The wedge-shaped head is medium in length with a broad, flat skull and a wide, deep muzzle. The lower jaw is well developed and strong. The nose is large and can be any color. The eyes can be any color except blue and are set low. The ears are small to medium in size, set high on the head and can be natural or cropped. This breed has muscular hindquarters and a deep chest.

They should not be more than 80% white. This breed comes in all colors and color patterns. They combine strength and athleticism with grace and agility. They are usually smaller than their counterparts, the American Staffordshire Terrier.

Temperament The American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) is strong, confident and has a zest for life. They are eager to please and brimming over with enthusiasm. This breed makes an excellent family companion and has always been well known for their love of children. Most in this breed exhibit some level of dog aggression and because of its powerful physique, the APBT requires an owner who will carefully socialize and obedience train the dog. This breed's natural agility makes it a very capable canine climber so good fencing is a must. The APBT is not the best choice for a guard dog since they are extremely friendly, even with strangers. Aggressive behavior towards humans is uncharacteristic of the breed. This canine does very well in performance events because of its high level of intelligence and its willingness to work.

Origin American Pit Bull Terriers were originally working dogs who drove cattle and guarded their masters' property. At one time, this breed was used in the grueling sport of bull baiting. This sport was outlawed in England in 1835. Originally bred from a variety of bulldogs and terriers, American breeders increased his weight and gave him a more powerful head. The Pit Bull was used to represent the US in WWI artwork; popular companies like RCA and the Buster Brown Shoe Company used the breed as their mascots. A Pit Bull name Petie starred in the popular children's television series, Our Gang. At one time, the Pit Bull was a much loved and trustworthy companion. People who chose to train these dogs to fight are chiefly responsible for the banning of this breed that has been sweeping the US. The AKC will only register this breed as American Staffordshire Terriers. The UKC and the American Dog Breeders Association allow registrations with the name American Pit Bull Terrier.
