The Blue Nose Pitbull is relatively new dog. Like anything, when the public starts to demand more out of it, the breeders start breeding more. However, the breed is still relatively rare. People are trying to breed them together and get more and different varieties. Such as the Blue Red Nose Pitbull, the Red and Blue Nose Pitbull, the blue nose brindle pitbull, as well as many other iterations. Some people are turned off by the breed and others love it. Either way, we all pretty much know that it is the person that makes the dog behave a certain way far more than it is the dog - in most cases. They don’t have to be aggressive and can be great companions, as long as they are handled properly. Continue reading below to see pictures, videos, and learn more about the beautiful Blue Nose Pitbull. We will discuss breeders, rescue, facts, price, what is, lifespan, and colors.
While we really recommend that you acquire all animals through a Blue Nose Pitbull rescue, we understand that some people might go through a Blue Nose Pitbull breeder to get their Blue Nose Pitbull puppy or baby, that is if they have any Blue Nose Pitbull puppies for sale. They aren’t going to be cheap and shouldn’t be, they also shouldn’t be free, although that is ideal. You should be looking for a companion and not a bargain.

Why the Blue Nose?
This is probably the most logical question to ask. What really makes them a Blue Nose Pitbull is a rare blue-gray hue to the skin, eyes, nose, and toenails. As I mentioned above, there are even Red Nose Pitbulls, whose skin, eyes, nose, and toenails have an amber tone. This all derives from dominant and recessive genes that shine through. The blue or red coloring occurs when two parents with recessive coat-color genes breed, this is of course done by the breeder. Pitbulls with these recessive genes are rare, and it is even rarer for two to cross the same doggie path!
So, pitbulls in general have kind of a complex background and no one's entirely sure what to do with it. There are three major breeds of pits:
American Pitbull Terrier
American Staffordshire Terrier
Staffordshire Bull Terrier
They are all working dogs that hail from the same ancestors. They are known to come from the terrier group and were originally bred for baiting bulls. Their stocky, low profile makes them stand out as dogs that would be good for aggressive hunting. The Blue Nose Pitbull is a type of American Pit Bull Terrier. This goes for both male and female and full grown Blue Nose Pitbulls.
Breeding specific dogs like this has become common in the last twenty years or so, always trying to manipulate their appearance to get a blue nose fawn, or a red nose blue nose, grey blue nose. It doesn’t matter the iteration, but we will take a closer look below at the various traits, history, and background. If you are looking at breeders for new, designer dogs please beware of Puppy Mills. These are places that mass produce puppies, specifically for profit and don’t care at all about the dogs. Please sign our petition to stop puppy mills.
We pretty much touched on this above, but the Pit bulls were created by breeding bulldogs and terriers together to produce a dog that combined the gameness and agility of the terrier with the strength of the bulldog. In the United Kingdom, these dogs were used in blood sports such as bull-baiting and bear-baiting. Since that time, different iterations have been bred, such as a blue nose or a red nose. It is all just breeding from that point. An example of this is getting the red nose blue nose pitbull mix. Some of them have cropped ears and some uncropped ears, and some are cut.

Blue Nose Pitbull Temperament
Like all dogs, you have to look to the parents to get a good read on how they will likely behave. You want to avoid all dogs that show aggression, that were bred in some weird fighting circle or don’t seem to be friendly. Why put yourself in a bad situation. If properly socialised, they should get along well with other animals. They are somewhat capable of independence, or alone time when the house is noisy or full. Early socialization helps take care of any bad habits that could develop. She responds well to positive reinforcement, like all dogs. She should be rather affectionate and enjoy spending lots of time with you. Don’t plan on leaving her alone for long periods as he won’t do well alone. She wants to be with the “pack.”
All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems as all breeds are susceptible to some things more than others. However, the one positive thing about getting a puppy is that you can avoid this as much as possible. A breeder should absolutely offer a health guarantee on puppies. If they won’t do this, then look no more and don’t consider that breeder at all. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition.
The Blue Nose Pitbull might be prone to Mange, Alopecia, Immune disorders, Neurological disorders, Allergies, Heart diseases, Cataracts
What are the grooming requirements?
The one really good thing about this breed is that they really don’t shed that much. They are pretty easy keepers in this department. Give them baths as needed, but not so much that you dry out their skin.
What are the exercise requirements?
This is a higher energy dog and is not good for someone that is a couch potato. They are rather mellow but want to be out doing things. The best way to tame their aggression and to tame their energy is by simply burning it off of them. A tired dog is a good dog. Never tie your dog up outside - that is inhumane and not fair to him.
What are the training requirements?
This is an intelligent dog that will be easier to train, however, it might be extremely stubborn. It is also going to want to chase things like crazy. All dogs respond best to positive reinforcement. So make sure to praise her when she does well. She is an intelligent dog who loves to please, and loves a physical challenge. The more exercise she gets the easier she will be to train. Proper socialization is imperative to all dogs and puppies. Make sure to take her to the park and doggy day care to get her around as many people and dogs as possible.
A lot of times diet is done on a per-dog basis. Each one is unique and has different dietary requirements. Most dogs in the U.S. are overweight. A mix like this one that is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia should really be on fish oil and glucosamine and chondroitin supplements as soon as possible.
Overfeeding any dog is not a good idea as that can really exacerbate health problems such as elbow and hip dysplasia.
I good diet to look into is Raw Food Diet. A raw food diet will be especially good for the Wolf background.
