Working/Sporting BT breeders

    Are there any? As I had to move to a place that has BSL I'll have to wait for any pit bull type dog. I like Bull Terriers but as with any breed of dog with more function minded beginnings I really prefer going with a kennel that breeds primarily for function as opposed to one that breeds primarily for show/looks. I like to do my research well ahead of time so if anyone has some names to drop, I will be appreciative.
     
  2. Not too many that I am aware of in the US, and I've done some pretty extensive digging. I have indeed spoken to a total of three folks who own BT's that work in some way either hunting or pulling or bitework, and very rarely do they let pups go when they have any, and if they do, they screen those interested very thoroughly. Most of the BT's that are linebred on working stock are even more driven than our 'average' BT's and can be very challenging to handle, especially in an enviornment where they may not be kept very busy. Most people gasp when they hear that we use our BT's as catch dogs, it's crazy.

    I have yet to hear about an actual "working" breeder- however you can look for a good breeder that does sports like agility,lure coarsing ect.
    while those are not working dogs-they do still need the drive and energy to be able to get up and go!
    Chimera didnt come from a working line-she came from a show/pet only breeder, but i can tell you what, she was MADE to be a working dog-its incredible her motivation,drive, agility and her abiltiy to keep going, shes obsessed with moving and going full speed-i honestly beilive that dog would be the type to run herself to death if i let her.
     
  4. Yeah Shiner is AKC, off of dogs that were shown in the conformation ring, but he is making a phenominal all purpose 'working' dog. Sometimes good dogs are where you find 'em.

  6. I like the looks of their dogs. I THINK they primarily do bite work with theirs.

    Nice to see people being active with their dogs though. Looks like they have two litters on the ground if I read right.
