Is that really a Pit Bull?


Black and white pit bullSomething you may not know? There really isn't a "pit bull" breed. It's a name for a group of bully type dogs including the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Some people even include American Bull Dogs in this group. It's complicated, but that's not exactly what we are here to discuss...
