    His dad certainly looks bully, but mom doesn't. I wish I could go and meet the mom. I've only seen pics. The people had to move into the wife's parents' house and the dog was not there. This was a nice house though, .40 acre lot with pool and 3000 sq ft house nice.

    UKC PR dogs "can" be 100% pure APBT. About 8 years ago i owned a few, an traced there peds back past 7 gen. YEs almost all dogs were show dogs in the UKC ring, but a few were dual reg with adba.

    I agree. There are definitely purebred APBT that are "PR".

    I think the reason so many people see dogs that don't appear to be pure with the "PR" title is, because those same people use that as a marketing ploy. Someone who doesn't know what it means, thinks their dog is a ch. or something like that, so, they get the dog.

    TRue i know a lady that use PR in here adds and the word show quality, to sell her dogs. She tells me im so crazy for not selling my dogs, and she hasnt ever been to a show nor would she evr think of showing her mutts. I do show in ADBA but only 1 or 2 shows a year. But i havent sold a dog in a very long time. Last dog was over 6 years ago i think and it was for one bag of food.

    Sure they can, it really all falls apon the ethics of the breeder in question of said dogs. All my dogs are "PR" dogs and there is no doubt that my dogs are pure APBT. My dogs are all dual registered ( ADBA & UKC ), now even tho they do not conform to UKC standards, my breeder still registers them with the UKC anyways just in case an owner wants to explore that venue. I think the real problem today is as mentioned, "PR" is used more as a selling tool and some rather unscrupulous breeders have indeed hung papers to further thier peddling ways. I myself would never reccomend buying a dog just because it has a "PR" ped alone, but rather look into the background of the breeder and said dog that is for sale.

    Purple Ribbon bred simply means that:
    all 14 dogs in its three generation pedigreeare UKC registered.

    Being PR bred has nothing to do with the color or honestly even the quality of the dog. Some are not even from show stock at all unless you go very far back in the peds. It depends on the individual dog and the breeders.

    I've seen bybs claim they have CH Bloodlines when there is one or two maybe 6+ generations back ion the ped. generations back. LOL

    thats beacuse they just started to register the ambully as its own breed with the ABKC....the breeder is either just trying to make money or he doesnt know any better
