Chris Brown Breeding and Selling Pit Bull Puppies

It has been reported that popular pop star Chris Brown has been breeding American Pit Bull Terrier puppies and selling them on a website called CB Breeds. Brown has the puppies listed for 1,000 dollars each and the site guarantees that they come with registration, current vaccinations, veterinarian examination, health guarantee, and four generation performance pedigree. His publicist said Brown is just trying to find good homes for a litter his family dogs had in Virginia.

There was a recent release from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles stating that Brown is a “backyard breeder” and he should use his publicity to encourage people to adopt Pit Bulls from a shelter rather than sell them himself. The spcaLA President, Madeline Bernstein was quoted saying, “There is no reason to breed and produce more Pit Bull puppies when there are Pit puppies waiting for homes in every shelter in America.” (Almendrala)

Because Pit Bulls are commonly known to be used for fighting dogs they tend to have a violent reputation. Families can be put off from adopting them which creates an overflow of these dogs into local animal shelters. People are encouraged to learn that this breed can be loyal, good with children and great companions with the right training and care.

It is up to your own discretion on whether or not he is selling Pit Bull puppies for the “wellbeing of finding them a good home” or if he is doing it for personal profit. Looking into his past of domestic violence and being that he has no experience with breeding animals, what do you think Chris Brown’s motives are? Would you buy a Pit Bull puppy from this pop star?
