    Quite often dogs that attack are identified as pit bulls when they are not. It seems that that any dog of medium build with short hair is thought to be a pit bull. There are 20 breeds that are commonly incorrectly identified as pit bulls. Its sad that these folks got attacked but quit assuming every attack was probably a pit bull! Educate yourselves!!
