Here you go:
He definitely looks like some of "pit bull" mix.

I understand that, I guess, but you shouldn't have to lie. I'd be proud to say my dog is a APBT if the dog is a good ambassador of the breed.
And yes, I grew up with Rottweilers and I know what it's like to have people cross the street to avoid your dogs, call them monsters, be told my dog would kill me one day, etc.
zeekee, those are behavior problems, not pit bull problems. Work on him with that.
