How do you make your pit bull stronger?

You take them out for walks, and play with them.

Take them do gyms if they will alow animals and make it run in stuff.

Feed it very good food.

But making them become fighting dogs is never the answer, it is wrong!!

What is a blue pitbull bloodline?

Blue is a COLOR, not a bloodline


The blue bloodline was started by Dave Wilson and Carlos Barksdale. This line started out with game dogs but now a days many bully lines come from the pitbull blue line. Razor edge is a well known bully line.

There are still blue real pitbulls dogs out there.

What happens when you interbreed pit bulls?

Bad things. Very bad things. Birth defects, bad temperment, and wasted lives. I cannot see why anyone would consider that once they know that the value of pit bulls is about 0, now. People were trying to make money, from making pit bull puppies, rather than getting jobs, and overpopulated them. And, then there are people like me, who make sure that people adopt, for free, from the shelters............Chuck.

What is razors edge pit bull bloodline?

It is a bloodline which stemmed from American Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers, but has too many outcrosses of other breeds like Mastiffs and Bulldogs to achieve certain colors and shapes and sizes to be considered a purebred anything... It's a mutt American Bully bloodline, pretty much. Dave Wilson, the founder of Razor's Edge, even admits to crossing APBTs and ASTs with many other breeds. I'm sure you can google that article somewhere.

What two pit bulls breed to get brindle colors?

Brindle is a recessive trait, so there isn't a certain combination that will guarantee brindle puppies. My puppy (black and white) has two black and white parents who had a litter of three black and whites, three reds and two brindle's!

Do bulldogs have a lock jaw?

Expert scientific studies prove that the jaws of Pit Bulls or any bull dog are no different than any other breed of dog. There is no evidence that any kind of locking mechanism exists in the American Pit Bull Terrier or any other related dog breed.

- - - - -

The reason everyone claims pit bulls' jaws lock, is pits have extremely strong jaw muscles and the dogs are very tenacious. When those dogs bite something, they WILL NOT let go and the jaws are almost impossible to pry apart.

Do pit bulls have 5 toes on hind feet?

Most have 4 but I Know of a Mexican breeder who breeds for this. They sell for more because they are stronger. Normally they will have thicker muscles on their back legs too. They are not more aggressive. The parents of the puppy I just got were very well behaved. They will have 5 full sized toes plus a dew claw. The breeder was in Conroe Texas and sells through Craigslist.

Only a polydactyl has extra toes, and there is nothing different about them from other dogs of the same breed with less toes except for having extra toes. In some cases, if the dog has too many extra toes, it may pose a health risk and make walking uncomfortable, but a dog with just five looks and behaves like a four toed dog.

What homeowners insurance companies do not discriminate by dog breed?

Homeowners insurance and Dogs

No insurance company discriminates against a dog or breed, However, Insurance companies are increasingly unwilling to be liable for injury due to dog attacks and more specifically certain breeds that have been associated with historical high liability claims rates.

Many insurers are no longer being specific about the type of dog covered because policy language and structure these days increasingly excludes coverage for all damage or injuries caused by pets by default. When they are excluded it no longer matters as to your dog breed because no coverage is afforded for damages that result from our choice of pet.

More Input from Faq Farmers

  • State Farm does not have any breed specific rules. I too had to shop around because I have a pitbull.
  • I have been a happy State Farm client for 6 years. I was in a car accident and the person who hit me had them for insurance. I was so impressed with the way they handled my claim, I changed my insurance company to include health and home owners. I was even happier the day that I "slipped" and mentioned my "Bubba" was a pit, my agent went on to talk about she too had a mix!

Allstate Insurance, I have had very good service from this company. I own Cane Corso Mastiff, Dogo Canario, and Doberman. Additionally, I foster all breed types. When I added this home to the policy, they just came out, looked at the exterior of the home and that was it. No problems.

I would be careful to make sure you are being up front with your insurer regarding your dog's breed. This issue is relatively new to the marketplace and is ever changing. Many insurers will charge you more premium for a specific breed and others will exclude certain breeds if you have a claim. As long you are upfront with the breed and understand the ramifications of having that breed (higher premium, reduced coverage, etc) then you should be all set

Are there any insurance companies that provide coverage for very high risk drivers and if so which companies?

This is not an endorsement: but Progressive has built their business on insuring high-risk drivers. That's not to say your particular driving record will qualify for coverage. If you are considered high-risk and you can't seem to get coverage through the internet or an 800 number, work with an agent. It's their job.

Don't know about other states, but in Kansas the state can assign a company to issue a policy. I believe that any company lisenced to sell insurance in the state is required to accept a certain number of "assigned risk" policies. But, they are allowed to charge a premium commensurate with the risk.

The state I live in has almost no drivers on an assigned risk policy because there are so many companies that will insure anyone regardless of driving record. Make some calls and take your pick, or if you are in a state with a significant number of people on assigned risk then, as said previously, check into getting an assigned risk policy through the state insurance commissioners office.

Yes, the high risk market is an insurance market all to itself. The names of the companies will vary depending on the State you live in. In the high risk market it is very important to shop your rate as rates will vary from company to company depending on which high risk drivers the insurance company is targeting. Typically you should be able to find a number of Insurance Agencies in your yellow pages. These agencies or "agents" will represent a multitude of companies and will shop the rate between them. Shop with at least two differant agencies as these agents pay the bills with upfront "agency fees" and these will vary.

Can a 5 month old pitbull get his ears cropped?

It's probably too late, you need to do it young and depends on their weight. I wouldn't recommend getting it done unless the vet approves and a respected vet at that.
