American Pit Bull Terrier ( APBT ) Breed Profile
The American Pit Bull Terrier ( APBT ) is a medium sized breed of dog 30-60 lbs. It has short hair which is relatively smooth to the touch. Pit Bulls come in all colors and patterns.
The Pit Bull breed has been developed over hundreds of years to be a worker and is well suited to most any task requiring strength, agility, and intelligence. A well developed American Pit Bull Terrier ( APBT ) should be muscular in build with well pronounced chest and legs. A Pit Bull's head is often described as brick-like but is actually more in the shape of a wedge. The muzzle of the Pit may vary in length but a Pit with a well developed head will have a wide muzzle at maturity ending at a muscular jaw.The tail is often described to resemble a lever and ends in a tip. Although some Pits may have their tail cropped this is not recommended as it affects their balance. A Pit Bulls tail is never in the shape of a corkscrew.
The ears of Pit Bulls are set rather high on the head and may be cropped or un-cropped based on preference. When a Pit shows interest or expresses joy in something its ears will often move toward each other revealing wrinkles on the forehead.
Pit Bull's eyes are round or oval in shape and come in all colors including blue which is caused by the Merle gene. Merle genetics may also reveal itself in blotches on the coat and is typically manifested this way in reds and blues.
The nose of a Pit Bull can be any natural color but in most cases are black, red, blue, or speckled.
A well mannered and properly socialized Pit Bull will exhibit confidence in most every situation. When a task brings itself to light the Pit Bull is typically inquisitive and exhibits a can do and don't give up attitude. The Pit Bulls intelligence is unsurpassed and can get it into trouble sometimes once it figures out it is a natural escape artist and can climb trees almost as good as a cat. Because of this ability it is of the utmost importance to keep objects and trees away from any fences that are intended to confine them. Pit Bulls have a natural tendency to want to please their owners and strive for human attention. Pit Bulls make excellent family pets but should be watched around children as their exuberance, size, strength, and weight may be overpowering.
Pit Bulls can be trained for most any occasion ranging from service and therapy work, guarding, hunting, rescue, and the activity it loves best; couch or bed warming. Although all Pit Bulls need physical activity to help release their large stores of youthful energy, head pats and belly rubs are always a welcomed second.
A well developed and socialized Pit Bull is like a chivalrous knight clad in an armor of muscle covered with a well polished glossy covering of skin. Like the great knights of old, the American Pit Bull Terrier ( APBT ) will show unfaltering courage, dedication, will be honorable in action and have a heart to do what is right by his king or queen, you.
Of course sometimes they will just insist on being the joker.
