    Hi, my name is adam. I am new to this website and love it compared to others. I have a question. I am purchasing my first bull terrier ever in 4 weeks. They have been my favorite dog since i was 10. im 26 now and finally out the military so now i can get one. The dog below is the sire to my puppy. I met a guy from arizona and this is his male that he bred. i have a few pics of the puppy but couldnt figure out how to resize smaller. Anyways, he says it is from a mexican bloodline. they are all registered. he has a website and seems like a good breeder. there was a language barrier between us though, he didnt speak the best english but good enough. he said the sire was 63 lbs. I like the size, i dont like them too big. Too me i think its an excellent looking dog and the pups look nice too but im not a expert. I would like everyones opionion of what they think by just looking at pictures and mexican bloodlines. Any and all opionions would be appreciated. Thanks

    i know exactly who this is, ruperto from yuma. his dogs are pretty nice, the sires bite is bad (no big deal though) but i havent gotten a good look at the mother. he used this dog (the sire) from a mutual friend of his from mexicalibulls. They dont show there dogs or anything, and I saw mexicalibulls with pups with really bad umbilical hernias, just make sure you dont have one with a hernia, take a good look at the dogs if you can while your there and im sure all will be fine. the dad is pretty nice looking.

    hey, thanks. i found more pics of him on Facebook. he looks a little heavy set, like bully type with short legs. what you think? the mom looks more leggy so i think it will balance out

    By the sounds of things D he should be avoiding this guy like the plague :confused:,not once have you asked him or advised him on the health tests the parents should have before buying a pup ,surley you are learning the longer you have been in the breed D ?
    Better off buying a pup from someone thats in the breed for the breed ,rather than just to breed !
    I prefer to know that the pups are bred from fully health tested parents,and if you dont see certificates proving the health of both parents at least then walk away !

    Specifically, what health tests should be done or are extremely important with BTs?

    The most important tests both parent should have are ,Heart,kidneys and hearing Baer test !
    If both parent have not had all these tests its usually because the breeder is BYB and is just cutting costs or are hiding poor health !
    If i was buying a pup i would ask to see certificates to prove the health of both parents if not then i would walk away ,i am not saying you are guaranteed a healthy pup every time from health tested parents ,but you have a better chance !
    Who wants a pup with a heart murmur that might need a big op at some point ? when this happens its heart wrenching for the family that have bought the pup as a family pet and did not check the health of the breeding behind it :(

    cant belive there is so many people claiming to be in the breed that dont wanna suport healthy breeding , you must be behind the times in the usa ! :(
     
  11. These three tests are all inexpensive as well. They are very much worth it. Having rescued my little Mini BT "Willie"....and having to have a DUAL eye enucleation done on him due to PLL, it hits a sensitive spot with me. Shiner will have all three of these tests done regardless of wether he is used as a stud or not. I want that piece of mind. I just see it this way, if there are these three prominent issues that we KNOW are a problem in the breed, why WOULDN'T someone want to have the tests done??? They are simple and inexpensive, and it's the responsible thing to do by the breed as a whole.

    True ,good post to :)
    There are so called breeders on this thread that want to offer advice ,but run and hide their heads in shame as soon as the most important topic of health tests gets mentioned ,these are the very same back yard breeders that breed on the first heats and couldnt give a rats arse about having any tests done .
    They just cant see their not doing are breed any good at all :(

    Have you read through the thread at some of the good advise that your being given ?
    Finding out if both mum and dad are fully health ,heart,kidneys,hearing baer tested before you even consider parting with your money should be top of your lists,if they cant show you the health certificates to prove that all these tests have been done on mum and dad ,then my advise to you is walk away and buy a pup thats health is more clear .
    no mater how good you think their dogs are ,if they dont health test then they are just back yard breeders ,and breed for greed rather than to better the breed.
     
  18. If you want opinions on looks, well, that's one very adorable puppy. Dad and mom look decent. But, as mentioned above, did you ask the breeders for evidence of any health testing at all on the parents? Aside from the whole ethical/responsible breeding point, if I were spending that much on a pup, I'd damn sure be wanting to see proof that those health tests were done, and that they came back satisfactory, especially if you plan on breeding this pup down the road. You wouldn't want to lose that lil guy at a young age to liver failure or a bad heart now would you?

    BUT.....it's your money, and your business, and you will certainly do as you wish regardless of what advice is given. So good luck with your new puppy, and I hope you enjoy him. He's adorable.

    He is too cute!!! He has the same colors as Bowzer, he is a black brindle tri. When do you take him home? workingbullterrier did your bull terrier come with those tests done? Ive never know the dogs from runamuk to have any health testing.
