The examples and perspective in this article deal primarily with USA and do not represent a worldwide view of the subject. Please improve this article and discuss the issue on the talk page. (May 2013) Pit Bull American Pit Bull Terrier Country of origin England Scotland Ireland United States Traits Classification and standards Dog (Canis lupus familiaris) The term Pit Bull is often used as a generic term used to describe dogs with similar physical characteristics. A "Pit Bull" is one of several breeds including the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Bully, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Presa Canario, Cane Corso, or any mix thereof. Any dog that is mixed with a "Bull breed" may also be called a "Pit Bull" including those that are descended from the English Bulldog, French Bulldog, and Boston Terrier. The genetic similarity of Bull breed dogs may make it difficult for experts to visually identify them, and while mixed breed dogs are often labeled a "pit bull" if they have certain physical characteristics such as a square shaped head or bulky body type, visual identification of mixed breed dogs is not recommended by the scholarly community. ^ a b "Inaccuracy of Breed Labels Assigned to Dogs of Unknown Origin".  ^ "Breed Discriminatory Legislation: How DNA Will Remedy the Unfairness".  ^ "Pit bull Identification in Animal Shelters".  ^ "Irrationality Unleashed: The Pitfalls of Breed-Specific Legislation".
