| Dog lovers in England,Ireland and Scotland began crossing Bulldogs and Terriers sometime during the 19th century.Their quest was to breed out a dog that combined the gameness of the Terrier with the strength and athleticism of the Bulldog. The result was a breed of dog that embodied strength, courage, intelligence and gentleness with loved ones. Immigrants brought these bull and terrier crosses to the United States where the American Staffodshire Terrier and American Pit Bull Terriers are now recognized as standard breeds.
The majority of the American public carry the impression that APBT's are used for fighting purposes only.But This idea is being dispelled by persistant efforts of rescue groups and responsible breeders like Brooklyn Kennels (NY) ,Pit Stop Kennels (NY) , Razors Edge Kennels (VA) and BNT Kennels (VA).
Brooklyn Kennels is dedicated in selecting and breeding quality dogs for substance, heavy bone, movement, conformation and excellent temperments.
