From what I've read she is an excellent trainer but living on the other side of the world from you guys makes it hard to know what to believe. That said, she should probably refrain from presenting her opinions as fact. There is some really interesting stuff on her site but the Amstaff/Mastiff thing just strikes me as ridiculous.

I am sure I have replied on this topic before, but I will again. Of course it is just my opinion/thought, but here goes...

I believe that present day, the blue color in pitbulls is attributed to amstaff blood. Maybe 90 years ago, there were blue game-bred dogs, but 99% of the ones seen nowadays can be traced back to ast blood in the pedigree. It is a dilute color, and IMO does not just pop up.
If you go back far enough in the pedigree you will see amstaff in most blue dogs pedigrees. I have heard "stories" of people with blue dogs that are pure gamebred dogs, such as Lonzo, Chinaman, eli and other lines....However, when this supposed dilute color just shows up, it is usually in people's yards that are not well known or newbies ...which leads me to think "hung papers". Since it is a little strange to me that breeders like Lonzo, Boudreaux, ect breed blalc to black for many generations, but blue does not just "pop" up in their lines, directly from their yards.

Now when I see a nice looking blue apbt on the street or at a show, do I think AMSTAFF? No, I think show bred pit bull, because most blue dogs are pitterstaffs. I personally don't consider Amstaff a four letter word like many APBT people do.

I actually do not care for the solid blues much anymore myself, as it seems to be a favorite newbie color and many backyard breeders and ambullies specialize in it.

Can a blue dog be "game"? Yes, if all that is in there is amstaff and pit bull, yes they could be, but are they gamebred....No, not in my opinion.

Can there be athletic, correct, hard working blue dogs? Yes, there is, I have seen them and owned them.

There's an article in the ADBA Gazette this month which references a blue dog from way back in the day. I'd be inclined to believe they existed. Just like I think if you inbreed enough, you can bring out blue just like any other recessive trait. I do not assert that there are a lot of pure gamebred blue dogs nowadays -- I think a lot do go back to AmStaff -- but I don't necessarily believe that all of them have to be AmStaff-bred. I tend to take DJ statements with a grain of salt anyway.

Simple, and direct. I share this view until I read anything credible stating otherwise.

Love the way ypu put things plainly yet to the point. Where have you been?

Most likely isolating the gene pool by closing the AKC studbook caused the recessive dilution trait to become more pronounced. But if you think about it, the AKC standard actually discourages the diluted pigment (as well as rednose) wheras the APBT standards don't touch on color except to discourage merle. So by that logic, would blue be an APBT color more than an AmStaff color? All the top-winning AmStaffs seem to be red or brindle with strong black pigment, but in the UKC, its mostly blue fawns.
With posts like these, this is becoming a fantastic thread, even though the topic has been discussed before...great info.

What I don't get is why we are constantly reminded blue isn't it's own color - that it's 'just a dilute'. If it's been consistently producing through multiple generations without hiccups - wouldn't that make it it's own color?

If it takes 7 consistent generations for a mix to become it's own breed. How many will it take before the blue gets recognition of being it's own color for apbt or amstaff? The UKC sees it as fit.

Also, if Blue is a dilute of black... Then what is chocolate?
Great point to ponder, as well as the chocolate color question being raised. Great post, at first I thought you were a regular petbull owner as myself, I see more and more now that you are pretty knowledgeable and need to pay attention more when you write. Great post. I could learn a lot from you.

The American Staffordshire was indeed bred from the American Pit Bull Terrier, but they were bred differently by using Mastiff lines. The American Pit Bull Terrier was bred from Bulldogs and Terriers. Blue is not a Bulldog color. The American Staffordshire was bred from Bulldogs and (occasionally) Mastiffs. Blue is a Mastiff color. So it is entirely possible that the blue gene would not show up in APBTs, but would show itself in AmStaffs.
I'm not sure if I agree with you on this, I would love to know where you got this info from, not arguing, just need more info, thanks for helping to make this a seriously interesting thread.

Well then thru the AKC the dogs where bred for show rather than the working purpose of the APBT. The APBT maintained its working figure and the Amstaff developed into a Show style dog.


As far as Blue goes the APBT can come in blue.. Since they can come in black.. Blue was actually unacceptable in the AKC AmStaffs. The standard for the AmStaff calls for a defiantly black nose. So you can't have blues. However now a days you do see blues winning and no regard to the standard due to the popularity of the color.
Holly, this post is probably one of the best posts in a thread that is full of fantastic, well written posts. You seriously are so important to us here. If you stopped signing in to GP, I would pour gasoline over myself and light a match in protest!!!!!!

I wish Tara was here she had all the great articles about blue gamebred dogs! They did happen and there were a few that were matched.
The color was not desired and was culled at birth or not matched but it was there. It became popular and then an explosions of blue mixed breeds being called APBT's took off, then you have the creation of the bully. Ok I skipped a few steps and some history but that is it in a nut shell.
Do not go by what Diane says as cold hard facts, it is more the opinion of Diane not real facts.

Interesting that last time I talked about her she called me, I wonder if she will call me again. Has anyone else who disagreed with her get a phone call? just wondering...... lmao
If it weren't for this " inside info" I wouldnt know any better, if i could only pick your brain for a few days.
