The best way to judge a dogs linage is by studing its pedigree,
If a dog has nothing but gamebred dogs in its ped,its a pure bred apbt
,or if it has alot of game dogs and a few correct am staffs its pretty much pure also,but that could be debated also.
When you get to the gotti/whopper bred dogs,o.g gray line[what ever],the pedigrees start to get real hazy,missing dogs,dogs that look to be half mastiff,or full mastiff,bulldog looking dogs,then you know something dis/honest is happening.If you aquire a pit bull that looks like a mastiff and acts like a bulldog,theres a great chance thats what it is,no matter what your papers say......................
