Someone had posted a link about how many breeds of dogs look like and get misidentified as pit bulls. I'd love to post that on our local newspaper site to educate the masses of ignorance. Anyone remember what site or thread it was posted in?

Haha, some of those dogs look nothing like a pit bull. Is a pit even a recognized breed now?

Here's my big bad "pit bull"

The "pitbull" isn't really one single recognized breed in America, it's sort of a catch all name for dogs that look a certain way. The AKC does not recognize them, but the UKC does.

American Pit Bull Terrier, Pit Bulls, Pitbulls

The American Staffordshire Terrier is an AKC recognized pure breed commonly mistaken for an APBT.

Being a UKC recognized breed, I don't understand why it's not AKC recognized. Who knows, maybe they haven't closed the stud books yet.

NP. That's one of the first things that pops up if you google "Find the pitbull." There's also a YouTube video I like to show sometimes, if you want to show them some in your face graphic pics and some actual facts.
