    I think this is an american picture. They don't have the markers for APBT's to actually test for them do they? I would only do Harley & Bella to see what they are apparently made of... haha when I have that much money to waste!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    LOL it's a gimmick, on the same vein as the human genome ancestry project, now that is a pearler.

    Have a look at what the Americans call a pit these days and they look nothing like the original dog, there bred for looks now and not for performance like they use to. There more like a bull dog then a pit I think.

    Not true, many breeders still breed for a gamebred APBT in the States, many still breed for a functional dog and almost everyone in the States is well aware that anything that comes away from the original athletic, functional dog is not in fact a real APBT.
    There are certainly dogs being bred in America that fall under the Pitbull types that are larger either closer to British Bulldog, Staffy Mix, those are actually a separate type though Ambullies. Different again. It is more confusing in the States then it is here.
    They have APBT, Staffy, Amstaff, American Bulldog, Ambullies that all fall under the Pitbull type heading.

    Re: the picture. I made a comment on one of the pages about it. All of the DNA testing places pretty much admit that their tests are a gimmick without actually saying it in those words. None of them provide the same answers when tests from the same dogs are sent in, so if you test the same dog and send it to the 3 different companies, you will get 3 different answers, sometimes without even 1 breed showing up the same. Its nuts.
