Signs To Watch Out For
OK, so you have decided to get a
Pit Bull. You like the way they look, the way they act, and how they
carry themselves. It is important for you to make sure that you are
getting a purebred Pit Bull that looks like a Pit Bull and acts like a
Pit Bull. You also want to make sure that the dog you choose will live
a healthy life. You have to be very cautious; there are lots of
unsuitable Pit Bull breeders out there who care more about their profit
than in proper breeding. Since you have chosen a special breed that has
the bad luck of having inappropriate breeders, you need to take your

a fighting dog rather than a good companion dog.

new buyers rather than before the puppies turn eight weeks old.

resources in order to raise healthy puppies. Cheap puppies are usually

raise a healthy litter. You should expect to pay an average of $300 to
$400 for a registered pet. For a show quality puppy, $400 to $600 is
considered reasonable. Male and female should cost the same.
5. Breeders who have no photos, videotapes, or pedigree of both parents
and of other relatives. An honest breeder should know about the family
background of their breed.
6. Breeders who are unfamiliar with the common health problems and
concerns associated with the breed. For example, the best Pit Bull
breeders will have their dog’s hips evaluated and screened for hip
7. Breeders who tell you that Pit Bulls are perfect for everyone. Pit
