Hi, could you tell us a little more about yourself, so you can be given access. There's a sample intro sticky in this forum.
Your pup to be looks adorable. Since you're buying from a breeder, I hope that they have been responsible enough to do some health testing, like hip x-rays to check for dysplasia. Right now the breed is about 25% dysplastic, which is awful. If breeders are responsible, and x-ray before they breed, it will make for a healthier breed, in the long run.

I'm 31 years old and I'm an engineer. My girlfriend is 32 years old and she's a teacher. She had 2 male purple ribbon pits before and as for me this will be my first dog so I'm pretty excited. We are both pretty active people. I'm into everything from hiking, skiing, running, the gym, swimming, mountain biking, motorcycles, white water rafting, water sports, rock climbing, camping and the list goes on. I'm hoping to get Brewski to run and hike with me. I'm a big Patriots fan, hence the dog's name :) . I like to hang out with friends at the beach and have bonfires in my yard. I also enjoy working on my house.

I will check the paperwork that was given to us about the health testing and report back. We are also going to bring him to the vet right away and get him checked out either way.

I'm not really familiar with puppies, but in this picture he looks sick. Hope he's better.

The type of health testing Leslie is talking about isn't the same as taking the dog to the vet...though that's a good thing, and I'm not trying to discourage you from taking the dog to the vet...but prior to breeding, breeders should really know the ins and outs of their dogs and know that they're bettering the breed by only breeding the best. Often times that's not the case. The more you hang out here, the more you'll see.

Your pup looks cute and I'm sure you guys are super excited to get him!

It's just some snots probably mixed with some pollen from laying in the grass...i met the Dam and she was very friendly seemed to be in great shape...the breeder was a good guy and was intent on protecting the puppies...the health documentation he provided was enough for me to pull the trigger...plus who could resist a face like that :inlove:

My girlfriend Joyelle's intro is here...

:modwelcomeonly1:
Sadly, that ad has many of the hallmarks of irresponsible breeding. Head size, oversize dogs, blue (fad color), health cert as opposed to health testing. Still, he could be a wonderful pup, but I'm pretty certain those are irresponsible breeders.
