There are very few breeds that actually legitimately fall under the category of “Pit Bull.” The American Pit Bull Terrier is one such breed. The trouble is that the breed also very much resembles several other types of dogs, and people can end up losing their pets due to breed bans simply because of resemblance and misidentification. A great book by Bronwen Dickey covers its history quite well. A great read on the history of the American Pit Bull. So, is it a Pit Bull, or not? The American Pit Bull Terrier is actually a very friendly dog, weighs no more than 60 pounds, and is good with kids. Many larger breeds, cross-breeds and mixed breeds also resemble the American Pit Bull Terrier except when it comes to size. There are people out there breeding absolute brutes, often for criminal purposes, and they don’t even resemble American Pit Bulls all that much except when it comes to markings.
