Welcome!  Here at APBT Books.com we are all about the History of the American Pit Bull Terrier. If material depicting dogfighting history is offensive  to you do not order these historical materials from our web site.

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 USA 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
