A dog descended from bull and terrier crosses created as a dogfighting breed. A gamebred animal with drive and heart. Capable of becoming a loyal, loving family pet. Often fond of children. Easy to train by a firm handler. The choice breed for irresponsible owners.
This breed has been given a horrible name, mainly due to the media hype focusing on so-called 'dangerous' breeds. In reality, the APBT is one of the only breeds ever bred specifically to be extremely friendly to humans.
They do NOT have locking jaws. They do not make good guard dogs.
Petey, the dog in The Little Rascals, was an American Pit Bull Terrier.

The UKC was founded by an APBT owner, and the first breed registered with the UKC was APBT Bennett's Ring.

The APBT was a popular icon of American Pride during the 1990s, decorating war posters and representing the country's strength and dignity.
