    Rowdy is a damn good looking dog! He got my vote for dog of the month , and it was a hard choice. They all looked good. I didn't even want to vote , just celebrate the winner!

    Good luck to Rowdy as well as all the particpants. They are all winners in my book.

    @ Galadriel : Damn it! We are arguing! :D

    Edog here is a link to the panel we used at the vet i worked for in ATL

    http://www.wisdompanel.com/

    Now this company only had Am Staff/ Staffy in the "pit bull" type. Not APBT. I they use AKC dogs. My problem is that there are many dog breeds not recognized by the AKC.

    That is the nicest thing i have heard all day and you have no clue how much i needed and appreciate that dawg. Thanks!

    I support 110% ANY DOM selected. I do not see a single one that i would not be proud and very damn lucky to have as their human friend.

    By the way, if you check the nomination thread, you will find that i did not even nominate Rowdy. I selected 10 others.

    @ CynthiaATL yep, that was the one i saw that did Staffy.

    All Kinda Crap!
    The DNA test. :D

    Honestly , only the ADBA is a " Pitbull " , registry , and even they have lost my respect. Necassary evils maybe , neccassary? That's arguable! :D

    Many have lost the context of the breed. The dog makes the papers. I had one of the best bred ( In their Opinion ) dogs , and thought it was crap. Gave it back to the breeder. I was so disgusted , I didn't even ask for a refund.

    As a pet , only the owner / feeder can judge.

    Papers to an APBT are about as useless as a 1 legged man in an A$$ kicking contest! ( IMO ) They are for the owner.

    I have to be honest I'm not sure what you would classify my pup as a rescue or BYB..lol I resucesd her from Cleveland April 10 this year she had to be gone that coming Monday or she would have had to go the pound cuz of the BSL shit they have so the guy was trying to find her a home ASAP and I felt bad enough to help as far as where he got her who knows. I have tried many times over to help some of the pitty type dogs in the Pitt area and was not allowed due to the fact that I do not have a 6-10ft fence around my yard and the fact that I have a child under the age of 10 yrs. Oh yea update on Kiara (15 wk pit pup) we made it through the weekend with no accidents and we are slowly catching on with the leash issue as well YEA!! I know don't get excited yet...lol THANKS TO YOU ALL WHO GAVE ME ADVICE WITH HER!!! And I got ahold of the guy that I got her from and he is looking into what she truely is, he said that he would get ahold of the gguy he bought her from to find out for sure.

    I thought I posted in this thread before but I guess not. Here goes...

    Jazz - rescue (Animal Placement Bureau-Lansing MI)
    Chopper - BYB - before I knew any better. His temperment and health are great so maybe I got lucky!!!

    My next pup will be from a reputable breeder without a doubt.

    Lucy was from the shelter...
    Bully was from accidental BYB (who actually rescued his mom when she was pregnant and didn't know it!)
    Chaos is my foster who I might keep, his daddy got him from a BYB and feed Ol'Roy so we've done alot of education there too!

    My next (which won't be for MANY years) will probably either be from a good breeder or a shelter but I want a 8-10 week old.
     
  13. Freddie was from a reputable breeder and so was Tyi.

    We got Boss from a terrible byb, but if we hadn't have had him he would have started training and then been sold into a fighting ring. We met both the dog and the bitch and both were nice dogs and had never actually been used for fighting. We had him at 3 and half weeks because they start training them at 4 weeks using horrible methods. He wasn't even eating puppy food and I stayed up for a week syringing him puppy milk! When we got there they had taken the bitch away and were giving them cows milk with crushed dijestive biscuits! Please don't bash me and tell me how psycotic he's gonna turn out because of his breeding, I'm just being honest about how we got him. I know DNA has a lot to do with temperment but so does training them to be DA at 4 weeks old. We got lucky with him but I wouldn't do it again.

    Brodie was rescued from a local shelter about a month ago. He had a sponser there so his first round of pup shots, rabies vax and neuter was already taken care of.

    where lucky got me

    i choose A although lucky isnt from an abusive home he would have ended up in one if i hadnt taken him in im sure, why do i say this because a local thug who got his sister also wanted him he kept his sister in a dark room and didnt feed her until she died of starvation all in an attempt tp make her viciuos.<sp> the lady who gave me lucky was moving out of her place and couldnt take the two eight week old pups (that she had since they were about 3weeks smh) with her. she knew i was looking around for a pup and gave him to me. i wanted both but my mother has this thing against female dogs. lol. i wish so bad that id had his sis she would have been 1 spoiled brat right about now lol.

    I think this is an old thread, but i will add mine. Madeline is a rescue from the shelter, day of possible euthanasia. Bella was the runt of a byb that claimed razor's edge/gotti lines, she kept escaping the house, but they kept her out of the whole litter, until they had to move and couldn't keep Bella, after 9 months of her being with her mother pit. I met the people through a friend of a friend, fell in love w Bella in the first 2 seconds, and took her with me that day. Boy, did i fall in love with this girl. We never looked back. I do occasionally hook up with them so she can see her mother. She loves it. My Madeline took on the role of Bella's mother. It was meant to be:)

    I guess this thread is old, but I like the stories so I thought I would share mine.
    at Fort Bragg, they sell dogs on the side of the road CONSTANTLY.. I usually never stop.. telling myself.."bad..you dont know their breeding" well, I stopped cause it was really cold that day and they were in a crate with no blankets and I was going to let the lady have a piece of my mind.. well when I got there there were 2 puppies left and I fell in love with Guinnness and bought him and got him out of the cold the other puppy was the one they wanted to keep. My non pitbulls were obtained differently.. My Great Dane was originally from a reputable breeder, but we bought her off her first family.. They didnt realize how big Great Danes got and they lived in an Apartment. I got my English Bulldog from the Fort Bragg Animal shelter.. she was going to be euthanized.. and I couldnt let her little scrunchy face go.
