I just wanted to say, it's been a week since I purchased my pup from Rebecca. My little male is such a good guy, you know Rebecca gave the
pups a great start in life with a proper upbringing. The whole experience of dealing with a professional breeder has been a good experience.
And being able to find the kind, their aren't many left. Thanks Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, we are so excited to get our little girl. This is our 3rd dog from you and we couldn’t be happier. You are such a great person and your dogs are so well taken care of and not to mention beautiful. If anyone has any doubts about getting a dog from you, feel free to have them contact me, because I have nothing bad and everything good to say. The fact that you make sure they go to good homes, says a lot about you. Thank you, Thank you! I promise to send pictures to show how spoiled she will be with the other two. Much love from all of us.

I was pretty hesitant about buying a dog I couldn't go see myself, being out of state and all. Looking at all the other ORFN kennels that had a Wilder blood background that I didn't want, I decided to give it a go with AHOSK. Boy am I glad I did! Got my awesome red brindle pup this November all the way to Texas! Rebecca made the whole process easy, and I couldn't recommend her enough! I'm sure these dogs will excel at anything you throw at them! My pup is already digging for moles, keeping away the foxes! Cant wait till he catches one!

A heart of stone kennels. This is our second AHOSK pup we have add to our family. Both having the best temperament. From the start making sure we would be a right fit, to answering all of our questions. Very knowledgeable. We appreciate the extra mile we feel you have taken with us. Making sure our pup arrived to us from California to Connecticut happy, healthy, and best of all worry free. Knowing we can reach out with any questions makes all the difference. The enthusiasm for what you do shows. Thank you Rebecca. The Deleon family

Hi, this is my 1st time visiting and just wanted to say I'm already a fan. I owned a blue nose apbt, he was an xl a larger dog but with very proportional structure albeit heavier. Although I advocate for all animals I believe the new mutants as I call the bullies are a creation/victim of unscrupulous breeders. I love your dogs and what you are doing. I will definitely come back when you have more pups. Thanks!

Rebecca is the 5th breeder I have bought a dog from and by far the best . In the past after getting the dog I could never get a hold of the breeder ,Rebecca returns calls ,text and is always there to help out and answer questions . Talk to her once and you know how passionate she is about her dogs . I truly believe she would rather keep all puppies rather than sell them , she isn't in it for the money . If you have bought a pup from her you know that's true . Her dogs are amazing , the bloodline are some of the best . Her passion for her dogs and A Heart of Stone Kennels makes her one of the best Ambassadors for the APBT . I bought Ghost about a month ago and he just blows everyone away , his looks his stance , his gate he looks like a horse . I can't thank you enough Rebecca .

I have nothing but good things to say about the experience of buying a pup from A Heart of Stone Kennels. Rebecca went out of her way to answer all of my questions and help me pick the perfect pup from the litter. I am in Colorado and was concerned about buying a pup sight unseen and having it shipped across the country. Rebecca alleviated all concerns with her excellent communication and regularly updated pictures. My pup, Keegan, arrived two days ago and I could not be happier. She is a beautiful little girl with exactly the temperament I was looking for. She is confident, inquisitive and very intelligent. She is picking up on the potty training thing very quickly and loves everyone she meets. I was worried about her adjusting to the cold Colorado fall but she is a hardy, healthy pup and not much seems to faze her. Her form and structure are impressive and she is very athletic for such a young girl. I have had nothing but compliments on her appearance. If I was buying another APBT or recommending a breeder to someone, Rebecca would hands down be my first choice. Great person producing great dogs. Thanks again for everything!

Just received my pup yesterday (May '19.) Form and structure looks great, but with his pedigree I wasn't worried about that. His disposition is excellent: Curious, intelligent, and immediately social. He gelled with the baby and the rest of the family immediately. Economically this deal makes a ton of sense too. Rebecca was very helpful and made the transaction painless. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Hi Rebecca,
Looking forward to getting a new pup. Years back we had a female produced by you. Best dog ever. She has since past and we want another. Will stay tuned to future pups.

It's so nice to see someone doing what's good for the APBT as opposed to trying to make a buck on the latest "Fad Puppy Mills" that produce some unhealthy monsters. These dogs should be part of our families & treated with as much respect. You have beautiful dogs Rebecca & anyone looking for a strong authentic APBT need look no further.

Consider all u who bought apbt from this site lucky a** f*** best looking apbt I ever seen and Im gonna get one for sure already have one but not from this site can't wait


Bray  "Rayne"

2:09 PM on April 9, 2011 

I just wanted to say that working with Rebecca to get Rayne was fantastic, she helped me with all the questions I had before and continuing since I got Rayne. Rayne was my first dog I ever got shipped from anywhere and I was worried about ... Well pretty much everything. Rebecca would always get back to me promptly with any questions or concerns I had either by phone or email. Rayne is growing to be beautiful although she is only 9 months old now she resembles her parents more and more everyday. Rebecca has been nothing but helpful and I look forward to possibly getting another dog from her in the future.



