She's too young to breed right now but I was planning on hopefully finding a male similar to her in appearance with which to breed so if you'd be interested in having one in a few months, let me know.

Please don't assume.
You don't know me.
The only reason I'd like to breed my pup is because of all the wonderful characteristics she has displayed since we've had her. She is even-tempered, intelligent and has been an absolute joy to own. I feel that she is an outstanding example of the breed and I'd like to share that with others.

The people I'm dealing with that I hope to use for stud are very careful about their choice of animals. I realize that irresponsible breeding has resulted in a plethora of problems for the APBT, but I can assure you that I'm not out to make pups for money or to perpetuate a line simply for how I *hope* it will look.
A lot of research, thought and consideration has gone into this.
Eugenics...My minor is cultural anthropology. I've always been fascinated by demographics and the scientific and social patterns of different cultures, races, etc. Its interesting also to see how varied different societies and peoples are based solely on how they are genetically constructed. Its definitely a passion of mine.
nan wrote:Oy...I don't want to entirely derail this thread, but...Zyklon, you do realize that most all-white pit bulls have hearing and/or vision problems? And that if you breed your white pit bull to another white pit bull you will almost certainly have at least a few deaf and/or vision impaired pups? And the fact that your dog is UKC registered doesn't guarantee that she isn't carrying genes for hip dysplasia or heart defects? In fact, Daphne has a congenital heart defect, from what I remember, but you'd never know it to look at her.
BTW, I'm not assuming because you're from the mountains...I don't know you at all, so I'm just going on what you've posted.
And even more OT...Zyklon, one of your interests is eugenics? Really? In what way?
