Edited to clarify that it's not the breeders who called the pup "bluenose", it was me ))) They said it was a blue puppy (as in coat), not a bluenose puppy.
TL;DR Should a blue puppy have a blue skin? And is a coat of blue puppies brown with a grey gloss or should it actually be dark grey (diluted black) with blue gloss?
I want to buy a blue Staffordshire terrier puppy (at a much higher price because of the color) that's, as far as I understand, supposed to have dark grey/blueish coat color. Both parents have documents, participate in the shows and are multi champions.
The puppy has all the documents, obviously, and the owner says the docs indicate it as "blue" and she did look that way based on pictures. But when I came to see her, her coat actually is dark brown and her mom looks seal too (the pictures of both were grey/blueish color). The mom is exactly this color with hazel eyes: http://mrpitbull.com/Pitbull-Picture...ed-Pitbull.JPG
The problem is that, while the coat of the puppy definitely looked dark brown, the skin was blue because they used some kind of shampoo "for blue coated dogs" to make it look more blue I guess. Her eyes are light grey.
She looks really really cute, but I think the owners are trying to double the price based on a lie that she is a blue puppy.
