American Pit Bull Terrier

The American Pit Bull Terrier (also known as ‘Yankee Terrier’, and closely related to the American Staffordshire Terrier) derived from crossing Bulldogs with an older Terrier line. The American breed was reared largely for illegal dog fighting (the ‘Pit’ in Pit Bull likely derives from fighting pits) in the United States and was recognized as a distinct breed in 1936. American Pit Bull Terriers became popular with ranchers and farmers for protection, companionship, and catching hogs and cattle. Despite its media reputation for ferociousness, the American Pit Bull Terrier is an affectionate dog which has risen to popularity as a pet. The American Pit Bull Terrier’s natural aggression is directed toward other dogs, not humans, and even this can be overcome with training. They often serve as search dogs or police dogs.
The American Pit Bull Terrier has a shoulder height of 46-56 cm (18-22 in) and weighs 22.5-32 kg (50-70 lb). American Pit Bull Terriers have highly set, pointy ears which may be cropped, a broad head, wide cheeks, short back and tail (undocked), and wide, straight forelegs. They are very stocky, muscular, and powerful. The American Pit Bull Terrier has round eyes and teeth that form a scissor bite. Unlike the American Staffordshire Terrier, they are allowed nose leather of any color. The American Pit Bull Terrier is usually taller but with smaller head and bones.
