    ok for those of you that show ADBA/AADR.Would you say a clean dog versus a marked up dog would have a better chance of placing, then the dog that is marked up?

    I have seen both. . .but I think it depends on the marks and how much there are. . .

    Also the judges preference plays a huge part here, so some old timer judges may actually like that. .. but again. .

    preference.

    Unfortunately I have seen known fighting dogs with heavy scars go into the ring and win in ADBA. One even had fresh staples that were not even a week old and took BOB. I think it really just depends on who is judging.

    Ive seen it a couple times where marked up dogs have won. Hell ive seen Gr Ch MachoBuck win plenty. Ive even seen a black dog that had a accident the week before and his whole left side of his face was opened up and the owner just put black shoe polish to cover it up but it was still very noticable.

    I don't think judges hold scars against the dogs at all.....

    I agree it depends on who is judging.

    This year in Sorrento my boyfriend showed his dog who won 1st a yr ago in Sorrento. Well the judge kept looking at the dog then looking at his legs. Then walking around the dog then looking at his legs. Spent a few minutes looking over him abut always went back to his legs. He was in an accident a few months before. All the cuts were healed but there was still hair missing.

    Seen ADBA judge GH pick a 4XW as BIS in OK. He even referred to the dog as an old warrior. Seen Machobuck get BIS and my male got judges choice at the same AADR show in TX. I do agree that it depends on the judges preferences. But, in my opinion a Bulldog should be picked over a show dog at APBT shows.

    i had a judge tell me one time "im not going to hold his scars against him-im not gonna punish a working dog" and yes the "old warrior" line was there aswell (this dog was 11years old whilst showing)
