@DeadlyNightshade:  The American Kennel Club had designations for several different “bully” breeds. They really don’t recognize the designation “pit bull” because historically what that signifies is a bully breed dog bred for pit fighting. The “Old Pit Bull Terrier” breed (so called till the 19th century) is now called the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and was only accepted into the kennel club when it had been proven that fighting temperament had been bred out of it to make it a suitable show dog.

People today seem to use the term “Pit Bull” to describe any dog with the physical characteristics of a Staffordshire Terrier, never minding the actual dog’s background. My dog, which is colloquially called a “pit mix” (or a Lab mix, so the vet has kindly put it on the official paper) is likely a lab mixed with a bull terrier – the little dog from the Target ads!