3:00 AM on February 1, 2011 

You have some of the best quality dogs that I have ever seen and my family will not be complete until I have one I look forward to doing business with you.



4:02 PM on November 29, 2010 

finally. there seems to be a problem with the space between pups for sale and guestbook but i got it! hahah.
Let me just say first, that Rebecca seems to definitely have real passion for what she does.
And a great approachable attitude, she's willing to share information and answer any question you might have, to get you closer to a perfect match for you and your family.
Thanks for a positive experience and look forward to future possibilities

Hey Rebecca,
Just wanted to say thanks again. Mocha's doing really well, we can't wait to show her once she's old enough. We're eagerly awaiting the arrival of Iris as well. We truly feel that your dogs are some of the best around, and we look forward to having them as part of our kennel.
PS. I can't figure out why I have two profiles on here.

6:30 PM on April 20, 2010 

Hello Rebecca I know you know who this is. It is Sassy I had to write u on here to let u know how much I do appreciate the hook up with the pup and the tips u gave me. As I start to take Sassy around people are just dumb found about how pretty she is and how her temperament is they really love her. She is a hand full at times but that is what I asked for. Of course there is nothing in Deigo that even kind of looks like her so she is the cats again thanks and I will stay in touch

2:11 AM on April 1, 2010 

Hi Rebecca! I'm not sure if you remember but we bought our precious cream/white male pup from you? I'm not sure if you remember but my mom & I drove out there 2 Cali to pick him up?, we named our pup Bantay's Red Manson....He's a very loving pup....he's doing very well with us here in AZ....Everywhere we take him we get compliments about him. We are so proud of him,he is just as spoiled as my youngest haven't uploaded recent photos of him but I will soon....Thanks 4 everything! Manson really brought our family a lil closer thanks to you....thank you!!


Gene @ Prairie Pits

9:27 PM on February 27, 2010 

I'm not easily impressed by other breeders, but WOW. I'm am completely floored by the amazing dogs on this site. I'm definitely going to buy a pup from you this summer.
It's nice to see that people still respect and love REAL American Pit Bull Terriers.



3:39 PM on February 17, 2010 

I was kind of web surfing, looking for pit bull sites and came across this one. I have an OFRN, so your dogs caught my eye. There are some really great dogs here. Do you also raise and sell Frenchies? I am kind of considering them, I am getting older and my daughters keep telling me I need smaller. i don't know about all of that. This isn't anything I will be doing soon. Cayenne is only 7.

Anastasia "Kyah"

9:02 PM on May 30, 2009  by

We recieved a puppy through A Heart of Stone Kennels - who is a sweet and very obedient little girl. She's the offspring of Thor (and looks just like daddy) and Chloe and she is so good and well behaved. I love her so much - she truly is my best friend. We named her Kyah and she is such a beauty and has the prettiest green eyes. I couldn't have asked for a better APBT. Thank you so much!



12:42 AM on April 23, 2009  by

Hi Rebecca,
Let me know when Mercy is pregnant and let me know when you have pictures of EINSTEIN X TIGER and CRUSHER X BOUNCE

Little Lucy
Thank you, I couldn't be happier with Lucy she is such a joy so sweet and so playful, She's a beautiful girl and I couldn't have asked for anything more! She loves everyone and is eager to explore, she got along great with my parents cattle dog. She is so happy and resilient. What a wonderful Pup! The parents are also beautiful, healthy, and happy. You can easily see Rebecca cares for her pups large and small, she went over all the paperwork with me so I would understand. I know I can ask her if I have any questions and she's pleased to answer them. Thanks Again! ~Sarah Long

Hi guys, your dogs are the most awesome pit bulls I've ever come across. Confirmation, temperament, and well socialized.Thanks for the opportunity of having a puppy from you. Thanks again! Joseph



3:58 PM on March 3, 2009 

Very Professional, Outstanding dogs and Service
We could not be happier with our little puppy from A Heart Of Stone Kennels. He arrived in New York from California in great shape: clean, energetic, and guess what? HOUSE TRAINED! That's right, the little eight week old puppy is house trained already. He did not go once in the house, and he sits when he wants to be carried out to go to the bathroom. Soo cute! Our entire family and friends love him. His dew claws were done perfectly. Great job. Thank you!! Joe and Christiane Capizzi

Gabe "Stella"

Just wanted to share how pleased I am with y lil girl Stella. This breeder went beyond and above the mile. She was very honest and made our experience a pleasant one. Our conversations were great and comforting.. also learning a few new things as well. My wife and i went to pick up the pup (Stella) at the airport only to me amazed in the condition she came in.. very clean, nice size crate (not in on of those little cramped up cheap cat carriers), flight arrangements were exactly what she had explained, and OHH... the nails!! They were nice and short.... clipped, grinned. whatever. I would just like to say thank you again our lil girls awesome!!!!!! To who ever is looking for a new pup this breeder was excellent, the puppy was, is above and beyond our expectations! Gabe



12:31 PM on March 8, 2008
