COM 150 WEEK 6 DAY7 BERNAL The Real American Pit Bull Terrier Body Paragraphs. What is the first thought that comes to mind when you hear someone say “I have a Pit bull”?

I would like to address some very common misconceptions that center on this breed of dog. I will discuss the history; give a proper description of the breed, temperament, and misconceptions.

It is believed that this breed is a mix between the Bulldog and the now extinct English White Terrier. This dog was considered to have originated in England during the late 18 th early 19 th century. They were bred when bull baiting was a very popular and alive. This dog was also said to be bred to bring down unruly cattle and help hunt game. Throughout this time period, all dogs that participated in baiting were called “bulldogs”, this phrase also applied to the Mastiff and American Bulldog. Bull baiting was finally outlawed in 1835.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
