5 Types of Pit Bull Dog Breeds

There's a lot of misinformation and confusion surrounding pit bulls. For starters, a pit bull isn't a specific breed. Instead, it's an umbrella term that's used for several breeds. Pit bull-type dogs often face unfair discrimination. These dogs were bred for their muscular build and consequently have been used in inhumane dogfighting sports. This has given them an inaccurate reputation as being overly aggressive dogs. In fact, pit bull-type dogs are usually incredibly loving, loyal, and gentle with their family members. They also tend to be playful and eager to please.

Here are the five dog breeds that are most commonly referred to as pit bull-type dogs.

Breed Characteristics

Pit bull-type dogs typically have muscular, stocky builds with deep chests and large, square heads. They’re notoriously determined dogs. When given a task, whether it be learning a new trick or digging a hole, they won’t give up easily. And they usually love people, including strangers, and crave attention. Training and socialization from a young age is important for pit bulls. Otherwise their size and strength can be difficult to handle, as they might pull hard on a leash or jump up on people to greet them. 


Due to the stigma surrounding these breeds, certain areas have banned ownership of pit bull-type dogs. Make sure to check your local legislation before bringing one of these dogs home.


Types of Pitbull Dog Breeds: Differences, Appearances, & Traits

So you think you know what a Pitbull is? Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but according to a variety of research, it is very likely that you don’t! The University of Florida found that dog shelter workers, including Veterinarians, commonly mistake a variety of dogs as Pitbull type breeds, which not only is incorrect, but it can have a multitude of devastating consequences for the mislabeled pups.  Many of these pups are just random mixed breed dogs, or some type of Pitbull mix.

The term ‘Pitbull’ is not a dog as such, but a general label given to a few dog breeds with similar origins, appearance and temperaments. The four Pitbull type breeds are the American Pitbull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the American Bully. Despite their vicious reputation and their increased numbers in shelters, they are anything but vicious if they are raised properly.

This guide is going to set out the facts from the fiction regarding everything Pitbull.  We bet that you will learn something new about Pitbull type dogs that you didn’t know before. We’ve also compiled not only a comparison of the different types of Pitbull dogs, but also a full list of myths versus reality below.


Defining Pitbulls

Defining the Pitbull Breed

Officially, a Pitbull is not actually a dog breed in itself. It’s an umbrella term used for dogs who descend from Bulldogs and Terriers. There are four official breeds of the Pitbull type dog. However, often other similar looking breeds will also be chucked under the Pitbull label, which we will look into further in the next section. The American Pitbull Terrier is the main dog breed that is associated with the term Pitbull. Often when someone is talking about a Pitbull, they will more than likely be referring to an American Pitbull Terrier.

Terriers, who are known for their agility and feistiness, and Bulldogs, who are known for their brute strength, were bred together to create the perfect fighting dog. This breed was meant to be tenacious and powerful. Pitbull type dogs first originated in Great Britain. This is where bear and bull-baiting were popular but cruel, blood sports.

In 1835, when the Cruelty to Animals Act was enacted, this sport was thankfully stopped. But the spectators and participants quickly turned their attention to dogfighting events. They were cheaper to organize and easier to drive underground so to hide the events from law enforcement. Not only did these events involve gambling, but they enabled owners to showcase their dog’s gameness and strength. The last dog standing, or fighting, won their owner the prize and reputation of breeding the best dogs around.


This is where the Pitbull type dog’s vicious reputation started. However, on an important note, all fighting dogs were obviously trained to be extremely vicious towards other dogs. But, as soon as a human entered the ring, they were trained not to attack. This is where their love of humans also stems from. Any dog that displayed human aggression were culled.

After the Civil War, British immigrants began to arrive in America, with their fighting dogs in tow. It was here that American dogfighters wanted to create an even bigger and more powerful fighting dog breed. This was where the American Pitbull Terrier, American Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and American Bully were born.

Different Types of Pitbulls

Different Pitbull Type Dogs

The following four dog breeds are the most widely accepted Pitbull type dogs. However, just to make it slightly more confusing, some breeds are only accepted by certain Kennel Clubs. And some are accepted by all Kennel Clubs. Many people argue that the American Pitbull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier are the only two breeds that are true Pitbull type dogs. Others say that the American Pitbull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier are in fact the same breed of dog.

