Other information:

The American Pit Bull Terrier also known as the American Staffordshire Terrier is a cross between a Bull dog and a Terrier. This has resulted in a medium sized but physically powerful dog that has the strength of a Bulldog and the tenacity of a Terrier. The American versions are slightly bigger than their English counterparts and have been given the “American” tag to their name to differentiate them. They are classified as different breeds in most Kennel Clubs.

At Poochieheaven we have American Pit Bull Terrier Beds and American Pit Bull Terrier Collars.
