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.
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 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.”-http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2007/jul/29/cruelty-may-link-dog-fighting/
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."-www.gundogsupply.com
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. "-hsus.org
They have a whole fact sheet on this. But what they don't show you is this.
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
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

We are not just asking for money. We would rather your time and only money if you do not have the time.
These two dogs seem to be getting along just fine together.
These young pups also were rule unsociable and killed.
This dog as well seems very socialized.
This is what we are up against. They had these very pictures in the court room and yet Desiree Bender said these dogs deserved to died. These dogs and many more. When questioned they changed their answer to say that the dogs health led them to kill all the puppies because their joints were so disfigured.
Go to http://www.stop-bsl.com/ decide what you can help us with. We have flyer's that can be passed out. We need people to spread the word and we need people to believe that we can make a change. And if you cannot give any of your time, then by all means please donate. But your time if far more valuable to us.
Also we plan to begin interviewing victems of such crimes and those who give us permission to do so, will have thier interviews published online so they can share their story with you. This is a testimate to how hard our small group works to show you that not only are we out there but we are effective.

Pima County got an award for Law Enforcement of the Year from the HSUS. They led a raid on an innocent breeder killed 94 of their dogs and gave away the other 20. The breeder was later found not guilty of any crimes and is now suing Pima county. They also accused a chicken breeder of cockfighting and killed 300 of his birds, he as well was found not guilty and is suing Pima county as well.
Louisiana State Police Trooper Jacob Dickinson and the LASPCA. They seized 50+ dogs from a breeder in Louisiana and killed them 24 hours after the seizure. The search warrant was based on articles of paraphernalia that in court turned out not to exist. The Trooper then stated the dogs were killed against his will. The LASPCA still has no idea who gave the order to kill the dogs. The Father and son Breeders where acquitted and left with 50+ dead animals. I would imagine they will be suing as well.
Desiree Bender of the Arkansas' Humane Society of the United States chapter. This lady all in one year publicly made racial slurs towards Hispanic people and allegedly towards African American during questioning. She violated the rights of 3 minor children in Arizona, a state she has no jurisdiction in, and destroyed the life of a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Bender was the "expert" in the Pima County massacre and the killing of the dogs and puppies in Arkansas.
Diane Jessup the so called pit bull expert who has written books portraying the proper use of working Pitbull exercise equipment, while she take dogs from raided breeders accused of using same equipment to fight dogs. WOW you have got to give it to this lady for pulling this scheme off so effortlessly. She breeds dogs from Game bloodlines and wrote a book WITH one of the GREATEST gamedog breeders of his time. Then she helps the HSUS with raids based on the fact that their dogs originate from gamebred bloodlines.She then get a cut o fthe expensive bred puppies. Oh i forgot the part where she has the pups that are no use to her put down. And check out the price of that book by the way.
John Goodwin, the head of the animal fighting issues at the Humane Society of the United States. Well he's on here just for showing up. He has been the defense's best witness in every case. His terrorist past and lack of high school education are a true blessing. Combine that with his admitting that it is illegal for HSUS to be "undercover" at dog fights, under oath and basing his knowledge on Pitbulls strictly from books, makes him the best expert the Defense could find, Except that the Prosecution was nice enough to supply him for them.
Dogbitesbite.org the Pitbull hating and BSL spreading Mecca of the net. They still continue to call breeders, who have been found not guilty in a court of law, dog fighters. They attack Stop-bsl.com for providing assistance to innocent breeders of American Pitbull Terriers. 5 out of 7 Stop-bsl.com stood up for were found innocent of any crime. 1 was found guilty by way of plea agreement that was gained by civil leverage on his home by the county. The other plead no contest after a mistrial and lack of funds for another trial, he did no jail time. The others that have not been to court have cases identical to the people who have been found not guilty. MEMO TO DOGDBITE.ORG :their are charities raising money for convicted MURDERERS. Why not go after them and why not stop Slandering people the constitution has FOUND INNOCENT.
And what do they all have in common? The Humane society of the United States has their hand up these puppets butts. They know this is gonna have an ugly backlash and they will put their puppets outside the gates for the Romans to get them when they come. ADA BOY!!!!!!!!!!!
