Then I wouldn't be throwing around "game bred". It sends a very bad message.

I agree, but "gameness" doesn't necessarily mean fighting, it could also be in working terms.

What's his bloodlines? Most reputable "game dog" breeders don't spike the prices based on coat color. I can't really tell from the pic, what color is your pup?

I highly doubt the pup is actually game bred. Those dogs don't go out to just anyone. More likely, those were just terms thrown around by a backyard breeder. Which definitely seems to be the case.

If you want to know more about your dog's lines and breeding, it would be helpful to see a pedigree. Do you have a link to ped you can share, or a scanned copy/photograph? ADBA or UKC registered?

As far as activities... regardless of how the dog is bred, it would behoove you to assume that your dog will not get along with other dogs at any point in the future and plan accordingly. Lots of good suggestions so far for non-social dogs.

Avoid the dog park at all costs.

And no, game bred does not mean the dog was purpose-bred for hog hunting. It means the dog comes down from pit dogs and was selectively bred for THATT purpose.

I can see how the term 'game-bred' would make a nice gimmick tacked onto a dog's breed to make them seem tougher. Never mind that, he's your dog now, just work with what he prefers and sort him into a sport that he likes. Barn-hunt sounds like a blast, I bet that, as a terrier, he would get a real kick out of that.

The fact that the breeder charged more for color already raises red flags about him and his intentions. Also, "bloodlines" means nothing unless it can be proven. In the pit and bully circle, backyard breeders really like to throw those bloodline names around. Even if it can be proven, it might not mean much if it's not recent and the breeder hasn't been keeping up with health and temperament testing, and actually working the dogs and testing skill.

My GSD comes from bloodlines that were once known for being some of the absolute best GSD's all around. But that was 3 or 4 generations back. You would be shocked at how quickly a line can deteriorate and degrade when the breeder becomes less selective about skill/instinct by not working the dogs, and fails to do the necessary temperament tests, yet still breeds a bunch of dogs.
