Anti-BSL Calendar Needs Your Photo Submissions!

Owners, Breeders and Dogs Against Breed Discrimination needs your help to create 2 anti-BSL calendars which will be sold online and at this seasons shows.

We are planning two categories: All American Family Dog and Patriotism can be Purdy. (working titles)

All Submissions are subject to the general guidelines below:

* All photos submitted must be the property of the submitter.
* All photos must be 1024x768 resolution or larger.

"All American Family Dog" calendar guidelines:

In addition to the above general guidelines photos submitted for this category must include at least 1 American Pit Bull Terrier and 1 child. The presence of an American Flag would be appreciated.

"Patriotism can be Purdy" calendar Guidelines:
In addition to the above general guidelines photos submitted for this category must include at least 1 American Pit Bull Terrier and 1 woman. Photos submitted are suggested to include patriotic symbolism (flags, costumes, etc) and be done in tasteful "pinup" fashion. This calendar will ideally be provocative but not lewd.

Anyone who submits a photo will receive a free calendar and bumper sticker upon completion of the calendar. So please remember to include the mailing address on your waiver where you would like these items sent.

Lets have some fun and take some pictures to support Anti-BSL efforts! I think this can be lots of fun and look forward to seeing what you'll think up!

Do know someone who breeds American Pit Bull Terriers? When you ask them how they are bred have they ever told you they where Rednose, Brindle, Gatormouth, Shovel head or any of the above mixed with Colby? If they have RUN as fast as you can. These are exactly the kind of people you do not ever want to buy any breed of dog from. These descriptions simply mean one thing; They have no idea how their dogs are truly bred or where they come from. Let me first explain to you what a bloodline is.
When breeding any animal, one of, if not the single most important step is the selecting of quality stock and using this stock to cultivate a gene pool of acceptable traits. There are two forms of bloodlines. There is one that is formed based on the breeder’s signature type of selective standard and one that is based on specific traits that a family of animals may have. For instance if you are breeding racing horses you would want to start with the fastest horses you can find or afford and breed them to a standard of your liking as a breeder. This is a bloodline based on the breeder’s standard and most times named after the breeder. The breeder may only select a certain type of horse that performs exactly to his liking. He may like a horse that starts off slow and comes from behind. And so he will fill his breeding program with just that type of horse. After so many years horses bearing his name will begin to use exclusively that style of racing. So if the breeder is Mr. Wilson and his prize horse is Dennis the Menace, Dennis the Menace will be known as a Wilson bred horse. When someone says they have a Wilson bred horse you will expect this horse to start slow and come from behind to win. Are we following so far? I am using horses as an example to show you that this is not limited to dogs or even Pit Bulls. It is simpley more of a problem because you cannot buy a racehorse of any bloodline in the paper for $50. I digress and will move on to the second type of bloodline.
The second type of bloodline is one that is based off of a certain animal and his or her children. This animal is what the breeder would consider his perfect specimen. If I have a horse that is an expert at starting slow and coming behind to win rather than finding more like him, who may or may not be as good as him, I would use him to build a family of horses that carry his traits on through his sons and daughters. I would take my best mares to this horse in hopes to create a colt that can replicate or out perform his sire. These children who mimic their parents winning traits will be tightly or loosely woven into a family of racehorses that will be known for those specific traits. Let’s say Mr. Wilson’s best horse Dennis the Menace was the horse used to create this bloodline. It would be known as a Dennis the Menace horse. People would know that this horse is related to that original horse and expect it to carry those traits. Weather it will actually carry those traits or just have the name in the pedigree is an article for another day. Also some breeders also use a combination of both types of breeding. Some use none at all (this I would not suggest). Now that you a basic understanding of how bloodlines are created let’s get back to the nitty gritty.
First let’s talk about using a color to describe how a dog is bred. If you ask a breeder how his or her dog is bred and he tells you what color they are………………………please you have the right to feel insulted. Actually I would hope that you where insulted. Color is not an indicator of how a dog is bred. Certain bloodlines can only be a certain color but all dogs of that color are not from those certain bloodlines. The red rednose trait is a recessive trait and by scientific law when two recessive traits are crossed they can only make more of the same. In short red x red=red. The Old Family Rednose line of dogs are a bloodline based on a number of dogs that happened to be red rednoses. Since the dogs used to form this line all carried this recessive trait the line remained that color. Not simply because the breeders just wanted red dogs. Every rednose dog is not an Old Family Rednose. Too many people who don’t know any better fall for this tactic used by unknowledgeable breeders. With the exception of two red dogs, a litter of dogs can come out in just about any combination of colors. The more ancestors in the parents that are one color will raise the % of that color but it will not guarantee that color. Two black dogs can very well have a brindle pup. If that pup is from the Brindle bloodline, then are the parents from the Black bloodline? When someone tells you what color they breed in means simply this, they do not know how their dog is bred and they have done no research into the breed of dogs they are selling.
If someone is using colors to describe how a dog is bred they do not understand what a bloodline is. If they do not know what a bloodline is they do not know much more about the pup they are trying to sell to you. Would you let a man who doesn’t know what a tire iron is change your tires?
If people tell you their dogs are Gatormouth it simply means the dog has a large mouth. If they tell you they have a shovel head Pitt, they are describing the slope in their dogs head from tip to snout (resembling a Bull terrier). My personal favorite is the Ridgemouth based on the fact that the dog has ridges inside his mouth (all mammals do). Ok people pretty cut and dry here. Any APBT can have any one or all of these traits. It has nothing to do with how they are bred. In fact all of these things are considered bad traits to have in the American Pit Bull Terrier. There is a breed standard for this breed of dog and these two traits go against that standard. Just as people advertising how big their “PITTS” are goes against common sense. These dogs are Terriers. The terrier is in fact a small dog. If a breeder is telling you how BIG his terrier is, you should be wary. If I told you how small my Great Danes where or how black my Dalmatians are you would not spend money with me. Then why would you give your hard earned money to someone who has no clue how his dogs are bred and what they should even look like.
In conclusion,
As you can see this stuff is pretty cut and dry. If you truly cared about the breed of dog you own why wouldn’t you learned the basics of that breed. These are not bloodlines it is simply a description of how the dog looks. It does not even guarantee that the dog is in fact a Pit Bull to start with and based on the very description of the made up bloodlines, there is a high chance that they are not. A Bloodline is based on traits. It is based on a certain selective process. Every breeder has its own process and every family has its own. So ask them; what are the traits that their bloodline carries? If they tell you that they are Loyal, courageous, intelligent and people friendly tell them try again. Because every American Pit Bull Terrier is expect to carry that standard regardless of their bloodline. Ask them to tell you something you don’t know.
This article may offend some. I hope it does because Breeders of this great breed have been offended by the hijacking of our great breed by people who know nothing about them. That was not the intent though. The intent is to educate and if we ruffled a few feathers that would be a bonus. Hopefully people will use this to try and find out more about this breed and avoid breeders who are too lazy to do the same.

