These dogs were considered a race as such in the way that today are considered mediantes their standards; at that time they were considered a generic type of bulldog. There were no pedigree records or mixtures, they are reproduced based on their usefulness for work. fighter returning home decided to resurrect this breed. Eventually reproduced race leading to the old working dog that was registered as American Pit Bulldog
