"Pit Bull" is a generic term used to describe any dog with a big head and a muscular build. There is not one breed that is called a Pit Bull and not a single kennel club in the world that recognizes "pit bull" as a breed. Most people consider American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and American Pit Bull Terriers as having "pit bull characteristics" and these characteristics are what the breed specific laws apply to. Pit Bull bans are written so that they include any dog that is of "Pit Bull type" or a "Pit Bull mix". Since the dog is not of a particular breed, or breed mix, this group would include whatever an animal control officer, Shelter worker, dog trainer, politician, neighbor, police officer, or newspaper says it is. It is apparent in the dogs we have rescued that what a "pit bull" or "pit bull mix" looks like is very vague and varies from person to person!
Many of our adopted dogs from 2012 and 2013 were dogs from the Jefferson City Animal Shelter. ARFF MO teamed up with the shelter in 2011 to help save as many pitties as possible. We have been proud to give many dogs from the shelter their second chances.
