Pit Bull Breeder Warning Signs To Watch Out For

7 Pit Bull Breeder Warning Signs To Watch Out For When Buying A Pit Bull.

OK, so you have decided to get a Pit Bull.

You like the way they look, the way they act, and how they carry themselves.

It is important for you to make sure that you are getting a purebred Pit Bull that looks like a Pit Bull and acts like a Pit Bull. You also want to make sure that the dog you choose will live a healthy life.

You have to be very cautious; there are lots of unsuitable Pit Bull breeders out there who care more about their profit than in proper breeding.

Since you have chosen a special breed that has the bad luck of having inappropriate breeders, you need to take your time to carefully pick the Pit Bull breeder that you deserve.

In order to find a good dog, you need to find a good Pit Bull breeder.

The hard part about finding a good Pit Bull is that almost everyone who ever let two dogs of the same breed mate considers himself or herself an expert.

The disheartening reality is that the wrong people for the wrong reasons too often breed Pit Bulls.

Below are features that you should be aware of when choosing the right breeder.

Watch out for the following:

1. Breeders who treat their dogs with cruelty, disrespect, and apparent dislike.

2. Breeders who think Pit Bulls should be aggressive and raise them as a fighting dog rather than a good companion dog.

3. Breeders who are geared up and ready to send their puppies off to new buyers rather than before the puppies turn eight weeks old.

4. Breeders who sell cheap puppies. It takes a lot of funds and other resources in order to raise healthy puppies. Cheap puppies are usually cheap because the breeder did not take the necessary steps to breed and raise a healthy litter.

You should expect to pay an average of $300 to $400 for a registered pet. For a show quality puppy, $400 to $600 is considered reasonable. Male and female should cost the same.

5. Breeders who have no photos, videotapes, or pedigree of both parents and of other relatives. An honest breeder should know about the family background of their breed.

6. Breeders who are unfamiliar with the common health problems and concerns associated with the breed.

For example, the best breeders will have their dog’s hips evaluated and screened for hip dysphasia.

7. Breeders who tell you that Pit Bulls are perfect for everyone. Pit Bulls are special dogs and need special owners.
