Help the pit bull
OK, if you guys in Trinidad love and appreciate the American pit bull, you will NOT, repeat, NOT do anything to encourage those people who are simply "fad breeders" cashing in on the pit bull name and history to sell expensive, unsound, untypey pups of mixed heritage.
American bullies are NOT American pit bulls. They are American Staffordshire (hence the blue) crossed with anything from "show" bulldog to Frenchy - anything that will make them short, fat, broad and appeal to newbies.
Everytime a breed becomes a fad, which the pit bull has, there are those who try and cash in on a "bigger is better" or "rare color" or something theme. In Dobermans in the 70's it was "Doberdanes", Dobes crossed with Danes. American bullies are the same exact thing.
If you consider yourself stewards of the American pit bull, you will concentrate on helping people produce REAL athletic, sound, tough and stable American pit bulls. You won't waste your time on fad breeders and fad breeds.
Best of luck with your show.
