    if you don't already have papers and him registered proving his pedigree then he is most likely not full blooded anything. But, there is no way of knowing. Looks don't tell much really, he doesn't look full to me but he's cute none the less. welcome

    I have no doubt that he is full of blood but being a an APBT not so sure about that one.

    No matter what your dog is and from the picture the dog clearly looks like a mix. You never want to register with a government agency unless you have to. Just say rescue of mixed origins. I do have to disagree a little that looks don't tell much, in a lot of the cases I have seen they sometimes tell me more than the phoney baloney papers some try to pawn off.
    In most places where they are registering pit bull ownership it is in your own best interest to claim any dog without a pedigree is anything but a pit bull.

    What do you mean by register? You can't register with ADBA or any other reputable registry unless the sire and dam are registered. If you mean with a county or state I would take a pass on that. But, that's just my opinion.

    Without papers you will never know what breeds make up your dog. But yes, your dog is filled with blood just like every other dog. The correct thing to ask is if your dog is pure bred. Which if you don't know, no one knows and you can't know with out a pedigree.

    He's a cutie. Without papers there is no telling. By appearance, although he is young, he appears mixed. I have a mix, and two unknowns...lol...no problem with that.

    If you don't know than the answer is probably no. Just from looking at him and wagering a guess I'd say...no.

    The only thing papers are good for is wiping your ass with.

    Papers are good for people who care about the origin of their dog's genetics. It's also helpful for people who want specific traits in their dogs.

    Yeah but you dont need papers for that

    How so Tanner? A pedigree that displays many generations of your dog's history definitely assists in predicting specific traits. Although nothing is certain it is no doubt more predictable when you know every ancestor of your dog. Unless your talking about something else, i am not sure why you said you don't need papers to know the origin of your dogs genetics.

    Im speaking more so if you already know your dogs background.

    Here's the thing about papers. I am guessing there are some circles where people are not that concerned with papers from a registry, but they know well what bloodlines and backgrounds their dogs come from. For them papers are not necessary.
    Certainly if you are into showing dogs, papers are important, and there can be other reasons as well. The most important key in knowing what bloodlines your dog has or if they are indeed, an APBT, is to acquire that dog from a REPUTABLE breeder. Let me repeat, REPUTABLE, REPUTABLE, REPUTABLE. Papers alone will not assure anything. There has been so much paper hanging with this breed its ridiculous, at least where I live. People do it without giving it a second thought, for them its the norm.

    No. Acquire the dog from an ETHICAL breeder. ETHICAL, ETHICAL, ETHICAL. Having a good reputation does not necessarily mean a breeder is actually honest, or trustworthy.

    I stand corrected, ETHICAL, ETHICAL ETHICAL, agreed, that's perhaps a better description of what I'm trying to say.
