I used to have a Ridgeback, they look nothing like a Pit. Heck most of those dogs don't. A couple have similar features though, but that's it.

I know right. It would be like mistaking a husky for a pit bull. I love both breeds but they look nothing alike.

I have Boston Terriers and I'm always asked if they are "baby pit bulls."  I think it's funny.

How would anyone mistake a Vizsla for a pit? They look like brown Wiemaraners.

Ive seen a lot of those dogs get mistaken for pitbulls...especially the American Bulldog and American Staffordshire terrier.

Or people that have those and say they are pitbulls.

Rottweilers though? Nothing looks like a Rottie except a Rottie. :P

People confuse all the breeds when they don't know them well. I have two Great Danes with natural ears, and people think they are "some kind of hound dog", lol.

LOL. My BT was given to me after I explained to someone that the history of the 2 breeds are the same and that they were in fact holding a Pit Bull in miniature. The lady was appalled and gave me my Abby.  She sure acts like a little Pit Bull.
