DOG BREEDING INFORMATION
Every question concerning pitbull 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 dog feels that their dog must be bred. Dog Breeding is in the eyes of many, a fast and easy way to make a buck. I can assure you that making money breeding dogs 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.
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.
