American Pit Bull Terriers are medium sized, solidly-built, short-haired dog whose early ancestors came from the British Isles. A Pit Bull´s lifespan is 8-15 years. Pit Bulls are 1 of the smartest dogs in the world. Most people think that they aren´t very smart. Instead they are stubborn. They could be strong willed, obedient, loyal, friendly, clownish, courageous, and affectionate. Pit Bulls can be black, red, grey, fawn, brindle, blue, brown, and tan. They are RARELY white. Pit Bulls are dogs that were American Bulldogs bred with Terriers.

Michael Vick has had to go to prison for 23 months. He had to go to prison because he had over 20 Pit Bulls chained up in kennels in his back yard and using them for fighting. All of the Pit Bulls were rescued from his back yard were adopted and not used for fighting. Personally I believe that the American Pit Bull Terrier is more than stubborn. They are LOVABLE and are not bad, so people should stop giving them a ¨BAD RAP¨.
