dog. Stop trying to add dogs to the world for your own appeasement.

    What kind of pedigree does a half pit, quarter bully, quarter rott have?

    Everyone on here does not want you to breed your dog. You're only going to contribute to the problem. You can't even tell what an apbt looks like.

    well, since you're new to the breed, then PLEASE do the B R E E D a favor and do NOT breed your dog! learn some more, first..... this world already has an abundance of "pit bulls" and every shelter across the US OF A is over crowded and riddled with them!
    and if your "friend" swears he's "pure" then your 'friend' should have NO PROBLEM producing some paperwork to ensure his, ahem purity....

    Even known mutts are still mutts. Even if your dog is APBT/SBT/Rottweiler, she's still a mutt. Please leave breeding DOGS to the professionals.

    You got your pup from a shelter, so in theory you know what the inside of a shelter looks like and you've seen the faces of dogs in there. Do you really want to bring more mutts into the world to take the homes of dogs already living and waiting for homes?? If your family wants a puppy, great. There's plenty of homeless dogs and puppies looking for homes right now.

    you and your friend both need to find something more productive to do with your time and leave the breeding to the folks who know wtf they are doing.

    Okay, now that you all have told him he shouldn't breed...now tell him in detail WHY he shouldn't. Not just the rude/judgmental commentary.

    If he knows WHY this community says not to breed (aside from "adding to shelter dogs") then he is more likely to listen.

    Or better yet, give him the criteria required to meet in order to consider breeding.

    Is the dam health tested? What has she done to prove herself "worthy" of breeding; what is she contributing to her breed? Does she work, or is she just a "pet"? Have you extensively researched her pedigree? Do you know what health issues might crop up, or any temperament issues, if they're found in dogs she's related to?

    I go with the generic shit simply because folks get butthurt when I tell them that their dogs are mutts that I would rather cull than feed. see?...there I go being rude and judgemental again.

    Well yeah, but I mean like...DON'T tell him his dog doesn't deserve to be bred because *insert reason here*. When you tell someone they cant do something they just automatically stop listening. it's just human nature.

    Instead, list the things that a dog SHOULD BE in order to be bred. Like pedigreed, titled, health tested and WHY these things are important, and WHY it's detrimental to the breed to breed "pets".

    He may do it anyway, but just telling him he's an idiot/adding to the problem/his dog's not worthy/etc. will GARUNTEE he doesn't listen.

    First, the United States is already flooded with "pittbulls" all claiming to be pure. Mysteriously without papers. I know. I have one.

    Go to any shelter and visit the dogs that will be dead within days.

    Breeding even a mutt is expensive. That is, if you do it properly and actually feed good food and care for the pups and do crazy things like vet care.

    Their dog is a pup! And in another thread they already said they got it from the shelter. It's a mix of 3 breeds.

    And the OP is probably gone from here. Face it. In about 9 months when that mixed bitch hits her first heat she will breed to the mutt across the street and probably have 15 pups that will all wind up dumped by the time they are a year old.

    And/or the mama dog and/or pups will end up dead before they even make it that far.
    Lots of people breeding without understanding what complications can come up or what to do if they do come up. Nature does not always work out; emergency vet visits are expensive and hand raising a litter takes all your time.

    agreed. I believe most members who join to ask similar questions already have their minds made up in the first place...no matter what kinda advice they get.

    More often than hand raising litters.. We see people just get rid of the pups the moment they have a problem with momma and/or pups or just normal behavior that's seen by inexperienced people as bad behavior

    Really, how often do we see "I got my pup at 4 weeks because momma didn't want to take care of them anymore"? I don't know a whole lot or anything really about breeding, nor do I claim to, but I do know that a reputable, ethical breeder will care for the pups themselves if for whatever reason momma couldn't or wouldn't. They wouldn't just get rid of them the second it took some personal effort to care for them.

    They already said they are going to breed. They just wanted to know if the experts thought the dog across the street looked pure since it was not registered.

    That's awful... I worked shelters for a long time and saw an awful lot that about killed me (dog doesn't match the couch BS) but I generally like to think people wanting to breed are well meaning just incredibly ignorant.
    I've been into AKC Aussies for a long time and have helped with litters while being mentored so I've got a lot of "you need to do x, y, and z" knowledge without necessarily having the hands on of it all. I have slept next to puppies though and had alarms set every four hours for someone to wake up and check them. Even when all goes to plan there's a lot of work and a lot of worrying.
