I bought this puppy from a man on Craigslist last month. According to the person this puppy is a pure breed American Bulldog but all my friends think he's a Pitbull. I've researched a bunch of pictures online of puppies his age and he look like he could be either or! Can someone go into my album and tell me what you think he is?

Although his ears are larger than most American Bulldogs I would say Yes. You have a beautiful purebred pup. ABs are classified as a pitbull type dog so technically your friends are half right. I have an Alapaha BlueBlood Bulldog and American Bulldog/Boxer. Most people tell me I have pitbulls too! Enjoy him.
