Size of your dog...

My thread and my thoughts are derived from my experiences. When I see size in threads and its ppl asking about it - I wonder did they look into the blood work before selecting and purchasing their dog because its key in knowing what you maybe able to obtain with the key things I pointed out.

I'm not looking to push anyone into my beliefs etc simply sharing what I find to be true from my journey.

You might want to read his other threads. Th OP is very proud that he has created a "big" dog from a smaller dog. Even saying that he has a 100 lb APBT
Maybe he breeds for size idk I havnt read his other threads but im talking about this thread not the others
 
Well horse shit as it may stand to you but my beliefs has started to build me a reputation as a great breeder with a great line. I'm not looking to make millions i only look to change the negative stereotype the dog has inherited in my community. I'm not gonna get drawn into another word bout- you guys are trolls and not pick leads me to believe your lonely and starving for attention.

How are you changing the reputation exactly? And what makes you a great breeder or your line great? That they are big? Plenty of large breed dogs out there already.

Couple of points...

Inbreeding,when done correctly,doesn't "spell trouble down the line genetically".

Exercise is a component to a healthy dog.Forced exercise in a pup,prior to skeletal maturity,can lead to abnormalities.Especially in larger dogs.Retarding the desired effect.

While I'm not assuming this is what you're saying,it's difficult for many to decipher blanket statements like "exercise".

You're not going to improve the breed's reputation by breeding dogs way outside the standard size and calling it an APBT. In fact, you are breeding EXACTLY what the average Joe stereotypes Pit Bulls as- big, blue, hulking monsters. Thanks a lot.

I don't breed. I am an adopter. I have a very large pit(shelter dog so lineage is unknown) and she spent a year in a shelter after being abandoned. Luckily it was a no kill. Several people backed out on adopting her because of her size from what the shelter told me. I even thought twice when I went to get her, my daughter said "whoa she's huge" when they brought her out. I am happy I didn't back out, she is a big sweetie, but I don't think purposely breeding for large size is good for the breed.

The only part I agree with is genetics determining size and muscle substance.

After that.... if you don't like the APBT for what it is, find a different breed.

It is not an opinion that 90+ pound dogs are way out of standard and to be specifically breeding for size is detrimental to the breed.

If you want big bulky dogs, that's why "bullies" were created. :yuck:

I am just gonna chuck my two cents in now before this thread is closed

If you are such a reputable breeder wouldn't you find it a little unprofessional for your twitter account to have photos of blunts and tweet things like "How you gonna complain when the work was free and ya still made money off it" sounds a little byb to me....
