What is considered a pit bull in the eyes of Colleen Lynn, founder of Dogsbite.org?
Anything with fur, teeth and larger than a poodle!
Okay, not true ( it kind of is… But we’ll touch on that in a later post..)- but let’s introduce you to the “new” breed that will be labeled a pit bull!
Let’s get to know the Boerboel (South African Mastiff) from South Africa.
“Despite the Boerboel’s long breeding history, there is great uncertainty as to how many and which breeds were used to create it. It is generally believed that the breed was created from interbreeding native African canine species with breeds brought into South Africa from Dutch, French, and British settlers. 2010, the Boerboel was banned in Denmark for being a fighting dog.”
