Recognizing An Unethical Breeder

    Here's my conundrum- I want a purebred pit bull puppy to train from the start because I've been working on my dog training skills for two years, but I CAN'T afford $1200 for a puppy.
    All of the highly qualified breeders are asking a LOT of money for their pups. Should I just go without a dog?

    Most of the highly qualified breeders I know will either give someone they trust a dog, or usually the fee isn't more than $400 (still they need to know you).

    Herbal Tea, do you want an APBT or an American Bully? I notice they are calling their dogs, APBT, but they look more like Ambullies, so, I'd go with the answer of "no." Plus they have "Home of the 'rare' Blue", which is ridiculous. Blue is not rare. I'd say run from that kennel.

    I would suggest asking this in the American Bully section, but anyway, change your search from RARE BLUE APBT's and start looking into American Bully breeders, and just so you know, blue dogs from poor breeders have bad skin problems, mine had nasty skin until I got him on good food. The price tag being high doesnt mean a good breeder. AT ALL.

    I got my beautiful puppy from a lady who rescued the Mom dog, 50$.

    I would also recommend looking up American Bully shows in your area and meeting people like that, those are better than ordering a 2000$ plus fat squat pup from some ridiculous breeder.

    What style dogs do you like? There are a few different kinds of American Bullys, Classic, Standard, XL, Extreme and Pocket.. start by looking into that and your search will be easier..

    Also what do you want your dog to do? Because some styles of American Bully are better as couch potato's than anything else..

    I would like a pit I can be active with. One that is strong and is not lazy. At puppy age of corse so when it gets older it will be healthy and such. Any suggestions of what I should look up for that type of dog? Thanks again.

    Well first off, American Bullys are NOT APBT. They are a different breed.

    Classic I think would be the best, but I am new to the world of American Bullys. They are longer legged and more athletic than some of the other one.

    Great post! I feel that being educated about choosing where to get a dog is so important. Whether it is from a good breeder or to adopt. Any person or organization that does not screen you beforehand I would be wary of. I adopted my girl. She is a pit mix. I love her. She is my first dog as an adult and first pit bull. I would not have it any other way. My friend, who has been a dog walker and trainer, bought a beautiful APBT puppy from a reputable breeder. Her dog is amazing especially with her 2 year old son. I understand why it is important to preserve this breed. There are just too many dogs in shelters somebody's got to do it... I will adopt again.
