Really nice looking pup! Where did you get him? And for your question, there isnt much to do but to train him well and keep him out of truble areas (dog park/public places) if your not 100% sure of your dogs behavior.

Nothing you can do, even having your pup registered at the vet as something is not enough "evidence" that your dog isn't a pitbull. Being your dog is a mix breed there is no papers you could have been given, registration papers are only for registered purebred dogs.
Best bet is keeping the attention off of you and your dog, I see Dogo and thats about all in your puppy, but media see's pitbull as you can hear here.

Here in Ontario, it doesn't HAVE to be a pitbull, it just has to resemble one to be seized by animal control.

There is a bill that has passed it's second reading, but needs McGuinty's permission to come back for a third, please contact your MPP and tell him you want him to support this bill



Below are the dogs targeted by the Dog Owner’s Liability Act (DOLA);
(a) a pit bull terrier,
(b) a Staffordshire Bull Terrier,
(c) an American Staffordshire Terrier,
(d) an American Pit Bull Terrier,
(e) a dog that has an appearance and physical characteristics that are substantially similar to those dogs referred to in any of clauses (a) to (d); (“pit-bull”)

I have moved out many dogs from Ontario that were tagged 'Pitbulls' which clearly were not.
Under BSL any dog can be a victim.

Unfortunately your dog does resemble this 'type' of dog regardless of the breed within.

All you can do is be out of sight and out of mind with him.
