I’ll go straight to that. Pit bulls are legit
breed of dog, but they are known for their
name of American Pit Bull Terrier.
Anything else is not a Pit Bull nor should it
be called Pit Bull.
How did the whole “pit bull” thing come about?
Good question, so here is my answer …
Fans of the breed refer to their dogs using
a variety of terms. The most common are, Pit Bull,
Pit Bulldog, Pit Bull Terrier or a simple bulldog.
Where everything got out of control was when
people who did not know what a real pitbull is
It seemed like I started calling anything that looked like
the dogs, “pitbulls” and viola !, we are more confused
There are many breeds of dogs that are similar in
appearance and origin as the American Pit Bull Terrier
and this, once again, has led to the problem of misidentifying
other breeds like Pit Bulls.
Some breeds that are often confused with American Pit Bull
Terriers (also known as Pit Bulls) are:
1. American Bulldogs.
2. Cane Corso’s.
3. Canerio’s Dam.
4. Dogo Argentino’s.
5. Mixed breed dogs of any of the above breeds.
7. Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
8. Bull Terriers.
The list goes on and on, but the reality is this …
The only dog on planet earth that is a “Pit Bull” is
the American Pit Bull Terrier. This is the only race in
land that has “Pit Bull” in its official name.
So why doesn’t the American Kennel Club recognize
Pit Bulls as a breed?
For starters, remember when we talked about how people
started calling anything that looked like an American Pit
Bull Terrier a “pitbull” well, there is a number one reason.
Another reason is that they are quite tense and think that
any dog not recognized by them is not a purebred dog. This
It’s the furthest thing from the truth, but millions of people
buy into their ideology and promote incorrect information.
As proof, you only need to search for the United Kennel Club
or the American Dog Breeders Association to see how true
Pit Bull is and what American Pit Bull Terriers are indeed
a purebred dog.
American Pit Bull Terriers (real pit bulls) are loyal, strong,
and I love challenges. That is why they are working dogs that
They excel at hard work that other races shy away from.
His love for people is legendary and that is why
they are so easy to exploit and are exploited on a daily basis
by thousands of ignorant, greedy and sadistic people who
use them for the wrong reasons.
So to summarize this article and give a final answer to
the question, are pit bulls a legitimate breed or a mix
half Blood …
The real Pit Bull or the American Pit Bull Terrier is
in fact, a legitimate breed of dog that excels at almost
any task to which they are entrusted.
