How did the pitbull get its name?

2 Answers

Originally named bull terriers, The name "pit Bull" comes from the illegal act of fighting the dogs against each other in an arena called a "pit". This breed is actually smart, gentile and was bred as a companion animal. They are not inherently aggressive, and are violent only if raised that way.
