Duchess is an APBT? What do you think?

My new boyfriend has a pit bull and her name is Duchess. She is extremely friendly with people albeit she she is very DA. I've been reading that peds don't matter and/or can be faked.

She is only 40ish pounds at 15 months, so she's the smallest "pit" I've ever seen. He has a ped that goes back 7gen but I'm still not sure she is pure bred pit. Is there a way to tell other than DNA?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Post the ped, that's the only way to know. 40 pounds is not small for an actual APBT though, females are usually 30-50, males a bit larger so I would say your idea of an APBT may be off.

Post up the pedigree and we can take a look at the origins of your dog. Yes papers can be hung but, if it came from a reputable breeder you shouldn't need to worry about that. The pedigree is the only way to know anything about your dog. As stated above 40 lbs is average for a female. I have one at ~35 lbs and one around 45lbs. DNA test won't tell you anything so don't waste your money on one.

If that's the smallest you've seen, you haven't been seeing APBTs. Youre probably seeing "bullies" that are usually 55-85 lb dogs.

Lol thanks for the info you guys. I was just curious because my friends' pits are 80 and 100 pounds. I am definitely learning the difference between a pet and a working dog ;-)

Those are more likely than not,American Bullies or random mutts with Pit Bull in the mix or characteristics thereof.The largest Pit Bulls are typically well under 80 and definitely nowhere near 100 pounds.