So, dependending on who you ask, you may well get a different answer, but all the information in this article is what is the most common belief or what is commonly accepted by the professionals in the canine world.


All Pitbull type dogs share their athletic and muscular look. Some may look more athletic than others. Some dogs are squatter and wider, some are taller and leaner. You can compare their heights and weights, according to their official breed standard, at the end of this section in the table. All Pitbull type dogs have a square-shaped head, a square fleshy nose, and big almond-shaped eyes.

All of their coats are short and smooth. They all require minimum bathing and brushing. Their tails are long and straight, and their ears tend to be rose-shaped, except of course when they have been cropped. Many owners still prefer this and adopt the look.

Coat Coloring

Pitbull type dogs come in pretty much any animal color you can think of, except for merle. While there are merle colored Pitbull type dogs out there, the merle color gene is not naturally found in these breeds. This means another breed with this color gene has been chucked into the mix at some point. Therefore a merle Pitbull type dog is not 100% of Pitbull origin. This color is not accepted by any breed club, so this is something to think about before paying the extra price tag for this color.


All four dogs tend to share the same temperament, adoring humans and craving their company. They also love to get involved in the family fun whether that be a game of football or a snooze on the sofa. They are very sweet and sensitive souls, and are particularly fond of children. This is how they earned their nickname, the nanny dog.

If not socialized adequately as a pup then they can display fear aggression against other dogs. But this is the same for a Chihuahua all the way up to a Great Dane. If they are socialized well they tend to be sociable with other dogs. Their eagerness to please their masters also means that they are a dream to train. If you are consistent in your training you will find an obedient Pittie sidekick on your hands. Let’s take a closer look at each Pitbull type dog and their specs.

American Pitbull Terrier

  • Height 17-21 Inches
  • Weight 30-65 Pounds

American Staffordshire

  • Height 17-19 Inches
  • Weight 40-70 Pounds

Staffordshire Bull Terrier

  • Height 14-16 Inches
  • Weight 24-40 Pounds

American Bully

  • Height 13-23 Inches
  • Weight 25-60 Pounds

American Pitbull Terrier

American Pitbull Terrier

As previously mentioned, this is the most commonly spoken of Pitbull. It’s the one that many think is the original, or the only, Pitbull type dog. This dog is not recognized as a breed by the American Kennel Club (AKC). He is, however, recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC). It is stated that this breed has maintained his breed type for well over 150 years. Because of this, he is considered to be a purebred dog by the UKC.

Upon arriving in America, ranchers and farmers couldn’t help but notice his athleticism, skill and obedience. These dogs quickly took employment on many farms and ranches as herders, and as hunters. Once his hard day’s work was completed, he became the family companion for his master and his family. The American Pitbull Terrier is one of the tallest out of the four breeds. Being taller means that he is a lot more athletic in appearance. For further information on his appearance, the UKC breed standard of the American Pitbull Terrier can be found here.

APBT’s come in a variety of different colors including brindle, black, white, brown or a mix of all of them.  Along with the label comes additional health conditions and often higher price tags. The American Pitbull Terrier is also often compared to the American Bulldog or compared to the Staffordshire Terrier even though they are different breeds.  They are also sometimes confused with the Dogo Argentino because they look similar.

Red Nose American Pitbull Terrier

Rednose Pitbull Terrier

A red nose American Pitbull Terrier will have exactly that, a red nose. With the red nose comes copper or earthy brown coat colors, such as brown, red, fawn or chestnut. His lips, eyes and toenails are also red in color. While they are certainly rarer than the typical American Pitbull Terrier, they are exactly the same in every other way. They do have a few additional health concerns linked to the recessive gene, which is discussed further below.

Because he is rarer in color, many unethical breeders breed genetically close red noses in order to increase the chances of their puppies also being red noses, and thus generating more money. This breeding practice is frowned upon because it leads to genetic defects and poor health.

If you are seeking a red nose American Pitbull Terrier be sure to work with an ethical breeder who can prove family lineage, and the health of the pups. Just because they often sell for a few thousand dollars does not mean that they have been bred correctly or well looked after. Make sure to do your own due diligence!

