    I wish there was a way to track a DNA registry. The breeder was adamant that they were Colby bloodline on one side. However the blue one makes people say they are Neither AmStaff or APBT...but I am sure you are right. I cant wait for them to grow and fill out to see what they will look like as adults

    Steve you'll hear lots of names and bloodlines tossed around ... especially by backyard breeders. Without paperwork ... take it with a grain of salt.

    The DNA tests said to determine breed are a joke and should be viewed as entertainment only ... This is from 2008 but it's a good article about the tests ... http://thebark.com/content/can-dna-decipher-mix

    That said ... some breeders DO register their dogs DNA with their registry. But that is just to determine parents, grandparents etc etc. For instance, my Mason's sire and dam's DNA is on profile with both the ADBA and UKC.

    Great read. Well...like I said...I shall just work with them for the next few months and keep posting pics and see what I have when they mature. They already seem to have different temperaments and personalities.

    All dogs are individuals and should be assessed as such :)

    We look forward to learning and sharing with you Steve. Good Luck !!!

    blue is just a dilute of black, so any breed that has black dogs can have blue dogs. Blue is recessive however, which is why it does not show up often unless you breed for it. There are a number of blue AmStaffs and APBTs, but many AmBullies were breed for the blue color which is why it is so predominant in those lines.
