Who and what is the APBR?

The APBR is an African Pit Bull Registration body for the American Pit Bull Community. We register American Pit Bulls throughout the whole of Africa and is represented in Namibia, Angola, Mozambique, Botswana and most South African provinces and with the promise to be expanding to other African countries shortly.

Why do we have representatives in each country?

The APBR wants to be the preferred American Pit Bull registration body in Africa offering through our various representatives the most efficient and convenient service to our members. To minimize the amount of fraudulent registrations our representatives are specially chosen Dogmen active within their pit bull communities and have excellent APBT knowledge unlike other registration bodies with only 1 office.

In our aim to be the preferred American Pit Bull registry in Africa, our certificates are specially designed to be of international standard. Through this the APBR is the only internationally recognized registry and affiliated with the ICDR and the APDR of which both are some of the biggest APBT show and registration bodies in the World.

The APBR are also currently undergoing talks with the largest APBT registration body in Eastern Europe to be affiliated and recognized by them.
