Why is the Kingfish Pitbull rare?
Kingfish Pitbulls are one of the first pit bull bloodlines established in American.
They descend from a male pit bull named Champion Kingfish who was bred to be a hunter.
This pioneer Kingfish lived in Ohio with his owner, until a breeder with a keen eye for quality dogs spotted him.

This breeder proceeded to mate Champion Kingfish with several female American pit bull terriers.
Once the desired litter was achieved, the puppies were bred between each other to maintain the Kingfish qualities.
That is how the Kingfish bloodline was born.
What makes the Kingfish bloodline rare is that it is one of the few pitbull lines that can proudly boast of the title “purebred”.
When pit bulls became popular, many breeders jumped on the background of producing their first litter.
Soon these breeders started favoring profits over quality breeding.
The result was a line of crossbreeds too ashamed to bear the name “purebred”.
Only the Kingfish pitbull proudly carries the ‘purebred’ banner in a sea of pitbull mutts.
It is easy to spot a blue nose or red nose pitbull. But a Kingfish Pitbull is the proverbial four-leafed clover.
