    Hello and welcome to the forum. There are some topics that I find interesting that might interest you as well:
    Genetics behind...
    - structure,
    - temperament,
    - diseases that can run in the breed,
    - color genetics to name a couple
    ***Though color is only skin deep and doesn't effect quality of the dog.
    Here you go:
    Encyclopedia of the American Pit Bull Terrier : Genetic Disorders

    Encyclopedia of the American Pit Bull Terrier : Genetic Inheritance

    Encyclopedia of the American Pit Bull Terrier : Genetics of Color

    There is other info you may find useful there too:

  4. Thanks!

    Thank you.

    This is a good start. Now I just have to look-up the Spanish equivalent on some of these terms. (Most of my students speak Spanish). :)

    I appreciate your direction and now can create some simple Punnett Square problems relating to an animal I know alot of my students already have an interest in.
