Your Guide To Understanding Gator Mouth Pitbulls

Have you ever heard someone use the term “Gator Pitbull” when they were talking about a Pitbull they have or one they want to get?

Unfortunately, the term “Gator Pitbull” is nowadays being tossed around and used haphazardly with the people who are using this term not knowing exactly what it means or what exactly an Alligator Pitbull is.

Today’s article serves to clear all of that up, set the record straight and help you learn all you need to learn about Gator Mouth Pitbulls.

What Is A Gator Pitbull?

A Gator Pitbull refers to a Pitbull with a specific bloodline.  The original Gator Pitbulls were bred as fighting dogs.  The bloodline from Plumber’s Alligator Pit Bull and Rodriquez’s Gator Pitbull have resulted in what today is known as a Gator Mouth Pitbull.[1]

The original Gator Pit Bull bloodline has been significantly diluted over time.

The Problem With Gator Pitbulls Being Sold Today

Many backyard breeders are nowadays using the term “Gator Pitbull” to hype up a Pitbull and hope that a person would be gullible enough to fall into the trap of buying them, while the Pitbull itself is not related at all to the Gator Pits bloodline.

We’re seeing an upward trend nowadays where some unethical dog breeders are selling puppies (both online and offline) being labeled as “Gator Pitbulls”, while in reality they have no Gator bloodline traits at all.

Introduction To The Gator Mouth Pitbull Bloodline

Originally, it’s thought that Gator Pitbulls [2] were mainly bred in order to be used in dog fights, because of their substantial ability to withstand a very large amount of physical pain and keep on fighting despite this fact.

Eventually and as time passed by, dog fights [3] started to get banned faster than wildfire, which lead to a big decrease in the breeding process for this breed.

With no ability to use them in dog fights anymore, people started shifting the way they think of Gator Pitbulls and started to consider them as house pets, just like any other canine.

Please note that we are completely against dog fights and deem this to be a sick-minded concept started by sick-minded people.

We’re just stating the facts here and most certainly aren’t taking a stance that backs up dog fighting.

We really hope you’re not actively searching for an Alligator Pitbull to have them participate in fights! That’s just disgusting and plain out wrong.

With that being said, breeders as of late are no longer actively breeding this puppy for its fighting abilities.

Instead, most dog breeders that are still actively breeding for this dog are doing so for its social abilities and affection it shows its owners.

If you’re just actively searching for a Gator Pitbull because of the unique traits it possesses and the fact that a real one is not that easy to come by, then that’s fine to do by all means.

Just be careful of the fact that many breeders will claim that they have a real Gator Pit when you approach them to buy one, but in fact what they have is not a Gator Pitbull at all.

Where Can I Buy A Gator Pitbull?

If you know a highly reputable dog breeder [4] that sticks to ethical practices and knows what they’re doing, then by all means feel free to do business with them when you’re looking to buy a Gator Mouth Pitbull.

However, if we had a say in any of this, we would prefer that you have a look in one of your local shelters before you go ahead and do business with a breeder.

Why exactly is that, you may ask?

First off, a dog breeder (and no matter how reputable they are or how much you trust them) will most often charge you way more than you would be paying if you got a Gator Pitbull (or any other dog) from a rescue shelter.

Second of all, don’t we owe anything to these rescue shelters that are spending resources, time and effort to rescue dogs from abuse and from the streets?

Chances are, if you talk to a few local shelters next to you right now, you should be able to find one that has a Gator Pitbull ready for you to adopt.

Isn’t helping out a rescue shelter [5] a better choice than doing business with a breeder that will charge you more money and, as a result, lead to the euthanization of a canine in a shelter just because they had to make space for a new rescue?

If you do decide to buy a Gator Mouth Pitbull online, be wary of websites and breeders that advertise their dogs as Gator Pitbulls, while in fact they’re not Gator Pits at all.

Just do a quick search for the term “Gator Pitbull” and look at how many websites have dogs for sale listed with this description.

If you think all of them are selling true Gator Pits, then you’re mistaken!

When buying a Gator Pitbull from a breeder, be sure to ask them for proper bloodline certification and guarantees for the characteristics, traits and qualities that a Gator Mouth Pitbull has.

Any reputable dog breeder should be able to supply you with the aforementioned as a bare minimum.

If they aren’t able to meet these requirements, then you’re better off not wasting your hard earned money with them.

  1. Half the breeders on bully breeds these days are hog shit. I see Blue American Bulldogs for sale claiming there pure with papers charging an easy Grand. No American Bulldog has blue unless crossed breed into. These sharks are out there for Money & Blood. Be careful on what you buy thats for sure.

  2. I actually did buy this dog and it seems Cujo I don’t know the lady her name is LaKeisha she was I was told she had papers for him and I’ve had him since he was 4 weeks old he’s almost 14 weeks old I’m right now deathly afraid of him at this moment anyway although I’ve been rough on him he’s been I don’t know if he’s what are the traits of a blue what am I looking for and demeanor and other things please I don’t want to take him to a shelter but I will if I have to

  3. My baby is just that a big baby she can’t get a nuff love and she’s kind with my grandkids and even strangers she just doesn’t like small dogs in her face but if they stay out of her face she’s fine

  4. My sons dog had died on his birthday a couple weeks ago and a friend on facebook gave us a pup he is huge he is a blue pit and a rednose pit mix he is a hoss but so beautiful he is white with bluish grey ears and a big patch of the same color on his back and then another friend is giving me a gator pit pup its a girl she is a light grey brindle i am thinking bout letting them breed when they are both older i think they will be so beautiful has anyone ever bread a blue and rednose mix with a gator pit ?just wondering what they would look like

  5. I have a Gator Pit named “Dextor”. He’s about 9months old and is the biggest baby, little whiny cuddly wimp of a dog I’ve ever had. He’s great with kids, elderly, other dogs, cats puppies and kittens too. All I have to say is, “Dextor, that’s a baby” and he’s as gentle as a lamb. He sometimes drops a heavy paw on em but it’s just for dominance not for injury. He’s a big baby. Loves to cuddle and eat and wouldn’t hurt a fly. I recommend this breed to anyone that is human and wants a dog that will unconditionally love the hell out of you even if you treat him like crap. They are so loyal and forgiving and strong and just perfect for families. Actually for the record, the scariest, meanest dog I ever had was a 2lb Chihuahua named Raider. He was a little punk and chased off mailmen, kids, cats, other dogs and even a male white tail deer. The statement is true, ” there’s no such thing as bad dogs, just bad owners”…should say…. Except for Chihuahuas. Some of them are evil, yapping little furry nightmares. Some of them are awesome, but most of them are annoying as hell.
