Pete The Pup

Perhaps the best known American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier in history, "Pete the Pup" of "Our Gang" comedies fame. He was registered with the United Kennel Club as Lucenay's Peter, whelped 09/06/1929, bred by A. A. Keller in California. He was among the first UKC American Pit Bull Terriers to be registered with the American Kennel Club as a Staffordshire Terrier in 1936. His AKC registered name was simply "Pete." The prefix American was added to the breed name by the AKC around 1972, to distinguish it from their newly recognized Staffodshire Bull Terrier.
