Our Red Nose pitbulls are Dual Registered with the UKC and the ADBA, with Purple Ribbon, Champion and Grand Champion bloodlines in their backgrounds. We use our (OFRN) Old Family Red Nose pit bulls to hunt wild boar, but they also make wonderful family pets! The red nose pit bulls that we have produced have also been used for other kinds of work, including personal protection work and Schutzhund training. We usually have a few litters of red nose pit bull puppies for sale each year, but availability is limited so if you are interested in buying a red nose pit bull puppy from us, it is suggested that you get your deposit in as early as possible.
We are located in Adairsville, Georgia about 1 hour North of Atlanta, GA and we specialize in the traditional red nose American Pit Bull Terrier. We have been breeding red nose pit bulls for over a decade and loving every minute of it!
If you are looking to own a red nose pitbull that will provide your family years of enjoyment AND get that "WOW, what a beautiful dog!" reaction, one of our red nose pits will definitely fulfill your needs. Not only are our pit bulls beautiful, they have wonderful temperments, awesome structure and conformation, true working ability, and drive... all in one package!!!
We have produced red nose pit bulls as small as 40 lbs. and as large as 80 lbs. However, the majority of the pits that we produce are in the 45-65 lb. range. Our ideal American Pit Bull Terrier is in this weight range because we like a nice medium sized pit bull, though we want to stress that we are NOT breeding for size or for color. We are more interested in drive and structure because we work our dogs.
Temperment is also important because all of our pit bulls must be trusted around our children. Our red nose pit bulls are our family first, but we also use them for hunting wild boar. Temperment is also important for hunting dogs because they must have the ability to do their job while being easy to handle by any hunter. Our goal is to produce, quality, healthy, even-tempered red nose pit bulls with the ability to do it all!
We try our best, to only sell our red nose pit bull puppies, to individuals or families willing to make a lifetime commitment to one of our dogs... We sincerely believe that the "American Pit Bull Terrier" is NOT the dog for everyone. They are a dog for an individual or family willing to make a lifetime commitment to these animals in regards to its care, early puppy socialization, and introduction to "all" facets of life. Pit Bulls require special owners who are VERY responsible!
Pitbulls should never be allowed to run loose around your neighborhood unsupervised, because just like children, a pit bull will get into serious trouble if not properly watched. Think about it, would you allow your children to run around doing whatever they want, with whoever they want to hang around with, and expect them to be good citizens all the time? Dogs are the same way, you must teach them right from wrong if you want them to be good dogs! Even if you live in a rural area, it's still a good idea to watch your pit bull. It doesn't really matter what the breed of dog is! If you have a dog that is medium sized or larger, you need to keep an eye on them so that you keep them, as well as others, safe. If you love your dogs, you owe that to them!
We have over 10 acres that we live on about 1 hour north of Atlanta, Georgia. Our dogs get to exercise freely on our property nearly every day (though I do keep an eye on them so they don't go over to the neighbor's farm and try to grab a goat!). I also take the dogs on hikes regularly in the North Georgia mountains near our home. Our kids, as well as us adults, are committed to giving our pit bulls the attention and exercise that they need. Pit bulls are a high energy dog breed and they need exercise to keep them in good health, both mentally and physically! Most behavioral problems in pit bulls, stem from boredom.
Our pitbulls do not stay on chains (you might see chains on our dogs in some of the older
photos on this website). Our dogs stay in 10 X 10 kennels giving them plenty of room
for comfort. I only mention this because we sometimes get contacted by nut-jobs that want to
preach about our dogs being on chains. I currently have one dog that is on a chain and that is
because he actually prefers the chain to being in a kennel. He loves the anticipation of a cat cruising by,
and cries constantly if you put him in a kennel. He wants those cats that tease him all day!
Though honestly, I really have no problems with people having their dog on a chain as long as it isn't overly heavy for their frame (you want the snap and chain heavy duty enough where your pit bull won't break loose, but not so heavy that it weighs them down hurting their back and shoulders) and as long as the dog receives time off the chain when his owners are at home. They can't be on the dang thing all the time, that isn't right! But I mostly understand in situations where a person does not own their own home and don't have the money to invest in kennels or fences, AND their landlord will not allow them to keep the dogs inside their home either... That was our situation a few years back,, so I completely understand. In that case, a person is being a RESPONSIBLE pit bull owner by placing their dog ON A CHAIN, so that he doesn't rome free, unsupervised, and getting into trouble! Some folks just go overboard on the chain issue and don't fully think it through as to why some dog lovers might actually NEED to secure their dog by using a chain.
We are hobby breeders and only have a few litters of red nose pit bull puppies for sale each year. Our females are never bred before the age of 18 months old and are retired from breeding early in life. We try to price our dogs fairly so that we can still cover our costs and so that the average, hard working man or woman, can afford a great, well bred pit bull! Dogs are like anything else that you purchase, you usually get what you pay for... What you get when you buy a pit bull from us, is a quality red nose pit bull puppy, with great bloodlines, raised by people who care about the pit bull breed and have the experience to properly care for and understand a growing, pit bull puppy's needs.
