Pitbull Puppies For Sale
With one of the biggest smiles around, pit bulls are the apple of many people’s eyes. Though awfully protective of their favorite people, pit bulls are quite friendly too. As a puppy, a pit bull wants to play all day, every day and loves interacting with children and adults alike.
With ancestry from England, Scotland, and Ireland, the pit bull was created by crossing different bulldog and terrier breeds together. Though originally bred for fighting large animals, that has since been banned. They also have made excellent rat hunters due to their terrier roots.
A pit bull doesn’t have official breed standards and can go by one of many names: American pit bull terrier, American bully, or affectionately, “pitties,” “pibbles,” or “bullies.” This breed is closely related to the American Staffordshire terrier, as they both have similarly wide, flat heads and sturdy bodies.
The American Kennel Club does not recognize this breed. However, other prominent clubs like the United Kennel Club and American Dog Breeders Association recognize the pit bull as part of the official pack. At the end of the day, who needs to be officially recognized anyway? If you’re a pittie lover, the pit bull will always have a special place in your heart.
The pit bull sometimes has a bad reputation, but with their friendly disposition, a pit bull will melt your heart and find a way to be a part of your family. Here are some facts to consider before bringing a pit bull puppy home:
Size: Pit bulls tend to come in medium or large varieties, ranging from 30-90 pounds and 17-19 inches.
Breed Characteristics: A pit bull is a strong and sturdy dog, with the most defining characteristic being their wide faces. They have a wide, flat head and powerful jaw, with small to medium ears, and a short thin tail.
They have a short, fine coat. Other than that, pit bulls don’t have a defined set of colors related to their breed. You’ll find them in anything from steel grey to white with brown patches. All of the color varieties depend on what kind of bulldogs and terriers are mixed in with the breed.
Temperament: A pit bull may be perceived as mean in pop culture, but the natural temperament of a pit bull is quite the opposite. Outgoing and friendly, this stocky dog has a strong desire to please people. Their powerful jaws do like to chew when they are bored, though, so be sure to keep them occupied and give them plenty of exercise.
Grooming and Health Needs: Due to a pit bull’s short coat, they need minimal grooming. However, sometimes their short coat can’t protect their skin from skin allergies or mange. For all dogs, be sure to trim nails check teeth regularly.
Genetically, pit bulls can suffer from hip dysplasia, kneecap dislocation and degenerative myelopathy.
Training: Getting a pit bull puppy used to walking with a leash will certainly be a tremendous help. They are driven by prey from a history of ratting and a combination of terriers, so even well-behaved pitbulls can get a little distracted. While on a leash, this is a good opportunity to socialize your pit bull pup. This teaches them to play nice, without running off if they see something they want to catch.
Energy Level: Pit bulls are a very active breed and require a fair amount of exercise. Having a fenced in backyard where they can play vigorously is ideal so they can get rid of their excess energy. They yearn to please people, so playing games in which they can be rewarded by you while running around would be best.
Life Span: Pit bulls live between 12 – 14 years on average.

Who is the best human for a pit bull?
Pit bulls are very well suited for family life. They have been known to be gentle and playful with children, and love being part of an active household. They need a lot of opportunities to get rid of excess energy, so being cooped up in an apartment without access to move around much may yield some destructive behavior.
A well-trained pitty is a happy pitty, so training early on the leash and getting used to dogs and people will set your pitbull puppy up for a fulfilling and joyful life.
