Blue Nose Pitbull: Dangerous or Great Pet Potential?

What is a Blue Nose Pitbull?

The Blue Nose Pittie isn’t its own breed at all – it’s the blue-coated version of the American Pitbull Terrier, a popular yet controversial dog breed in some parts of the world. Sometimes, Blue Nose Pitbull breed is the American Staffordshire Terrier or a mix of the Pitbull and Staffordshire breeds.

Why the blue nose?

The Blue Nose Pittie has a deep blue-grey nose and a coat that can be bluish or any other number of other cool-toned colors.

The Blue Nose Pitbull Terriers are incredibly rare because their unique coloring comes from recessive genes, which express themselves much less often than their dominant counterparts. To see a Blue Pit in action means that both parents possessed and passed on the recessive gene to the pup.

The coloring itself is a diluted black pigment, eumelanin, which also causes blue eyes and noses. When we call the coat “blue,” it more accurately could be considered a cool, light grey that appears bluish. All types of Pitbulls, but especially the American Pitbull Terriers, have a very long history, dating back to hunting dogs in England, commonly used in bear and bull-baiting, before it became illegal.

In America, Pitbull breeders made these dogs fit for guarding and hunting vermin on the farm to protect their owner’s land.
