    That's hard to say. You have to take a look at the stock in which they are coming from. But to my Understanding the purple ribbon is not realy a line, it is more of less saying you don't have to worry about the dogs ( being bred with other dogs that aren't registered) They are accredited. Purple ribbon dogs are usually more show stock (blue, fawn, gray, shiny black colors).

    YK2, that is impossible to answer. There are soo many things to consider. Parents, past health issues, BREEDER QUALITY, pedigree etc. If all you want is a pet, you can find a pup that will be happy w/ at a rescue/shelter.

    All PR means is the dogs have been registered for 7 generations. It says nothing to their health or temperament. In fact, some dogs will serious illnesses and health defects have been PR because all it takes to register a dog with the UKC is showing the parents were registered.

    Please, Please, Please do more homework before you decide on buying. PR doesent really mean all that much. Like Woody said, you have to go look at the dogs and their pedigrees, health etc.. Many times BYB's use things like PR to make thier poorly bred dogs sound legit.

    Kinda off topic, but can someone tell me why the "PR" is really even noted on a ped? I realize what it means...but at the same time it has no real purpose and doesnt seem to help anyone but the peddlers. Its just one of those things id think wouldnt really matter if it was done away with, and id think the registry in question would have recognized this. Not like it carries much value on any ped to anyone w/ knowledge in this breed, and seems to confuse a first time buyer/owner.

    Can a dog that isn't 100% APBT get a paper that shows that it is APBT UKC PR?

    If someone hangs papers, then yes, they could.

    What does 'hang papers' mean?

    I am tempted to send in a check to see the lineage of my dog now. I know it doesn't look like a true APBT since he is short and has thick hind quarters....but curious to see if I can find the history of him. All I have are pictures of the mom, dad, and granddad. I tried that online pedigree site but I'm not paying $30 to see what their site has.....might be a waste of money.

    most of the purple ribbon dogs ive seen are big headed ass mutts

    Hanging papers means that someone bred Dog A to Dog B, but put down on the paper work that Dog C was the sire, instead.

    Here's an Example. Let's say Dog A is a Mastiff, and Dog B is an APBT. You couldn't send the papers in, it would be a mutt, right? So, the person put Dog C (which is an APBT) down and so the pups are registered as APBTs, but in actually, they still are Mastiff/APBT mixes.

    Papers are only as honest as the person filling them out.

    Thank you for the explanation. See, my dog doesn't have a huge head or wide chest, but is a blue. He is 8 months now and 59 lbs. I guess I'll pay for the history and see if anyone has heard of the owners or dogs.

    sounds like to me what they would call a Classic or Old School Bully

    There is a classic style bully? More and more I read, less I know.

    RE is hit and miss. Sometimes from my understanding it is still an Amstaff bloodline, but Gotti is always an Ambully bloodline, because Gotti was an Ambully. :)
