PITBULL BREEDING INFORMATION
Every question concerning Dog breeding I answer, is directly from my mailbox. I have selected the best and most shocking and have included them for your review.
Hardly a day goes by that I don't receive some kind of question concerning breeding Dogs. Seems like everyone who owns a Pit Bull feels that their dog must be bred. Pit Bull Breeding is in the eyes of many, a fast and easy way to make a buck. I can assure you that making money breeding Pit Bulls is next to impossible. In any event, I have done many breedings and am happy to share my expertise with you and wish you success if breeding your Dog is your desire.
All content on MrPitBull is based on my personal experience and penned by my own hand! I would like to personally thank you for visiting Mr Pitbull and I hope that the Dog breeding information provided is helpful to you and your Pit Bull friend.
Anton from Savannah, Georgia asks Mr Pitbull:
Dear Mr Pitbull, I just love these dogs and would like to start a kennel, and was wondering what advice you have? I have looked at a lot of websites and you have by far the best dogs I have seen. What tips can you share with me?
FOLLOW THIS PLAN TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL PITBULL BREEDER
Hey Anton, I can't blame you for wanting to make a career with these beautiful animals. I will start by saying it is not an easy business and very few will ever make any money at it. I would suggest that you do a lot of homework. I have several post dealing with this subject. So you want to know the Dos and the Don'ts... Go to my website and read ASK MR PITBULL ANYTHING and then apply what is there and you will be on the right track.
Meditate on these lyrics and then look at the hand you are playing with and ask yourself how many ACES are you holding. Said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right. You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, Know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table. There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done. Ev'ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin' Is knowin' what to throw away and knowing what to keep...
What is interesting is that when dealing out a hand in this game, you get to see your cards before they are dealt; so pick the right ones! And if you really want to know, ask me to give you an honest evaluation.
Jen from Bethel Park, Pennsylvania asks Mr Pitbull:
Dear Mr Pitbull, Do you guys buy Dogs to breed? We have a huge litter of puppies and are having a hard time selling them. They are approaching 5 months of age and we can no longer afford to feed them. Can you help us?
DON'T GET STUCK WITH A LITTER OF PUPPIES YOU CAN'T SELL
Sorry to hear of your plight Jen. Unfortunately, selling AMERICAN PITBULL PUPPIES is not as easy and as profitable as many would like to think. The fact is, you are not the only one who has a Dog with the thought of cashing in by breeding their Dog. Sadly, this has resulted in a glut of UNSOLD PUPPIES. For this reason many Pit Bull kennels and shelters are overflowing with unwanted pets. Unless your Dog is of championship caliber, having them spayed or neutered is generally the smart choice.
Jamie from New York, New York asks Mr Pitbull:
Dear Mr Pitbull, I have a blue nose Pit Bull and I would really like to breed her, but I literally found her and her brother on the side of the road. I was wondering if I send you a couple of pictures if you might be able to help me distinguish what type of Pit Bull they are? I'm stuck between American and Razor, but leaning more towards Razor. Please e-mail me and let me know.
IF DOGS ARE NOT REGISTERED DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT BREEDING
Jamie, I would love to see pictures of the two of them. I don't know if I would be able to say what line they are for sure, but I can give you an idea, and would be happy too. It may be, if they are RAZOR'S EDGE PITBULLS that a reward is posted for their return. You may want to check with the local shelters. If they are registered, and depending on their pedigree, they may have great value to the one holding the paper. Without the paper, there is no value in breeding Pit Bulls other than being a loving pet.
Are you prepared for the expenses that could ensue? I recently lost a dog and all the pups due to complications during delivery. The vet bill was nearly a thousand dollars (and would have been a lot more had I not done so much business with this clinic). If in fact they are Razor's Edge or GOTTI PITBULLS, or one of the other top Pit Bull bloodlines, you can almost count on some problems during pregnancy and delivery. Due to the head size of the pups, many females have a hard time delivering naturally. For this reason I know some breeders that schedule a C-section for all deliveries.
Ben from Richmond Virginia asks Mr Pitbull:
Dear Mr Pitbull, Hi my name is Ben and I would like to talk to you about using Bartender with my girl Chia. Chia is an incredible looking pitbull female and will be going into heat soon. She will be turning 12 months in a few weeks and I would like to arrange to breed her to Bartender. I do not have papers for her but I think she is either a Razor Edge or a Colby from what some have said. I have included her picture for you to see. Please respond as soon as possible as she could go into heat at anytime.
BREEDING YOUR DOG TO EARLY WILL RESULT IN INJURY
Ben, Thanks for considering Bartender. When I told him of your offer he was grinning from ear to ear. Then I told him her age, and that smile quickly turned into a frown and he mumbled (if I heard him correctly) "Jail bait"! I said "what's wrong with that" and he said "would you let your 10 year old daughter marry"? It was then that I understood clearly; a 12 month old dog may be physically able to conceive as some 10 year girls are, but yet 12 months is way too young to breed a dog. Experts are united on this issue (and experts normally disagree on most issues), a female pitbull should not be bred until she is two years old.
Raymond from Defiance Ohio asks Mr Pitbull:
Hi my name is Raymond, I'm 17 I stay in Defiance, Ohio and I want to be a Pitbull Breeder, and I don't know how to get started and I been looking at your page and I want to know if u can give me some ways that is a good start?
HERE IS HOW TO GET STARTED IN DOG BREEDING
Raymond, Thanks for writing Mr Pitbull, I am happy you thought enough of my site to seek out advice. Currently there are 10's of thousands of people breeding Pitbulls. This has resulted in a serious over breeding of dogs and the DOG SHELTERS are full of unsold dogs. Additionally, out of the many thousands who get into this thinking they will make money, I bet I could count on two hands the number who actually turn a profit. For most, breeding dogs ends up costing a lot of money.
Kendrick from Bakersfield, California asks Mr Pitbull:
Dear Mr Pitbull, I just picked up a new pitbull puppy she is 10 weeks old and she is 50% Greyline, 25% Mikland and 25% Remyline. Do you think she will produce nice pups and how much can I get for them?
VERY FEW REGISTERED DOGS ARE WORTHY OF BREEDING
Kendrick, Thanks for writing Mr Pitbull Congratulations on your new addition! I bet she is adorable. Certainly her blood has the potential to create nice pups, yet a lot more is involved. A litter for instance, of 10 pitbull pups all with the same blood, may have only one pup that is of breeding quality, or all ten may be (although rarely). I would have to see the pup to venture a guess. On occasion it will only become apparent as the pup matures into adulthood. I often select out of my breedings the pup that I think has the best potential and then when they reach a year old I may decide they are worthy of breeding or they are not. Even with experience (which does help) you can never be sure when they are a pup.
Go to your local ANIMAL SHELTER and ask how many pitbull puppies they have because the owners were unable to place them even for free; you may be surprised. In fact, even those who breed their female pitbull to some of the top studs (Nationally recognized) in the country, after paying stud fees often in excess of $2500 are having a hard time finding buyers willing to pay over $500 for their pups. That is just the nature of the economy at present along with the supply and demand.