Blue Nose American Pitbull Terrier

Pitbull Terrier Outdoors

A blue nose American Pitbull Terrier is the same as the red nose American Pitbull Terrier, except he has a blue nose. His nose, lips, eyes, and toenails will be blue or grey in color, and he will be easily identifiable from a young age compared to the traditional black nose. Similar to other breeds, having a rarer coloring can come with a higher price tag, so be sure to work with a reputable breeder.

In addition to the inbreeding concerns given their smaller gene pool, the different color nose (including the red) is a result of low melanin levels. This is the pigment responsible for coloring in any living system, including us humans.

A deficiency in melanin, which is as a result of the recessive color gene, also creates additional health issues and diseases. It has been linked to skin allergies (which Pitbull type dogs are already prone to), heart diseases, eye conditions, and an increase in the chance of cancer and decreased immune system functionality. Which is all the more reason to work with a reputable breeder!

American Staffordshire Terrier

Amstaff Dog

The American Staffordshire Terrier, commonly shortened to the name ‘AmStaff’, is recognized by the AKC and not the UKC. He is ranked as the 85th most popular dog breed out of 193 breeds. Research suggests that he is much more popular than this, with most owners not registering them for breeding or conformation purposes. He has long been one of America’s favorite dogs, not only has he been the sidekick of 3 American Presidents, but he was also America’s most decorated war dog.

The American Staffordshire has long been a family companion. His sweet nature has won the hearts of millions, not just in America but across the world. Despite his formidable exterior he is known to be one of the sweetest dogs around, who not only loves his family very much but also everybody that he comes into contact with. For this reason, he does not make the greatest of natural guard dogs. For further information on his appearance, his full breed standard can be found here.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Staffordshire Bull Terrier

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is thought to be the most popular dog in Great Britain, yet being the 80th most popular breed in America his popularity has not quite caught on over here. He is recognized by all major Kennel Clubs, including the AKC and UKC. Staffies are described as clever, brave and tenacious. He’s an affectionate dog who has a real love for life!

He is the smallest of Pitbull type dogs too, sometimes by 7 inches in height. The biggest Staffordshire Bull Terriers are around the same weight as the smaller dogs amongst the other dogs. Being smaller, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a great choice for those who love Pitbull type dogs but have less room for the stockier versions. Further detailed information on his breed standard can be found here.

American Bully

American Bully

The American Bully is a descendant of the American Pitbull Terrier. Over time, he has become so distinct in appearance that he is now considered to be his own breed altogether. He is a relatively new breed that was developed in the 1980s, only recognized by the UKC in 2013. He is shorter than the American Pitbull Terrier and much wider than any of the breeds here in this article. These pups can be so wide that it often looks like his muscles have muscles! The American Bully is a larger pitbull-type dog, and has specific nutrition requirements.

He is recognized by the UKC, and not the AKC. The American Bully Kennel Club also recognizes him, and they recognize him in four distinct sizes: Pocket, Standard, Classic and XL (see sizes in the below table). The Classic American Bully is much narrower and less muscular than the other 3 sizes. Many people also believe that Micro and XXL American Bullies exist, and sell them as such, but these sizes are not officially recognized.

The most expensive American Bully, named White Rhino, was purchased for $250,000, and this exorbitant price tag is very rare. But American Bullies can be by far the most expensive dogs in America. The biggest American Bully on record is Hulk, who weighs a humongous 174 pounds! The American Bully is also often compared to the American Bulldog, English Bulldog, and (English) Bull Terrier.

Breed Specific Legislation

Pitbull type dogs are all subject to Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). This varies from country to country and state to state, all of which can, for example, enforce increased liability insurance all the way up to outright banning. Much research suggests that BSL is not effective and as such should be withdrawn.

Not only do owners have to deal with unfair and restrictive law, increases in insurance, and being excluded from home rentals, but they also have to deal with day-to-day prejudices from society thanks to a lack of education and the sensationalist media. This is despite controlled studies suggesting that Pitbull type dogs are not disproportionately dangerous.

