Our APBTs

When selecting from the many various lines of APBTs, we chose to stick with true performance bred dogs from game bred lines (due to their exceptional athleticism, drive, and health) that also displayed phenomenal stability, thereby ensuring the dogs would maintain clarity of mind even when doing intense work such as hog catch or protection training...after all, these dogs were going to be working with my family. As a result, we sought after APBTs that are primarily founded upon either the Sorrells blood (Zeke/Goldie foundations), the Bolio blood (also founded upon Zeke/Goldie), but have also used quality dogs from Redboy/Jocko strains.


Our APBTs Dogs were selected by performance criteria, and then hip X-ray screened (only keeping dogs with "good" or "excellent" ratings) to help ensure that not only that we had dogs with a strong desire to work, but that would also display great recovery time and longevity by only keeping dogs that had structurally sound genes. Not every dog met our requirements, and dogs that we purchased that did not meet our criteria were returned to their breeders.


While APBTs are considerably smaller than and obviously not as powerful as the dogs in our American Sentinel program, not everyone has the strength to physically handle a strong, driven dog in the 80-120# weight range when doing high drive work such as hog hunting or protection training. Courtney, my daughter for example, is a small young lady with shoulder problems as well, and the smaller APBT is considerably easier for her to manage being they are generally a little more than half the size of our American Sentinels. She is pictured on the left with her dog, Little Rascal.


That said, we didn’t want to go too small for our objectives, so we sought after top quality lines of APBTs that were often on the larger side of the breed’s general size (which is typically 30-60#). From here, we are working on developing a line of top quality APBT from pure game bred stock that will end up in the 50-70# range. This additional weight is beneficial when dogs are worked for catching wild hogs and also for protection work applications. Since the game bred APBT is one of the most powerful and durable breed of dogs in existence on a “per-pound basis,” this weight range is certainly sufficient for our goals. Few breeds can compare to this mid-sized breed, and when properly bred and handled by responsible owners, these mid-size dogs are very capable, healthy, and stable dogs. 

Wanted: Heavy Bolio bred female

We are currently looking for one more APBT female from high quality, proven game bred stock descended from the Klaus' Zeke x Carver's Goldie foundation. The Zeke/Goldie foundation created not just Bolio, (the primary basis to Pat Patrick's legendary line of dogs), it is also responsible for creating Bull (the foundation to the Sorrells' line of dogs). 

While Patrick and Sorrells both created lines of dogs based upon this common foundation, I would rather the female come through Mr. Patrick's program since I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and his work.

We will only purchase the female if...


1) she has the traits we desire, 

2) the pedigree is comprised of performance tested dogs that display the traits we desire, and

3) most importantly comes from someone trustworthy. 

Our APBT versus our American Sentinels

Half the Size

The APBT as a breed is a phenomoenal and very efficient breed, but its power is limited by its size, as it is rare to find true APBTs that are in shape that hit the scales over the 60#s mark. While there are people out there advertising "XL" pit bulls; however, those dogs are not really APBTs. Breeders of "XL pit bulls" bred for looks, not health or performance; therefore, "XL" dogs tend to be lacking the health, sound structure, drives, and confidence that is expected of the true APBT. 

Overly Social Behavior

The APBT is often to social to be an effective sentry dog, as they tend to like people, including strangers; however, due to their drives, they certainly can be trained for protection work. Some do balance nicely and can become very successful at such work when properly trained, but I would not claim the APBT as a naturally protective breed. They do have very high prey drive however and like the American Sentinel they tend to make excellent hog catch dogs. 

Not Politically Correct

The biggest weakness in the APBT as a breed is public perception, due to being owned by so many irresponsible people; however, they are generally great dogs if they are owned and bred by responsible people that know how to eliminate undesired traits from the breed. When properly bred, the APBT is a phenomenal athlete, excels at most work, and likes to please its master. In the wrong hands, they can be a lot of trouble. If you are interested in an APBT, learn about the breed first, and be sure to maintain the highest level of personal responsibility.
