for the pitbull. I thought it was only 2. The American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Terrier. I've also heard of American Pitbull Terrier...

When I hear all this, I get confused. I don't know what to believe...

And is the Am Staff the tall one and the Staff the short one...?

pit bull is a generic term, all the above are related breeds with the same physical characteristics - short, stocky, strong. Many pit bulls are basically mutts with some staffy in them.

Knowing the breed of the dog - i.e. can you prove your dog is an AmStaff? - can prevent your dog from being subject to breed specific legislation that bans pit bulls. Many staffs are basically pit bulls with a breed attached for that very reason.

I believe AmStaffs are bigger/taller than regular Staffys.

Wiki has a good page with pics of all three "breeds": Pit Bull - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
