You can't tell the difference between an APBT and SBT most of the time? Or a BT and an APBT or SBT or AST? Or between a Boston and the others?

What's wrong with determining what the cross might be (best guess) and go from there? What harm would that do?

True, but are we doing ourselves any favors by demanding that our dogs have special favors? ("There are no Pit Bulls in rescue"). By firmly demanding that the dog that looks pretty much like your dogs, Coach, is NOT a Pit Bull? (How stupid does that make us look? Like we don't know squat about dogs is what it makes us look like!)

Again, people are people. They want a certain look. They want a certain behavior. Rescues HAVE to limit themselves (good ones anyway). I see nothing wrong with discriminating and becoming a rescue well-known for good representatives of a specific breed.
