Great question! Pit bull is a general term and not an actual breed. American Staffordshire Terrier is one of the breeds that is sometimes referred to as a pit bull. Read more here, http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/virtual-pet-behaviorist/dog-behavior/truth-about-pit-bulls. This is one of the main reasons why it never makes sense to enforce BSL (breed specific legislation) and make decisions about "all pit bulls." It is impossible to actually identify which dogs would belong in this group. In addition, so many dogs are easily mistaken for being a pit bull type when they are not.

If you watch the video and then click on the link for Animal Wellness Foundation to view Gideon's adoption profile, you will see that organization identifies him as an American Staffordshire Terrier. http://www.adoptapet.com/pet/10490072-marina-del-rey-california-american-staffordshire-terrier