the dream continues.....

What are they experts on?

“Anybody who says there isn’t a problem here isn’t looking,” Kumpf said afterward. What led Kumpf to believe dog fighting is happening here is he saw dozens of plastic blue barrels set up in people’s backyards with circular dirt paths around them.

“The flyover is one of the easy ways to identify dog fighting areas,” Kumpf’s spokesman Jeff Kursman said. “If you’re flying over you look for blue plastic barrels. They use them as shelters for the dogs because they’re inexpensive and rugged. They are the housing of choice.”

Laura Bevan, Humane Society of the United States spokeswoman, said there are many levels of dog fighting, including street fighting. The agency estimates there are 40,000 hobbyist and professional dog fighters in the United States. It’s difficult to catch dog fighters in the act, she said, because by the time authorities arrive to the site they’re gone.

“Any community that has gang bangers probably has street dog fighting,” she said. “Neighbors don’t complain because they are afraid of these gang bangers.”-

This is the deductions HSUS experts use to accuse people of illegal activities.

So basically if you use blue barrel dog houses you are a dog fighter.

So all of these people who do not own Pitbulls would be dog fighters?

"It's NaturalDogs prefer to sleep in shallow, curved holes. The curved interior surface of the K-9 Kondo effectively satisfies this natural "nesting" preference. As a result, dogs take to the K-9 Kondo better than any other type of dog house. And they stay more comfortable, too."

Most of the above sites say the same thing. As far as the gang banger comments we know what that is code word for. Surprisingly the HSUS never seems to go after GANGBANGERS. They are going after 60 and 70 year old breeders who live far away from anyone. So now understand that if you have bad people where you live you will be punished for their actions. You will be accused f dog fighting if there are gangs living near you.

"Animal abuse and child abuse are closely related. "

They have a whole fact sheet on this. But what they don't show you is this.

David Garcia: Head of the SPCA-TX and creator of ANIMAL PRECINCT.

Count 1, kidnapping while armed with a deadly weapon; and Count 2, rape while armed with a deadly weapon. Convicted and sentenced in 1973 Paroled in 1979

Wow he kidnaps a child rapes her and did 6 years mean while he was trying to hand out ten year sentences for bogus animal cases.

