The only AKC papers you could get would be an ILP (indefinite listing privilege) number and that is available only for dogs that are spayed or neutered and can pass as a purebred of a type AKC registers.
You can read about the ILP here
AKC does not register pitbulls though they do register the American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
If you wish to compete in AKC obedience or agility or rally type events you may be able to get an ILP number for your dog.
Hope this helps you!
