We posted 10 pictures of dogs to see if you could correctly identify the American Pit Bull Terrier.

Each picture is of a pure-bred dog — there are no mixes or rescue dogs of unknown background whose breed could be debated.

The voting is closed, but check the results to see if you were correct.  Most people were not – of the 1,460 votes cast, only 38 were for the American Pit Bull Terrier.

The point of the poll was to show there are many dogs mistaken for pit bulls when they are actually a different breed. For example, a dog with cropped ears, a stocky dog, or one with an eye patch may be mistaken for a pit bull when it is not.  All of the dog pictures are from the Missouri Pit Bull Rescue website.
