Razors Edge Pitbulls are mixed breed dogs that have been selectively bred to be more loyal and calm. They are also bred to have the standard physical characteristics of a Pitbull; in particular, they are short and muscular.

Razors Edge Pitbulls were first bred in the 1980s by breeders Dave Wilson and Carlos Barksdale. They are specially bred to be pleasant, loving companions. They often have better social skills than traditional Pitbulls.

These dogs are a mixture of Pitbull, Mastiff, and American Bulldog. Because the Razors Edge Pitbulls are mixed breed dogs, they are not show dogs, and the breed is not recognized as a pure APBT breed. They are ideal for people who want a pet with the Pitbull aesthetics but do not want to show it competitively or use it as a fighting or game dog.

When purchasing a Razors Edge Pitbull, it is important to buy a dog from a reputable breeder. Some breeders mix other breeds to achieve similar aesthetic traits to a Razors Edge Pitbull without achieving the calm demeanor that they are famous for. Purchasing a dog from a quality breeder should ensure a dog that is loyal, calm, muscular, short and strong. Reputable Razors Edge Pitbull breeders should not charge more than $2,000 per puppy as of 2014.
