American Pit Bull Terrier breed Standard 2023
A breed standard is a template to identify characteristics of a dog that may qualify him to be a duplicate of the dog in the breed, but it cannot guarantee that he is the breed. Most people won’t tell you that. The breed standards were created by desk people, not field people who understand the breed deeply. The AKC desk people and the UKC desk people are examples of this. The UKC breed standard has one advantage: they used images of dogs developed by real dozens of this time, including Earl Tudor. The first time a breed standard was created by a man who was active deep in the breed and genius was in 1974 when Del Brandstrom, a partner, and a long-time friend of Ralph Greenwood, made the breed standard. He modeled the pictures of Tudor’s ACE, including the dimensions. That is the standard that the ADBA uses.
The biggest mistake people make with breed standards is thinking that they are a guarantee of quality in a dog. There has never been a top-of-the-top show dog that is better than the most elite dogs in the world. Then you wonder why this is. It’s because the standards were based on dogs that already existed, except for the American Staffordshire Terrier, which was made out of thin air to absorb the APBT and stay away from the UKC, for purely competitive business reasons. The AKC did not have the creators of the breed behind them; what they had was desk people with ideas and processes of work that they used on other breeds.
So, the APBT is the only breed with a true process, and for over 80 years and for most of the development of the breed, the process was “best to best.” This was done by creators, breeders, doggers, and fanciers of the breed. They did not need a standard as the best dog was the breed, and the idea was to breed the best males to the best females, create consistent bloodlines, and bingo! It’s not so easy in every community; you have the 80/20 rule, where 20% do the work, and the other 80% are just fillers or babies in the process. Not in the APBT. The rule is like 99/1, as less than 1% are those that create bloodlines and build great things with a vision, and the other 99% are dog owners, breeders (cancer), doggers, fanciers, etc. So, the best dogs come from the most elite men, not show people.
In 2014, the same man, Del Brandstrom, strolled over some pictures of GR CH and Champion. He saw one picture and said, “This is the most perfect APBT I have ever seen; this is the standard.” What dog is this? Well, it was Siega the Great, bred by Chico Lopez and one that was the Dog of the Year, the Global Grand Champion, and Best in Show. The biomechanics and everything were the dog. He said, “It is amazing how, after so many years, I can pick up the best dog by looking at the form and standard. Siega proves to be the most perfect dog in every way; she is the update of the breed standard.”
So, the process of “best to best” was called the framework of the breed. The best female is bred by the best male, and the APBT is that best dog. I remember when Mayday, yes, GR CH Mayday ROM, came in 1996; he was the best dog on earth and he was the breed. Siega was the best dog on earth both breed by elite dogmen, One by Ernest Hollingsworth and One by Chico Lopez. Both were developed by the Framework and the mind of the master breeders. the breed standard of the American Pit Bull Terrier is essential for maintaining the integrity and purity of the breed. While the breed standard is not a guarantee of quality, it provides a set of guidelines for breeders to produce dogs that match the desired characteristics of the breed. The APBT breed standard was created by dogmen and enthusiasts with deep knowledge and understanding of the breed rather than desk people without field experience.
The APBT breed standard is based on the Picture image and character of the best dog of the breed. Siega The Great in Pictures and Videos, sweet with Children and other dogs, playful, and joyful. The best Wild hog hunter has ever seen. Like a Guiden Himars, one shot, one kill. The Standard is a guide so you can be like a real dog. The framework is a process where the breed was created, including: the physical structure and functional abilities of the dog, which includes size, weight, body proportions, muscular build, and TEMPERAMENT
Siega The Great, bred by Chico Lopez, is a global grand champion of the breed standard. She IS the update of the breed standard, created by Del Brandstrom based on the dimensions of Tudor’s ACE. Siega The Great’s biomechanics and overall form make her the perfect representation of the breed standard.
The American Pit Bull Terrier is a loving and loyal dog known for its “dog of velvet and steel” temperament, making it an excellent nanny dog. With responsible breeding practices, we can ensure that the breed continues to thrive for generations. Now you know why I protect The Golden Vein from breeders.

SIEGA THE GREAT
In the world of American Pit Bull Terriers, there have been many great dogs over the years, but few can compare to Siega the Great. Bred by Chico Lopez, Siega was one of the pillar dogs from the Golden Vein bloodline, and she quickly established herself as one of the greatest APBTs in history.
Siega was a true embodiment of the APBT breed standard, possessing strength, athleticism, intelligence, and loyalty in equal measure. She was also a stunningly beautiful dog, with a muscular build, a shiny coat, and a regal presence that commanded respect wherever she went.

Chico Lopez, Siega’s breeder and owner, continues to be a passionate advocate for the APBT breed and for the preservation of the Golden Vein bloodline. He believes that dogs like Siega are a testament to the true nature of the APBT, and he works tirelessly to promote the breed and to educate people about its many virtues. Siega as puppy had another puppy scratched her eye , which turned of a dark gray color. By 10 months old she became such , heavy temperatures. The veterinarian told Chico or removed the ye or she dies. That is how she lost her one eye . The workers called her seguiha , and that is how she became Ciega, yet she was not blind so Chico Lopez modified the spelling to Siega , and later earned the great.
