My friends (who have 2 kids of their own-a newborn baby and 2year old) have two full blood pits and in April they had a litter of 13 pups and asked if I wanted one...for free!!!
I got the lucky opportunity of getting first pick, a blue eyed male, he was the biggest of the whole litter.
Sorry for the long post but I have a few questions.....
Goose was born April 12 2017 and today weighs just over 20 lbs.
Judging by his parents(the Mom is the black one in the pics) what type of pitbull is he and how big will he get? I want him to be huge.
Is his coat blue fawn or champagne(if theres a difference)?
Lastly, is he blue or red?
I've read about the diluted genes but when I take him places(he goes everywhere w me) I get mixed responses. Everyone says he is a blue nose but my research tells me his is a red nose w the diluted gene.
Hey there Goosegoose! Goose sure is a cute pup. While you may have been around dogs your entire life, it seems you may be new to the bull breeds based on some of your questions.
First, there is only one kind of pit bull, the American Pit Bull Terrier. There are other bulldogs, American Bully, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, etc, but only one pit bull. If you're Gooses parents are pure, they have papers and you can research the pedigrees to determine the type of bull breed Goose is. Without papers, regardless of what anyone tells you, the dog is not pure bred and is considered a mutt (dog of mixed breeding). True pit bulls are NOT big dogs. They top out weight wise around 55-60 lbs and are considered a medium breed. So if your Goose IS a pit bull, he will not be huge. A good rule of thumb is to double their weight at 4 mos, which would mean your Goose would be around 40-45 lbs roughly since he's just about 4 mos old now. That is an average size for a pit bull.
He looks champagne to me for what it's worth.
Finally there is no such thing as a blue nose/red nose pit bull. All that does is describe a nose color, which means nothing. Blue and red are coat colors but clearly Goose is neither.
I hope that helps. Kudos to you for trying to do some research just be careful of your sources. If they start talking about nose colors as types of pit bulls or talking about "huge" pit bulls they are misleading you. Most of the dogs people consider "huge pit bulls" are American Bully dogs, not pit bulls.
