You bought him from a reputable breeder and you have the registration papers and pedigree.
That's the best test.

DNA testing is the best was to find out for sure you can learn more about that by calling (801) 936-7513 visiting the adba website and e-mailing them http://www.adba.cc or writing them by mail ADBA p.o. box 1771 Salt Lake city, UT 84110. They'll help get you in the right direction for DNA profiling it will probably cost you around 100 bucks but my gazette is a little outdated.

Give your dog a red ball to play with, if it tears it to pieces and looks like it is out of control in a rage it's probably a Pit bull. It will not be a pure bred though as Pitbulls are just mongrels bred to be as vicious as possible. There is a reason these dogs have been banned and destroyed in most of the civilized countries of the world and I look forward to the day the US follows suit. Don't try and tell me how they are" so sweet and misunderstood" when all the evidence says otherwise.
Answer by rg0226 in reply to Issa
You make very ignorant comments about a breed you have no clue about. I own an American Pit Bull Terrier and she is very loving, gentle, and loyal. I have seen dogs that are much smaller that are more violent or aggressive than her. If you started hearing about all the kids bitten by Chihuahuas or Cairn Terriers, you probably would think they were vicious as well. But, you won't because a baby's face getting bitten up by Pomeranian isn't news worthy. Dogs are like mirrors. They are a reflection of their owners. Think about that before you write off a breed.

People are so ignorant. I own 2 pits myself, one female and one male. Anyone she comes in contact with, she will lay on her back waiting for a belly rub! Not mean bone in her body- now dont get me wrong, when it comes to the family and protecting her home, I'm sure the instinct will come out to protect; but that is with any dog. My male is Blue Gotti Bloodline. Though he looks big and mean, he is super gentle and sweet. I've come across chihuahua's that were more aggressive then any pits I've met.
**its the owner, not the dog that makes them mean!**

i have a pitbull named Scout. He's black with a white patch on his chest & on tips of his feet. He's my very best friend in the world. He's so gentle & loving. He has a deep bark that sounds threatening to people who may not know him, which would make him an outstanding guard dog IF he didn't lick every living soul to death that he came near, stranger or not! He loves to play with ropes & tennis balls, sit pretty for treats, & snuggle up with me & my boyfriend in bed at night (even tho he knows he isn't supposed to be on furniture!) He is SO loyal that i cannot even take a shower without him laying right there on the bathroom rug. He gets along PERFECTLY with my catahoula/golden retriever mix & has NEVER had any problems with other dogs & he's not even neutered. With that being said, the only EVIDENCE i have is Scout, & he leads me to believe that pit bulls ARE sweet & misunderstood. they're like children — product's of their raising. & if anyone tried to destroy MY DOG, they'd have to destroy me first, & i don't see that happenin. You look forward to the day the US destroys pit bulls, & i look forward to the day you realize how wrong you are. It would be like a doggie holocaust, destroying a certain race (breed) because of misconceptions. How much more ignorant can you get??? ……
