How to Tell if It's a Pitbull Breed

  • Look at the size and ratios of the dog. Pitt bulls are two and one-half feet tall at the shoulder or shorter.
  • Look at the dog's coat. The color is irrelevant.
  • Examine the dog's head and neck. A pit bull's head is extremely wide from ear to ear, across the brow and from cheek to cheek.