While this subject needs an article in its own right, it is something that you need to take into consideration if you are thinking about welcoming a Pitbull type dog into your home. It’s something that you must research thoroughly. For further information regarding local laws, this page lists the states that prohibit the regulation of certain dog breeds by local government.

Pitbull Myths vs. Pitbull Reality

Here we are going to look at the common myths versus what the reality is surrounding Pitbull type dogs.  There are many different misconceptions when it comes to the breed, so we’ve compiled a list of the most commonly discussed myths versus the reality below.  Let’s dispel some of the bad, and take a look at some of the good.

Myth: All Pitbull type dogs are inherently dangerous.

Reality: No, not all Pitbull type dogs are dangerous. The American Temperament Test Society (ATTS) put dog breeds through a series of tests and challenges to test their temperament, and out of 35,686 dogs tested in the latest results (December 2017), the average pass rate was 83.7%.

The American Pitbull Terrier passed at 87.4%. Then, the American Staffordshire Terrier passed at 85.5% and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier passed at 90.9%. The American Bully temperament test results are not available (which does not mean they failed). However, the three Pitbull type dogs passed well above the average score, so this alone supports the case that Pitbull type dogs are not inherently dangerous.

Myth: Pitbull type dogs have ‘lockjaw’, which makes them more dangerous.

Reality: No, they do not have ‘lockjaw’. There is no such thing as a lockjaw. All canine skulls are of the same design and have the same functions, and there is no locking function. Terriers are known for their tenacity and gameness, which is why when they get hold of prey, they keep hold of it. This is the very reason why Terriers were originally selected to be bred with Bulldogs.

Myth: You shouldn’t rescue a Pitbull type dog because they were abused.

Reality: No, not all Pitbulls have been mistreated, and not all mistreated dogs are dangerous. There are simply so many Pitbulls, that they make up the highest proportion of dogs in rescue shelters. Consequently, they are the population that is euthanized the most too.

Equally, not all mistreated dogs are dangerous. Being a Pitbull type dog rescue mom, whose dog was badly beaten and given drugs during the first year of his life, he was later used as the ‘tester dog’ in rescue kennels to profile other dogs and their sociability, simply because he is so friendly. Pitbulls are the same as any other dog, there will always be a few dangerous pups. This entirely comes down to poor socialization as a puppy, but they are few and far between.

Myth: Do Pitbull type dogs really smile?

Reality: While science suggests that dogs can’t smile, if you ask any Pitbull type mom or dad you will get a resounding yes from them! And if you don’t believe them, then check out Lady Shortcake’s Instagram page, who is one of the most smiley dogs, or velvet hippo as her mom calls her, to grace the planet!

Final Thoughts

While all the Pitbull type dogs have an undeniably grisly past, without it they most likely wouldn’t exist. So, pitbull lovers across the world are somewhat thankful for it. Remember that they are all the most commonly found dog breeds in rescue shelters. If you are thinking about welcoming one of these pups into your home, then please consider adoption!

Despite their past, they are some of the sweetest canine souls around. They absolutely love humans, more than anything. All they need is a warm home and a master who will invest time in training and exercising them. So now you are equipped with the knowledge about what a Pitbull type dog is, and who they are, and if you are after a loyal canine who will be forever at your side, then look no further than these adorable sweet dogs!

She lives with myself, my husband, our 8 year old son Russell, two cats and our ferret. She is an extremely loving and a well balanced dog. She is extremely smart and always focused on us. She knows all of the basic tricks plus many more, walks off leash, plays fetch and swims like a Lab. She plays at the dog park and is very submissive. She is not animal aggressive! We love Ceasar Millan and followed all his advice. I have read two of his books and have an extremely well balanced dog to thank him for, along with lots of dedication to training her. We now have a dog that people envy because of our love, dedication,early socialization, pack leader mentality, and knowledge of the breed. We can and do include Nala in everything we do!"

