Like pitbull4me said, "pitbull" is not actually a breed. It's a term that's typically used to group 3 breeds of dog: American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
I have an APBT and when I take him out I am frequently asked "What kind of pitbull is that?" It's almost always an uneducated idiot that asks this question and every time it makes me want to claw my eyes out. I always reply that he is an American Pit Bull Terrier and then they say something idiotic like "Ya, but what KIND of pit bull?" His color is brindle but that does not make him a brindle pit bull. That has nothing to do with his breed. If you ever see a "breeder" trying to sell their "blue nosed pits"... this person is a good example of a backyard breeder and idiot. Do not ever buy from people like that.
Can you tell you hit my sensitive spot with this question? lol
