  • Pit Bull isn’t an actual breed. It is a general term used to describe large and stocky dogs with a big head.
  • Pit Bulls cannot lock their jaws. They actually have less biting power than Dobermans, Rottweilers & German Shepherds.
  • The American Temperament Test Society conducted tests that report Pit Bulls have a passing rate of 84.5% or better compared to the 77% average passing rate of the general dog population.