Three Pit Bull Terriers on a lawn playing tug of war with a rubber tire

"Every Sunday afternoon my husband and I take our three Pit Bulls, 4-year-old Daisy, 3-year-old Kahn and 1-year-old Layla to the local baseball field for a day of exercise and "tug-o-war" which they love. We are breeders, of course and may be biased about the breed itself, however, I can fully attest that APBTs are loyal, loving, protective and truly are the best child-oriented dog I've come across. We are currently trying to change the broad misconception that Pit Bulls are naturally born aggressive dogs; it's the owner themselves that makes ANY dog "combative." Our Pits adore our 5-year-old daughter, and Kahn himself is usually used as a pony for outside play or as a floatation device when at the river or lake. While my husband worked out of town for a week at a time throughout the first 6 months of our marriage, I was frequently left alone and knew without a doubt that my dogs would protect me if need be, which they did on one horrible occasion. Someone attempted to break into our home knowing I was alone, and they knew instinctively came to my aide. The would-be intruder never had his/her chance to enter."

"We frequently watch "The Dog Whisperer," have read Caesar Millan's books and have become skilled at training our Pit Bulls and fully understanding their nature and need. I recommend his books constantly to those I know and speak to about the confusion of handling any dog. And of course we love seeing Daddy on the shows and always love his involvement in the rehabilitation process. Junior is obviously one of our favorites with us owning blue Pit Bulls; he’s absolutely gorgeous!"

"I love my Pits. They're my babies. I would do anything for them, just as they do anything for me. The white one is Jasper. He was rescued from a Detroit drug dealer at 2 years of age. He used to weigh 12 lbs. He is the sweetest little boy ever. The brown Pit is Tess. I rescued her from a junkyard in Detroit, along with a few other dogs, but she was the baby. She was horribly ill and I fell totally in love. The black and white Pitbull is Miss Annie. She was bought and paid for. I used to carry her in my purse to the grocery store. Wherever I went, she went. She has the most personality. She is too smart for her own good. The 3 of them together are phenomenal. They open doors and help them self to Christmas dinner, but they are my life. I am a totally different person because of those dogs."

"This is our wonderful American Pit Bull Terrier at 18 months young. Her name is Marley and she is a pleasure to have. She also has a friend Vegas who is a Dachshund + Lab mix and 4 cats that she's around all the time, and yes they all get along just fine. About 16 months ago my 20-year-old son dropped Marley off by our house and asked if we would watch her for a few days. Well, a few days turned out to be 18 months, and for his information he's not getting her back. Marley is a wonderful house pet and she has a large fenced-in yard which she plays in all the time. My wife and I simply love her to no end. She is the most loyal dog I have ever known, and the energy she has is just astounding. I feel so bad when I hear all the negative talk about the Pit Bulls. I for one can say that they are one of the best companions you can find."

"I've been thinking about submitting pictures of Lotus, my wonderful American Pit Bull Terrier for a while. Your website helped me decide that a Pit Bull would be the best dog for my family. After making that decision, we went with Pacific Northwest Pit Bull Rescue to find a dog to adopt. Lotus was two years old and was listed as "good with kids, dogs, cats, and even bunnies!" so we decided to try and see if we were a good fit for each other. We have two cats, Hero and Canvas, and it was very important to me that we adopted a dog that was friendly toward cats. Lotus immediately fit into the family—she thinks that Hero is the boss; they get along well and even sleep next to each other. We have a fenced half-acre, so she has plenty of room to run around and I do take her on long walks, but she is a pretty lazy dog! We joke that she is solar-powered because she likes to sleep so much, especially on gray days. She puts herself to bed at 8 p.m. just about every night."

"Lotus is the most people-friendly dog I have ever met. She loves all people and would like nothing better than to be with people all the time. When we go for walks, little kids will often rush up to her and ask to pet her. She quietly sits and lets them and then we move on. In my research about Pit Bulls I've found that Lotus is probably one of the best examples of a purebred—she's not actually a guard dog, but she is watchful. Her size (55 pounds of solid muscle) intimidates people, but she thinks she's a lapdog. She is always eager to please and thus easy to correct and train."

"Lotus's best friend is a little Shih Tzu; in fact, her favorite breed seems to be Shih Tzus because she gets along with them really well. With Thumper, her best friend, she shares bones and toys and they love to go for walks together. She is well behaved at doggy daycare and loves to play with other dogs. She doesn't bark or act aggressively unless she is on a leash and is reacting to another aggressive dog (she never barks or takes an aggressive posture first). However, she does listen very well and we can distract her from the other aggressive dogs and move on in our walks. I am starting to read some of Cesar Millan's works and am looking into local training groups that use his philosophies so that I can get Lotus to completely ignore other aggressive dogs at all times."

