"Blue" is JUST A COLOR, and blue
dogs are NOT RARE. Steer clear of
breeders that boast "rare blues".

responsible breeders, go HERE.
For more about the "blue myth"
and other misconceptions about
Pit Bulls, please go to the myths
...the UKC standard for the
American Pit Bull Terrier states
that anything over 60 pounds for a
male and 50 pounds for a female
is UNDESIRABLE. Dogs that weigh
70+ pounds are grossly incorrect
and NOT typical Pit Bulls. Don't let
SCAM BREEDERS charge you
$1000, $2000, $3000 or more for
an incorrect, sub-standard Pit Bull.
Research the breed, and seek out
TRUE representatives of the
American Pit Bull Terrier. For more
info on what a REAL Pit Bull should
look like, see this page.

|No such breed as a Pit Bull? Really?
Pit Bull absolutely IS a breed. The term has ALWAYS been
traditionally used as shorthand for AMERICAN PIT BULL
TERRIER. Legislators and media have used the term
incorrectly to refer to dogs that simply look a certain way.
However, BREED specific legislation is referred to as such for
a reason. It targets a BREED: if you prove your dog is not a
PIT BULL, your dog is exempt from BSL. The term Pit Bull has
been misapplied for a very long time. Saying there is no such
breed as a Pit Bull is like claiming there is no such breed as a
Lab or Rott, or Aussie, or Dobe. BSL includes dogs that LOOK
like Pit Bulls for a very specific reason: the burden of proof
that your dog is NOT a Pit Bull is on the guardian. This means
BSL sweeps up as many dogs as possible. Unless you can
provide some proof that your dog is NOT a Pit Bull. This is one
reason BSL is so detrimental and unfair.
