I've heard people say that only an American Pit Bull Terrier can be called a "Pit Bull". I disagree, I think you can call APBT/AST/SBT "Pit Bulls". I think just the word Pit Bull is a general term for the 3 similar but different breeds. If someone asks you want kind of dog you have, and you reply "I have an American Staffordshire Terrier" then you're being breed specific. If you answer "I have a Pit Bull" that could mean you have one of the 3 breeds. Who agrees with me, and who thinks i'm a moron?
