WORLD MARCH 1936
Please notice that in March, 1936 the American
pit bull was being called "Yankee terrier", "American
bullterrier" and "American pit bull terrier". Yet to
come, the same year, was "Staffordshire terrier" when the
AKC chose to recognize the breed and chose that name. Later still they
changed that name to "American Staffordshire terrier". Add
to that serious fancier then and now call the dog "pit bull"
and "bulldog" and you can see why many people are confused
over the breed's name!
