Originating during the 19th century, the American Pit Bull Terrier was noted for having the gameness of a Terrier and the athletic abilities and strength of a Bulldog. This breeds versatile talents made them a favorite of farmers and ranchers for such uses as protection, livestock driving, family companions, and as catch dogs for hogs and semi-wild cattle.

Activity
This breed requires a high degree of exercise to keep them happy. They enjoy securely leashed walks, hiking, and mountain-biking.
