We are Rios' Pit Bull Kingdom, breeders of fine American
Pit Bull Terriers! We hope you

90lbs. Our females reach an adult weight of approximate
55lbs. Sometimes we produce females that reach up to 75lbs.
Our American Pit Bull Terriers
posses sound temperaments and fearless, calm confident
demeanors with superior intelligence. Our dogs make
excellent family pets. We do not breed blue pit bulls! If you are looking for a
blue pit bull, you will not find one on our yard but you can

We work diligently to
breed the total package “American Pit Bull Terrier”.
Most of our dogs’ conformation features blocky heads and wide
muscular chests. Our dogs are very functional. Our American Pit Bull Terriers are
healthy, sound in temperament, loyal, loveable, and athletic.
This website intends to
provide information about the American Pit Bull Terrier in
hopes of educating the public and thus preserving the breed.
Rios' Pit Bull Kingdom has included an APBT Dictionary Page
to familiarize everyone with common terms used by pit bull
owners. Rios' Pit Bull Kingdom also provides an Origin
of APBT Page to correctly inform everyone about
the history of the American Pit Bull Terrier and about some
of the important Pit Bull Strains.
In our efforts to further
educate everyone about the APBT, we have included a Famous
Dogs Page, which includes stories of famous dogs, pit
battles, a list of Register of Merit, list of Grand
Champions, and a Photo Gallery of those famous dogs.
In order to improve the image of the APBT, Rios' Pit Bull
Kingdom also has created pages such as the APBT Fact and
Myths Page and Positive Press Page, which include positive
information and heroic stories about pit bulls.
The APBT is in danger of
becoming extinct. We encourage everyone to join the
Endangered Breeds Association and to get involved in fighting Breed
Specific Legislation (BSL). On our BSL Page, we have
posted links to various petitions, which fight BSL. We
encourage everyone to go to our BSL page and vote against BSL
by clicking on each petition. Many states are currently
trying to ban pit bulls by attempting to pass BSL. It is
already illegal to own pit bulls in Ontario Canada, and in
some parts of Europe and in the United States. There
are many states currently trying to enact BSL,
which would make it illegal for anyone to own a pit bull.
Also, on our BSL Page, we have listed the Yahoo BSL Groups
for each state. Everyone can join a Yahoo BSL
Group by just clicking on the respective link for each
Rios' Pit Bull Kingdom has
added a Weight Pull page to assist you with this sport.
We do not proclaim to be "real
dogmen" nor do we make claims of having game dogs.
We do not game test our dogs. We
do not breed our dogs for dog fighting nor do we associate
with individuals involved in dog fighting. Our dogs' foundation
bloodlines consist of CH Garner’s Chinaman, Ch Crenshaw's Jeep, CH Plumbers'
Alligator, GR Ch
Cate's Nigerino, Ch Adam's Zebo, Sarona's Trouble, Ch Mtn
Man's Homer. Note that these game bloodlines are
far back in our dogs' pedigrees. Our dogs are not
tightly bred but are somewhat scatterbred. We do not sell our
dogs based on a game dog pedigree. By
breeding these game lines, we have developed our own
strain of American Pit Bull Terriers. We have produced
virtually every dog on our yard. All of our
American Pit Bull Terrier puppies are whelped indoors where
they receive excellent health care and are appropriately
socialized. Our American Pit Bull Terriers are
bred for weight pulling competition,
protection, conformation, and companionship. Our dogs make excellent pets! We have
“High Quality” litters available at
a working man’s price. We only sell our dogs to
responsible and experienced individuals. Individuals who are considering
purchasing one of our puppies, must adhere to our
Deposit Contract and our Sales Contract! No exceptions!
Rios' Pit Bull Kingdom encourages everyone to visit our
State Animal Laws Page and familiarize themselves with the
animal cruelty laws and penalties for each state in the U.S.
In order to assist
responsible dog owners with the health
needs and training needs of their pups and adult dogs, Rios'
Pit Bull Kingdom has created a Puppy Care page, a Health
Care page, and a Dog Training page. Be sure to visit
both of our links pages. We have links to some very helpful
sites and to many APBT breeders.

Footprints in the Sand
One night I had a dream --
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
There was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and
saddest times in my life
This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
You would walk with me all the way;
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in
There is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why in times when I
needed you the most, you should leave me.
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious
child. I love you, and I would never,
never leave you during your times of
trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."
