Hmmm..maybe I'm mistaken...are you breeding pitbulls with AB's? Nice looking dogs and you seem to have your heart in the right place. Question though...you say your dogs are "proven". How are they proven? Do you health test them at all?

Elaborate please on what you are referring to by "health test".
Have you had their hips and elbows xrayed? They should be Penn Hip tested. Breeders should be able to provide proof that their breeding stock has been checked for hearing, heart, and kidney issues.

I'm not making any accusation mind you. I'm just asking questions. :)

Sorry, it's taken me so long to get back on the board. There has been A LOT going on around here.
Kasco - Boudreaux was OFA tested at 24 months. He received a good rating and his hips are not dysplastic. The dogs are clear of heart worms. As far as kidneys, I was unaware of a test to ensure proper kidney function. I know that increased urination can be an indication of kidney disease, Cushings Syndrome, or diabetes. The dogs have shown no signs of any of these. Hypothyroidism is commonly diagnosed in purebred animals, therefore this is something we keep an eye out for as well. We haven't performed any hearing tests on the dogs, but we do keep their ears cleaned on a regular basis with a vinegar/alcohol solution. Ear infections can travel to the brain and be fatal as I found out with my parents dog.
As for your other question...we are breeding an American Staffordshire Terrier with an American Bulldog, thus the American BullStaff is produced. Ultimatly, an outstanding creature.

Asian ******* - Austin is just a hop, skip, and a jump from me. I used to live in Spicewood. Do you know where that is?

Quite serious as a matter of fact. Every bully breed we have today is a combination of something. That is how we now have the dogs we have grown to love.
As far as the other person that posted - we don't work them in the general sense of "working". However, we are in the process of buying a house with acreage. We plan to begin to educate ourselves more about pulling and possibly having some "Fun Pulls" on our land. Right now, we just take them to the lake and run them and have a good time swimming.
