Should I breed him with my female pit bully?

The thing is this. What have these dogs done to make them worth breeding? Those that have paid attention to my past posts know that I could care less about titles and whatnot, and I have nothing against crossbred dogs , my yard is full of them, but there has to be a purpose besides to have more pups. Your gym isn't papered, (which I don't care much about either ) so she likely hasn't competed in anything, and I haven't seen you post anything about her working so what makes her stand out from the crowd enough to reproduce? Offhand I would say no, even when the male gets old enough I don't see a reason to breed these dogs.
 
Ok..I'll start over. The reason I asked about breeding my American bulldog and bully when the time was right is because someone mentioned they would make a good hybrid breed. I honestly had no intentions on breeding them together.

Good explanation, clear and not snobby about titles and papers and so on, but laying out your criteria in a nice way. Not that I was ever planning on breeding, the world has enough random puppies, but the way you've set it out here is good ammo should I get into that conversation with someone who is considering it.

Breeding two animals of the same species does not make a hybrid, and that makes no sense altogether. The only thing that's going to make is what it usually makes, which is shelter bait.

If we were talking about dogs who did something that would be crossbred for a purpose like working, that'd be different but even then, dunno what working purpose you'd get out of breeding two dogs with no wind

I just can't understand why people with NO idea about bully breeds, or ANY breed in general, are so inclined to breed their dogs. It blows my mind how you think it would be a good idea.

DON'T DO IT. Spay your bitch and let her live a happy life without worrying about puppies and all the health complications that could come with getting her pregnant.

I highly doubt it would be the first time a bully, and A. Bulldog, had been breed together.

So no... Nothing special about either dog other then you care for them.

Hell, I have had people already ask me if I intend to breed my pup, because of his looks alone. And my answer is "absolutely not." Even though he is by far the most well trained pup I ever been around. And has completed his basic obedience class, and has been in the intermediate class for about two months now. Even with my hopes of making him a service dog I STILL wouldn't consider it. He's not a pure breed either, he's half Presa Canario and half APBT which he himself does not have papers but I do have both parents papers.

Anyways, food for thought.

I really hope you mean that. If you took a trip to the shelter, you wouldn't want to do that. Whenever someone says something like that to you, tell them to go adopt one! It's just wrong.

Ok, I, before you think about breeding, go take a week and volunteer at the animal shelter. Ask to be in when they euthanize the dogs and see just how many are pits. Look at your local Craigslist for pit or pit mixes and see how overwhelmed they are of them. See how many are running around town as strays.

As as a adopter of 2 abandoned pits I'd hate to see more brought in to this bored just for vanity or curious it's. Please spay and neuter them. For he dogs sake not just yours.
