Buying bluenose amstaff, but I think she is dark brown

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.

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?

Welcome to the forum.
Glad you asked before you bought. This "breeder" doesn't sound knowledgeable or honest. The most obvious clue is that the term "bluenose" is not a bloodline. It is a term commonly used by back yard breeders to try and make the puppy sound like an exotic breed in order to charge more money.

The thing about "pro" breeders here is that they are all the same and there are very few of them (maybe 10) in the whole country.

I don't live in the US and we don't have that many pit bulls here so my choice is very very limited. Most pits here have mixed color coats and mostly a mix of fawn/red/bronze/white/black.

I guess my question is when I buy a puppy that has documents proving it's bluenose, can the coat be brownish and should the skin be blue lol? Because it looks like the breeders call "blue" anything that has a tint of grey in the coat o_O and charge double just for that.

These are the pictures of the pup and parents.

But again, in real life mom's coat is very dark brown, not grey at all, not the slightest. I have never seen dad, but based on pics, I think he's brownish too. And the pup's coat seems brown too, but it's just 8 weeks old and they shampooed it with something that made the skin blue.

I would run far, far away from that breeder. There are way more important things to consider than colour when choosing a puppy, and any breeder that charges a higher price for a dilute dog is not an ethical breeder.

My goodness, sometimes I need to read a story like this just to realize how bad it is out there, as far as this "color" thing is concerned. What is wrong with people? SMH. "Special shampoo"? Wow. To the OP, I'm sorry you're limited in what is available......but you should take all the advice given and not purchase from this so called breeder. Keep looking and asking questions.........and hopefully your search will be rewarded. I applaud your questioning this breeder's tactics....but now you know the real situation. Time to look elsewhere. I don't know what those breeders are charging in your locale, but maybe it's worth having the genuine article shipped to you. Good Luck!

Yeah, I know it looks like the breeder is trying to fool potential owners by dyeing the puppy's coat which is really strange because the dye WILL eventually wash off and the true color will show. It's a pretty normal behavior for the country, though, unfortunately. So I'm not surprised.

But the mom is really nice. I spent almost an hour with the pup and mom, and she was as calm and well behaved as it gets. So I didn't feel there were any temperament issues I should be worried about (assuming the dog they showed me is indeed the pup's mom lol).

Shipping from the US is out of question because the prices here are considerably lower and I cannot afford paying $3,000+shipping for the dog. Actually, the only reason I'm even paying for a dog is because I REALLY want a pit and it has to be purebred. They are the sweetest dogs on earth!

3,000? You're looking at the wrong breeders here man. Price does not always reflect quality, remember that.

Also, why are you looking at AmStaffs if you want a purebred Pit Bull? They're two separate breeds so that totally defeats the purpose...

I think you need to go back to the drawing board and do more research before impulse buying a puppy.

I don't consider them to be two separate breeds, but I would much rather not get into this discussion.

And there are no pit bulls in my country that are purebred, our kennel club doesn't recognize them, just like AKC. We only have amstaffs, and I could care less whether the paper says amstaff or pit bull as long as I can get some proof they are purebred and have a good bloodline of non-fighting dogs. I know Amstaffs are wider and pit bulls are leaner & more agile.

" ....purebred and have a good bloodline of non-fighting dogs"? I'm not even sure what you are looking for now..........but I know it ain't an APBT.

My suggestion would be to go to some dog shows for the breed you are interested in. Get to know some of the handlers and owners and ask questions. Look at pedigrees and the dogs in the pedigrees to see if that is the kind of dog you want. Then make an educated decision as to which kennel/breeder you would trust to purchase a puppy from.
And to answer your question about blue dogs. If the coat is a greyish color, then it is considered blue. My boy has red highlights. They get more noticeable when we spend a lot of time in the sun.
Also, if the nose is blue and not black or red, then it is a blue nose. But having a blue nose denotes nothing but the color of the dogs nose and does not refer to the dogs lines.

There are some great Amstaffs available in Ukraine and closer surrounding countries. Don't buy from this 'breeder'.

yeah, well, we do have enough of them, but they are mostly red/fawn/white/black/brindle mix of colors. I guess I will try finding pure black or pure seal, these should be easier than blue.

P.S. The breeder never called her bluenose, they called her just blue (as in coat color). It was me who called her bluenose because I've seen so much info about this and I thought that blue coat color means bluenose lol.

P.P.S. Isn't she cute, though? Just because the breeder is trying to sell her at a higher price, doesn't really mean she's a bad puppy, no?

Send a message via AIM to Indie
first red flag: breeding a blue to a blue. Double dilute= health problems.

second red flag: documentation that dogs are in fact "bluenose." What documentation is that, exactly? Breeders/owners send in the registration with the dog's color on it, but that is about it....

Third red flag: Charging more, simply for the color of the puppy.

The dogs look okay. I like the male, the bitch is a little sloppy for my taste, with excessive skin and bulk. Pup has a nice front.

Also.. the puppy is what is considered "blue." If you were looking for a smurf blue, then I'm sorry, but that does not occur naturally. The shampoo they have is not to dye the coat. It is to enhance the color of the coat. It can prevent fading and bleaching of darker coats, and other kinds can remove discoloration of white/light coats.

You sound like you did a little research, but not much.

ALL APBT's and Am Staffs can trace their roots back to fighting dogs. Some closer than others. APBTs and Am Staffs are and are not the same breed. Some dogs are dual registered as both breeds, so the lines are blurred.

If you are looking to avoid a dog aggressive dog, then APBTs or any other terrier are not the breed for you.