"I love Pit Bulls because of my experience with Lotus and our journey into the land of Pit Bull lovers. My family will now always have Pit Bulls as our preferred breed of dog!"

"When my husband mentioned the idea of buying a Pit Bull, I was terrified. Yet, I decided to do my homework and research the real nature of these dogs instead of going off of what the media tells us. To my surprise I found a lot of helpful and positive information. We also watched weekend marathons of the Dog Whisperer in order to prepare ourselves (this was our first 'inside' dog). We bought Jordan from my uncle who breeds and sells these awesome dogs (only to responsible owners). There has never been a day we regretted making him a family addition. Jordan has also won many of our friends and family members hearts who, like me at one point, did not understand the loving nature of this breed. Jordan loves walks, he loves playing fetch in our backyard, and he loves to lie around and be lazy with us sometimes on our couch or bed."

"He absolutely loves kids and with very little training learned to be gentle and calm around them to avoid knocking them over. Jordan is an indoor dog and with little training learned to respect our home and live by the rules. There are certain rooms (my father-in-law's, for example) that he is not allowed to enter; he does not destroy anything and only jumps on our bed if we ask him to. I will never go back to another breed. My husband and I love your beautiful blue Pit Bull!"

Bull Terrier Dog Breed Information and Personality Traits

Bull terriers are extremely powerful dogs.

They are stocky and muscular and come in two varieties: standard and miniature sizes. The standard version reaches about 22 inches in height and a maximum of about 60 pounds (27 kilograms). The miniature version is a maximum of about 14 inches high and weighs up to about 33 pounds (15 kilograms). The most distinctive physical feature of the Bull Terrier is its head, which is egg-shaped and flat on top. The eyes are small, dark, and close-set. The ears are pointy. The body is broad and the back short and strong. Bull Terriers have a medium-length tail.

The Bull Terrier's coat is short and dense and is white, black, brindle, red, fawn or tri-colored. The dogs are considered average shedders. They live about 10 to 12 years.


Bull terriers are gentle, affectionate and playful with family members. They also are loyal pets that will guard the family. As with any large or tough breed, proper precautions around strangers, children, and other animals is essential.

If not given enough exercise and attention from the owners, Bull terriers can be destructive.

Living With:

Because the breed is powerful and some members may have aggressive tendencies, Bull Terriers must be obedience trained. They must also be carefully socialized from a young age. Socialization requires frequent supervised exposure to other people and pets in the neighborhood. With proper socialization and training, Bull Terriers make great family pets. However, they probably are not a good choice for novice dog owners, nor are they generally recommended for households with other pets or irresponsible children.

Bull terriers must be exercised daily in a fenced-in yard or with walks on leash and should not be permitted to run free, even if trained and socialized. Because of their stocky build, care must be taken not to overfeed as they can easily become obese.


Bull terriers were developed in England during the 19th century. Around 1835, a cross between the old English terrier and the bulldog produced the Bull Terrier. Later crosses to the Spanish Pointer; even later, to the white English terrier and Dalmatian, produced a stylish, tough, white dog. In the mid 1800s, the white version of the breed, known as "white cavaliers," became a favorite pet among gentry. Crosses to the Staffordshire Bull Terrier reintroduced color around 1900.

Today, Bull Terriers are gentler than their ancestors but are still strong, fearless dogs. They are primarily family pets, but are not suitable for many families.

But then Olga removed her hand, and disappointment was already reflected on Nadezhda's face. This was repeated several times, finally, Nadezhda could not stand it. She straightened her dress, got up and walked out of the office with a brisk pace.

And I, having transferred control over the female leg to Andrei, began to drive my grandmother into an orgasm, caressing her clitoris with my tongue. Elena Semyonovna, as if immediately, stopped resisting and the guys got the opportunity to caress her legs, stomach and even breasts.

All this went on for a long time, but our perseverance and patience were rewarded. The woman finally began to convulse from an all-consuming orgasm.
