Is a pit bull a breed of bull Dog?
Yes. The American Pit Bull Terrier is the product of crossing terriers and bulldogs. They are working dogs suitable for a wide range of duties due to their high energy, intelligence, and endurance.
The American Pit Bull Terrier was first bred to bait bulls, a sport where the dog was placed in a pit for a specified amount of time with a number of rats. This inhumane practice led to "pit" being added to its name.
The American Pit Bull Terrier has received negative publicity, which has given it a fearsome reputation. Miami-Dade Florida commissioners recently voted to allow a ban repeal for the breed on the August 14 ballot. Earlier this year, the Ohio Legislature also lifted a statewide ban.
