well Blue is just a color, not a breed, without papers you can never really tell what you have, so just love the dog and go from there. If you like the look of a crop, get a crop, not all Pit Bulls have a crop, so it doesn't really matter if it is or isn't, a crop is your decision. Cute pup BTW

With the shape of those ears he very well could be a weimaraner and not a pit bull, but until he matures more it would be hard to say for sure. If he is a mix of multiple breeds he could resemble either as well.

like mentioned above with out papers you will never know, if you could get a pic from the front or standing with the build of the dog i would be able to tell a little better if it were a pitbull type dog or not, he is very cute though thanks for rescuing him..

The weimeriners I have met have this absolutely silky soft coat like I have never felt on any other dog { well actually our friends have a neo mastiff with a similar coat } I think that is one of the things that breed is known for so that may give you a clue. Otherwise like mentioned above hard to tell for sure especially if its mixed. Im with the post above though would like to see some better pictures in natural light and from the side standing up. Its a really cute pup regardless of the breed :)

Cute pup but hard to say for sure what he is. Need to have a side picture of him standing and maybe one frontal veiw too. The ears dont look pit bull.

LOl dont let the ears fool you , Luna had ears like that we called her donkey till they got cropped lol. The head shape in the 2nd pic looks diff to me though then the typical pit bull head shape.
Lunas Donkey ears LOL

Looks like more weimeraner to me especially with the longer muzzle as well as the long ears. Surprised no one cared to ask why you are cropping a shelter dogs ears in the first place? Isn't that against adoption rules? I would be more concerned with having him neutered since he is a rescue and not a purebred. He is a cutie pie though :)

not sure if i did this right... but ya he is from the animal shelter... and hes already neutered... im not really sure about the rules for ear cropping with the animal shelter... but they said they would come to the house to check if he was outside (which he never is unless its to use the restroom n eat) and they havent... but today when i get home ill take a pic of him in the sun

"pitbull expert" ,eh? LMFAO!
Then he surely should have told you that dog is a mutt.
May have pit in him but without papers you have a mutt.

Don't take that negative, I own 2 mutts but I also own a papered APBT and that my friend is not a pure blood anything. An adorable pup,but not pure.

Leave the ears he's animal shelter dog. FYI weimeraners are where blue labs come from. Looks iffy to me.
