The American Staffordshire Terrier looks a lot more like an American Pit Bull Terrier than the Staffordshire Bull Terrier does, but I wanna know what is the difference between these two breeds? Are they BOTH considered “pit bulls”? Please be specific and don’t give me foolish answers. Thanks :)

Neither of these dogs are Pit bulls- although somewhere along the line I am sure that people will refer to both breeds as a Pit Bull- its all ignorance.
Am Staffs tend to have more of a Pitty look- but they are a completely seperate breed developed from the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Americans tend to like things big- so they developed a larger, more leggy version of the Staffy.
