    I dont know if I've done this topic but in England before the breed was called Staffordshire bull terrier it was called fighting terrier or pit terrier .then around 1800s they started going to america to become the apbt what I'm saying is if nothing was added to the apbt and nothing to the Staffordshire bull terrier there genetically the same dog but look different what's peoples opinions

    I think the common name in Britain was Pit bull terrier ... and yes they ware the same breed , the conformation of the modern kc SBT has changed from what they originally looked like ,,, here is a clip from Joe Dunn's book on the SBT ,,,

    The SBT, APBT and Canis lupus are genetically the same animal, technically. Selective breeding for specific traits is the difference.

    I'll guess there are modern SBT lines which consistently produce for durability and performance, gameness even - just as there are pure APBT lines bred for generations for nothing more than conformation points.

    They are basically the same dog but after years and years of selective breeding with a wider gene pool they have been refined.
