Yes that is correct but also can have something to do with an elongated pallet. It is not common in a typical APBT
unless it is genetic but more common in bully type dogs because of the massive head they are breeding for. Your vet I am sure lumps the two together but I have a few apbt
who snort but it is because they have an elongated pallet. Normally it does not bother the dog at all but my boston terrier for example has no nose and it can be a problem with him or dogs with extreme heads.
On your basic apbt
, bully, or pit bull type dog they are nothing to worry about.
