Is my dog a pitbull/ bull terrier?
Pitbull is not a defined breed. 4 most widely-known pitbull-type breeds - American pitbull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, or American bully. Your dog looks like an American pitbull terrier, but dogs without a pitbull-type background are frequently mis-identified as pitbull-types, and vice versa, even by experts. This is why visual indicators simply arent very reliable. Therefore DNA testing will give you the most definitive answer. You can purchase a dog DNA test online, swab the inside of the dog's cheek, and send the sample back to the company.

I got my dog when he was 8 weeks old from a lady who said that he was pure Boxer. She showed me the mom and dad, who definately looked pure Boxer to me, but I'm thinking my dog has a lot of Pit in him.
My parent's had a pure boxer and it looks just like your dog. I think that dog is Boxer for sure and not Pitt at all. I don't see any Pitt in that dog.
The body may be Pitbull. You could have a DNA test done if you want to be certain.