We take the time to give our red nose pit bull puppies the socialization they need to get a good start in life. Our puppies learn to follow commands at an early age because I take the entire litter on walks around our property as soon as they are able to walk good enough. I feel this socializes them by getting them used to being around people, but it also gives them time to play out in nature and allows them to use their curiosity to learn about the world around them. I also get to tell them "No!" quite often, when they poke their noses into places they shouldn't be. We also allow our kids to go on these walks quite often, so the puppies get used to children at the earliest age that they can. Play is how puppy's learn!
I get a lot of questions regarding what age a pit bull puppy will reach its full size, so just to inform those who don't know, most pit bull puppies usually reach their maximum height at 1 year old and keep widening out in the chest, head, and rear area until they reach full maturity around 2-3 years old. We are appalled by some of the pit bulls that other breeders are producing, particularly short, fat, pit bulls that cannot even jump because their proportions are way out of whack and aren't functional. To me, some of these dogs do not even resemble a pit bull. We love the traditional red nose pit bull and we are trying to preserve, and improve upon, the red nose strain of the American Pit Bull Terrier. Our pit bulls are thick enough to have excellent bone structure but not so thick that they resemble another breed of dog. The traditional American Pit Bull Terrier was bred for performance and we strive to maintain those standards through working ability and by passing on our pit bulls good genetics for having great conformation, structural balance, power, and speed.
Pit Bulls that are extremely large, or way too short, usually do not have the stamina or athletic ability that a working pit bull needs to have. We feel that a pit bull can look tough WHILE remaining functional! We are breeding for a well-rounded red nose pit bull with a high prey drive toward animals, and AMAZING athletic ability! Our pit bulls have (OFRN) Old Family Red Nose pit bull bloodlines that are out-crossed with various game pit bull bloodlines giving them a medium size build and an extremely high prey drive. Excellent temperment, and nice head and bone structure is just a bonus! The high prey drive in our pit bulls is geared toward animals for hog hunting purposes, never toward people.
We feel that some breeders are just contributing to the problem with homeless pits, especially inexperienced ones that are breeding low quality animals. We feel that by breeding high quality pit bulls, we are helping to ensure the pit bull breed's future. All of our adult dogs have been trained to hunt wild boar here in the North Georgia mountains. So all of our red nose pit bulls grow up to be working dogs and are PROVEN to have game and drive. If they don't have the drive, they don't get bred here. Hog hunting is truly the best and only legal way (in my opinion), to test a pit bull's drive and gameness in today's world.
Wilder's Red Apache
Every pit bull we have ever put on a hog, has done great with hunting wild boar. They hit hard and stay on for the ride! Our pit bulls are very athletic AND intelligent, so they can be used for a variety of purposes. The pit bulls we have produced have been used for schutzhund work, french ring and PSA competitions, hog hunting, personal protection work, conformation showing, and weight pulling. We've even had a few of our pit bulls on TV! Our pit bulls are smart and can be easily trained for whatever type of work that you want them to do, you just have to make the effort to teach them!
Besides hog hunting, one of the main (AND MOST IMPORTANT!) jobs that my pit bulls do for me, is protect me on hikes when I am walking alone in the mountains. My dog Bittersweet saved my life in 2009 when a man followed me in the woods, I believe that he planned on raping me. Just as I would protect my dogs with my life, they do the same for me! She performed wonderfully and by jumping at him and flipping out on her leash, trying to get at him, the man couldn't get anywhere near me!!! Man, did that make him mad too... but it saved me and I will be forever grateful that she loved me enough to protect me.
Pit Bulls are very loyal and loving dogs. No other breed has the tenacity, loyalty, and dedication that the American Pit Bull Terrier has. No one really knows how much love they have to give until they have owned a pit bull for themselves. Many that do never go back to owning any other breed of dog because other breeds cannot live up to their expectations! Pit bulls are truly spectacular animals and do not deserve the bad reputation that many have given to them. Their bad behavior is usually due to irresponsible owners who will not keep them contained properly or who have not parented them correctly from the beginning. Not because they are evil dogs!
All of our pit bulls are good with people or we would not own them. We look out for the best interest of our kids and would NEVER put them in any kind of danger. If anything... we feel our kids are SAFER having pit bulls around! We only keep a few dogs in our yard so that we can give them the attention and socialization that they deserve. Our dogs are smart enough to know when to be protective and to take action but they are also very lovable to those they trust. In other words they are very protective, but not crazy. They are very intelligent dogs and know how to use their heads! Our pit bulls are extremely gentle and play with our kids daily.
We feel that our pit bulls have the beauty and drive that define the Red Nose American Pit Bull Terrier! If you want to bash on our dogs or are a part of some insane animal rights group such as PETA that believes in any kind of breed prejudice, then take yourself ELSEWHERE. However, if you are a pit bull lover who believes as we do, then by all means, stay and look around awhile! We know you will enjoy our website because we have some of the finest Old Family Red Nose Pit Bulls to be found ANYWHERE.
We Do Not Sell/Use Our Dogs for Illegal Purposes!
