The American Pit Bull Terrier is a companion and family dog. Originally bred to “bait” bulls, the breed evolved into all-around farm dogs, and later moved into the house to become “nanny dogs” because they were so gentle around children.
Their tenacity, gameness, and courage make them popular competitors in the sports of weight pulling, agility, and obedience competition. Full American Pit Bull Terrier profile on
