Quite frankly those 2 Pits look more like a Staffordshire Bull Terriers, though their ears are never cropped....... they're short and stocky and their bodies do look a bit like this.

Sorry, don't know anything about American Bulldogs, as FCI doesn't recognize them.....

Pick up a copy of Dog Fancy magazine (or any US dog mag) and look in the back at the Classifieds, under APBT. You will see pictures of dogs that are extraordinary - substantially wider, even, than those pics. I couldn't believe it when I saw them - they are like the dog-creature in that Ghost Busters movie.

(e.g. These guys advertise:

http://www.komonstersquad.com/html/image7.htm (5 week old pup!)

Plus, the blue pitbulls are bred to be huge, some over 80 ibs, and are joked about on the forum. They are not to be thought to be true to t he standard of the APBT.

If there is a market for a certain type of dog there will be those who will breed and sell them. If there isn't a market for them soon there will not be such dogs. Think about many of the other dogs we have to choose from. Many cannot be allowed outside because they cannot survive there. Some are not able to breed or deliver pups naturally. Some have developed back problems from breeding for a longer dog, some have breathing problems because of breeding for a certain type nose, some have developed eye problems from breeding for a certain type coat.
There is still a market for these dogs. Check the medical problems we have nowdays with our dogs. Breeding for a fad is more profitable than breeding for healthy dogs. Allways have been and always will be.

not all of them. blue is a naturally occurring color in the breed, though a recessive. there are blue dogs out there who are very much in standard.

hartagold's doodle comes to mind. she's dual-registered, dual-ch as an APBT and an amstaff. (rip lora. sigh.)

but yeah, part of the blue dog fad is oversized, overdone dogs. which is so unfortunate.

There is something that some people may not know. There are several dogs that are registered as amstaffs under one name. They are also registered as an apbt under another name. Same dog just different names with different registeries. The people who know the dog as an amstaff will argue the dog is not a pit. The people who know the dog as an apbt will argue the dog is not a amstaff. Neither side will do the necessary pedigree checking to find the dog is both.
Ferguson's Centipede is just an example of such a dog. There were more than just one.
There were blue pit bulls imported from england. They are not something that has just happened in the last few years. The fad is something that has happened in the last few years. To label all blue pit bulls as crossbreds is the same as saying all brindle dogs are crossbred.
