Question white pitbulls

I am curious if anyone here can tell me how common deafness is amongst solid white pits, I havent really come across a definitive answer from research, some people say every solid white will be deaf(which is obviously false), some say if they do not have any type of spots or pigment in the inner ear they will be deaf, while some people say that the majority of all whites are not deaf...etc, I know that many deaf pits are white, but does that mean most whites are deaf?

my pup Madison is all white except for a few little brown spots on her ears and on top of her nose there are some brown spots. she can hear clear as a bell, and smarter than ever. she is pure white other than that, her coat and skin. here are a few pics. she is 9 months old today

I don't know how true the deafness thing is buy Rudy tries to act like it sometimes. She has selective hearing and only pays attention to you when she feels like it.

Not all solid white pits are deaf, but it is a proven fact that APBTs that are more than 80% white are more at risk for deafness than other other colors.

hmmm..thanks for the replies, has anyone here heard that a white pitbull with light eyes(blue, green) are more at risk, or is that just heresay? And what about inner ear markings? I am curious because a friend of mine is about to have an allwhite litter (most likely all white) and I am trying to determine what signs I should look for when choosing a pup. Both the mom and dad have good hearing and health but I am not sure about further back in the bloodline.

true blooded pits dont have blue or green eyes as far as i know . I would say any pits is at risk if not bred right . BYBs put them at risk every day with line breeding and just poor grounds . you have to look at the hole pic before you will know if a dog is at risk of something .

I don't know how much the health of the dogs ancestors would have to do with it. From what I have heard, deafness is a genetic defect linked to the gene that produces white. If this is true, than I'm sure the more you breed dogs with a lack of pigment, the more chance you will have of the defect showing up. Dalmations have a lot of trouble in this department so I would imagine the same would be true for other breeds.

I don't remember the reason. Something to do with the pigmentation. But a friend has an all white Boxer and its deaf. She said as far as she knew all white Boxers were deaf. My son's blue APBT was born with the brightest blue eyes I've seen. At around 6 months old they started turning to a yellowish color that they are now at two yrs old.

That's really interesting. I knew a lot of dalmations had hearing problems but i never knew why. You learn somethin new everyday!

just curious, but how does your friend know it's going to be an all white litter?? you can breed the same two dogs at different times and the litters not come out the same.
alot of pitbull puppies are born with dark blue eyes , but they change colors after a few months. I have always been told blue eyes (in a grown dog) makes them more at risk to be blind... (not neccesarily meaning they will be though).

I have an all white pitbull except for a few brown spots on her ears but she isnt deaf shes just like Natdidier's dog, she pretends shes deaf sometimes and wont listen to a word you say! lol

I was looking at white pitbulls and I found one that was deaf and the other was born without eyes. So I guess it all really depends. But from what I've seen online MOST white dogs of any kind are more at risk of being deaf.

I guess I just assumed most of the pups would be white since both the mom and pop are almost entirely so, hope that youre right and there is a bit of color diversity, and in response to that post a few back; when i said i wasnt sure about further back in the bloodline I just meant i personally have not checked the pedigree yet, i wouldnt go so far as to refer to the breeder as a "back yard breeder", lol, all the pups are registered and such.

It would be nice to see some kind of scientific evidence. If it were so I wouldnt be suprised if they could still read lips due to how smart they are!
