You bought him from a reputable breeder and you have the registration papers and pedigree.

That’s the best test.

  1. Issa, get bent! Your an idiot.

    • Jorge i agree w u! What is wrong w u Issa i wanted to leave her a comment btw it looks like she blocked for her to get comments! Ignorant ppl like her r the cause for y there’s so much prejudice! Issa keep ur negative comments to urself. Don’t b mad at this breed just cause u don’t like urself n ur short comings.

    I agree with you 110%!! 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!**

  3. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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??? ……

    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.

    If your dog is a "pit bull" there are a number of breeds your dog could be in acuality.
    Most commonly:
    American Pit Bull Terrier
    American Staffordshire Terrior
    Staffordshire Bull Terrier
    American Bulldog
    Dogo Argentino

  7. A DNA test is the best way to see if your dog is a purebred, here are some links to check out.

    Put it in a ring and see if it wins.

    Seriously, we just had a major BUST here of one of the top three pit-bull (fighting dog) breeders in the country. Supposedly three of the major lines came from here (Tucson area). Even the feds are gettin involved.

    SO, if you don't have papers, you will never be 'sure', unless you do the "DNA test":

  9. bouncy_rocks says:

    A "Pit Bull" is a term for a few different type of breeds that fall under that umbrella, called "Pit Bull Types."

    There is no such thing as a pure bred "pit bull", as stated. There is an American Pit Bull Terrier, but that is not the only breed that people call Pit Bulls.

    Good luck.

    Where did you get him? Take him to a good vet. You can also send pictures to CKC and they can help you.

    There's only ONE way to test for pure breed… and it's the DNA testing that is now available and is highly accurate.
