American Pitbull Terrier & Klosowski Red Dog History

American Pitbull Terrier & Klosowski Red Dog History

Since the beginning of human existence, we have shared this world with animals. One of these animals is the wolf. Over time, man figured out how to domesticate these wolves and selectively breed their physical & mental attributes to protect, serve, and companion humans. All dog breeds originate from the wolf.

Centuries later humans continue to selectively breed dogs for specific working functions. Australian cattle dogs work with farmers. German Shepard's and Belgium Malinois heard and work with military. Alaskan Husky's are great sled pullers. Labradors work with hunters for retrieval. Etc etc...

American Pit Bull Terriers

Humans continue to work with dogs for obvious beneficial reasons. The American Pit Bull Terrier is no different, but has one of the most complex history of any breed. Originally bred for extreme combat prey drive to excel in the box, "dog fighting". Those "game" dog breeders have selectively bred these bulldog-terrier crossed dogs for fighting over the past few centuries. They created a breed like no other. The true APBT developed into the deepest willed dogs of any breed. The APBT determination, drive, and pure genetic will power to never give up is like no other breed. Although the sport of dog fighting is still legal in many countries, it is not accepted here in the USA or at Delaware Red Pitbulls.

With the characteristics of the original combat APBT, also preserves characteristics that are much more useful in today's times but for different functions such as dog sports. Here at DRP, we develop and preserve a breed that to some is still classified APBT, but has evolved into something even more that's similar to the original APBT standard but better suited for more humane function by modern day standards. The American dog breeding association registry has renamed this "out of standard" breed to the  "Working Pit Bulldog" due to it being bred out of traditional APBT standard. Out of standard is not to be mistaken with cross breeding. Out of standard is simply a different desired selection of breeding stock. The Klosowski Red Dog has been bred for heavier clean correct healthy structure without jeopardizing Drive. The Klosowski Red Dog is similar to the APBT but with much better aptitude towards Personal protection. The ultimate home protection breed. But unlike other protection breeds like the Rottweiler or German shepard, the Klosowski Red dog is more versatile. The DRP refined Canine has this incredible temperament that is capable of catching nuisance animal such as coyotes or wild pigs but also great at cuddling your children.

The United Kennel Club registry continues to classify the Klosowski Red as APBT. So if the apbt name is what you prefer, thats what the Klosowski Red registration certificate will read. These changes in clarifications are recent history 2010s. The popular so called worlds biggest "pitbull" "The HULK" triggered these red flags and changes by all dog men across the world including our registration companies such as the ADBA and UKC. The hulk is a known mixed breed dog so far out of standard, that calling him a "Pitbull" was a disgrace to the real pitbull and dogmen of the past. Dog like the Hulk are designer dogs with no true function and their severe lack if endurance was unfair to the true APBT. The registrations said enough is enough and took a stand. About 2 decades ago, DRP instantly fell in love with the possibilities of this non-traditional standard breeding that eventually came to create the Klosowski Red, but without cross breeding. A heavy structured APBT with above adverage athletic ability and versatility 2nd to none of any breed. The best of both worlds, staying true and not selling out for $.
