Hi I am new to the site, the guy I bought my pitbull off of says it is a blue nosed pitbull, I am aware that is not a breed. She is about 3 months old, has big paws and pretty bulky muscles. She looks pure to me, just want to get some other opinions, thanks.

Hello & welcome... as far as your pup is concerned you really can't tell by looking at 'em, but if you have a pedigree you can post or some names of parents or kennel where your pup came from it might help us figure it out and help you..

Thanks for the replies, both of you are absolutely right and I am aware you cannot tell for sure without papers. But what I am asking is that if she looks exactly like a pitbull, what can she most likely be mixed with?

No papers, no known history, no idea. Mutts can easily be confused with pure bred dogs and if you rescued what the HSUS (or where you rescued) labeled a "Pit Bull"... Is not an actual breed itself but rather a generalized grouping of several breeds grouped as one. Also, if you bought from a BYB or someone peddling off pups in some form or another, you can't trust what they say as they will tell a novice anything and everything to sell a pup. Papers or no papers, it happens quite frequently that BYB's will paper hang or steal other peds and claim them to be theirs for their yard.

Also, you have what appears through the photos as a white dog with spotting and a black nose. No "blue nose" there.. As you seem to know already, "____ nose" is just a color of the nose and does not define any breed nor does it define any bloodline.

American Pit Bull Terriers are not defined by appearance but rather defined by ability and function.. They are working hounds bred down from a purpose instilled and perfected in the 1800's..and up until 1976 in the United States.. At least modern. These dogs are raw athletes and can perform and excel in just about any working related activity there is.. Including sports.

Just by "looking" at a picture on here you can't say oh thats an APBT or that or this.. With a trained eye you may be able to provide a best guess of bloodline if there are characteristics that can be seen but even then its not going to be accurate 100%..

I don't know how your area is with BSL or other type laws surrounding these hounds but to save you head ache i would just call your pup a Mutt or an American Bully mix.. Just call her what she is and you don't know so don't label her something shes not. ;)

Without papers who knows if she is mixed. And papers can sometimes be false so it all relies on your trust with your breeder. As far as blue nose is concerned....her nose looks black. It's as simple as just looking at the dogs' nose Haha black nose, red nose, blue nose, brown nose its all just colors none is better than the other.

"brown nose" would be under the rednose category.
Just sayin.

As far as the pup goes;
It is very hard to tell at a young age.
As she matures you will start to see a more distinguished look,
at that point you may beable to say "oh I think she is mixed with ____"

But without papers you cannot be sure.
Also,be aware that if you are not buying from a reputable breeder you may get bunked up papers. Papers,even, sometimes do not prove your getting a purebred.
Research,research,research--That is key.

I have a strong feeling she is purebred by the way she acts, and tries to challenge dogs 4 times her size lol, by the way her eyes are brown but one of them are half blue, she is 4 months, I think that is really cool, what are the chances of her eye staying like this?

Challenging has nothing to do with anything..

Do yourself and your :pup: a favor and quit worrying about wether a non registered non papered dog is PURE BLOOD... Its these unregistered neighborhood bred APBTs that get out an cause ruckus.. Its not a dog from any proven producer doin all this ..

So please, understand that the ORIGINAL Bulldog went into the PIT and was forever dubbed "pit bull" .. SO in this .. be proud of the bulldog(s) you have and in NO way continue to breed let unregistered dogs in your ownership be bred.. Avoid the political crossfire and enjoy your bulldog they are the best..

NOW if your really concerned about purity, and have the urges to get your own yard, have your current dogs sterilized, and keep doing your homework... The right registered properly bred :pup: will fall into your lap..


A bulldog .......... Nothing more nothing less..............

:goodpost::goodpost: Got to spread the love again but exactly! Theres nothing wrong with a mutt or an unknown dog, many unknowns become excellent family pets.. Unless you were aiming to get yourself a worker or a structure correct hound for showing, you got what many want.. Just a great pet.

People (in general) need to quit worrying about what they have when they rescue or get them from a BYB.. If you wanted something more you should of waited and did more diggin and research.

Just relax, welcome aboard and enjoy your new family member. We aren't trying to push you out and we have a diverse community here with all sorts of owners and handlers..

I can tell she will be one of the most muscular pits on here
Me and my woman are both members on here and I can tell you from sitting back and looking at pics she shows me from here that these dogs are that way due to a lot of work from the owner. You have no genetic background on your bitch which means you have nothing to play off of as far as lineage,bloodlines,ect. Though genetics play a big role in muscle production generally it is the effort from the owner that really makes any dog excel muscle wise. The people on this forum (many of them as I can see) put A LOT of time and money into thier dogs. No dog will naturally be as fit as these dogs. So is it possible for your bitch to be as muscular as these dogs, yes. But genetics play a role which you know nothing of and you have to be ready to put lots of time and effort into her. Currently my woman and I have our male APBT working a flirt EVERY single day for as long as he keeps going, pulling weights, and spring pole. These are some serious dog men and women who not only love their dogs but provide them with jobs to keep not only muscle mass BUT a overall sound dog. This breed needs a job, they are not your average run of the mill couch potato dog.

I will also touch on the bases of your dogs pure or unpure. Just as the above stated she is a "Pit bull",yes. Pit Bull is a generic term to cover any dogs that seem to have any characteristics look wise of a APBT,AST,AB,ect. Without papers in reality you have nothing more and nothing less. Speaking realistically your dog without papers is a mutt. Not bashing,just stating. I also have a mutt lab. Nothing wrong with that. Just realize that regardless of her unknown background you need to take proper precautions to prevent her from being another "Media engulfed pit bull" and be a responsible owner. What one "pit bull" does negative reflects on all of us owners. My woman can't even walk our APBT without people yanking their kids aside,that's sick.

Also, Your puppy "challenging" other dogs 4 times her size no way implements her being purebred, Just a ballsy puppy.

All the challenging shows is a dominate gene that has surfaced, any breed of any size can have this.

Everyone thinks they want a fighting dog but hardly anyone has the means and will to properly take care of one. These hounds are just that, come down from lines of the [] and genetically instilled from traits of the era. Hardly anyone knows what real drive looks like, much less how to control it.

If you don't know 100% what you are feeding call that pup what it is and avoid political agendas, BSL and show some respect for those that breed and handle these hounds.. Both past and present.

Bottom line without a pedigree you have a mutt you don't have a pure bred anything. A mix is just a mix it doesn't make it one breed or another without a pedigree your dog could be mixed with anything and because of BSL it's impossible to speculate or mislabel your dog with another breed. Labeling mutt's as a Pit Mix only hurts the APBT in the end where BSL is concerned these so called experts in the field see it as one drop of APBT blood makes them an APBT and that is wrong since all breeds have a designated purpose and were selected for specific traits and function. If you simply refer to the dog as an unknown mix no one can speculate anything. Paper's only matter to those breeding dog's for a purpose and since your dog is a pet from unknown linage just love it as so and give it the best life possible don't get caught up in the hoopla as it doesn't matter where your dog is concerned.
