Blue Nose Pitbull
This breed of Pitbull is very similar to the Blue Fawn and also has a sliver pattern their coats. But unlike the Fawn a Blue Nose Pit has a gray looking nose that almost looks blue. Selective breeding has allowed many Pitbull breeders to produce these amazing looking dogs. These Pitbulls are highly sought after by those looking for a family pet because they are considered the most docile of all Pitbull types. While these dogs are very gentle around humans they don’t always get along with other dog breeds. So you will have to carefully watch these dogs around other animals.
