Very good read but this was the part I liked the best.

"A word about size"

It has become a common practice for breeders to specialize in oversized and overweight dogs, under the impression that bigger must be better. On the opposite end, there are some breeders focusing on extremely tiny dogs in an attempt to create “pocket pits.” (The former is more common than the latter.)

All dogs need love, but its important to realize that you may well be supporting poor breeding practices if you buy from someone pushing “XXL pits,” or those of “superior size.” Beware also breeders who boast about thick chests, low-stationed bodies, huge heads, females which are manlier than other kennels’ males, and the like. This breed was never intended to be huge, and the standard describes a medium-sized dog with a preferred weight range of 30-60 pounds. These dogs were forged as the ultimate athlete, and any attempt to exaggerate their features can only detract from the breed. You owe it to yourself to research thoroughly if you are thinking about buying an APBT bred for any of these traits.

I think all pit bull owners/lovers should read this. It is very good.
In my opinion, the best two sentences in the whole letter were the last two, especialy the last one. I copied and pasted them here. Mule

"The only rare APBT is the one bred by a responsible breeder who emphasizes health, proper temperament, structure, and working ability. And the most valuable breed/color/type in the world is the one sitting next to you."
