When looking for a pit bull there are things you need to look into before you bring the new family member home. Adoption is a great thing to do when your looking for that special companion, and giving them a new forever home however, some people are really set on that beautiful pure bred pit bull that they might not be able to find in a shelter. I do 100% believe in adopting, every animal I have owned I have adopted except for Sadie, we splurged on her. But this is to help those who want to purchase from a breeder.

1st: Look for a highly recommended or a breeder that has had experience with raising and breeding pit bulls. This is important because pit bulls have become poorly bred dogs so you don’t want to but from a breeder who has bred poorly bred dogs.

2nd: When you have found a breeder, start off by asking the breeder questions like “what is in the bloodline?” “do the parents or any of the dogs in the bloodline have a history of being aggressive?” “are these puppies showing any signs of aggression of any kind?” Any of these questions or any question around that are great to ask! Don’t forget to ask about the bloodline, that’s very important because you DO NOT want a poorly bred dog. What I mean by that is some people are careless when breeding pit bulls and don’t look out for that genetic defect that was passed down by their parents or grandparents.

3rd: Ask to see the parents! You want to see how the parents are around you and how they act. If they show any signs of aggressive or territorial behavior then I would find another breeder. You want to make sure the parents are well trained and behaved because they are passing down traits to their puppies. Also, make sure you know that the parents are good with other dogs because you don’t want to have that one dog that is a fear to all other dogs at the dog park.

Following these simple steps will help you finding that well behaved pit bull you love and want!

Alright, I guess the title of this post speaks for itself. Whenever I see or hear about a new BSL law being put in, it makes me angry. The senator of District 9, Bernalillo, Sue  Beffort. She is planning to ask the governor to introduce a legislation this January. It will be a “dangerous dog” law and under this “dangerous dog” law Pit Bull will be included and any that share the physical traits of a Pit Bull.

What can YOU do to stop this law?:

Email:  Sue.Beffort@nmlegis.gov

Call: Capitol phone:  (505) 986- 4395 Home:  (505) 292-7116

I WILL be sending a email to say that I oppose this horrible law! If you want to stop this act, then you should call or write and tell them you oppose this law too. One person can make a difference, and if you live in New Mexico and own a Pit Bull and you don’t want your family member to be euthanized because of its breed  then call or email! And even if you don’t live in New Mexico then you should still do it because you will be saving countless Pit Bulls from being killed. Save the breed!
