Color? Is he full or mix pitbull?

This is our new pup Loki.
He has 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye.
Been trying to do some research on this breed since this little man fell into our laps (rescue). So from looking online he looks like his color could be "seal", and we've had some say he may be mixed with something else (because of his eye color) and had one lady who raised 2 pitbulls say he may be full pit. So would love to get more perspective from you guys. Doesn't really matter what color or if he's full breed or not, he's our little man now, but interested in learning. Someone else decided they didn't want him and he ended up dropped off in our neighborhood (found him in our yard).

Loki is a good looking pup. Don't see many odd eyed. Looks like he may have some bully in him, those legs and paws are pretty big. Without having pedigree papers showing his lineage nobody can tell you what breed the dog is and I'm glad that it doesn't matter to you, and it shouldn't.
Thank you very much for the great pictures and I wish you both many happy years together. Hope you stick around so we can watch Loki grow up.

Thank you, hope to gain lots of knowledge here as Loki grows.
Our other fur kid is Bella, she adopted us when she was 7 weeks old, she's now 8 yrs old. She's a Great Dane mix, big gal at 135. She's doing amazing with Loki, so proud of her stepping in to help teach him things he needs to learn. He tries to nurse from her (she's never had pups of her own & was fixed long ago). Is this normal for a pup of 13 weeks? Bella never tried that with our female boxer when she was little (boxer passed a few yrs ago).

I believe the DNA testing has gotten better with vet officies to get a better answer, before the wisdom panel handled most of it and only had samples off known and confiscated fighting dogs for years. There may be an answer to the question if you talk to your vet, and I'd look in to outside DNA profiling companies in case they have a better less then $200 test options then the wisdom panels small collection of what they can match him to as far as if he's related. Though the two eye colors are rare it does happen but I agree most likely not pure bred APBT but you never know I've been wrong before and I don't want to discourage you, just giving you the positive vibes of an actual chance to find out since DNA testing has come a long way in recent years

We did a DNA test on our Dane mix Bella, they didn't ask for any information about her or a picture, it came back pretty much what we expected, so I believe they are pretty accurate now. We knew she was at very least half Great Dane and knew she had Collie somewhere in her background because of severe reactions to some medicines, we had a feeling she could have some Lab also. So results came back and she's 50% Great Dane, 25% Lab, 12.5% Collie, and 12.5% Golden Retriever. The only surprise to us was the Golden Retriever.
Maybe when he gets a little older we may decide to test Loki, for right now being we just got him (like 11 days ago) we want to make sure he's healthy, happy and to find out more about what we can expect of him being at least part pitbull.
