American Pit Bull Terrier

American Pit Bull Terrier


Height: 18-22 inches

Weight: 30-70 lbs.

Life Span: 11-13 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
Despite its reputation, the extraordinarily muscled American pit bull terrier can be a wonderful family companion if bred for gentle temperament and trained at a young age.

The breed can also be stubborn and aggressive, so early socialization with all kinds of people and animals is crucial.

Appearance
The muscular pit bull terrier has a bricklike shape and powerful jaws. Its short, glossy coat comes in all colors and markings, including brindle, white with patches of color, black, and red.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The pit bull's short coat needs to be brushed once a week with a rubber brush. This active dog needs a few long walks and some playtime in a secured area daily.

Origins
The American pit bull terrier, a cross between Staffordshire bull terriers and an extinct fighting bulldog, was bred in the 19th century for dogfighting.

Special Alerts
The American pit bull terrier is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners. It can be especially aggressive with other dogs. Prospective owners should avoid selecting puppies from fighting stock.

It is especially important to obtain an American pit bull terrier from a reputable breeder, as there are, unfortunately, some who choose to breed the most aggressive animals and then train them to maim or kill.
Avoid puppies under seven weeks of age that are sold off the street.
