How do you tell if a dog is a pit bull dog?

The ONLY way to be certain would be to have a record of their lineage. APBT's have pretty generic looks, and many other breeds and mutts can be easily mistaken for APBT's, so you can not go off their appearance alone.

Even the blood tests are known to be highly inaccurate, especially if the dog is a mix of more then two breeds, so not even blood tests can be used to know if the dog is an APBT.
