THE AMERICAN PRESERVATION DOG REGISTRY WAS FORMED BY A GROUP OF VETERAN DOGMEN TO NOT ONLY PRESERVE BUT TO CELEBRATE THE AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER! IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE OUR GOALS WE REALIZED THAT THE APDR COULD NOT CONTINUE DOWN THE PATH OTHER REGISTRIES HAVE AS WE HAVE WITNESSED WHAT WE BELIEVE IS A STEADY DECLINE IN THE INTEGRITY OF BOTH THE BREED AND OUR FRATERNITY OF DOGMEN. THE FACT THAT DOGS ARE BEING CROSSBRED WITH OTHER BREEDS AND BEING REGISTERED AS AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIERS WITH CURRENT REGISTRIES TURNING A BLIND EYE TO THE FACT WHEN THEY HAVE HAD CREDIBLE EVIDENCE FOR YEARS IS JUST ONE INDICATOR OF THAT LOSS OF INTEGRITY.
In line with our goals we will be hosting sanctioned Conformation Shows for dogs around the globe with the events being judged by Top Notch Dogmen of good reputation who have pledged to put the preservation of our beloved dogs first! We will be adding other working breeds as the Registry evolves but will from the start host Sanctioned Sporting Events (Lure Coursing, Weight Pull, Slatmill Races, Terrier Derbies, Wall Climb, Swim Races, Dock Diving, and Tug-O-War) for ALL dogs to celebrate their working abilities which will more importantly allow us to educate and mentor the entire dog community about the true nature of our dogs and encourage Responsible Dog Ownership of ALL dogs throughout the World.
