I started American Gamedog Kennels in 1996. My mission is, has been and will always be the preservation of the most versatile breed of dog on the planet, The American Pit Bull Terrier! A heart that no other breed can match. Determination that is unparalleled. We don't call them BULLDOGS for nothing son! I breed complete package dogs that excel in any legal venue they are introduced to. I have a long list of folks who have dogs from my kennels whom ended up with exactly what they wanted in a dog and more. Many of which I have formed good relationships with over the years. I breed all purpose dogs from the best specimens of my line. My dogs are known for powerful structures, intelligence and very high prey drives.
We are a family run Kennel located in Northwestern Pennsylvania that believes in Quality over Quantity! I keep a small yard of my hand chosen best so every spot here is precious. I do not have the time or space to deal with mediocrity. ONLY THE BEST WILL DO. Second place is just the first loser. It forces me to be very selective in my breeding decisions.
We are private kennel that will occasionally offer pups to the public.
If I feel the fit would be right.
Here are just a few of the dogs from my Kennel. Click on the name of the dog in the chart below to view it's picture and pedigree. This will give you an idea of the family of dogs I work with, type, look, structure etc. They are predominately Eli x Bolio x Boyles dogs. I also have Redboy x Jocko x Bolio bred dogs. Occasionally a few others come through here but My personal dogs are The Eli x Bolio dogs.

All dogs here are family raised with children. Socialized by my own! Only the best specimens are bred here. I do not mass produce dogs and if you expect to get a pup from me then you may have to be patient as I keep most everything for myself and a few close people I associate with. I only do breedings when I have the space to keep from it. I do not breed dogs to supply others with them, however, occasionally I will let a few go if I have a larger than expected litter.
I WILL NOT SELL DOGS TO PEOPLE I DON'T FEEL WILL KEEP MY DOGS BEST INTERESTS IN MIND, ARE CAPABLE OF CONTAINING AND ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE IN PROPERLY RAISING THEM!
I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SALE TO ANYONE I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING BUSINESS WITH.
My dogs are not for beginners. They are very high maintenance, notoriously animal aggressive, highly active dogs that require a lot of attention and exercise daily. While you see many photos of my dogs with my children, keep in mind, I have been doing this for decades and both my children have been born and raised into handling these dogs. Books can only take you so far, Hands on training and mentoring is a far better teacher.
Like with any breed of dog, they have to be socialized with children. Both pup and child need to know what is and is not acceptable. These are very intelligent dogs that are very stable around kids. However, no dog, of any breed, should ever be left with children unsupervised.
I stand behind my dogs 100% as to their lineage, pedigrees and health. I have dealt with this line for many years now and my original dogs came from the man who was the source of the line before me. Under his years of direction, he has shown me the way to creating top notch athletes in every breeding I make, time and time again.
All of my dogs are ADBA registered and I stand behind my breedings as to their authenticity as well as my paperwork's accuracy.
Puppies are wormed starting at 4 weeks of age in 3 day intervals, every other week until 10 weeks of age using Safeguard (Fenbendazole 10%).
WE start DHLPP Vaccines at 8 weeks of age and repeat them at 10 & 16 weeks of age.
I expect those who do get dogs from here to remain in contact with me occasionally as to how the dog is developing, photos etc. throughout the dogs life, this part is non negotiable.
I use several reputable and reliable GROUND transports that ship anywhere in the U.S.A.
For AIR transport I use Delta and international flights can be arranged as well through a very reputable personal transport I use.
Shipping costs and fees associated with shipping I.E. Health certificates for air travel, crates etc. are a responsibility of the buyer. Please have a strategy for transport before trying to get a pup from me.
