Welcome! Here at APBT Books.com we are all about the History of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
We have spent a lifetime collecting material on this noble breed. The Books we are offering cover well over 100 years of history of the breed in this country. Within the pages of these books you have the rich history of these wonderful dogs and also of the men that made them. We also offer some great Art and Collectibles of these fine dogs, including antique photographs and bulldog bronzes. Occasionally we will have some older collectible magazines to offer our customers. If you have any questions on special offers, or if you are looking for a certain item, please contact us and we will reply promptly. We also buy and trade historical items, please contact us
We want to make clear our stand on modern day dog fighting. We do not condone and/or encourage anyone to use any dog for the purpose of fighting! It is illegal in every state in the US. Nothing on this site is sold to be used for any illegal purposes. Please think of the dogs first and never use them for any illegal purpose ever! The history of the breed is a great American legacy. You can appreciate the dogs for their tenacity and courage without allowing them to fight. Studying the past can teach us how these dogs evolved and the roles they played in history. There are many legal activities you can do with your dogs and in doing so, they can show you what it means to "stay with it like a Bulldog".
Thank you, APBT Books.com
