yes he is full blooded (i love his ears too)

i love the agility idea

as for hunting i was told he was bred to hunt pigs i have let him tree squirrels in the yard and he will bark at rabbit holes if there are rabbits in them

i have horses at a place that shows them a agility course would be all so easy to assemble


im not big on the pulling idea since he was a baby pulling has been discouraged

Well, with any dog sport it's best to wait until they are about a year and a half old before you actually make them perform or push them harder. You also don't want him to be jumping to high at this age for agility, or doing much contact training.

Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation - Google Books has a table for which sports activities can be done when.

Oh, and it's not a matter of not pushing him - some dogs (especially high drive high-pain threshold dogs) ignore what their bodies are telling them they should do and need to be limited by their owners.

"game bred" means he comes from a line of fighting pits.

Where did you find a dog fighter willing to sell you a dog? They usually only sell to other dog fighters.

I know a little bit, about 10 years ago I owned a male American Pit bull Terrier off of jeep/cowboy/gator lines and a female off of eli/Crenshaw lines. My male was very drivey, loved to run for miles, he could climb trees and clear a 4 ft fence with ease...he was very intelligent but he was dog aggressive. Lots of training is key to MANAGING DA. He could be near other male dogs but he could not interact with them and I never tried to force him, it wasn't going to happen. He was also very protective of my young son. My female was stolen from us when she was 11 months old so I didn't get to see much of her, but during the time that I had her she was very athletic and a total sweetheart. I had better success using toys to train them as they were not very "treat motivated". Keeping their attention was a bit challenging lol. Congrats on your new pup, enjoy him!

Byb's aren't too picky these days, all they care about is the money. Lots of byb's throw around the term "game bred" just to sell pups. Truth is, without a pedigree you never really know.
