Unfortunately, Pit Bulls get a lot of bad press. Experts say the culture of dogfighting has contributed to a lot of this. But aggressive dogs aren’t born — they’re made that way.

Though Pit Bulls originate from England and Ireland, there is some dispute as to their actual origins. And despite their prevalence in America, the American Pit Bull Terrier is currently not recognized by the American Kennel Club.
The word “Pitbull” doesn’t refer to one dog breed. Rather, it refers to a type of dog and can be derived from 4 distinct pedigree breeds: American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and the American Bulldog.
With that said, Pitbulls are typically medium-sized dogs with muscular bodies. More often than not, they will have cropped ears and can come in a variety of terrier colors. They are compact and dense, with a powerful yet effortless gait.
