i adopted a puppy pitbull because the lady who got her brought her home and her land lord said she couldn't stay. so i found her on craigslist and got her. anyways seeings that i don't know how the parents are and she doesn't have papers is there any way at all to know the bloodline? maybe physical traits to get me an idea? i know without papers and knowing who the parents are i can't get a 100% answer but i can atleast get maybe a guess on what she is. she's a red nose 5 1/2 old more on the chocolate side, gorgeous dog!

Without papers there is no way to know the bloodline. Nose color and coat are just that... colors :) Just enjoy her as your pet and good luck.

yeah, but theres no way to tell physically? at all lol
No. There is no way to tell physically without papers you can only guess. What's the big deal anyways? Your not planning on breeding I hope. Without knowing where she came from and her background you shouldn't breed. That's just assumption not saying that you are. Just enjoy her as a pet as Lauren said. Oh.....and show us some pictures of your new girl :)

She is precious :) hope you stay around here. Great place to learn and just talk about the breed we all love. I like the fact that you are educated enough to know that there are so many unwanted pits that sit in shelters and get PTS. She will have a great long life with you :)

Nice puppy. :) I should add to what has already been said, not all dogs have a bloodline. For a bloodline to be present, somebody would have to be linebreeding the dogs to stay within a certain family. (Unless its an outcross, in which case people would list two or more bloodlines, like Sierra/Gaff or Jeep/Redboy.) But with I'm guessing the majority of dogs out there, people picked a dog they liked and bred it to another dog they liked. Offspring of that union was bred to another dog that someone thought was pretty, and so on. What you end up with is a mish-mash of dogs that don't adhere to any one bloodline, although they are the same breed.

As said, bloodline only really means something to those interested in perpetuating a certain line. True, it may give you a little indicator of potential health/temperament problems and the like, but its really not that critical to most people.