"Garcia has been convicted on multiple felony and misdemeanor DWI's in several states, and has a warrant for his arrest in Arizona."-animal crackers

John Goodwin: Head of animal fighting issues HSUS

{Goodwin himself has been arrested and convicted for being the ringleader of a gang that vandalized fur retailers in multiple states during the 1990s. The animal-rights newspaper Animal People News profiled Goodwin in 2000, noting that he “gleefully announced a string of Animal Liberation Front mink releases and arsons against furriers and fur farms” while a “spokesman” for the underground terrorist group.

Goodwin also fielded press inquiries after a Petaluma, California, slaughterhouse arson in February 1997, and shocked the public with his comments on the March 1997 arson at a farmer’s feed co-op in Utah. Referring to a fire that caused almost $1 million in damage and could easily have killed a family sleeping on the premises, Goodwin told The Deseret News: “We’re ecstatic.” } activist cash

What about the attack on the families of the UCLA researchers by animal rights groups. One man was pummeled in front of his family and an old woman was nearly killed.

"Los Angeles Fire Department investigators said the device -- which failed to ignite -- was left at the wrong house, a residence actually occupied by a 70-year-old woman and her male tenant. The address was not disclosed. "-

So what say they about the connection between animal rights and harming human beings?

And then there is the rumor that a certain HSUS worker in Arkansas was arrested in 2005. We'll get back to you when we find out all the details.

In the words of former President George Bush, "[A]sset forfeiture laws allow [the government] to take the ill-gotten gains of drug kingpins and use them to put more cops on the streets."

This was an idea with good intentions gone bad. This is being used against breeders as we speak and we must be heard. The Patricks where not only found not guilty but the judge did not even feel like there was a case against them. Still they stand to loose their home because Pima county is using laws ment to go after drug dealers to assists the Humane Society of the United States and themselves in this act of bitter vengeance.

If you are just now tuning in the Patrick's where accused of dog fighting in early 2008. Their animals were seized 94 killed 20 or so handed out to others. Some of those where even later disposed of by "Pit bull expert" Diane Jessup. The judge found the couple not guilty and in fact stated the he felt they never had intention of such activities and pointed to contracts stating the dogs or pups where not to be sold for fighting and the fact their was no evidence of any dog fighting activity.

The couple wins big hooray tears of joy ect ect. Right? WRONG
Patricks had to return home to figure out if they were going to loose their home or not. Why? Because even after it is proven that you have not committed a crime you still have to come up with enough money for a bond on your property and a lawyer or you loose. EVEN IF YOUR INNOCENT

don't believe me check this out seems like alot but please read.

"Concerned about the the broad effect of federal forfeiture laws, Henry Hyde (R-Ill., House Judiciary Committee Chairman) and John Conyers (D-Mich., the senior Democrat on the Committee) teamed up to introduce the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act in a rare display of bipartisan unity. The Representatives were concerned about the problem of police using seized property or funds to finance their own operations. As Bob Barr (R-Ga.) put it, "In many jurisdictions, it has become a monetary tail wagging the law enforcement dog." Testifying before the Judiciary Committee, Willie Jones of Nashville, TN, gave an example of this abuse. Engaged in the landscaping business, Mr. Jones planned to buy a shrubbery in Houston, TX. Nurseries prefer cash from out-of-town buyers, so Mr. Jones planned to go there with $9,000 in cash. Officers detained him at the airport: suspicious of the large amount of cash, they accused him of being involved in drug-related activities. They eventually let him go, but they kept the money, and refused to even give him a receipt for it. Because he did not have 10% of the money seized to put up as a bond, he could not afford to challenge the seizure in the usual way. Disturbed by this and other similar stories of excess, the House members voted to approve H.R. 1658 to curb this abuse. The Clinton administration said that the bill would have a negative impact on the war on drugs. The House soundly rejected an administration-favored alternative, however -- supporters of H.R. 1658 said the alternative bill would expand the federal power, not narrow it. " -

Doesn't seem all too funny anymore does it.

What can we do well for starter we can contact the Attorney General of Arizona and let him know how disgusted we are about the war on drugs being used for the war on breeders for non-profit extreme agendas.


Attorney General Terry Goddard

Office of the Attorney General1275 West Washington Street Phoenix, AZ 85007

Tucson Office400

West Congress South Building, Suite 315Tucson, AZ 85701-1367

520.628.6504 Fax 520.628.6530

Then we can go to our congressmen in our states and ask why this law is being used against law abiding citizens with the backing of animal rights groups.

And lastly you can contact the Patricks at their page and show them your support and appreciation. They need our help. Also go to and ask the webmaster how you may help with phone calls or donations.

Thank you every bit counts.
